Elegant Lakeside Summer Camp Wedding at Rockywold Deephaven Camp
Sid & Devon grew up vacationing at Rockywold Deephaven Camp every summer, but it wasn’t until 9 years ago that they finally crossed paths. RDC has such a special place in their hearts that they decided to host their wedding there – and truly, what’s better than all of your friends and family hanging out at camp with you for a weekend? I first got to explore RDC last summer when we photographed their engagement session there and as soon as I pulled in, I totally understood the lure of the place. It’s set on Squam Lake and it’s absolutely beautiful from every angle.
Each piece of their wedding was so personalized, from the invitations that were hand painted by Devon’s sister (they literally blew my mind!) to the custom drink that honored their sweet fur baby, Loon – to the veil that Devon wore that her grandmother made. Their ceremony took place on Church Island, which meant a boat ride on the most beautifully quintissential New England summer day (hi, please twist my arm). While everyone else rode over on pontoon boats, Devon, her dad, and later Sid were taken via vintage Chris Craft motorboat. It was something I’ve always wanted to do and was thrilled to photograph Devon & Sid’s post ceremony portraits on it (and Sid was thrilled to be able to drive it past cocktail hour 😂). Two musicians accompanied all the guests down to the reception in an impromptu second line parade – and from there, the party continued!! It was truly the most magical day & I’m so honored that they chose me to capture it!! Sid & Devon are two of the most genuine people whom I have met, and their families were so sweet. Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of documenting your day, and CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so excited for you two!!!
