We kicked off Wedding Season on June 11th, with Meli and Chelsea traveling to Camp Waziyatah to celebrate the marriage of Ana and Josh. While the weather wasn’t perfect, Ana and Josh didn’t let that damper their big day. The girls and guys got ready in their respective bunk houses before the bride and groom shared their first look. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner from food trucks, CN Shawarma and Mutha Trucka before being led to the rec hall for a night of dancing. You could just feel the love between these two, congrats Ana and Josh!
