Lara and Chase’s dreamy autumnal wedding took place at Whispering Pines Christian Camp, an unexpectedly perfect spot for a cozy celebration and stunning photo opportunities. Moody dark tones like maroons, plums, and black set the romantic vibes that echoed the romantic floral and reception décor and the groom’s fashionable tie and pinecone boutonniere. All of these DIY’d details are on point: from the chalkboard ceremony signage to the fun taco bar. We love this alternative bride’s ethereal floral headband, deep berry lip, and simply elegant gown from David’s Bridal. Swak Photography captured the couple truly in their element exploring the campground and taking a canoe out for a quick spin with a stunning backdrop of changing leaves.

Being a photographer, our number one priority was choosing a photographer.
Just breathe. Don’t over stress because I promise you the day of none of it matters because you are marrying your true love. Everything you stressed about you will forget.
Swak Photography was outstanding. She is so professional and so much fun. She knew exactly what we wanted and exceeded all our expectations.
Our venue was actually my church camp growing up. Honestly had no desire to get married there at first and then I started imaging it in my head and it was absolutely perfect.
The most memorable part of the day was dancing for sure. My husband and I are huge dancers.
Honestly the whole ceremony space was DIY. My mom andaunt put in such hard work to make it as amazing as it was!
