Christine and Joe’s lakefront wedding in Oakville is such a sight for sore eyes in the middle of this long winter. Bright, sunny and full of joy- it truly was a highlight of my 2018 wedding season! They made sure to surround themselves with the best wedding party possible- full of friends, siblings and cousins who were so excited to be celebrating alongside them. There were some very important loved ones who were not physically present, but Christine and Joe found several touching and thoughtful ways to make sure that they were honoured and included.
Harbour Banquet Centre is a beautiful venue on the shores of Lake Ontario in Oakville, but it is currently under construction, and I’m actually not sure what the plan for it is! The harbour was the perfect backdrop for the day, especially since Christine and Joe got engaged while on a sailing trip in the BVI! Another fun part of the day included Joe secretly setting up a large scale ‘icing’ a huge group of guests. Their friend group has kept this tradition going strong, and it made for some hilarious reaction photos!
