CEREMONY ON THE LAWN
Most brides like to get dressed and hair and make-up done in North Lodge which is a large cabin that can accommodate all of your bridesmaids. It is also a great venue for photographing the bridal party. From the door of North Lodge it’s a short walk to the lawn where your guests will gather for the ceremony over-looking the lake. You will need to rent the chairs for the wedding ceremony on the lawn and decorate as you like. ( Muskoka Party Rentals) These chairs can then be used for the dance downstairs.
