Golfing 7:30 AM

Deerhurst resort

1235 Deerhurst Drive, Huntsville Ontario

Looking for something to do the morning of the wedding, we have reserved 3 tee times for the Lakeside Course at Deerhurst.  With sweeping views of the lake, a challenging layout, and meticulous grooming from tee to green this will be a great way to spend the morning.  The cost for a round of 18 with cart is $55.

Women's Yoga & Blessing

1049 Wonderview Trail, Huntsville ONTario

Woman's Yoga 8 AM

I couldn't think of a better way to start out the morning of my wedding then a gentle & centering yoga class taught by my good friend Sarah, a yoga master.   The yoga class will be held on the patio looking out at the lake, weather permitting. If you have a yoga mat please bring it along, if not we will be providing a yoga mat options. 

Woman's Blessing 9 AM

One of the most meaningful times at my sister's wedding was the Woman's Blessing.   When we started planning I knew I had to include this experience in my day as well.  With the help of my Aunt Fran, Lynn and my Aunt Julie it will be a wonderful grounding for the day and our marriage. I hope all the ladies can join me.
