The Theme for This Leonard Lake Reserve Wedding was Summer Camp, But Make It Fashion

December 6, 2018 | juliette

Ashley and Justin’s Leonard Lake Reserve wedding had a distinct summer camp vibe but with a super chic twist! The couple made sure their laid-back personalities guided every decision of their wedding day and made for the coziest outdoor celebration with friends and family. But, for an element of sophisticated fun, the bride chose a sexy, modern bell-sleeve gown from Loho Bride and the groom rocked a Giorgio Armani — both of which provided a stunning contrast to their otherwise campy aesthetic. And, yes, we’re all in for this unexpected yet complementary style combination! Randi Kreckman did a phenomenal job capturing every nuance and dreamy moment of this wedding, from the couple’s secluded first look in the forest to their golden hour portraits in the open fields.

The Couple:

Ashley and Justin

The Wedding:

Leonard Lake Reserve, Redwood Valley, California

Our wedding was at a nature reserve with a beautiful lake and several unique cabins surrounding it. We invited our friends and family to stay the weekend with us on the property because we really wanted it to feel like a relaxing vacation. We are very laid-back and love the outdoors, so we wanted our wedding to reflect that. Leonard Lake Reserve was the only place we looked at and it was perfection! It had enough room to house all our guests, was a nice place to relax, swim, and play during the days, and had the right aesthetic.

The first look was the most memorable part of our wedding. We choose to exchange our vows privately in a circle of redwood trees before our official ceremony with our friends and family. It was a beautifully magical setting and we were happy that we planned in one-on-one time because the rest of the time we were partying with the guests.

We mixed a custom essential oil blend and gave that blend in a roller to each guest. We both choose three scents that reminded us of the other person and mixed them together to create our wedding scent.

Processional – “Voila” by Frances Hardy
Recessional – “My Heart’s on Fire” by Lil Bob the Lollipops
First Dance – “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young
