Camp New Moon Wedding in Lake Of Bays

Looking for the perfect wedding venue that has a lot of flexibility, comes with all the accommodations right on-site and you can host your family and friends for an entire weekend instead of just a single night? Then a summer camp is the perfect place to host your wedding! Summer camps are truly the perfect wedding venue as they can hold as many guests as you would love to have and they hold a certain sense of nostalgia as many of us attended summer camp growing up. Jackie and Matt chose Camp New Moon in Lake of Bays for their wedding venue and it is easy to see why. With the perfect balance of forested and open area, a large beach front with multiple docks and over 200 acres of hiking trails, rivers and ponds Camp New Moon has everything you could need for a summer camp wedding. Available to rent for weddings from late May to the end of June and then again from late August until early September you have the options for the best times of year to host a Camp New Moon wedding.

Jackie and Matt planned their Camp New Moon wedding weekend perfectly. It was filled with bonfires, activities throughout this Muskoka summer camp, great music and a lot of fun. One of my favourite things about a summer camp wedding is your guests never have to leave the property once they have arrived. This self contained facility has all their cabins available for your guests so once you’ve arrived on Friday night you don’t have to get back in your car until it is time to leave after bunch on Sunday. Having a wedding that is all in one spot is one of the best ways to reduce stress and allow for a more flexible timeline on your wedding day. You are not having to drive between a getting ready location, first look spot, then to your ceremony and finally your reception. At Camp New Moon and all of the other Muskoka summer camps you can walk everywhere within minutes!

Jackie and Matt are both outdoor enthusiasts so it was only fitting to have their wedding at Camp New Moon. This day was very much focused on what they loved most – they brought their campervan, name Turtle, and turned it into a space to leave video messages for them to watch later, they played basketball with their wedding party instead of doing the traditional wedding party photos (which I love and encourage so much!), Matt and his groomsmen entered the ceremony in a war canoe on the lake, they danced in between courses at dinner and ended the night with an incredible firework show.

What I loved most about Jackie and Matt’s Camp New Moon wedding is that they got to do what they love most – be outside on the lake, spending an incredible weekend filled with quality time with their family and friends as they committed themselves to each other on a beautiful dock in Muskoka. Surrounded by that much love and support it made for the perfect weekend at summer camp.
