Natasha came to me for her weddings florals back in 2019 when her and Vito had originally planned to have their wedding at the vastly gorgeous Elora Mill. When the pandemic hit and they were faced with the decision to postpone, they booked a new date at the brand new Pearle Hotel & Spa, another grand venue under Pearle Weddings.
I remember when Natasha had informed me that they were switching their venue and I couldn’t have been more elated that it was now going to be at the Pearle Hotel. Coming from the hospitality industry and working in Sales and Marketing for Marriott, I had heard some buzz about this property being a part of their Autograph Hotels collection and was excited to have a hotel venue coming soon to Burlington, Ontario – so close to home! This area needs it in my opinion and it’s a wonderful additional option for couples.
Natasha wanted to keep things fairly classic and introduce hints of blue with thistle and was in love with white anemones. We carried that all throughout the bouquets, boutonnieres, the ceremony, and the reception.
The Pearle Hotel & Spa served as the first look, ceremony, and reception location. The clean lines of the hotel was a perfect backdrop for some modern minimalist photos, captured by Brandon Scott Photography.
For the ceremony, Natasha wanted to add an arch that wouldn’t take away too much for the background in-place in the ceremony space. She wanted to keep things modern and minimal so we used our circular arch and added some asymmetrical floral pieces and chiffon draping from Simply Beautiful Décor.
The reception space at the Pearle Hotel & Spa is absolutely breath taking. With views of the expansive Lake Ontario, hand blown glass art on the ceiling, and high ceilings – it didn’t need much! Plus, their standard chairs and tableware is what you see in the photos here. No need to rent fancy chairs, glassware, plates, or gold cutlery – Pearle Hotel has it covered! All that was added were some pillar candles, glass votives, a centrepiece, and dusty blue gauze table runners. We then repurposed the circular arch from the ceremony and added some additional floral pieces and candles to the head table and voilà!
Natasha and Vito finished off the evening with photos by the water and on the terrace (which will eventually become the hotel restaurant, Isabelle‘s, massive outdoor patio again looking over Lake Ontario.
I’m extra thankful and honoured to have been a part of Natasha and Vito’s wedding. I had shared some behind the scenes that day on our Instagram stories, which Pearle Weddings and Pearle Hotel & Spa shared also. I ended up booked a couple more weddings there for 2022 and a couple of others at other venues just because of that arch (which was all Natasha’s vision, btw!). The entire wedding, especially the attire, just suited the fluid and sensual feel of the Pearle Hotel and the way Brandon captured it really encapsulated the vibe of their venue.
Natasha and Vito – congratulations you two and wishing all the best for the both of you, beyond forever!
