Laurie & Steven Muskoka wedding

July 1st , 2017 ; canada day.

AT 11:30 am , my second photographer arrived at my house . we packed all of our stuff and we reviewed the itinerary of the day and we made our way north for a 2 hour and a half journey . half an hour into the drive , i realized i didnt bring my keys ; for my car , you need to press A BUTTON for it to start but you need the keys or else the car will completely turn off . my ASSISTANT , MIKAeLA AND I FRANTICALLY DROVE ALL THE WAY BACK TO MY HOUSE TO PICK THE KEYS up . DURING OUR DRIVE BACK , WE WERE LAUGHING ABOUT OUR LITTLE DETOUR . WE ARRIVED ON TIME DESPITE THE FEW OBSTACLES WE HAD TO FACE . WHEN WE FIRST ARRIVED , IT WAS POURING RAIN . WE WAITED IN THE CAR FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES AND THE RAIN FINALLY CLEARED . WE WERE IN COMPLETE AWE WITH THE PLACE , THE VENUE , THE TENT THE WEDDING TOOK PLACE IN , AND THE PORTAGE INN .

STEVEN AND HIS FAMILY MADE THE BEAUTIFUL ALTER that was used AND THE UNIQUE BENCHES AROUND THE AREA . EVERYTHING WAS ORGANIC AND NATURE ORIENTED . THE SCENERY WAS INCREDIBLE . FROM THE FRONT OF THE TENT , YOU COULD SEE THE LAKE . MY FAVOURITE PART OF THE WEDDING WAS THE SPEECHES . THEY WERE VERY DEEP AND YOU COULD NOTICE THAT EVERYONE WAS VERY HAPPY FOR THE COUPLE . 

I'D LIKE TO THANK STEVEN AND LAURIE FOR LETTING ME DOCUMENT YOUR STORY , THE VENUE ( PORTAGE INN ).
