If you’re looking for outdoor elegance done right, look no further than this Prince Edward County wedding! Marina and Jhase took full advantage of their waterfront Airbnb venue, Cressy House, setting up the ceremony right on the lake and their reception in a huge tent in the middle of the property. To complement the lush gardens, Floralora Flowers designed tall centerpieces, hanging installations, and bouquets in the prettiest summery colors, all with an air of organic whimsy. We’re absolutely in love with Marina’s two-piece Rime Arodaky ensemble, which featured floral appliques, that was as summer-chic as they come. From first look to first dance, photographer Christine Lim did a marvelous job capturing every moment of this Prince Edward County wedding!

It was really important to us that our wedding reflected the past 8 years of our relationship. We wanted a low key celebration in an idyllic setting by the water, surrounded by our closest friends and family with a great party and top notch food!
Our ceremony was hands down the best part of our day! We wanted our ceremony to match the rest of our day by feeling relaxed, intimate, and personal. We chose to read and write our own vows to each other. Our vows truly reflected our story and our love for one another, which we believed we couldn’t get from reading traditional vows.
Marina also surprised me by having the DJ play one of our favourite songs, fittingly is called “Wedding Song” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while I waited for her to walk down the aisle. I’m usually a pretty stoic person but it definitely gave me the chills and really brought the emotions out.
We hired one of our favourite restauranteurs from Toronto to do the food. He essentially cooked all of it on an open fire, which was amazing. He was able to provide us with some of our favourite cocktails and dishes in a family style type offering.
