The father's speech is often the most moving at the wedding. In this case, the father of the bride described his relationship with her and the maid-of-honour, apologizing for not having been more involved in their lives than he was. It as quite impactful, and certainly moments like these are the reason I am an Orillia wedding photographer.
The banquet hall at Hawkstone Golf Club was very modern. I loved the crown moulding and coffered details on the ceiling, and well as the grand archways. It was large enough to accommodate two weddings on the same day, however this couple rented the entire space, giving them a great area for cocktail hour and a huge dance floor. If you have never been to this Simcoe County Golf Course wedding venue, it is located closely to Orillia Square Mall, at the end of a residential subdivision. It is easily accessible off Highway 11, or coming form downtown on Coldwater Road.
