Maybe you’ve heard? If you’re a Canadian Bride or on my Facebook page you may have recently seen that Muskoka has been voted among the TOP 10 Wedding Destinations in the world by bride.com. The WORLD! If you’ve been to Muskoka, have a cottage, know someone who has cottage, visited the area, just driven through – you know why it’s been voted the best! Water, sunshine, sailboats, sandy beaches, holiday resorts…you won’t find this unique brand of dedication to the ‘summer holiday’ anywhere else in the world. So I’d like to welcome you to the heart of Muskoka. Taboo Resort – Golf Course and Spa represents what it is to be ‘in Muskoka’. The combination of modern luxury and natural living, is it!
Melissa, who is originally from this part of Ontario couldn’t really imagine being married anywhere else. Her and Reggie created a pretty spectacular Destination Wedding weekend for their families. From all of Melissa’s Etsy.com and handmade details, to a live Intervention – hosted by the groomsmen, to their actor, model, comedian MC – who played the crowd like I’ve never seen, and most importantly their friends/club DJ’s who also played the crowd as I’d never seen. I always shoot from the middle of the dance floor..dancing and shooting. not this time. I couldn’t get in on any of it. This was the most crowded dance floor I’ve ever seen. And the music? Well let’s just say I felt right at home in their wild combination of remixed Top 40 and grade-8-public-school dance anthems. LOVED!
