A Beautiful Muskoka Wedding At Sherwood Inn

Drew and Nicole wanted an elegantly casual Muskoka wedding. Drew Doughty plays NHL hockey for the L.A Kings, but their Canadian roots led them to host their special day in Canada’s Muskoka region at the Sherwood Inn. We had the most fabulous time designing their pretty wedding with the amazing Toronto wedding planner Ashley Pigott. Nicole is a notable fashion photographer and her creative eye was an asset in every creative meeting. The design for the decor and flowers reflected Nicoles’ down-to-earth relaxed and friendly personality.  Soft and pretty but approachable was the goal! Not pretentious or overdone, this Muskoka wedding was the essence of rustic elegance.  Our creative team designed a stunning overgrown of sorts, floral canopy for the ceremony that fit right into the Muskoka canvas. Guests would gather later under a tent for dinner and dancing.

Muskoka Tent Magnolia Wedding The Rustic Meets The Refined

It was all about rustic elegance and pretty magnolias for Lisa and Chris’s beautiful Muskoka tent wedding.  The couple chose the family cottage to host friends and family to an intimate and beautiful tented wedding. We worked closely with the couple to design the wedding of their dreams. The ceremony took place on top of the stately boathouse which over looked the beautiful Muskoka lake in Huntsville, Ontario. The decor was elegant but not stuffy. Lisa and Chris wanted guests to feel at home. We designed a beautiful magnolia and branch canopy feature that was suspended over the dance floor. The mix of branches and florals Guests dined at gallery tables which were detailed with alternating rows of centrepieces. Tall modern gold stands with candles lined the tables along with low rows of pink and cream flowers. After the reception, guests would enjoy a fabulous desert station in the boat house.  Our modern gold square chandeliers added soft lighting and a modern touch.  This beautiful Muskoka Tent Wedding created beautiful memories for Lisa and Chris and we are so thankful to have participated!  Special thanks to Cravings Fine foods for working so closely with us on this assignment as well as Jennifer Van Son Photography for sharing these beautiful images with us!

Incredible Muskoka Wedding Lake Joseph

Jason and Ilana wanted to embrace the natural beauty surrounding the family cottage on Lake Joseph in Muskoka for their special day while allowing the guests to be a part of something special, something magical, something nobody would forget.  We were over the top excited to start the creative process for this beautiful tent wedding and came up with a colourful display of loveliness everywhere the eye could see.  The stunning and romantic floral chuppah was carefully created to look like four trees were interconnecting at the top. Loaded with flowers and foliage, this jaw dropping feature was the start of something incredible. Wanting it to be a surprise, beautiful Ilana, refused to peek into the tent in the weeks leading up to the wedding but teared up when she saw what we created in the massive reception area. We designed the wedding tent with three different tiered levels for visual interest and included gallery and round tables. Two larger then life trees were created to bring the outside in. Rustic but chic decor elements included a mix of rectangular and beaded wooden chandeliers. The beautiful collections of colourful flowers added a cheerfulness and beauty to the tent. No detail was over looked with this wedding and recently feature in Wedluxe magazine, we are excited to share it with you! Every flawless image by our friends at 5ive15ifteen Photography. An amazing support team of vendors, including wedding planner Laura, from Laura and Co. Events made the magical day happen with ease!
