A Camping Wedding 

A Weddings By Event Kings Wedding 

One of our favorite things when we meeting a new bride is hearing her vision they have in their head and then asking us “Is this possible?” That is what we encountered with one of our latest brides who dreamed of having a camping themed wedding. The bride and groom’s favorite past time consists of all types of outdoor activities, and it was important to them to express that through their wedding.

Both ceremony and reception were held at a beautiful East Hampton campground that the couple had camped out at in the past. The ceremony space was hidden in the depths of the woods in a clear open space overlooking Gardiners Bay.

Guests walked up a scenic path and were met with a rustic pavilion that held the reception. Long picnic tables with burlap runners, small tree stumps and bud vases added to the camping feel. Glowing bistro lighting were strung from the pavilion, creating the feeling that everyone was dancing under the stars. Guests were entertained with ping pong tables, corn hold and giant jenga as the night went on.

As the sun set, a custom made s’mores table was brought out as a to take a to-go treat as they all headed over to the bride and groom’s campsite to enjoy an end of the night bonfire.

Photo Prep For The Big Day

Wedding Tip Of The Week

After your big day is complete, your wedding photos are the lasting images that you will have forever. Every bride has her own vision on how she wants her photos to look and what style they should be, which can cause a lot of stress.

Event Kings Director of Media, Pat O’Brien, has two tips for today’s brides. The first is to do some research. Take a little time, sit at the computer and flip through Google and Pinterest to find some inspiration for the different photos that fit your style. Start a Pinterest board just for photos you like- once you’ve done your investigation, you can translate this into a shot list of your must haves, or if your photographer is media trendy- even share your board with them. 

Pat’s second tip is to trust your professional. “They know what is and isn’t going to look good. They also understand their camera and the lighting of the area you are shooting in. We want to get our clients input, but we also want them to trust our experience.”

So do a little exploration, trust your photographer and enjoy taking the photos on your big day! If you’re happy in the moment, it will definitely shine through in your photos.
