Would you get married at a Summer camp? When Siahra and Jorden told me that this was their idea a smile came across my face; the inner kid in me realized I was going to spend a weekend at camp. It would be my first time at one in my life. Sure, I’m not a kid anymore, and we’re all adults now… but the only thing better than being a kid at summer camp IS being an adult at a summer camp. No curfew. No quiet hour. Unlimited coffee. Welcome to Camp Jubilee.
Where we are going, we don’t need roads. On Friday I got picked up at Vancouver’s Waterfront Station by a yellow school bus and taken to Deep Cove to charter the camp’s boat with all the wedding guests. There isn’t road access, . This very well might be the most remote feeling location I’ve photographed a wedding at while still being just an hour from downtown Vancouver.
After getting to know Siahra and Jorden over the year – I couldn’t imagine a better setting for them to get married at. They are totally in touch with their inner kid – and a summer camp wedding is a perfect reflection of that desire to stay young at heart and have fun, always. There was everything from a surprise parade to baby geese, late night camp fires and s’mores, to archery and kayaking. Siahra even got to release a trapped and confused hummingbird into the wild while on her wedding day. Dreams DO come true.
