Haley & Joe were married just across the street from their family cottage. Their wedding was largely outdoors, and they were lucky to have the most beautiful weather all day, with a stunning peaked tent for the evening, and a beautiful indoor clubhouse space to dance the night away.
The wedding party started their day with a swim in the lake to freshen up. The power had gone out the night before, and it seemed to set a perfect tone for the day that everybody got cleaned up in the lake before starting the whole getting ready process. Everybody enjoyed drinks on the dock or patio, before the groom and his men arrived by boat for a sweet first look with all of their loved ones present under the pine trees.
The ceremony was one of my favorite settings of the season, with classic harvest chairs lining the aisle, and no unnecessary ornamentation at the front. A simple setting of the bride and groom standing in the shade cast by two big beautiful trees was all they needed to create the perfect mood for a happy outdoor summer wedding.
Finally, the couple and their planner created a stunning outdoor tented reception on the fairway. Guests enjoyed their dinner at long rustic harvest tables as the sun went down over the green and streamed into the brightly lit tent with high peaked ceilings. Speeches began at dusk as the tent was lit with strings of Edison bulbs, and long lines of candles hidden in the greenery down the length of each table.
