It was wonderful to be back at Northbrook Farm for this lovely fall wedding. Located just outside Orillia, and a short drive from Toronto, Northbrook Farm’s experience at hosting outdoor events comes through in every detail of the services they provide. Well tended perennial gardens and a delightful koi pond bring a calm beauty to the property. A large tent with transparent sides and an open span protects guests from the elements while giving an unimpaired view of the forest and gardens. Perfectly placed lights bring the property to life at night and a gorgeous century farmhouse provides a magnificent place to prepare for the ceremony. No wonder Northbrook Farm is such a high-demand location for outdoor events.
As owners of a multi-generational family business, Laurie and Chris Orser clearly invest a lot of time, energy and passion into Northbrook Farm. Their family history on this property extends almost two centuries, so we feel a natural connection to the Orsers given our own lengthy history in the area.
On this sunny October day, the team at Shaws Catering was delighted to add to the magic of the event by providing a fully catered custom bbq buffet. Friends and family of the bride and groom were treated to a delicious meal including maple bbq chicken breasts, maple glazed baby carrots, roasted baby potatoes, mixed garden salad and hot vegetarian pasta. Our friends Julie and Ron from A Great Mix bartending service played a key role in maintaining the jubilant atmosphere. We appreciate being included as caterers for this very special occasion and we extend our best wishes and congratulations to the happy couple.
