Gorgeous venue

The venue was everything we wanted. All our guests very much enjoyed it. One drawback: the noise complaints from the neighbours have pushed the owners to put more restrictions on music volume as well as to shut down the music earlier. They were very good about letting us know, and gave the option to get our deposit back, but it was so close to the date we were not able to consider it. We don't regret our choice of venue at all, but it is something to consider for people interested in this venue.

Venue of our dreams

Cedar Haven is the most beautiful venue! We are so glad we went with this venue. The package we booked included everything we needed. They were extremely flexible with the planning process and the team was always around to lend a helping hand with the set up. The venue coordinator, Sarah, went above and beyond to help us along the way, including during our ceremony rehearsal. She even went as far as fixing my train before walking down the aisle. Her husband, Bruce, smudged the entire ceremony site the day before the wedding. My mother asked if he would quickly smudge me, the bride, while he was smudging the venue. He agreed and also smudged my whole family in the most beautiful impromptu ceremony, offering us blessings for a wonderful wedding day. We were gifted sage from him as well. The team went above and beyond to meet our unique needs and I was so grateful for all their help and guidance. 10/10 recommend.
