Thank you again for all of your time, patience, attention to detail, and hard work in planning our amazing Migis Lodge wedding!
Ever since we met with you back in September we knew that Migis Lodge would fulfill all that we were looking for in our dream wedding -- a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the water, a summer camp atmosphere but with all the amenities of a 5-star hotel, a place that could house all of our friends and family for the weekend, and a welcoming, friendly, and accommodating staff. Well, boy did you deliver!
All of our expectations for what the "perfect" wedding weekend would be were far surpassed, thanks to you and your colleagues who were willing to bend over backwards to make our wedding a huge success. We cannot thank you enough for ensuring that every detail was taken care of--from the birch arbor and the microphones at the ceremony to the after party at Ledges which was set up beforehand and cleaned up afterwards without us having to worry about it to switching my parents to a "nicer" cottage--you thought of everything.
Also, all of the vendors you recommended -- Marcia with the flowers and Salon 616 for hair/make-up and emilie inc. photography -- were all fabulous to work with and helped to make our wedding so special. I would also recommend adding the Bob Charest Band to your Recommendation List as they were absolutely fantastic! The three most popular questions/comments at our wedding were: 1. Where did you find this place (Migis Lodge)? 2. Where did you find this band? 3. The flowers are gorgeous!
My mother said that arriving to the ceremony by boat was one of the greatest highlights of her life! I also think that it added a "wow" factor to our wedding ceremony that you just can't get anywhere else. All of our guests raved about the food, especially the cocktail hour! The stuffed figs, the lamb chops, and the oyster bar were all big hits and I'm really glad we decided to go with the lamb chops and the oysters in the end -- money well spent -- even though I didn't really get to enjoy the appetizers due to photos. I didn't really take advantage of the bar, either, but I heard that the bartenders were amazing and that they made great cocktails! Thank you for putting out our cake knives, champagne flutes, "guest book", escort cards, menus, and wedding favors. It was such a relief not to have to worry about that!
Lastly, the after party at Ledges on Friday and the Bonfire on Saturday were both highlights of the weekend for Dong and me and two "perks" of a Migis Lodge wedding that you really can't get anywhere else. Many thanks to your colleagues who cleaned up our mess afterwards! I was really embarrassed by how messy things got after the Bonfire but I guess some things that happen at your wedding you really can't control -- like your 30-something friends acting like kindergarteners by throwing marshmallows!
Thank you so much, Robyn! Dong and I hope to come back to the Lodge soon and so many of our friends said they would like to come back as well. Hopefully we will see you soon but in the meantime, enjoy your summer and please thank all your colleagues for us for going above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was the best wedding our friends and family have ever been to (yes, we did get that comment several times!).
Many thanks and best wishes,
Lisa & Dong
