Here is a great list of venues in the Blue Mountain – Collingwood to Muskoka areas that we are excited about and you might not have heard of. Some are small & intimate and others can accommodate large weddings, as we know every wedding is different. Most of these venues are summer/fall season from May until October. Some, I am sure would be available for off season elopements and intimate weddings.

Aisling Lake House
Located 10 mins outside of Parry Sound and situated on a hill overlooking a small, private lake the Lake House has a rustic and comfortable feel. Aisling has just the right mix of modern touches to make your wedding day perfect while hosting up to 75 guests. They also have a 1000 square foot deck that’s perfect for your reception all while enjoying the views of the lake. This summer we are excited for the opportunity to photograph there for the first time. Check it out here.

NorthBrook Farm
Located just outside Orillia. Northbrook Farm is a 10 acre property with our century farmhouse set in perennial gardens and surrounded by mature trees. A little bit of a different setting then all the others. This venues reminds me very much of beautiful gardens and buildings in Europe. Reception space is tented with a concrete floor, perfectly paired with wooden table and chairs.
