Melissa and Shane Wedding at YMCA Camp Ockanickon
Event Date: September 19, 2015
Congratulations to Melissa and Shane on their marriage! Melissa and Shane were more than just happy campers when these two tied the knot in the great outdoors at YMCA’s Camp Ockanickon in Medford, NJ.
Melissa and Shane’s wedding was absolutely stunning in the simplest forms. You really felt like you were transported back to your childhood camp days with big lakes, barns, canoes and campfires.
This couple’s wedding was very laid back and casual, with the groom and groomsmen wearing blue plaid button down shirts and khakis, while the bridesmaids wore pale yellow sun dresses with colorful heels to match the flower arrangements. This didn’t stop Melissa from being a complete show stopper though in her gorgeous lace gown with crystal beaded sleeves and bodice and bright and colorful flower hair piece and bouquet which accentuated fall and the beauty of the wild.
The ceremony took place outside right next to a large lake, which our NJ Wedding Photographer had a a lot of fun capturing. It was also fun to work with the bridal party, as they were a great group filled with quirky ideas to go along with their laid back and adventurous theme.
The reception took place inside a barn where the most adorable lights were strung across the ceiling to make it feel like the barn became a ballroom. Beautiful vintage accent pieces made this outdoorsy camp theme feel elegant and timeless along with a playfulness given by the camp’s actual decorations as well. Even the cake resembled a tree, which really brought in that outdoors theme. Their unique cake had their initials carved into it inside a heart like you would on a tree with your camp crush and was accented by stunning fall colored flowers.
Guests had a great time reliving their camp days with Melissa and Shane. Many laughs and memories were made this night, and we were honored to have been able to have been apart of it all. Congratulations once again, Melissa and Shane!
