A Wedding At The Whistle Bear Golf Club
Toronto wedding photographer Kayla Yestal shares Natalie and Dylan’s sweet day.
From the bride, Natalie…
Looking back on our wedding day, my favourite parts were some of the smallest moments that we made time for throughout the day! One of the most surprising standouts was getting ready with my girlfriends and family in the stunning Orchard Suite at Langdon Hall . I had always heard from friends who were married before us how anxious and full of nerves the morning was for them, but mine was definitely the opposite! We sipped mimosas, ate freshly baked pastries, had a dance party, and got ourselves all glammed up with the help of Taylor Switzer and Bridal Bridal Hair Collective . It really couldn’t have been a more perfect start to our day, and choosing Langdon Hall as our prep location was by far the best decision I could have made for our morning!
I had a very minor wardrobe malfunction while getting ready that was quickly solved with the help of my mother-in-law and the sewing kit in a Pinch Provisions Mini Emergency Kit that my maid of honour gifted me! You think you won’t use them but trust me – you will. The atmosphere when getting ready will set the tone for the day and is one detail not to overlook! It definitely kept me calm while we were scrambling and I’m so thankful that I took the time to plan out our morning to be so stress free. Make a playlist, have a ton of delicious snacks, grab some bubbly, and have fun!
All of the laughs during our post-ceremony photo session with Kayla Yestal was a highlight for my entire wedding party. Our friends have no problem being in front of a camera and we spent the whole time joking around with our photographer and having fun exploring on golf carts! It was a great way to kick off the reception portion of our day!
Everyone who knows me, knows my love of neutral palettes – and our wedding was no exception. We stuck to whites, creams, and grey, with a few key metallic details. I was also super keen on having only whites, creams and cascading greenery for flower arrangements, and Living Fresh executed my vision flawlessly.
If I could leave future brides with any advice when planning, I’d definitely say to stick to gut feelings when you make decisions. This day is about you and your partner, so if you can help it – do what you feel is best!
