Congratulations to Deirdre Crampton and Steve Mitchell who were married at Arowhon Pines this past weekend (June 27-28). They, their lovely family and friends took over the whole resort for the weekend.
Deirdre and Steve met when they represented Canada and the UK as part of their respective country’s sailing team at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Guests flew in for the wedding from Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, the USA and the Isle of Wight to attend the festivities. Despite a gloomy weather forecast, the clouds parted for the whole day on Saturday (keeping alive our “outdoor wedding” streak). Guests sailed, swam in the lake, played tennis, feasted on a barbecue lunch and relaxed on the dock. The sit down ceremony was held by the canoes at the lake, followed by a cocktail party on the verandah, dinner and speeches in the dining room, and a party to the wee hours!
We’ve been talking back and forth to Deirdre and Steve for over a year planning their wedding, and we will miss them! We do wish them all the best in their lives together. A big thank you to Mr & Mrs Crampton and Mr & Mrs Mitchell as well.
Deirdre and Steve have put together a fabulous website that documents everything from their engagement onwards - with lots of photos. They gave us permission to pass it along to you: www.gettinghitchedinthewoods.com.
