2018 most best Wedding photographs - The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

You're getting married and of course, you want to have the best backgrounds for your Wedding photographs. And maybe you are one of those lucky people that look gorgeous in photographs, but maybe you are like the rest of us, you think you rarely look good in photos, and you invoke the photoshop gods to make your photos look fabulous.

We all dream of exotic locations and sometimes ignore the beauty of the very place we live in. Here in Thunder Bay we have the beauty of Lake Superior, along with many inland lakes. We also have the backdrop of the Nor'Wester Mountains, and the rolling hills of Slate River Valley. Nature makes the best backdrop!

Getting married in the Winter in a Tropical setting in Thunder Bay, Ontario

Conservatory in Winter

Northern Ontario in the winter can be very cold....if you are getting married, you may be thinking about a destination wedding in the Caribbean. There is an alternative which doesn't involve getting on a plane. The Botanical conservatory in Thunder Bay. When I first moved here from the warm Caribbean, The Conservatory was one of the places I frequented, inhaling that tropical air reminded me of Home.

There is an abundance of tropical leafy plants, bamboo, fruit trees, hibiscus, camellia bushes, and more. There are pathways to stroll, benches to sit on, and it's a real pleasure on a cold Winter's day to 
visit The Conservatory in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

There are seasonal displays for the Holidays, and while we do have Pointsettias in the Caribbean, they are more of a larger bush planted in the ground with smaller blooms.

Seeing greenery and lush Tropical foilage in the winter is a real treat, and hats off to all of those who fought to keep the Conservatory in Thunder Bay, and raise funds and volunteer at events.  Here is the link to the Friends of the Conservatory Facebook page:  .
