The Kortright Centre for Conservation is one of my favourite venues around Toronto. It’s a bit outside of the city, but the surroundings are worth the trip.
There are 3 options for wedding ceremony sites and all of them are awesome. Two of the options are in the middle of the forest. They are absolutely beautiful if being in nature is your kind of thing.
I know one concern that you might have about being in nature for a wedding is bugs, especially mosquitoes. I have been to the venue numerous times and there have been some, but it generally hasn’t noticeable. They also have reasonable options in case of rain. This is another really important consideration for outdoor weddings and this venue has you covered (literally).
Chris and Jane had some pre-ceremony lemonade available (it was a bit warm that day). It’s a cute and simple setup, with paper straws, and a chalk board showing the way.
They also had these cute cards that they asked their guests to fill out with well wishes on their rsvp cards. They then hung the cards as part of the decor for everyone to see.
Sticking with the nature decor, they used pine cones as place card holders.
The Kortright Centre’s glass house is an amazing place for a reception. Your cover but still in nature
The pink, white and gold flowers were quite pretty.
They went very well with the home made cookie favours. The cookies were delicious too :).
Here’s there simple (but sweet) candy table that was devoured by guests. I love the “All you need is love” candy table sign.
Weddings at the Kortright Centre for Conservation are some of my favourites. It’s such a different venue than anything that you’ll find in the city. You get be outside in a covered area, but not under a tent.
Dancing is outside under the lights if the weather is good. They also have a camp fire, which is great for s’mores and hanging out. If you’re looking for a laid back, beautiful and nature filled venue in or around Toronto, I think that the Kortright Center for Conservation is an amazing choice!
