Chandler & Jonathan’s Summer Wedding at The Northridge Inn

Our all-time favourite wedding days are ones where we show up as vendors but leave as friends.  And that was definitely the case at Chandler & Jonathan’s wedding.  These two are the type of people who make you feel so loved and seen and valued from the moment you meet them. So it was no surprise to us that their wedding day was full of the same warmth and joy.

Set against the picturesque Northridge Inn, their wedding day unfolded like a fairytale. Or maybe more like a more classy, laid-back version of Dirty Dancing meets Muskoka lakeside. Their families & friends got to enjoy a weekend in nature – a mini destination wedding if you will – and when it came time for the ceremony to begin, they all made their way down to the lake.

Chandler & Jonathan decided not to see each other before their ceremony, so the air was filled with a palpable excitement as everything began.  And based on the happy tears and huge smiles, we think we can confirm (on their behalf) that it was absolutely worth the wait.

Once of our favourite moments of the whole day was directly after the ceremony, as the newlyweds walked back down the aisle towards the shore.  Everyone started to follow, and when Chandler peeked behind her she saw her brother not too far behind, absolutely weeping.  So her & Jonathan paused there for a moment as everyone caught up, and proceeded to start a big chain of tearful group hugs.  We were grinning so big behind our cameras and had a field day capturing all the tearful hugs, high-fives, and laughter.

The rest of the wedding unfolded in the most natural and effortless way. We spent some time capturing photos with their families & wedding party, and then went into documentary mode capturing candids at the cocktail hour & reception.

Another thing we LOVED – the kids!!! Ever since becoming parents ourselves, we just can’t help but love when kiddos are included at weddings. And on this day, it felt like Chandler & Jonathan’s joy was even further magnified by the presence of their nieces and nephews who added an extra dose of cuteness to the festivities. We loved hearing the pitter-patter of little feet and their playful laughter all over The Northridge Inn.

We could (clearlyyyy) go on about these two for a very long time.  But we’ll let you enjoy the photos now.  Cheers to Chandler & Jonathan, to love that shines as brightly as the Muskoka summer sun, and to a lifetime filled with beautiful and playful moments!
