Macy and Geoff’s Big Day, Parry Sound, ON
“Do not approach the bears that might be feeding on the property”. Yes, we knew this wedding will not be a run of the mill one exactly but I could sense Sandra tensing up after she read this little warning casually posted outside the hotel Macy was getting ready at. Speaking of Macy she was terribly late, caught up at her hair salon somewhere in Perry Sound. Gabrielle, the Maid of Honour found herself a little lost in an area where cell coverage is patchy at best. The day was off to a bit of a rocky start. However nothing could possibly ruin the mood of this day so things were smoothly brought back on track and we made it to St. Peter’s Church with minutes (admittedly not that many :-) ) to spare.
To say this wedding had everything would be an understatement. From the lighthearted, emotional ceremony to the swiss watch like organized services on the impeccably groomed parent’s property where the reception was held, no detail seemed too small or deemed unnecessary. This might sound a bit boring and precise but the day was anything but. Very casual attire was encouraged and flipflops were provided along with an extensive collection of baseball caps. Bug spray as well, as we were deep into cottage country after all. And if you believe this was not enough try to think how many weddings you attended had a big bonfire (marshmallows included), an ice cream truck, a poutine truck, pit roasted suckling pig, an open bar where there were no two wine bottles alike and enough cupcakes to keep a small town happy for a couple of days.
Good people, good food and good music. What a lovely day this was.
Here is how it went. Enjoy!
