Toronto wedding photographer, Niv Shimshon, sent us Lara Tobin and Michael Landzberg’s lovely Muskoka wedding…take a look!
Lara and Michael met briefly at a bar several years ago. Fast-forward a year or so, they met again when Lara was dating someone: one of Michael’s friends!
When Michael’s friend ended the relationship with Lara, Michael and Lara continued to grow their solid friendship and ultimately their love. On a surprise trip to Boston – a place of special meaning for the two – with an itinerary full of Lara’s favourite things, Michael proposed to Lara. Saying yes was a no-brainer!
Engaged in March and wanting a summer wedding in Muskoka, Lara and Michael hit the ground running the minute they came back from Boston. With a five-month engagement came help. The group effort combined Lara’s work in PR, wedding planner Mona Ng, resident wedding planner Lara’s mom Victoria, Michael’s strategic approach and Michael’s mom’s energy, and with that they pulled off the wedding of their dreams! A sunny weekend in Muskoka was spent with friends, family, music, love and laughs. On their seating cards they included a quote: ‘Our Intent is all for Your Delight’. This could not have been more true in their planning and goal for their guests.

Toronto wedding photographer, Sarah Sharpe, sent us this lovely wedding that started at the The Walper Hotel and ended, under the warm glow of little lights, at the The Chicopee Tube Park.
From Sarah: Brandon + Amanda are such a sweet couple! I had the privilege of getting to know Amanda through her work as a stationary artist last year, she owns a small local business called Forever Feather Designs.
On the morning of their wedding, black clouds stretched across the sky, and I wondered how my dear couple was feeling as the weather threatened a massive storm. But upon arriving at the gorgeous, downtown Walper Hotel; the Bridal suite was buzzing with laughter & excitement. The smell of hairspray filled the room and beautiful details were strewn across the tables. Amanda was filled with butterflies as she prepared the final touches, before saying “i do” to the man of her dreams.
Umbrellas were up as the couple walked down the isle, surrounded by trees in the woods of The Chicopee Resort. A passionate first kiss, sealed the deal and then the real fun began! A spread of delicious treats greeted the guests, along with an evening of touching speeches and dancing to a fabulous live band! Surrounded by windows, everyone watched as the rain poured down around us, inside the log cabin resort. It was magical. Twinkle lights filled the ceilings and made this cozy room filled with loved ones feel like a night to remember.
