Get back to nature with 15 weddings that went camping #Wedding Porn#camping#outdoor February 19 2015 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photo from You wish you were camping out for this Idaho couple's wedding by Dylan and Sara Photography I absolutely heart camping, and winter just makes my craving that much worse. So let's ignore winter together and celebrate how much camping rocks! Specifically at weddings! Today, I'm giving a shout-out to those couples who said, "Screw hotels!" and got their wedding night on in tents. Cozy! Psst: You know this includes our publisher, Ariel, right? And, as luck would have it, a lot of these are also wedding weekends. So if you, like, kinda want to see more, you could check out that tag, too. 1. Bike to your campground/wedding site.
