The intimate lake wedding of Kelsey and Gordie in Kenora, Ontario.

Located on a private Island, about 30 minutes from Kenora, Ontario, is the magical place where Kelsey and Gordie decided to tie the knot! All guests needed to arrive via boat (HOW FUN!). The meal was potluck style, and everyone was so excited to be there to celebrate these two.

An Intimate lake wedding is so special, and my heart is in LOVE with Kenora! There is something so cool about a lake wedding. I love the vibe, the sense of adventure, and how serene lake weddings are.

On the morning of the wedding, it rained and rained. The skies cleared just before the ceremony. The Island was showered with sunshine for their intimate elopement style wedding on the dock.

Just as the ceremony finished, the rain started up again for a beautiful (but quick) sun-shower. After it passed, the three of us wandered around the private island, stopping at various places by the lake for portraits of the bride and groom.

The guests returned back to Kenora after dinner and only a few of us were left on the Island. I brought Kelsey and Gordie down to the dock to watch the sunset and to document some intimate moments at sunset on the dock. When the sun set and the starts filled the sky, I thought of a great idea. It was time to play with sparklers on the dock (see the photos at the end!).

I am in love with intimate lake weddings and I am frequently in the Kenora are! Please reach out and let’s start planning your dream day. Lakeside elopements, cabin weddings, playing on the lake… let’s do it!
