FROM ELYNN: Our wed­ding had a “Ro­mance in the Woods” theme. We took a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from the nat­u­ral green­ery of the Muskoka re­gion. Both my mom and Joe’s mom were in­volved in the plan­ning process—my mom has an in­cred­i­ble eye for de­sign and worked closely with Tanya List and Shealyn An­gus to trans­form the Sher­wood Inn. Joe’s mom or­ga­nized a beau­ti­ful Muskoka-themed re­hearsal lunch dec­o­rated with pho­tos of Joe and I grow­ing up on Lake Joseph—the same lake where we got mar­ried. Most of the guests came to Muskoka on Fri­day morn­ing. We had the whole week­end and were for­tu­itous with the weather. Hav­ing ev­ery­one we love spend the week­end with us was the ab­so­lute best. Fri­day af­ter­noon turned into a big beach party fol­lowed by a bar­be­cue. Luck­ily we had good friends who sent us home at an ap­pro­pri­ate time!

I loved the decor. Tanya’s flow­ers were per­fect. We in­cor­po­rated sub­tle hues of mauve and other nat­u­ral colours to ac­cent the green­ery. “That’s How Strong My Love Is” by Otis Red­ding was our wed­ding song. We both love Otis Red­ding so much we named our dog af­ter him!
