Are you tired of the same old wedding venues? Looking for something unique and memorable for your special day? Look no further than Virginia’s Prince William Forest! That’s precisely where Elizabethany and Justin decided to tie the knot, renting out the entire campground for a weekend-long park wedding celebration.
But this wasn’t just any ordinary campground wedding – EB and JB went all out to create a one-of-a-kind experience for their guests. And they didn’t have to break the bank to do it. Renting the camp only cost them $1,500, leaving plenty of room in their budget for priorities like catering and professional photography.
Guests at the wedding weekend were given access to the entire campground, including sleeping cabins, a pavilion, a dining hall, and even a craft cabin where the bride got ready. And while the couple did provide some fancier invitations for family members, they kept things casual with a more laid-back invite for friends. They even included a camp map so everyone would know how to find their way around.
Of course, the real magic of this wedding day was in all the unique and personalized touches. From the beer wall to the ring bearers tossing baseballs with the bands inside, every detail was carefully thought out to reflect EB and JB’s personalities. And speaking of characters (not just her close loved ones), Elizabethany has become a wedding planning guru, thanks to her popular TikTok post about the wedding. She even hosts a podcast called “3 Weddings and a Podcast,” where she dishes out advice to other couples embarking on their journey down the aisle.
But back to Prince William Forest – did you know this stunning park has a rich history? Established in 1936 as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, it served as a training site for the Army during World War II. Today, its beautiful 15,000 acres are preserved as a National Park, offering visitors the chance to enjoy hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities just 40 minutes south of Washington, DC.
And suppose you’re considering a wedding in this magical location. In that case, it’s worth noting that a special use permit is required for events like EB and JB’s. But don’t let that deter you – with a bit of planning and creativity, a Prince William Forest Park wedding can be just the unique and unforgettable experience you’ve been dreaming of. And who knows – you just might spark the next viral TikTok sensation! Its a wonderful world out there!
