Thomas and Erin’s Angelus Mountain Center Summer Camp Wedding

When I first met with Erin and Thomas and they told me about their plans for a summer camp wedding at Angelus Mountain Center, I was so excited. They had everything you would hope for from camp wedding – cute little cabins, bunting and wild flower decor, deer running around the venue. Other personal touches that made the day really special were Erin’s mom making the top of her dress, using dahlias in the bouquets and decor as a nod to Erin’s great grandfather who was a famous dahlia grower, and the home brew beer that Thomas made and Erin designed cool, clever labels for. All of which added up to a wonderfully sweet day and cozy, fun night.
