Whimsical and lighthearted are always the words that come to mind when thinking about summer camp, and this wedding editorial from the lens of L.A. Birdie Photography captured all of those feel-good emotions that camp brings minus the pesky bugs. Mobtown Florals dressed up every ideal spot of the venue with heaps of colorful flowers and detail, all very reminiscent of a fun camp summer. One thing we are so in love with is the addition of those grown-up and delish cocktails and to our delight, the recipes for them are below — you definitely won’t see those at camp!

From the photographer, L.A. Birdie PhotographyFrom the floral chandelier dripping with colors to the sweeping movement of the Sarah Seven gown from Lovely Bride, this shoot inspires fun as well as glamour. Camp Puh’tok, a camp and venue near Baltimore, Maryland, was the perfect sunny backdrop for this late summer inspiration. The months of July and August can be a hot time for weddings in the Mid-Atlantic area, but not if your venue has lots of shady trees and a pool in the sunshine!

The women at Mobtown Florals did an incredible job combining years of their curated tablescape pieces with fresh, colorful flowers, arranged in an organic and cheerful style. Along with a stunning sweetheart picnic table, they designed several inspirational tables for guests to enjoy at a summer camp wedding. That included a hot chocolate bar and s’mores bar whimsical woods table with some of the couple’s favorite pieces from their travels and adventures together, and a cake table complete with flowers galore.

Perez at Ratio Craft and Beverage created not one, but two custom cocktails for this midsummer celebration – the Airstream Driver and the Wanderlust Punch! (Recipes listed below.) They’re sure to set a fun, festive tone for brides’ summer camp weddings. When the day of the shoot arrived, everything just fell into place. The inspiration was flowing and the artists were on point. The team for this shoot was equally talented and upbeat. I had a backyard wedding myself and love how features like this add to the casual but pretty side of wedding inspiration!
