We are always excited when we get inquiries from couples who are having a Kenora Lake Wedding! Amy & Bruce are from Texas and were planning to have their wedding at Amy’s Family’s private island in Lake of the Woods. She had grown up coming to the island as a child and couldn’t have picked a more picturesque place to marry the love of her life!
After a few Skype Calls and emails, we planned to meet Amy in Kenora on the day of their wedding for a 45 minute boat ride out to Osborne Island! Our boat driver was amazing, he made sure to point out a few places of interest, as well, he took us around the family island before docking to go get ready for the wedding! The weather was great (although the clouds tried to threaten us all day!), the our of the lakes was amazing, and Amy & Bruce’s family were so warm and welcoming.
After arriving at the island, we got a quick tour and history of the family cottages. We were then left to explore and document it all. Mother Nature truly is incredible – the views and landscape of the island were breathtaking. There was even a little prop plane that they were scheduled to fly home in!
We love when our couples choose to have their weddings in places that have special meaning to them. Their families were all so excited to be there and it really did feel like a home away from home. After a quick lunch, everyone worked together to help set up for the ceremony and the dinner. Can you believe that all of the flowers and the wedding cake were transported by boat? Simply amazing!
The ceremony was held overlooking the sandy island beach, and everyone had an incredible view of the vows. We then got to wander about the island with Amy & Bruce. One of the great things about having your wedding and reception all in one place, especially an island, is that we can relax and take our time exploring all the incredible views.
We’re sad that we only got to spend 1 day with these two, but were so glad that our paths crossed and that we were able to share in their wedding day with their family!
Amy & Bruce we wish you all the best!
