The Portage Inn | A Dreamy DIY Muskoka Wedding Venue

Nestled in the heart of Muskoka, overlooking the Peninsula Lake, The Portage Inn is full of rustic charm and modern amenities. As a wedding photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing the magic of Erin and Colin’s special day at this delightful venue last summer.

You have the freedom to choose your own vendors and there’s no need for a liquor license since it’s private property. There’s also ample parking on site and the venue’s close proximity to Algonquin Park and Huntsville offers endless opportunities for exploration and adventure.

This is perfect for couples who want a more hands-on approach, that’s budget-friendly and has all the privacy and freedom. Couples can really infuse their personalities into every aspect of their wedding day, to create something that is truly unique and reflective of who they are.

“Inna has been such an amazing photographer and human to work with! She produces amazing images and is diligent with communication. From our engagement to our wedding, and even some spicy images Inna made sure we were taken care of and felt safe and seen throughout the whole process ”
