Lindsay & Cameron at Lake Pend O’reille in Murphy Bay

From Lindsay:

I am still getting chocked up just thinking about the incredible week we just experienced with our friends and family. We honestly could not have dreamt of a more perfect day…


To be completely honest, I never really let myself think about my future wedding before I met Cam. As a wedding planner, you are always so engaged and excited for other people and sharing in their special day. I knew one thing; if I ever fell in love and was in charge of planning my own wedding, it would have to be at the lake. Luckily, Cam is as much of a lake person, if not more than me! My family is so incredibly blessed to have property on beautiful Lake Pend O’reille in Murphy Bay. The property has been in our family for generations and is so special to us. It was the perfect setting. Our theme of the week was “come to Murphy Bay and enjoy” – we definitely took that to heart!


Of course, none of this would have been possible without our incredible families. Anyone who has spent more than 2 minutes with my parents knows that they are the most giving, supportive, creative and crafty people you will ever meet. As we began planning, I honestly would hand my mom and dad sketches of ideas and they nailed it! My dad built our entire bar from old dock wood we had held on to, constructed our birch wood arbor from trees in our back property and rewired all of the antique chandeliers for my mom to begin working her magic. My mom built all 5 chandeliers out of twigs, paper-mached our moose-head above the bar, drew our incredible “guest book tree” and water-colored each individual place card with the help of my Grandmother. These are just a few of the amazing handcrafted touches they created.  Truly AMAZING!!


I have to also thank our incredible vendors that made this day even more special. What I love the most about this entire experience is that I was able to work with my friends. With roughly 500 weddings under my belt, it is incredible to think of the hours logged in with some of these people. We just felt so honored to share this day with all of them and continue to be blown away by their incredible work and artistry (see vendors below).


We are feeling so overjoyed and only wish we could do it all again!

  23. […] Lindsay an Offsite Catering Bride – Lindsay was one of our favorite 2013 brides.  For one, Lindsay had a hand in the success of Beacon Hill Catering and Events, as the Event Director for 9 years.  She was married on private property on Pend Oreille Lake amongst close family and friends.  It was so fun to be able to offer Beacon Hill’s Catering and service at her wedding and be a part of such a meaningful day. We were truly honored to cater this event.  For more images of Lindsay’s beautiful lakeside wedding, click here. […]
