Sara + Orion | Camp Wedding

We LOVE this wedding. If we were to bottle up a concoction of the perfect wedding it would be pretty damn close to this one. Childhood camp, barefoot, intimate, adventurous, emotional, meaningful. That's the recipe. Sara + Orion took that and added a whole other element of awesome. 
Meet Sara + Orion, they met in New Zealand while Sara was on a Lord of the Rings expedition (nerd talk for exploring middle earth). These two God-loving humans belong to the same church and were both embarking on ministry journeys. They fell for each other immediately.

Fast forward to this beautiful November day at Stony Glen Camp in Ohio, which is Sara's childhood camp. The groomsmen and the groom get in their traditional Maori floral dress shirts and eucalyptus leis while Sara and her girls don their traditional American wedding attire. Sara, also a seamstress, adorned her dress with the lace sleeves that made it so perfect for her. Their ceremony included a foot washing ceremony and really emotional vows while the reception honored Orion's heritage with a traditional Haka dance. 

The entire day was filled with so many meaningful moments. There were so many emotions pouring from everyone! We were so happy to be there to document it all for them! Orion spent the entire day barefoot and they never let go of each other, that's what it's all about folks!

Here's Sara + Orion's Ohio Camp/Maori Style Wedding! It's an epic wedding mashup!
