Canoe lake wedding as seen on @offbeatbride

A canoe entrance, a dock jump, and a breastfeeding mama round out this fab camp wedding

Gus and Ria were married at Camp Moran State Park on Orcas Island, where they camped and partied hard. Some of our favorite parts include the couple’s son Harlan breastfeeding before the wedding, the canoe entrance to the ceremony, and the joyous dock jump after! They quite literally took the plunge. The reception had dancing, s’mores, and even some skinny-dipping. All is right with this wedding.

Bask in the simplicity of Kerianne & Michael’s lakeside wedding

This couple may have shied away from decorations and traditions, but a little compromise made for a pretty gorgeous but still simple wedding. The bride dealt with a tragic blow just two months before the wedding, so this was a celebration of life and solace. Don’t miss the sweet log details, the bride’s gorgeous flower crown, and the adorable childen’s reading.

Liane & Daniel’s off-the-grid lakeside cabin-in-the-woods wedding

There’s nothing we love more than a tearful groom at the ceremony. And boy does this cutie deliver. Add that to the gorgeous scenery of this island locale, 1001 paper cranes, a signed paddle guest book, an epic dance party, and interactive cardboard sign speeches, and you’ve got a stellar getaway, off-the-grid wedding.

Chris & Jeremy’s lakeside family reunion wedding

If this bride looks a little familiar, it’s because she’s our rad Assistant Editor of Offbeat Bride! Let’s see what this family reunion wedding has in store for us: a beautiful crystalline lakeside venue in Western Nebraska, a chalkboard program and menu, deer just wandering around, and two gorgeous people in lurve. Don’t miss the sure-fire way to beat the pre-ceremony nerves, too!

Natalie & Matthew’s homebrewed kilted lakeside wedding

This pair may have never dreamed of their wedding much before planning it, but it’s certainly become one of our dream weddings. With kilts, an emerald green dress, homebrewed beer, and Celtic wishing stones, it was pretty magical. But just wait until you see whose phone buzzed during the unplugged ceremony and the April Fool’s prank they played on the guests!

Jamielynn & Matthew’s wedding weekend with a trebuchet

Campfires, archery, boating, a ropes course, and a giant creme donut — it’s the wedding of any outdoors-y kid’s dreams. This pair also built an epic “trebouquet” for the bouquet toss! Oh, and just wait until you hear about their funniest moment involving an adorable grandmother ad-lib.
