Nothing is more “chicken soup for the soul” than a Toronto clubhouse wedding with dusty blues and garden blooms. Blue Lavender Events conjured up the most darling aesthetic including bespoke details like a hand-illustration of the venue to appear on the paperie, a heavenly gate backdropping the cliffside ceremony and an al fresco dinner with carved wooden chargers. Hunt & Gather Floral spruced up the golfing greens with a floral palette of creams, pinks, honeys and blues – how enchanting are those wildflower fillers? Kayla Yestal was the perfect choice to capture such a tender, love-filled day, and we can’t wait for you to stroll through picture lane below. Congratulations, Rebecca and Charlie!
From the Wedding Planner, Blue Lavender Events: Rebecca and Charlie’s micro wedding is proof that small weddings and big style go hand in hand. They hosted their nuptials at the Toronto Hunt Club where Charlie grew up playing golf with his parents since his childhood. When he met Rebecca, he discovered that she shared the same love of golf – so every summer, they would spend their Saturday’s here for 6 years. Everytime they played, Rebecca would notice weddings set up off the 9th hole and dreamed one day it would be them.
Their colour palette of dusty blue, soft peach, muted blush and yellow was inspired by the setting of the club perched high above Lake Ontario providing breathtaking views for their celebration. They commissioned an artist to sketch Rebecca’s favourite painting of the clubhouse to be included on the invitations and welcome sign. The same artist also provided a custom painting of Rebecca, Charlie and their pup for the guestbook and even went a step further by painting them in their wedding attire (which was kept a secret from the groom until the day).
After saying their vows in front of a beautiful arch facing the lake, a champagne sabrage kicked off the festivities where the couple shared an intimate evening with 25 of their closest friends and family. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the circumstances made everything more lovely – not less, and there was no shortage of love, connectivity and joy on this beautiful day.
From the Couple: We met in 2013 and got engaged in 2019 in Italy! Charlie proposed at sunset on a lookout point that overlooked the rolling hills of Tuscany.
We envisioned our wedding being at our golf course, overlooking Lake Erie and incorporating the beautiful scenery into our overall vision of our day. We’ve spent our entire relationship playing golf together, its a passion of both of ours. Almost every weekend when we were playing golf, we’d be coming up the 9th hole to see a beautiful wedding taking place. We always thought one day that would be us, and it was! We’ll now have the memory of our wedding day at the Hunt Club as we stroll up the 9th hole in the many years to come.
We had originally planned to have our September 2020 wedding with 120 guests. When Covid hit in Toronto in March 2020, we decided to hold off before moving forward with any more planning. As we got closer to the summer, we made the decision to cancel the big wedding we had originally planned and move forward with a 20 person wedding. Just our family and a few close friends. And honestly, it was the best decision ever! It was such an intimate group to share our special day with and was absolutely perfect from start to finish. We will cherish the memories we have from our wedding day forever.
R+C’s Toronto clubhouse wedding was an absolute vision! And their Frenchie, Bowser, was an absolute star. We can’t get over his petite tuxedo collar! More spiffy fashion ideas for your Dog of Honor this way next!
