Stephanie and Aaron's wedding had a summer-camp theme, since Aaron had gone to Camp Mather while he was growing up. And every summer, the couple's extended family spends an entire week in a rustic cabin, where they tie-dye, practice archery, ride horses, and swim in Birch Lake. With camping so near and dear to their hearts, they decided to have their ceremony alongside the lake and went for a "Camp Mackler" theme.

At the Evergreen Lodge, the bride and groom had a nature-filled wedding, campfire and tall trees included. With a little bit of lace and tulle, it became a fun, glamorous party where both families could relive their summer-camp days.
