One day this past June there was a perfect Saturday for a wedding. This was a nice change from the very wet spring we had. Sam and Stijn couldn’t have picked a better day to have their wedding. The sky was clear, the ground was dry and the bugs were minimal.
Both Sam and Stijn prepared for the day in different units hosted at Beachwood Resort. This allowed me to quickly walk back and forth between rooms to capture the time both were getting ready; a definite perk to having a wedding at one of the most family friendly resorts in the Kawarthas.
As you can see from the images below, they had a beautiful lakeside wedding ceremony followed by lawn games for the guests during the cocktail hour time. While their guests enjoyed social time and lawn games during the cocktail hour the three of us had a great time walking around the resort and getting some excellent images. With having their dinner onsite at Beachwood’s Fredrick’s restaurant, it was easy for us to slip out after dinner for a few sunset images on the dock. I have found over the years the best lakeside images come from spending a bit of time with my bride and groom in that last hour of light.
With a unique first dance that took place outside under the trees, very fun guests, beautiful scenery, the inclusion of loved pets, impressive homemade center pieces, perfect weather and a well executed sparkler party, this was a fantastic Kawartha lakeside wedding!
