today i am off looking at wedding dresses, although i think i may have already decided on something. it never hurts to double check!

this week we officially booked our location!
(sorry, i realize this photo doesn't give you an idea of what the place looks like, haha)

our wedding will be June 25, 2011 at the Burlington Art Centre! i took art classes there when i was young but it was ivan who found it when we were searching for venues. we didn't want a traditional 'hall' so we spent quite a bit of time trying to find alternate locations where we could hold the ceremony and reception.

the BAC is perfect! we can do both parts there and inside there are galleries, a greenhouse and a courtyard. perfect! and we can decorate however we like. we are soo excited to have this step behind us.

did you have your wedding at an interesting location? i would love to hear about it!


ps. thank you so much for your sweet compliments on my blog makeover. i am so happy with it and i am glad you guys like it too :) i am totally in love with my blog at the moment and i am so thankful for everyone who pops by and says hello. you guys make my day!


  1. Your day is going to be so beautiful! I'm so happy for you.
    My hubby and I were married on a hill under a big Heritage oak tree in northern California. You know, the trees that are each registered and dated. Some of the oak trees are hundreds of years old.
    It was so nice. We did'nt want to be inside any manmade structure, it fit us perfect. That way we never had to deal with a building being torn down in the future or anything like that, does that make any sense?
    Anyways, thanks for sharing your plans, it brings all of those wonderful memories back.
    Enjoy it all! xoxoxoxox

  2. That sounds like such a unique and individual place to have a wedding, perfect for you. I had my wedding at an Eco conference centre which was also a farm so all the food was organic and grown on location. It was perfect for us because we are environmentalists.

  3. That sounds like a fun place! I got married in a museum. The ceremony was in a stained glass exhibit an the reception was in the main gallery. It was really pretty awesome :) oh and our theme was cooking for the whole wedding. My husband and I met in culinary school. Our centerpieces were bouquets of kitchen utensils. :) I have tons of photos!

  4. I went to a really fun wedding where the reception was in the dinosaur room of a local science museum. The bride and groom sat at a little table right underneath the T-Rex, which was so fantastic.
    The new blog look is so great! Congrats on a beautiful design :)

  5. Ah, I love to hear about weddings! We had a SUPER quick wedding (in Vegas, by Elvis) so there wasn't too much planning. I loved our wedding, but I just love seeing other peoples ideas for weddings. And dress shopping is definitely the most fun!

  6. I love weddings!♥ I bet yours is going to be so beautiful. ;)

  7. AHH! I am so excited for you! Hoo-ray for finding a place! :)

  8. Awesome! I bet it will be the perfect wedding! You are so creative...can't wait to see your dress!!!

  9. Oooh! An Arts Centre! That's such an awesome idea :)

    My husband and I got married on a little farm in Portland, Oregon. The ceremony was held under a beautiful, huge old oak tree.

  15. that sounds so great! can't wait to see details of the dress! we got married 5 (almost 6!) years ago at a martini bar/restaurant! It had 30ft. floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbour and a great staircase that i walked down to meet my man .... i was so scared of bailing on the stairs that i had my mom and dad on either side of me while i walked down!

  16. We're getting married on the same day!
