Here is how I imagine a camp-themed weekend-long wedding in the Southern Appalachia region:

Camp elements, like compass favors, canoes, lanterns, and s’mores.
Local blooms, like dogwood, and maybe some azalea of you want pink.
Unique touches, like biodegradable confetti, a groom in a white camp shirt and sneakers, and a save-the-date inspired by love carved into the side of a tree.

Mood: family camp fun
Palette: natural browns, green, white

    This idea is so much fun! I can also envision some very chic lounge chairs and side tables spread out all over. Again, what a fun idea!

    K – what can I say, you’ve done it again!!! Beautiful, this board is fabulous. You put together a casually elegant campfire inspired affair! I don’t know which element I like most – - – the compasses, the engraved stationery, the canoes, the s’mores…oh! I just can’t decide.

    My hubby and I also got married at the summer camp that I grew up at. I had patches made for the favor. Embossed invites with mountains. Silver stars (pipecleaners) hung every where, with white lights…It was just what I wanted. This was lots of fun! thanks for sharing~Carrie
