What to Wear to A Wedding at a Camp – Camp Dark Waters – Medford, NJ

This weekend Charles and I enjoyed 24 hours without the kiddos while we enjoyed a family wedding in New Jersey. This wasn’t just any wedding – it was a wedding at a Camp!

Camp Dark Waters to be exact!

I had never been to a wedding at a camp before, so this was uncharted territory for me! This is a legit summer camp for kids that is fully functioning and looked like it was super fun! I went to a few different overnight camps when I was a kid and had the absolute BEST few weeks of summer each year! I feel like I don’t hear of as many kids going to camp these days, but maybe its just because my kids aren’t that age yet!

I had serious memories of waking up to cool, crisp air from sleeping in a camp bunk – such a throwback!

When we found out the wedding was going to be at a campsite, my first thought was – “Well that’s different!” and my immediate second thought was, “What do I wear to THAT?”

Luckily I had all summer to figure that out, so when I randomly came across this crop top + high waisted pant set, I immediately fell in love and knew it was the perfect thing to wear! It comes in a few other colors + prints but I am in LOVE with this black + floral print. It’s neutral, but interesting and it was so much fun to wear to the wedding.

Not to mention that it was the perfect temperature – 70* – with some rain here and there, but it was still delightful. I brought a rose colored cozy sweater for the evening as it cooled down a bit and it was perfect.

While I would have LOVED to wear heels with this outfit, I found out ahead of time that the wedding and reception were going to be on grass, and there was LOTS of rain in the forecast, so I wore an old pair of gladiator sandals {similar – on sale!} that I didn’t care if they got ruined and they worked out great. Plus even though at the end of the night they were sandy and wet, the next day they were still perfect! Win!

I also wore these turquoise drop earrings for a little color pop and they were a great little touch of green, which I loved.

Speaking of green, this was SUCH a beautiful spot to get married. Again, at first I was skeptical, but the day ended up being so beautiful with perfect weather and the backdrop for every one of the bride + grooms wedding photos are going to be so lush and amazing.

See what I mean?

Congrats to the newlyweds on a perfect wedding day and a fantastic wedding location!

I’d love to know if you’ve ever been to a wedding on a campsite? If not, what’s the coolest spot you’ve ever been to a wedding at?! Please share!

And for a little fun, here are a few more snaps of the camp grounds:
