Muskoka Bouquet with jewels and pearls

A rainy summer day in Muskoka cannot dampen the spirits of a couple in love.  Amanda and Cam’s wedding clearly proves that point.  They chose the stunning lakefront venue of Touchstone Resort to host their wedding.  And the Boathouse served as a perfect ceremony location.
