prince william forest campground wedding
Nestled in the woods of Prince William Forest park, Triangle Virginia, Karaline & Robby officially wed. These two love hiking + camping, and wanted to incorporate the outdoors as much as possible into their day, so this off the grid campground was the perfect space! Karaline & Robby are currently living in Washington state, & wanted to bring some PNW vibes + inspo to VA, so they did so with ferns in the floral arrangements + throughout the reception decor, bridesmaid colors, etc.
Kara & her girls got ready at the historic campground infirmary (Karaline’s younger sis also did her make up, as well as many of the bridesmaids makeup), while Robby and his guys got ready in his dads RV (that was driven all the way from Georgia — to also note). The ceremony took place in a campfire ring, the arbor + platform was built over a fire pit, and the reception took place at the dining hall.
This day also had a ton of DIY projects — Karaline and her ladies made all of the bouquets + boutonnieres + flower crowns, Robby’s sister did all of the calligraphy on the signs, Karaline's dad cut & branded all of the wooden party favors, and Karaline dried all of the wildflowers (which are also from Washington state) that are in the table number settings. Robby also gifted his groomsmen custom leather suspenders that they wore on the day. Their wedding day was also Karaline’s great grandmothers 100th birthday, so they made her a sweet little cake and celebrated her at the reception!
This party in the woods, at this beauty place so close to home, was one I’ll never forget. Love these two + their fams more than they know, & be on the lookout for another lengthy, but oh so lovely post showcasing their intimate vow ceremony that took place back at their current home, the pacific northwest.
