Family Vacations with Le Dolci

Family Vacation Critic is the go-to website for any parents looking for in-depth reports on family-friendly hotels, resorts, and destinations. Written by experienced family travel experts, as well as member submitted reviews, we were thrilled to see Toronto, and Le Dolci featured on their 9 Best International Family Vacations List.

Coming in at No. 1 on the list of Best International Family Vacations is Toronto, Canada. Big enough to offer plenty for the whole family, but small enough to still host that Canadian charm, Toronto is the ideal spot for a family vacation in 2019. Family Vacation Critic suggests heading to Ripleys Aquarium of Canada, or coming to Le Dolci for a family friendly baking class!

If you are coming on a family vacation to Toronto in 2019, or just looking to play a tourist in your own city, stop by Le Dolci and fill your day with a fun and delicious activity for the whole family. Have a look at our Online Class Schedule to see what baking skills you can learn from a pro! And remember, no trip to Toronto is complete without something yummy from your friends at Le Dolci.

Minimalist Pastel Wedding

Here at Le Dolci, we love when couples choose to take the elegant minimalist approach to their wedding. Sarah and Steve did exactly that this recently at The Great Hall Toronto and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Inspired by feelings like warm, organic, classic, cozy, intimate, romantic with a touch of vintage”Sarah and Steve accomplished the ultimate intimate wedding, with only 30 guests in attendance.

Our friends over at Blush and Bowties and White Oak were able to bring the colour scheme of rose gold, blush, cream, dusty pink and natural greenery to life. Even better was being able to decorate the wedding cake with fresh florals! We created a custom two-tiered version of The Allegra, decorated with fresh florals to match the gorgeous decor.

If you are looking for inspiration for a minimalist wedding in Toronto, look no further than this gorgeous shoot. See the rest of the photos on one of our favourite wedding websites, 100 Layer Cake.
