When Chris & Cyndi first reached out to me about their camp wedding, I was over-the-moon! I hadn't even met them, but their positive energy and excitement about their big day was so contagious, and their beautiful and unique story of how they met and fell in love pulled at my heart strings. Chris & Cyndi first met while they were both counselors at Camp Wawbeek in Wisconsin Dells. It was there that their friendship blossomed into a relationship, and eventually, Chris proposed to Cyndi surrounded by their closest friends. When it came time to start the wedding planning process, it wasn't hard for Chris & Cyndi to decide that Camp Wawbeek would be the perfect choice for their wedding venue, for it had been the setting of their love story for so many years. In addition, they were excited to share the camp experience with their families, as it holds such a special place in their hearts. I had the opportunity to see Camp Wawbeek during their engagement session last winter, and after seeing this place in person, I knew then that their day would be simply magical.
Let me tell you, Chris & Cyndi's day was like no other! It was obvious that they had carefully thought out every single detail to reflect their partnership and love of camp. As Chris's father officiated their outdoor ceremony and Cyndi's father walked her down the aisle, I will never forget the emotion and joy that Chris displayed as he saw his bride for the first time. I can pretty much guarantee that there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd...it truly was an amazing moment! After they exchanged vows, their guests enjoyed lawn games and music while we were off doing pictures around the many beautiful locations at camp. Their casual Mexican-themed dinner buffet, complete with a margarita bar (say what?!?) was held under the big, blue sky as the sun was fading and led into one of best dance parties I have ever seen at a wedding with live music provided by FadeBack. It was the ultimate camp experience, and I know that Chris & Cyndi wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We cannot thank you two enough for including us in your special day!
Meet the new Mr. & Mrs. Hemmer!
