For a laid-back affair with a touch of downtown ’tude, book your “I dos” at the Drake Hotel’s recently opened Prince Edward County lodgings. The Drake Devonshire boasts a long list of wedding #wins, including lakeside ceremonies, panoramic views of nearby Lane Creek, twilight receptions under the stars and a beachfront fire pit. Plus, an in-house events manager is available to help you decide on important matters: Ping-Pong table at the reception? Strolling dinner or a full-on pig roast? Bitters in your custom cocktails? Needless to say, we’re expecting to toast many a new union at these kitschy-cool digs this summer—with or without the bitters.
