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.Sent on 05/10/2021
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.

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 !Sent on 28/08/2021

Our Perfect Intimate Wedding at Whistle Bear
Our experience with Whistle Bear Golf Club was absolutely amazing from start to finish, which was longer than expected due to the pandemic!
We booked back in 2018, just after we got engaged in November of that year. As soon as we walked through the doors we fell in love, it was like the feeling when you say "Yes" to the dress, it felt so right. We were set to marry in June of 2020 with 135 guests (with many from out of town), with the reception in the Rose Room & Terrace. From that point, to all of the Covid wedding postponement struggles in between, the team at Whistle Bear was always so accommodating and understanding.
Our coordinator Lauren was incredible, honestly the best! As you could imagine, I had so many questions and uncertainty about our new wedding date in May of 2021 with the Ontario province wide shut down, yet Lauren always answered so promptly and put us at ease.
Thankfully, despite all of the restrictions, we were able to get married on May 14 in the gorgeous Garden Chapel with our nearest and dearest. Our intimate number of family and friends that attended had a wonderful experience. Even our virtual guests were stunned at how beautiful the venue was.
Melinda our Maître D, was so great! She conducted our rehearsal Thursday evening and wedding day on Friday. She worked closely with our vendors on site that day to ensure we did not have to stress about anything.
Ian Campbell, our Whistle Bear Officiant was so lovely and professional. He really took the time and care that day to ensure that we were calm and everything went smoothly at the ceremony.
The food was amazing! Which we are so glad that we got the full experience during our menu tasting back in March pre-shutdown.
We are so thankful for and all that Lauren, Melinda, Ian, Hope, Alycia, Stephan and the entire WB Team did for us to make our day perfect!! They really went above and beyond in so many ways for us. My husband and I highly recommend Whistle Bear for a wedding or any other event!Sent on 13/08/2021

A dream come true!
My husband and I are so happy that we choose Whistle Bear to be our wedding venue. We fell in love with the beauty of it, from the moment we stepped into the lobby we were in awe! Each room is gorgeous and so are the grounds. We choose to have a winter wedding (January 25th 2020) and from the moment we started planning with Nikki we knew we were in good hands! Even though they see so many other couples, Nikki always made us feel important, didn't rush any of our meetings and we were truly excited to see her each time we met. She really listened to what we wanted and made sure that our vision came to life! She is beyond patient and would respond quickly to my emails. She felt like a friend by the end of it. Melinda was with us the day of the wedding and she made sure that there wasn't any hiccups and that things were smooth sailing! Her and Katie were a great team which we can't thank them enough.Sent on 25/05/2020
Our guests continuously raved about the beauty of the venue, the food and the hospitality and service! I would without a doubt recommend any future bride to look at Whistle Bear as venue. I'm hoping down the road that we get to come back as a guest for a friends wedding so that we can experience Whistle Bear all over again.

Our wedding at Whistle Bear in the outdoor chapel and Rose Room was a great experience beginning to end. They are a professional, experienced team that will help you each step of the way. Our consultations with Raylene and Leah were fabulous, and they are able to answer every question we had. Additionally, they also asked us questions about our day we hadn’t even considered.Sent on 06/01/2020
There is a huge benefit to their all-in-one approach, with ceremony venue, officiant, reception venue, photo location, day-of coordinator, and catering (among other options we didn’t opt into such as DJ services) all included. This took a huge stress off of planning overall, as we knew we were in good hands with all these aspects of the wedding covered by Whistle Bear. Every detail has been thought of - they even have personalized signs by the lobby front door to let your guests know when the shuttle bus will be arriving, if you are choosing to hire one.
While there are 3 weddings that can be hosted at the venue simultaneously, we never felt that we were sharing the space, or intruding on/being intrusive to another wedding. They have everything down to a fine art, and their long list of experience is evident.
Our day-of coordinator Mikayla was also wonderful. She helped us through our rehearsal 2 days before, and saw to everything we had mentioned and more on our wedding day. Things were taken care of without so much as a reminder. She was friendly, attentive, and helpful throughout everything. Signage and flowers were moved from the ceremony to reception seamlessly, and she even helped us fix the groom’s broken boutonniere right before we were set to walk down the aisle.
The grounds and facilities are beautifully kept, making for great pictures. The food and the menu tasting were both perfect, and if there are any unique requests or dietary restrictions, they are flexible in accommodating those specifications. With the amazing foundation they have set, you are able to add as little or as much additional touches and personalized aspects, and have your wedding be just as beautiful either way.
I would recommend booking Whistle Bear for your wedding a million times over. We had a truly amazing experience there, and are so happy we booked with them.
