How to do a Lake Superior Wedding, The Camellia

It's easy to get carried away to exotic destinations when planning your Wedding...sometimes the best destination can be found right here you live. The shores of Lake Superior make a spectacular backdrop for your wedding photos. Often we overlook the beauty of where we live...somewhere else seems more exotic. Then you start pondering the legalities of getting married in a different country...what if you break up, then you will be governed by the laws of the country where you legally got married. This would affect property and assets, and other areas of your life.

Some of your guests may not be able to afford to pay for travel to your Wedding. And after all, what is a Wedding without your family and friends? 


For those of you who don't like heat, Lake Superior is perfect as there is usually a cooling breeze coming off the Lake, even in the middle of Summer. You would like to have beautiful photos, and a red-faced, perspiring person isn't too attractive. Long dresses, suits and jackets can get uncomfortable when it's too hot.  

A great go-to resource is At Lake superior Weddings, our mission is to put you in touch with the best Designers, Wedding venues, photographers, Florists, Officiants, and Wedding favour providers.

Click on the link below, and you will be able to see how this was done, and what we love the most, it takes you through the-step-by-step of figuring out sizes of fabric panels, and how they installed them.
