A Modern White Wedding at a Camp in Washington
The Happy Couple
Brooke and Josh got hitched before 240 guests at Camp Korey, a dairy farm turned camp for kids with serious illnesses. Every detail, including the ceremony flowers and the reception decor, reflected the couple’s white-on-white color scheme and the coolness of the early April day. “I love that time of year,” says Brooke. “It’s all about potential.” Just like their brand-new marriage.l about potential.” Just like their brand-new marriage.
The groom, clad in Lanvin, and the bride, wearing J. Mendel, hold each other close.
The couple’s programs feature blind-hit letterpressing, where imprints are made in the paper but no ink is used.
Both the ceremony and reception took place in one section of Camp Korey’s hippodrome (guests moved into another area set off by canvas curtains while the space was transformed). The huppa, draped in strips of silk dupioni, sequined tulle, cotton, and organdy, was left standing for the party.
Ranunculus and blossoming branches in white ceramic vases lend subtle elegance to every table. Porcelain cherry and dogwood blossoms were attached to the branches, and porcelain magnolia flowers were set at the base of the vessels.
Strips of fancy fabric adorn the huppa, and trompe l’oeil slipcovers transform the venue’s chairs.
The dupioni silk cushion is topped with a silk blossom and gold thread.
