Simple Outdoor Wedding Ideas

Our next wedding was shared with us by Carden’s Photography. The day looked so fun and unique that we had to share this unique twist on a wedding.

Set at Cook Forest State Park in Pennsylvania, the day began with a canoe ride, followed by some diy pb and jelly sanwiches and fresh fruit.

The dinner reception was located right next to the ceremony site in the park!  It was decorated 100% diy.  For wedding favors the guest received apples and flower seed packets. The flowers in the mason jars were picked at the park and arranged that day. Every guest had a role in helping prepare for the wedding. Flowers were handmade on site, as well all the decor and most of the food.
