Intimate Cottage Wedding

If you've ever been caught up trying to decide what style of wedding you want and couldn't see many options outside of the proverbial box, let me show you how it can be done. Jill and Rob got married at the cottage. For those who don't know, "the cottage" is a supremely important part of Ontario culture in the summer. The best thing you can have as a kid growing up on the polite streets of Toronto is a waterfront family cottage or even better, a bff with one. If you're fortunate enough to have access to a waterfront property and you happen to be getting married in the middle of July, the obviously logical option is to pile your closest friends and family onto a speedboat and bring them across Georgian Bay to watch you wed on a dock, as a super-chill, barefoot bride living the dream. In other words, cottage weddings are great. The dogs crashed the ceremony, we ate pulled-pork made in a slow-cooker, the bride and groom slept in a wedding tent and we didn't trash the dress but we did utilize it to its full potential by putting it in the lake. For this one I couldn't tell if I was a wedding photographer or just a party-crasher. Enjoy! xo
