Planning Your Algonquin Park Wedding

Algonquin Park Weddings – my absolute favorite!! The landscapes are so unique and beautiful, so it’s no wonder that many people choose to have their weddings and elopements here. I have had the honor of documenting endless weddings in Algonquin Park, and hope to continue to do so for years to come.

How to Plan Your Algonquin Park Wedding

Your Guest Count

Not all locations in Algonquin Park are easily accessible for guests with disabilities, such as hiking a trail. And if you have a large guest count, you will need to consider using one of the beautiful venues the Park offers, versus having your ceremony at a lookout or trail. You do not want to disturb or harm the landscape or hinder the other park guests experience.

Plan logistics and accommodations

When it comes to planning a wedding inside the stunning Algonquin Park, there are a few special considerations you must make. Firstly, the style of wedding you want. This particular wedding I am sharing today is a one-of-a-kind, boho, and totally immersed in nature type of wedding. If hiking to your ceremony location and renting a group campsite isn’t for you – Algonquin Park still has many options for your wedding, which you can view in the lists below.

Algonquin Park does host a few unique wedding venues. These area’s can all host your wedding, provide amazing views and locations for portraits, and even have accommodation options for you and your guests! Some of my favorites include:
Bartlett Lodge
Arowhon Pines
Camp Arowhon
Voyageur Quest
Algonquin Eco-Lodge
Camp Pathfinder

Book your vendors

There are plenty of amazing Muskoka-based vendors that also service Algonquin Park. You will need to watch for travel fee’s for some vendors if they are not close by already. Some vendors you will need include: officiant, photography, videography, florals, hair & makeup artist, and a planner/coordinator. Some vendors you may or may not need include: catering, dress/suit rentals, tent rental, accommodations, etc. Please feel free to reach out for our preferred vendor list.

Pick Your Locations

You have SO many beautiful styles of landscapes throughout Algonquin Park. What type(s) of scenery do you want in your wedding portraits? Do you love the tall pines? Lakes? Or stunning lookouts? All of these are options that are accessible to you. It is my job to help you find the perfect spots! What is important to me is that we follow my Leave No Trace policy when photographing in certain delicate areas while creating magical imagery for you.

The Details

The Ceremony

For this special intimate ceremony, we hiked a short distance down a marked trail to this cute hidden area! Right off the lake, this couple shared beautiful vows and rings. Followed by champagne pops, and a unique place for family portraits.

The Portraits

I was so honored to bring this couples vision to life with my immense knowledge of Algonquin Park! We travelled to three very easy accessible area’s to get a variety of scenes! I would love to hear in the comments which scenes you love the most!

The Reception

Using 100% natural light, we captured some amazing moments at this Algonquin Park Wedding. The reception took place at one of the group campsites where camp games were set up. There was a beer-filled canoe, cornhole, giant Jenga, and a boho dance floor! Picnic tables were set up to create a beautiful place for a catered dinner.
