Four months (or two seasons) later, we returned to this exact same spot to celebrate the marriage of Lindsey + Mike on a gorgeous, summery day. This is their wedding story.

Wedding Photography Fusion at Meaford Hall in Meaford, ON

Calla + David | Wedding Photography Fusion in Collingwood, ON

It was a cold, windy, and rainy September morning, when we met Dave at Trout Hollow Farms (his mother’s house) in Meaford. But, the atmosphere of excitement in the air was far from cold or damp. We were greeted at the door by one of the many Mikes (three of Dave’s groomsmen were named Mike!). We quickly began talking, joking and documenting this special day. We captured some images of Dave getting ready and some candid moments with his groomsmen, as well. A drink and a game of “President” later, Dave and his closest friends were soaking in the pre-wedding excitement.

If you are searching for gorgeous wedding design ideas with innovative details, look no further. We’ve got you covered on today’s blog thanks to the dazzling designs of Cathy Lane.

Cathy Lane is the founder and design extraordinaire behind Panache Design Works located in Collingwood, Ontario. In August, I got the chance to see her in action, once again, at a local fund raiser. As you can see, she really had her artistic juices flowing for this event! She created three completely distinct, originally-designed rooms indoors, plus a brilliantly decorated outdoor patio. I was blown away! To be honest, I feel like these photos of her beautiful work can tell more about her remarkable talent, than I could ever articulate. Please enjoy.

Panache Design Works



Last November, I attended Posh, a workshop and retreat for female filmmakers. There, I received invaluable education and guidance from other women in the industry. One seminar, in particular, focused on the significance of the inspiration shoot. Three remarkable women, Dawn Kelly, Brea McDonald, and Meghan Simone, expounded on this idea through their short film creation for Style Me Pretty. This project emphasized the importance of seeking others whom you admire and working together to produce an inspiring piece. Immediately, I thought of Cathy Lane.

Cathy Lane is the founder and design extraordinaire of Panache Design Works located in Collingwood, Ontario. She was the creative vision behind one of our favourite Blue Mountain Resort weddings Brittany + David. We were blown away by her talent and awe-inspiring decor!

Last Saturday, we were fortunate enough to spend an afternoon with Cathy and her team as they prepared for a wedding at Lora Bay Golf Club. It was captivating to watch them work tirelessly as they transformed the room. Her attention to detail is astounding! From the centerpieces, to the overhead treatments, her brilliance speaks for itself. We learned so much and have gained even more respect for designers and the incredibly gorgeous work they can create.
