Laura and Kevin’s elegant Muskoka wedding was one for the books! This entire weekend was carefully crafted by these two to make sure that their guests had an awesome weekend in cottage country, while keeping all the festivities very intimate and representative of Laura and Kevin’s love story. Their hearts belong in Muskoka- they spend so much time there, and they got engaged there, so it only made sense for them to exchange their vows lakeside, among the picturesque pines. While Laura and her bridesmaids sat and got their hair and makeup done, guests were paddling around the resort in canoes, playing lawn games (handmade by our bride and groom and their families!) and went golfing nearby. We had a jam packed wedding day but with such careful planning, everything went off without a hitch! During their planning process, Laura and Kevin started making fun dates and day trips out of their wedding errands, and one day they stumbled across a bakery in Gravenhurst that has been run by the same family for 3 generations. Kevin’s siblings picked up boxes and boxes of treats from the bakery for the late night station, and they all helped to set up the most epic donut table I’ve ever laid eyes on! So much thought went into every little detail and the end result was incredible. And so, with that, welcome to the largest blog post in history.

See below post for the incredible team of vendors who helped Laura and Kevin’s vision become a reality! A huge shoutout to Christina at Sherwood Inn who was absolutely a treasure to work with, and also to the DJ (from Muskoka Touring Company) who shocked and surprised everybody by singing live and putting on a stellar performance of Shout! And as always- to Deanne for being such a dang good wedding day side kick.

Eddy K, Laura’s gown designer, has featured us on their blog!

Enjoy!

Laura carried her grandmother’s brooch in her arms all day long. The perfect mix of glam, antique and something meaningful to add to her bouquet!

Sneaking in a few moments away from the party is one of my favourite things for newly married husband and wife. It’s a very busy day, so taking a few moments like this is so special.
