Amazing in every way!

To Lauren and all of the staff at Whistle Bear,
THANK YOU! Thank you so much for helping to execute the wedding that we were waiting and longed for. The moment Caleb and I walked into the venue, we knew immediately that it was for us. We got so excited about everything and most importantly, the place where it all would begin for us. The booking process was very smooth and easy, even when COVID threw a wrench in our plans. We did end up having to postpone and even though this was not the easiest decision to make, the staff at Whistle Bear made the date change happen. They were on the ball and organized (matched me on my organizational level :)) when it came to the planning and execution of our wedding. Anything that we needed, they provided. Any question that we had, they answered. Any ideas that we bounced off of them, they contributed very helpful responses. The FOOD….OMG THE FOOD!!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. It was hands down the best food I have ever had at a venue and the best prime rib I have ever had in my life. We have been craving it ever since. All of the guests even commented on how amazing it was. The maitre d and concierge (Katie and Melinda) were incredible and helped to execute the day perfectly. They constantly checked in with Caleb and I to make sure we had everything that we needed. Overall, we were extremely happy with Whistle Bear and how everything turned out during (what could have been) a very stressful event. We cannot thank you enough.

BEST place to get married!!

I can’t say enough great things about Whistle Bear. Everyone who works here is incredible - responsive, flexible, and helpful every step of the way. Leah was our consultant as we planned our wedding and she was so amazing to work with. Julia was our Maître D throughout our wedding day and kept everything on track and organized the whole day! She always made sure we had food and drinks, and worked constantly behind the scenes to keep everything going. I really can’t express how amazing she was - thank you Julia!!! I received so many compliments about how organized the wedding was, and how beautiful the venue is. It’s truly so stunning - between the ceremony chapel, the golf fields/waterfalls, and the beautifully decorated reception space. It’s the most perfect, magical place to get married. And the food!!! Again, I had so many compliments about the food.
The staff at Whistle Bear will work with you every step of the way to make sure your wedding is your DREAM day. Ask, and they deliver. Thank you SO much to Leah, Julia, and everyone at Whistle Bear for hosting the absolute most perfect day for me and my husband.

Best Dat Ever

I can’t say more great things about Whistle Bear and the Pearle team! They went above and beyond to make our day perfect! We worked with Leah throughout the planning process and she was amazing to work with, and answered any questions we had throughout. Natalie was our day of coordinator and she was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed during our rehearsal and our wedding day! All the staff were so friendly and helpful, I would also like to thank immensely the staff that helped pack up all our table decor at the end of the night! We also got so many compliments on the food and how gorgeous venue was! It was such an incredible day and evening I can’t recommend Whistle Bear enough! Thank you again to everyone at Whistle Bear who helped make our day perfect!

Outstanding Staff & Experience

Lauren and her team at Whistle Bear were amazing to work with and made our day so special! They made it their priority to make our wedding perfect. Lauren was so easy to work with, and did an incredible job helping us navigate through COVID-19. She was very supportive, patient and responsive throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding Melinda was our maître d'. She did such an incredible job ensuring everything went to plan and making sure we had everything we needed. She provided so many personal touches, and you could tell she really cared about making our day special. The grounds and the Forestview room are also so beautiful and exactly what we pictured for our wedding! Thank you Lauren, Melinda and the rest of the Whistle Bear team for making our day perfect! We would highly recommend this venue!

Our perfect venue!

We recently had our wedding at Whistle Bear Golf Club in the Rose Room. The venue was very accommodating with all the COVID changes. Our consultant, Leah, was excellent throughout the entire planning process and very patiently answered all of our many questions. The staff went above and beyond to help bring our wedding vision to life and make the day special. Our team on the wedding day was very professional and did a great job. The food was delicious! The venue was absolutely gorgeous! We loved the garden chapel for our ceremony as it was a reliable location regardless of weather. The Rose Room is absolutely stunning and definitely worth seeing in person. Unfortunately it rained and stormed for the entire time we were on site at Whistle Bear and we didn't find there to be many great photo options inside. If the weather is nice, the photo locations outside are spectacular, which the venue allowed us to enjoy on a different date.

Highly Recommend!

I would recommend Whistle Bear Golf Club to EVERYONE! They made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process and especially on the wedding day. Melinda was there by my side the entire day making sure I was where I needed to be at all times. Her and Katie were so attentive making sure me and my husband had everything we needed throughout the entire night- bringing us drinks and extra food to try! Simply AMAZING staff.

The venue and grounds themselves are absolutely beautiful! Every single one of my guests could not get over the beauty of Whistle Bear. If you’re thinking of getting married here, please do it. You will not be disappointed!!

Leah + WB Team are amazing!

Leah was a blessing to have on our side as we navigated postponing our June 2020 wedding to September 2021 because of gathering restrictions. She was accommodating, helpful, and communicated well. She was able to answer all of our questions quickly and accurately - we never had any complaints or trouble with Leah. She was well organized and was also knowledgeable about the ongoing changes in event limits and restrictions. She helped ease our stress and helped us to enjoy the process.

While we didn't see Leah on our wedding day, we know that she passed all of the information on to the day-of coordinating team because they were well prepared and knew everything that was going on. The WB team and Leah are great and make your wedding day experience much better.

Would Recommend 100%

We chose Whistle Bear Golf Club as our wedding venue after touring many different venue locations in the KW area. We were blown away by their menu quality, customer service, and professionalism. Our original wedding date was set for June 2020. Unfortunately the pandemic postponed our wedding numerous times. We dealt with three separate wedding coordinators during the process. However, Whistle Bear was more than accommodating during a time of so much uncertainty. They honoured our original contract, unlike many other vendors during the pandemic. Lauren was able to see us through to our confirmed wedding date in August 2021. She was very patient with us and answered all of our questions via phone or email (there were many questions). Our reception was in the Rose Room and we were fortunate enough to use the terrace that day. Our guests raved about the beauty of that venue and the excellent service they experienced. Our 70+ guests were served within minutes of each other. The menu dinner and drink selection was amazing. We had numerous guests approach us after to tell us this was the best dinner they've ever had at a wedding. Melinda (our day of) helped ensure the day ran smoothly without issue. We have so many fond memories of our wedding. If you're considering booking your wedding in the KW area, we would highly recommend Whistle Bear.

Loved our wedding at Whistle Bear Golf Club

We had the best experience hosting our wedding at Whistle Bear Golf Club. The venue itself if stunning! We fell in love with the Forest View room and our guests loved the option of spending the evening indoors and outdoors. The service and hospitality was exceptional! From the day we booked, through COVID stresses we felt very supported by the staff and event coordinators. Our day of coordinator was wonderful and made the day seamless.
If I were to plan our wedding all over again I would chose Whistle Bear again and again. Thank you to all the amazing staff that made our day perfect !
