Kristin and Alan both spend their summers working for a summer camp for kids and they warned me ahead of time that their camp friends get a little rowdy, like to dance party, and that rubber animal masks often make an appearance. What they did not warn me about: that there would be a ninja turtle at the dance party. Best reception surprise ever!
Their Sugar Bowl wedding featured the highs and lows that you would expect from any ski resort wedding – literally. They were wed on the grass at the base of the resort, sent their friends and family up the lift for cocktail hour at the top of the mountain and then returned to the base for a beautiful dinner and reception on the deck of the lodge.
Because their summer camp roots are so important to them, the reception was camp themed and the centerpieces featured appropriate items like lanterns. Take away gifts were custom ceramic mugs and table assignments were according to cabin names. It was a gorgeous day, an adorably themed DIY wedding and an incredible dance party.
