Last weekend I had the opportunity to escape the busy city and head to Viamede Resort; a beautiful cottage-style lodge by Stoney Lake just couple of hours away.
The first night was a bit of a blur since we checked in pretty late. It was already dark outside, but as soon as I got some rest I was up really early and excited to explore the resort. Despite the rain, I still managed to have a great time walking around and checking out all the fun amenities (including a farm!) and eating delicious food.
Since this weekend was all about comfort and relaxing, I didn't bother taking a lot of clothes and accessories. I mainly needed a jacket, a couple of different options for tops, dresses and some shoes.
I accidentally forgot to pack my hair straightener and curler so my hair was naturally wavy all weekend. For some reason I've really been feeling the biker chick look, perhaps it's the jacket that inspires this trend. Either way it works well with this striped number, and the fitting of the dress still makes brings out the girl in me. This photo was taken at the Boathouse Pub; a restaurant located at the resort overlooking Stoney Lake. I love the royal blue walls contrasting with oak wood. If you ever eat here, I definitely recommend the Fish & Chips!
The rest of the day was filled with small walks, some TV watching/lounging, MORE food and a visit to the farm...
The farm at Viamede Resort is just a short walk from the main lobby, and probably one of my favourite things there. We got to see roosters, ducks, turkey and pigs! There may have been more animals but we decided to only take a quick peak since we were on an unsupervised tour.
I was sad to leave the next morning, especially since that was when the sun decided to come out. Regardless, we still got to enjoy it a bit in the morning before heading home.
It's no surprise that Viamede Resort is considered to be the perfect wedding destination for a lot of couples; it's charming, has a lovely lakeside view and a beautiful setup. We even got to witness a wedding! The chapel was really cute and prompted a quick style photo session. Now, I would never ever really wear this outfit to a wedding or a church for that matter (leather is a no-no for me), but I really like how these turned out.
Here is another look at the chapel. Isn't it just so lovely, surrounded by all the greenery?
Hope you enjoyed my cottage-style recap of Viamede Resort! If you're curious about all the delicious food served on-site, check out this post here.
