Karli & Kevin’s lakeside wedding was what boho dreams are made of! Karli’s dress was from the boho babes themselves over at Rue de Seine (of course), their palette included every color of the rainbow, their flowers were wild and their decor was an eclectic mix of rugs, vintage lounge pieces, farm tables and bistro lighting.
Karli and Kevin’s day took place in her parent’s backyard, just a few hundred feet from where they met, working as camp counselors at Sambica Summer Camp. It was jam packed with personal details and included a vendor team that was halfway made up of their incredibly talented friends!
The morning started off with a group yoga session (Karli is a fitness coach). The ceremony took place on the end of her parents’ dock, with the wedding party sitting in boats on either side. Karli & Kevin’s Pomeranians served as flower girls and the family lab, Oliver, followed Karli and her dad down the aisle. Their “guest book” was a flower mandala, where each guest made a private wish for Karli and Kevin as they laid their flower down. They had wood fired pizza for dinner and cookies and ice cream for dessert and ate at a “wedding party lounge” instead of a head table. They had a huge dance party and exited by boat as their friends jumped in the lake after them. It was 10,000% them!
Most people think turning a backyard into a wedding venue is the easier option but it’s usually the opposite–There are so many more logistics to consider. This one was definitely a team effort! We loved working with Karli, Kevin and their families! We are so so appreciative of their trust in us and of the team that busted their butts to pull their vision off!!
