California Campground Wedding

silver wedding dress ideas


The wedding of Karen and Vaughn reminds me so much of why I love talking about and highlighting weddings every day on Once Wed. From their handmade invitation to their wedding weekend camping with family and friends, every detail was a true reflection and celebration of Karen and Vaughn’s new life together…

We got married at a campground in between Ventura and Ojai, three days of celebrating love, and put the wedding together with the help of family and friends. All the decoration and details, from the food to music, was the outcome of everyone bringing their help and creativity to make it happen. We had people bring truckloads of hay stacks, firewood, and pumpkins. Aunts arranged flowers and brought homemade desserts. Friends made appetizers and homemade cocktails. ¬†They even helped us clean up…

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
