It’s not everyday an inquiry for a dream wedding venue like the Drake Devonshire lands in your inbox. Prince Edward County has some incredible new wedding and event spaces popping up (100 Acre Wood, The Camp at Waupoos Island, Compass Rose Suites to name just a few), and more couples are getting creative when it comes to choosing unique places to celebrate their marriage. On the shores of Lake Ontario in Wellington, the Drake Devonshire has been on my photography bucket list for a little while now, and I was so excited when Ashley and Mike described their plans for an intimate winter wedding there. The space is beautifully designed with so much window light – a photographer’s dream. It was also a treat to work alongside a talented friend, Kristina of Minim Designs! We crossed our fingers and toes for a snowy white day, and Mother Nature pulled through – it dumped snow.
It’s hard to describe these two without sounding like a complete cheeseball, but they are in fact two of the most kind, passionate and thoughtful human beings I have met in a long time. Their connection to each other and their loved ones is so genuine. I couldn’t be happier to witness the two of them tie the knot. Congrats Mike & Ashley! Mazel Tov!
