Serenity Cottage Owen Sound Destination Wedding – Part I

It was impossible to narrow this Serenity Cottage destination wedding down to one simple blog post, so I’m splitting into two parts. There’s just too many fun memories to share from Jen & Trevor’s day! I have traveled to Serenity Cottage for weddings every year for the last 4 years, but this year was truly unique because Georgian Bay was covered in fog for the big day. Most couples might be bummed about the foggy skies, but we were all obsessed with the ambiance it created and the photos turned out amazing. No harsh light = no squinting!

Before we get to the photos, let’s start with the first half of their story:

Tell Us How You Met

“We will cut it short, sweet and very unsappy. Trevor was receiving cancer treatment at the hospital I work at, we bumped into each other a year later. The rest is history. “

Do You Have Any Tips / Advice for Newly Engaged Couples Who Want to Plan a Small Wedding?

“Make lists, lists and more lists…. There is a certain satisfaction of crossing things off a list and feeling accomplished. Hire people that you trust, we found that by hiring the  experienced vendors that we did, we were able to have full confidence in that the job would be done seamless, and that alone made us feel less stressed. Lastly, have the wedding that you as a couple envisioned and not what you think other people would want. There will be a lot of people who share their opinions and judgments. It is okay to break traditions to make the day your own. ”

Part two of this Serenity Cottage wedding will share their favourite moments of the day and how they chose their photographer. In the meantime, here’s some moments to help inspire your own day.
