Romantic Whistle Bear Golf Club Wedding

It’s easy to love a wedding like this one.  Soft and romantic, completely beautiful and filled with sooo many amazing details, it’s impossible to narrow down a favorite.  From the lush, flowing blooms crafted by Charmed Flowers to the breathtaking setting to the sweet pink hues.  Head to THE VAULT for every moment captured by Oak & Myrrh Photography, then soak in the stunning film from Maple Tree Films below.


From Oak & Myrrh Photography… Kiera and Scott met in college through a mutual friend and although they faced the challenge of long distance at times these two college sweethearts are meant to be. After eight years together, Scott popped the question with their two little pups, Lily and Lucy, by their side. When considering their wedding style they knew they wanted to have an intimate and romantic celebration, surrounded by the warmth of their family and friends. The elegant venue, Whistle Bear Golf Course, provided an intimate space in their Rose Room with exposed wood beams that added an elegant rustic feel.

They chose a palette of blush and gold because they loved the soft romantic feel of this combination, as well as the whimsical feel of a pop of colour brought out in the bouquets, by Charmed Flowers, for a bit of contrast. Having an outdoor ceremony was important for them, but living in Canada where the weather is unpredictable it was important to have a venue that had an alternative indoor location for the ceremony that was just as beautiful – Whistle Bear was the perfect venue for this! Whistle Bear also has a selection of spots on sight that are beautiful, and they made the day feel relaxed and organized through their coordination. This enhanced the wedding day experience greatly.

Having live music during the ceremony proved to be a unique and special aspect for the wedding day, as well as having Scott’s aunt help with decorating the signage and some ceremony details – enlisting the help of creative family members makes the day so much more sentimental and unique!

Kiera’s favourite moments from the day was the reveal she had with her dad before the ceremony and the special talk they were able to have before he walked her down the aisle, and the moment she saw Scott’s smiling face at the top of the aisle waiting to exchange vows to become Mr. & Mrs.

Haley, from Charmed Flowers and Gifts, created the bouquets with garden roses, ranunculus, and dahlias, accented with blooms and greens. The bouquets was a perfect mixture of a soft and romantic feel, with a pop of colour to make give it a romantic whimsical feeling.

She felt beautiful on the day of her wedding thanks to the beautiful Brittania gown by Maggie Sottero. The lace details of the dress were breathtaking, and the gold ombre made this dress beautifully unique.

The cake was a two-tiered buttercream cake, and adding the fresh floral to the cake gave it an understated beauty and complimented the desert table so well.

One piece of advice from the Bride… “Don’t stress over every little detail on your wedding day. It goes by incredibly fast, so it is important that you relax and take in as many moments as you can. Take a moment to sneak away with your love – it is the perfect teem to connect and reflect on your special day!”

Boho Outdoor Wedding in Ontario

We love to share weddings of all shapes, styles and sizes, so this bohemian affair is a perfect change of pace. From the handmade macramé ceremony backdrop to the couple stealing kisses in a field of Queen Anne’s Lace, there’s so many reasons to adore this lovefest. Simply sit back and scroll through The Vault images from Jessica Rose Photography.


From The Bride… Our engagement was short. We just didn’t want to have to wait! We didn’t want big, we wanted to be surrounded by people we loved, to eat well, dance hard and raise a couple glasses. So we put four months on the clock and we were off.

The planning was a easy-breezy and things (more often than not) kind of just… fell into place. Being in the wedding “biz” myself, I’ve seen days like these come together in a month, so I knew we’d be fine. So much so that when I got word our intended photographer had suffered a broken ankle only days from our nuptials, I trusted and the universe pulled through. Enter Jessica; a woman so talented it oozes out her ears, so kind that it’s reflected in everything she does. She worked her magic and the images she so lovingly made are our very best memories frozen that we will treasure forever.

But I must back up…!

I bought my dress, Myles bought a non-suit and his favourite new shoes. My Mom made jam and Dad Deck built a bar. Cake flavours were decided and monogramed pins were pressed. Florals were gushed over and we secured Toronto’s finest for our taco bar. We compiled 7 hours of our favourite tunes and bought a crazy amount of chips for our late-night snack. Beer store research, wine tastings, sangria recipes, videographer wins, fireworks tutorials, hair and makeup practice.

Our close friend worked her magic with the design of our day and brought our vision to life. (Secret) vows were written, macramé was tied, engagement shots taken and wedding bands procured. All the while, we never lost sight of the reason for all these things, all these plans. In those four months we laughed together, we danced together and we loved each other deeper than ever.

And then all of a sudden, it was time. Time for curls and mascara. Time for the dress and a crown of blooms. I watched from the window as Jessica placed Myles in a field of queen anne’s lace and then with weak knees, I was out the door and making my way towards my husband-to-be.

“Are you there?” he asked.
“I’m here,” I said, my voice shaking.

He turned and it was magic: tears streaming down our faces, “I love yous” and kisses by the dozen, a deep understanding that this was it. From here, the day started to slip into fast forward, only slowing down for a few short moments.

To say that our day was all we could have hoped for would be an understatement. it was so much more. We professed our love and made our promises in the presence of people that mean the world to us and to us, that was the most important part. What was fun was being able to do it in an environment where we felt at home, one we knew our guests would love. We put so much of ourselves into the smallest details and it was so worth it. How incredibly special to have a day that’s 100% about the love you share with your soulmate!

Best. Day. Ever.

Quentin & Co’s Feminine Home Tour

I have a very good feeling that Shauna of Quentin & Co and I would be best of buds, based off of design-sense alone. The pure fact that I clicked on every single one of the sources and oohed and aahed at all the rooms in her sweet abode (can you handle her closet?!) is my proof. Manifesto Photography captured it all and you can put your pinning fingers to work in THE VAULT.

From Shauna of Quentin & CoThis airy and feminine space is where I call home! I designed and styled our place from scratch after a major renovation this past summer. I knew I wanted a space for my family that felt bright and clean, so I gravitated towards white, grey, and neutral colours, adding splashes of polished nickel with my fixtures for a bit of glam. Touches of rustic wood in each room add warmth and keep things from feeling sterile. It took a lot of hard work (and white paint!) to get here, but I love the results!

Kitchen + Dining Room

We renovated the first floor to create an open concept kitchen and dining space, complete with a cozy breakfast nook; definitely my favorite spot in the house! I chose a light grey tile for our floors, and went with durable Quartz counters that have the look of marble but can stand up to daily wear and tear. I chose to fill my gallery wall frames with a simple taupe Belgian linen that adds texture without feeling overdone. Our dining room features a large rustic dining table and a jute rug that makes it the perfect cozy spot for big dinners.

Office Space + Living Room

We painted this entire floor with Behr’s Ultra Pure White. We used the same shade on the fireplace with a high gloss finish to help bring as much light as possible in! My desk and lamp are both from IKEA, as is the large print hanging above the computer. I kept things black and white, opting to add pops of colour with my paper goods (all from Target) and fresh flowers.


Last on our list, but arguably the most important was the bedroom. As usual, I was aiming for a clean, minimal space with a sprinkling of rustic and feminine touches. Our light fixture is the greatest flush mount I’ve ever seen! It gives the room such height but doesn’t skimp on the glam factor. I hung Belgian linen drapes to give depth to our serene white tufted headboard and bedding. I always have my nightstand stocked with the essentials; books, a candle, and fresh flowers!


Our bathroom was another major renovation! We brought everything down to the studs and added clean white subway tile and shiny silver fixtures. I used the same Quartz as our kitchen to top our IKEA sink cabinet, and finished that off with a scalloped mirror I scored on Wayfair. A hint of powdery blue adds color but still feels spa like and at peace with the rest of the house’s neutral vibe.

Dressing Room

I was thrilled to have an extra bedroom to turn into the walk in closet of my dreams! I wanted it to look clean, and to let my clothing and accessories do the decor work. I picked up inexpensive clothing racks from IKEA, and arranged my prettiest bags and jewelry on a vintage bookshelf I set up in between. The best part is that the set up inspires me to maintain a minimal wardrobe of pieces I truly love, since they’re always on display!


This was the first space I completed when we moved in, and hands down the most fun to decorate. I wanted my baby boy to have a space that was warm and cozy, without feeling too childish. A sophisticated color palette of cream, ivory, and black did the trick! His iron Bratt Decor crib was the starting point, and from there I splurged on this plush West Elm rug that is perfect for cuddling up on while we play. The finishing touches are the Pottery Barn Kids wooden chandelier, and the adorable “Bonne Nuit” print that adds the perfect touch of whimsy.
