Planning your ceremony.

You may have a strong religious connection or may have none at all. Perhaps you have been turned off by organized religion and want to focus on love rather than dogma. Perhaps yours is more of a nature-respecting and creation-honouring spirituality that sees truth and wisdom in all traditions of reverence and respect. Perhaps you want to elope and come to our home. Wedding officiant Reverend John Larsen will help you customize your Muskoka wedding ceremony, encompassing both the style and setting of your choice.


Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they longed for:

companionship, intimacy, friendship.

The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into marriage. A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising,

keeping the box full.

As part of the ceremony, the couple has captured their thoughts and feelings leading up to this day in love letters to each other. The couple will place their letters to each other inside the box. These notes will be shared by the couple on their

5th Anniversary.

On that joyous day, they will get to reflect on the events and emotions they shared on their wedding day. A chance to reminisce about all the memories they will have made over the last five years, and dream of all those yet to come.



So much time and preparation goes into making a wedding celebration a special occasion, and yet it seems to pass in the blink of an eye. So too did our time together. I apologize for not spending more time with you—I seemed overwhelmed by emotion and heat. Please know that Paul and I regard our service with great fondness and remain truly grateful for you providing us with a ceremony we will cherish forever.
