Jessica and Aaron wanted a winter wedding and with a fresh snowfall and a ‘winter birch’ theme they were able to pull off the vision they were thinking of! Galt Country Club was the perfect backdrop for their wedding, with stunning views and amazing flexibility…

Bride & Groom: Jessica Mina & Aaron Soligo

Wedding Date: Saturday, March 9, 2019

Ceremony & Reception Location(s): “Our ceremony was at St.Ambrose Church in Cambridge and we had our reception at Galt Country Club (galtcountryclub.com). We picked the Galt Country Club because we loved the scenery and the big open windows of the ballroom. The staff were very friendly and so easy to work with and made our day stress free” – J&A

Theme: “We had a “winter birch” theme. We incorporated a lot of whites, light greys, and birch design” – J&A

Flowers: Special Events and Flowers (specialeventsandflowers.com) “Lynn used dusty miller, anemones, ranunculus, cabbage roses, blue thistle and lisianthus for the bridal bouquets. She also created 8 small glass containers with greens and flowers that were used on the pews at the church and then brought to the gift table at the Galt Country Club. Snaffle and Mane (snafflemane.com) created succulents in Birch logs which were used as the centrepieces.” – J

Décor: Special Events and Flowers (specialeventsandflowers.com) also did our main décor. We used a backdrop that was open in the center to show the windows and ivory chiffon with the ends in grey. For ceiling work, we used a canopy with ball lights. Lynne was also in charge of decorating our head table which had candle holders and fresh flowers to match the theme of the wedding.” – J

Fav décor element: “I really loved the canopy with ball lights. It was a very beautiful addition and helped to transform the room from the afternoon of our reception to the evening.” – J

Cake: “We had a dessert buffet with mini donuts, carrot cake, and cheesecake from Galt Country Club” – J&A

Wedding favours: “The centrepieces of succulents in birch” – J

Catering: “Galt Country Club provided us with a  lunch buffet that had salmon, chicken, potatoes, and salad. So good!” – J&A

Photographer: Anne Edgar Photography & Film (anneedgarphoto.com). “We talked to so many photographers, but taking a look on Anne’s website I absolutely fell in love with her photos. Anne was great! She was very thorough and made sure that we were able to get all of the shots that were important to us. We also did our engagement session with her. My favourite part of our wedding photos was the snow and sunshine! We were lucky that there was a fresh blanket of snow for our wedding photos.” – J

Biggest challenge: “Finding a place that would accommodate our wants and needs. Many places that we looked at were very strict in their ways. For example, we wanted a late afternoon lunch (3 pm) and then dancing when the reception ended at 8 pm. Galt country club was the only place that let us make our own schedule for the day.” – J&A

Fav wedding memory: “Having all of our family and friends be able to join us on our special day.” – J&A

Advice from one couple to another: “Make sure you start the planning far in advance and be specific with your details when speaking to vendors and wedding planners.” – J&A
