Danielle Hausberg and Josh Bleiweis were summer camp sweethearts. At age 13, Danielle, inspired by her Canadian mom, decided to depart her hometown of Los Angeles and expend her school split in the distant Ontario wilderness at Camp White Pine. Her fellow camper? A floppy-haired, adventurous boy from Toronto named Josh. In excess of swimming, rock climbing, and s’mores, a teen romance blossomed—and lasted significantly outside of their assigned session. The two commenced a lengthy distance, Canadian romantic relationship, “seeing each other perhaps a handful of occasions throughout the year and normally reconnecting at camp,” recalls Danielle. Even as they aged out of Camp White Pine, their marriage did not: Josh flew down to L.A. to be Danielle’s prom day, and Danielle finished up becoming a member of Josh at higher education in Canada.

Josh, who functions in sponsorships for the Los Angeles Sparks, determined to propose to Danielle, now a creative director for Ad100 inside designer Jake Arnold, on their eleven-12 months anniversary in August 2020. Josh ordered takeout from their favorite restaurant, Vito, and crammed their Santa Monica condominium with blooms from the L.A. flower current market. Then began “the shortest and most uncomfortable meal we have at any time had,” Danielle jokes. Despite the fact that she could see the ring box in his pocket, Josh refused to request the query right up until they’d completed their meal. “We sat there pretending to eat for about 20 minutes until eventually he finally proposed,” she recalled. He ultimately did—with a vintage ring sourced by way of The Row’s observed jewelry selection.

Practically two several years later, on the weekend of May perhaps 14, 2022, the two wed at Alisal Ranch, a luxurious 10,500-acre dude ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley. It reminded them of in which they fell in appreciate: “We selected the venue since it reminded us of camp. We needed to create a identical camp-like expertise for our friends wherever absolutely everyone could continue to be on the residence and invest the weekend receiving to know each individual other,” claims Danielle.

The pair worked with Chabeli Sanchez of PS Programs to organize the marriage weekend, which began with a pool bash and rodeo on Friday night. On Saturday, they married below a canopy of California Sycamore trees as their family members and pals looked on all through a ceremony in the spherical. Although the bride had initially planned to use a 1960s beaded gown, she switched at the very last moment to a silk jacquard gown by The Row that she’d found hanging on display at Neiman Marcus a several months earlier. “It felt traditional but however modern-day and manner forward,” suggests Danielle. She paired it with her late grandma’s turquoise cocktail ring, a twisted gold and diamond bracelet specified to her by her late aunt, and borrowed earrings from her mom. Josh wore a personalized white meal jacket from Carroll Tailor made in Beverly Hills adorned with two unique cufflinks from every single set of his grandparents, who could not make the vacation from Toronto. He also wore a gold look at that Danielle’s father wore to his wedding with Danielle’s mom. “Jewelry was a unique moment for each Josh and I to include loved ones treasures and rejoice the men and women that could not be with us that working day,” suggests Danielle.
