Show Me Your Mumu bohemian lakeside wedding: Cammy and Nick
We could probably all use a little more color this month, huh? Luckily we finally got our hands on Cammy of Show Me Your Mumu’s wedding photos by Our Labor of Love. You may remember when we shared her colorful bridal shower + bachelorette party in Colombia. She even took us along on her wedding dress shopping adventures. So after all those events, we couldn’t wait to take a peek at the big day. Safe to say Cammy + Nick’s wedding at her family lake house lived up to the hype!
The day before the wedding they soaked up the sun with a lakeside bash, and the day after the wedding they had an authentic crawfish boil. Fun!
For the color palette, Cammy wanted everything to either be super bright or super white—nothing in between!
Bridesmaids wore Dune chiffon dresses designed just for the wedding. They’re now available as part of the Mumu bridesmaid collection.
Cammy says, Growing up, I spent my summers at our family lake house barefoot, wild, and insanely happy. It only made sense to get married there barefoot, wild, and insanely happy. The first time I brought Nick there, he fell in love with the magic and peacefulness of the lake house, too. It is definitely our happy place!
Mandy Cathey Weddings & Events whipped up a wildflower-inspired bridal bouquet complete with coral charm peonies, brilliant star spray roses, pale blue delphinium, lavender sweet peas, yellow craspedia, gypsy dianthus, white Veronica, Juliet garden roses, Queen Anne’s lace, and chamomile daisies accented with greenery.
On the dress… I collaborated with Watters designer, Xay Vongphachanh, to create my dream wedding crop/skirt combo. Their Priya skirt was the first thing I tried on and I never wanted to take it off! We created a simple crop top to offset the princess vibes of the skirt and create what we like to call the Cajun Princess look. We placed one-of-a-kind silk flowers trailing down the back of the skirt, moving, pinning, and finding the perfect placement for each up until the moment I walked barefoot down the aisle. Secret tip: Watters is set to release a floral adorned skirt designed after Cammy’s custom Priya skirt for Fall 2018
Cammy walked down the aisle to their talented friend Sody’s rendition of the Ingrid Michaelson version of Can’t Help Falling in Love with You (played on Cammy’s mom’s childhood piano!) and Nick’s best man Joe King performed an original song for their first dance. They also surprised guests with a performance from the talented Jenna Ushkowitz, who sang Katy Perry’s Firework to kickoff the evening’s fireworks show.
It is impossible to pick only one moment from a weekend full of so many incredible memories, but there was a point in the night where we snuck off and sat on rocking chairs, looked out at the lake, and just took a moment to take it all in together! As the reception was raging on in the background, we were laughing, we were crying, we were just sitting in silence… All of it! It was a really special moment and something we will both remember forever.

All the best to Cammy + Nick!
