HARDING WATERFRONT ESTATE | Cheryl & Joe ~ A beautiful lakeside wedding

HARDING WATERFRONT ESTATE | Cheryl & Joe ~ A beautiful lakeside wedding


With a backdrop as beautiful as Harding Waterfront Estate,  the amazing team of Shaw Events and  Sue Gallo Designs,  creatively curated a gorgeous lakeside wedding for Cheryl & Joe. Inspiration for their wedding came from the venue itself. A private and secluded estate along the shores of Lake Ontario. The historic mansion with it’s beautiful gardens and understated elegance was the perfect compliment to the relaxed elegant atmosphere that Cheryl & Joe wished to surround themselves with that day.

Romantic garden roses, peony and hydrangea florals in shades and hues of corals, peaches and blush were in abundance and designed to bring a fresh garden inspired atmsophere  to the festivities. With a ceiling of lush smilax vines and delicate fairy lights, the tent was perfectly set with gorgeous Louis chairs from Detailz Chair Couture Event Rentals, table settings by Plate Occasions and custom stationary by Alicia’s Infinity. Danielle of Shaw Events ensured that even the smallest detail was attended to. A stunning cake by Sweet Celebrations was perfectly curated to coordinate with Cheryl and Joe’s love of music.  536 Event Group entertained until the evenings showstopping moment when Cheryl and Joe took to the stage with their band to entertain their family and friends.

I am hopelessly in love with this wedding, this couple and a most perfect day beautifully captured by the incrediable Reid of When He Found Her!
