Kayla and Randy chose the loveliest campground for their wedding, and I’m absolutely in love the with the decor they chose to compliment the setting! How fun are the twine wrapped bottles, baby’s breath and Christmas lights?! And I’m always a fan when a couple includes their pup in their big day… make sure you check out the super cute photos she got with her fur-baby while getting ready! xoxo, Jessica

Umatilla, Florida | Doe Lake Campground
What was your budget?
Our budget was $10,000.
Lawn games: $200
How many guests did you have?
We had 125 guests.
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
My dad and I built and painted our cornhole boards and bags to go with. We also built the unity cross that Randy and I tied together. Instead of a guest book, we had all our guest sign a marquee “M” that we use for décor in the house.
Did you do any DIY projects or create any handmade items for your weddings?
I wrapped baby food jars in a lace ribbon and put candles inside of them, I also wrapped beer bottles in twine and made flower vases out of them, I made tiki lamps out of wine bottles. All of the guest cups I painted a chalkboard strip on so they could write their names. I used small plates of wood cut from my parents tree and painted them with chalkboard paint and then wrote on them for décor.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
We booked our venue at a campground.
What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
If something doesn’t go as planned, your guests aren’t going to know, so don’t stress the small stuff.
What was your biggest splurge?
My dress is what cost the most money.
What was your favorite detail?
The wooden plates I used as décor.
What is the most memorable moment of your day?
My husband and I didn’t want to have a first look but we wanted that special moment together before walking down the isle. So we met at a corner of the building and had a moment together only being able to hold hands.
