When Heidi first reached out to me to inquire about capturing her wedding at Triplebrook Camping Resort, she used three descriptive phrases in particular that I explicitly remember:
“Simple”: They had their ceremony and reception within walking distance of one another.
“Local”: The campground is just over the Warren County border in Northern New Jersey.
and “really laid back”: The bridesmaids wore sundresses and cowboy boots, while the groomsmen were outfitted in flannel and jeans.
These words couldn’t have been more true. Sometimes it can seem like a pipe dream for a bride to be calm and collected on her wedding day, but I think even I ended up being more worried that everything would be perfect!
Heidi was a pleasure to be around that day — As any wedding day would be incomplete without a few snags here and there (Question: how do you keep a cowboy boot attached to a newborn’s foot?), Heidi stayed composed and unfazed throughout the afternoon leading up to their ceremony. (Answer: duct tape!)
When I met up with Tucker, he and his groomsmen we’re entertaining the resort staff with their jokes and antics. Having never met before, I felt immediately welcomed by Tucker’s sense of humor and his multiple offers to have a drink with them.
Their ceremony was held outdoors overlooking the pond at Triplebrook, and their reception was held just up the hill in Triplebrook’s (really pretty neat) open-air pavilion.
Double S Diner catered the event with their famous smoked foods (my mouth is watering as I type this. Seriously!), they had a great variety of tunes for all musical tastes to appreciate, and I only spilled lemonade all over myself once the entire night (Heidi, you’re a saint).
Congratulations, Heidi and Tucker, and thanks for having me!
