Camp weddings, one of our favorites! Nestled in the north woods at Camp Lakotah alongside Little Hills Lake, Noah & Liz's camp wedding turned out gorgeous!  They decked out their day with a sense of rustic woods of memorable, custom wood built details, campfires and smore's. This definitely made for one of the prettiest celebrations!

A big thanks to LUXE Photo Company for capturing these stunning moments!

If you are having a winter wedding, collecting pine cones from your backyard or wooded area is a great source instead of buying pine cones, all thanks to nature. Turn these pine cones into place cards via Project Wedding.

I love this Mr. and Mrs. gold chair sign Elli created with this how to guide!

This greenery is so lovely to incorporate as garland for Mr. and Mrs. chairs. You can purchase greenery, such as bay leaves or eucalyptus from a farmer's market, Costco or grow it in your backyard depending on where you live. Greenery is much more cost effective than flowers. Here is a great DIY guide to creating this garland from Free People

Via Catch My Party

Personalize the small details like these cute stir sticks. You can purchase the straws in any color from Target and create gold hearts with name tags of your initials or a favorite saying of yours. You can adhere the name tags to the hearts and then glue the hearts directly on to the straw all with a glue gun. Ok, if you can't tell, I am kind of in love with Target!

Find candle sticks, mason jars, votive holders and wine bottles, most likely laying around your house somewhere and spray paint those babies gold or your select wedding color. It's amazing how spray paint can turn anything into something fabulous!
