Claire & Richard’s Arowhon Pines Resort Algonquin Wedding
Last weekend, Claire and Richard gave their friends and loved ones the most beautiful weekend at Arowhon Pines Resort in Algonquin Park. Guests witnessed their sweet wedding ceremony, dined and danced with them until the next day, and, in between all the festivities, spent time with the newlyweds doing what they love most: canoeing, swimming and enjoying the outdoors.
Claire and Richard met in downtown Ottawa on a night out dancing. Or, as his grand-father put it, while Richard was “researching local establishments”. On noticing that Richard was hanging around and clearly interested in Claire, Claire’s friend Allie arranged that the two bumped into each other (read: she pushed Claire into Richard, like a truly great friend would). They started dating soon after and quickly realized they were both more the outdoors type than the “local establishment” type.
It could not have been more fitting that the two were married surrounded by white pines and canoes on a shimmering lake, as their engagement started much in the same way – in a canoe in the middle of the lake. They knew from the start they wanted to be married in Algonquin Park and the peaceful and lovely Arowhon Pines Resort could not have been more perfect of a location.
Claire and Richard, thank you for the honour of being invited to your wedding both as your photographer and guest. I wish you a wonderful start to your life together and many many more canoe trips in your lives!
