Lauren + Daniel wanted a unique and fun “wedding extravaganza” that would be more of a weekend event rather than just a one day celebration. They had their wedding weekend at The Camp in Bat Cave, NC. We had so much fun with these guys! It was quite a wedding day adventure, read more to find out why...
“The rustic location was perfect for a rather small wedding, away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. We love the location of The Camp because it was a unique and fun environment where our wedding party and guests could enjoy themselves while celebrating a special union.” – Lauren
“The rustic location was very fitting when the weather took an interesting turn; storms starting at 5:30 a.m., a landslide that knocked the power out creating a powerless ceremony indoors, a bat flying through the gym during the candle and flashlight lit ceremony. When it comes to planning a wedding, you have to be flexible and laugh it off when things don't go as planned, like when the marriage license caught on fire! The beauty of it was that we still got married that day (the true reason we went to Bat Cave that weekend) with our close friends and family there to celebrate with us, in a place where God's creation really stood out, despite the sun not there to shine.” – Lauren
“The ring I wore on my right hand is a family ring. It was my great grandmother’s and is a star sapphire which is also significant as my birthstone is a sapphire.As for the other jewelry, my earrings and bracelet were yellow to reflect one of the wedding colors-blue and yellow.Something old: yellow earringsSomething new: yellow wedge TomsSomething borrowed: great grandmother’s ringSomething blue: UNC garter.” – Lauren

Even though the power was out…. these girls still had a blast together as they looked out the window to see what was going on outside, waiting for the power to come back on...
Meanwhile…. the guys were having a blast at the pool!
And then they headed off for their own adventure…. LOL
Hmmm….was this the REAL reason why the power went out? (bahahahhaa)
Back at the girl’s cabin, the girls watched as the man came to set up a generator to get some power for the curling iron!
And we are all set…

Lauren was absolutely STUNNING! Her beautiful mermaid dress was designed by Pronovias.

(Can you say…adorable??)
“The cake was made to look like an aspen tree which is significant because we were moving to Colorado where aspen trees are prevalent and it reflects our love of the outdoors. Even the beer selection was significant-one NC beer and one from CO to show were we have been and where we were going.” – Lauren
