Kelsey and Josh’s Pavilion on Crystal Lake fall wedding was so lovely. Even in November, this outdoor venue still had so much color! These two met while they were both working as camp counselors and clearly share a love of the outdoors. When they saw the woodsy wedding ceremony location at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake, they were smitten. Even with the crisp fall weather, Kelsey said having their ceremony under a canopy of pine trees was totally worth it. :)

More about this Pavilion on Crystal Lake Fall Wedding:
Kelsey and Josh prepared for their wedding day at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake. Being able to get ready for the day at the venue is always such a stress-reliever! These two had their first look in a forest of swirling yellow leaves above the Pavilion. One of my favorite photos from their first look was actually of the bridesmaids and family watching Kelsey and Josh with tears in their eyes! Wedding party pictures followed, and we were able to get some very cool photos with the wedding party surrounded by fall foliage!
After portraits, guests began arriving for the outdoor ceremony. We love everything about the outdoor ceremony spot at this venue. From the rustic gazebo to the lakeside view, guests are always oohing and ahhing at the scenery when they arrive! Kelsey and Josh ended the ceremony with a kiss, and were surrounded by swirling flower petals that guests tossed! The joy on Kelsey and Josh’s faces as they exit the ceremony is one of my favorite documentary photos of the day!
After the ceremony, guests were invited into the pavilion for dinner and dancing. This rustic reception space was filled with warm and cozy twinkle lights everywhere! It’s So Ranunculus always does incredible work, but we loved all of their rustic designs for the flower centerpieces! Huge thanks to Allie with the Pavilion on Crystal Lake who helped coordinate the day!
Congratulations to this happy couple. We had such a wonderful time spending the day with you both!
