Vanessa & Jon’s Ganaraska Forest Wedding was perfect and it reflected their laid back personality so well! About 1.5 hour east of Toronto, Ontario, Ganaraska Forest truly offers a picturesque backdrop to any ceremony and I couldn’t have imagined it any better! Everything about this location was magical: with tall magnificent trees, sun ray peeking through, and fog rolling through the river behind the wooden backdrop, what more could you ask for?
Getting to Ganaraska Forest was a bit tricky as my Google Map failed me miserably – we ended up driving on the ATV road, and let me tell you, that was a scary experience. Now I know what an ATV road looks like! Despite a bumpy start, everything about the wedding was perfect! I know I said this few times already, but I’m still not over this wedding, and it’s definitely one of my favourites!
Vanessa & Jon are one of the sweetest couple we have had the privilege to meet. They’re so easy going and can make each other laugh so easily!
– I loved some of the personal details of this wedding. For one, the antler + floral arrange was made by the groom’s brother! How beautiful is it?
– Vanessa sang for Jon (Close to You by Carpenters) in the most beautiful live voice I’ve ever heard at the end of her speech! And let me tell you, this girl can SING! Every single person in the room were either crying or floored! I know I was!
– We tried sparkler exit for the very first time and it was kinda tricky getting everyone to round up and I definitely want to try again!
