Muskoka Treehouse Elopement

June 22, 2022

When I first came across the Muskoka Treehouse, I knew I had to capture an elopement there. I’ve also been feeling a pull towards teaching other photographers so I decided to host my very first retreat at the treehouse.

This day couldn’t have gone any better. We had a super talented makeup artist arrive on site in the morning. Makeup by Mcleod did an amazing job and our model was so pleased with her hair and makeup for the shoot. Definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a MUA in the area!

A.M.D. Special Events was involved as a planner/ styling and she brought so much to the table. From organizing charcuterie boards (and styling it – thank god cause that’s not one of my talents lol), arranging a spot on the dock to style her sweetheart table and making sure everything was going smoothly throughout the day. I don’t know what I would have done that day without her!!

Muskoka Flowers was an absolute life saver. I started planning this retreat a little bit last minute in the middle of October and many florists were already booked. If you don’t know already, September/ October are one of the busiest months because so many people want to get married in fall. I sent her over a few ideas of what I was thinking but gave her complete creative control over everything. She completely blew us away with her installation at the Muskoka Treehouse. Even after having to come up with something new last minute because of the flower shortages at the time.

There are so many people to thank for making this Muskoka Treehouse retreat go the way it did – I couldn’t have done it without them.

If you’re looking for a stunning place to elope in Muskoka at anytime of the year… Yes, even winter is gorgeous here… Then I highly recommend checking out the Muskoka Treehouse. And don’t forget to message me to capture it for you!!
