Back in September, we took a mini-break in the middle the month to get away, get rested, + get rejuvenated. An incredibly talented wedding planning duo here in Madison, Sarah + Andrea of Cherry Blossom Events, had a dream to create a place for Wisconsin wedding creatives to go + find community, rest, + inspiration in the middle of their busy season. Hence, Camp Wedding was born : ) I am so proud + impressed by these two ladies for not just having a dream + pursuing it, but making it come to life. A dream that gave back to so many wedding creatives in our community who really needed it at a busy time of the year + who I know left feeling reenergized + ready to finish their wedding seasons strong! Today on the blog, I simply wanted to share some images from our time at Camp Wedding!!
The getaway took place at the famous Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin — a place that Caleb + I had only heard + seen pictures of, but were dying to experience first hand. I can now speak from experience when I say that this place is truly magical! I mean it. It’s hard to describe Camp Wandawega in words … absolutely adorable with stylish cabins, a beach on a quaint lake, vintage coffee mugs for your fresh cup o’ joe every morning, tandem bikes, tepee tents … I mean, just SO darn cool. A place that totally cultivates rest + creativity (in our opinions at least)!!
Over the couple of days we spent at Camp Wedding (Caleb was one of two guys at the retreat — he rocks!), we heard from motivational speakers, learned the arts of chalkboard design, sketching, + cocktail mixology, + simply had time to …. well … do nothing. We laid in hammocks, climbed in the treehouse, + enjoyed locally catered gourmet box lunches on the pier : ) On the last night of Camp Wedding, Sarah + Andrea put together the most GORGEOUS dinner catered by celebrity chef Scotty Wagner + complete with hanging garden lights, champagne toasts, floral centerpieces + personalized wood-burned place settings. They simply wanted us to enjoy a beautiful wedding reception-style meal with no obligations other than to eat, drink, + be merry! The perfect ending to an already incredible time away : )
A great getaway indeed : )
