    Coutts was the perfect venue for our wedding! The property is extremely well maintained and the staff are accommodating, creative, and friendly. They made our experience very special.

    Wedding Venue

    I’m SO glad we found this venue. Shawn has been so accommodating, answering all of my emails and helping us with our special day. We had SO many compliments on our venue. Everywhere you look, it’s beautiful. There is such a variety of flowers and gardens. We didn’t even need to bring flowers to decorate, because the venue is so gorgeous to begin with. The photos are incredible - between the poppies, the rose garden, the elm allee, the mountains in the background; I couldn’t think of a more beautiful location. They also provide and set up the tent, tables, and chairs. This was 100% the right place!

    Dream venue

    My husband and I wanted a venue where we could hold both the ceremony as well as the reception and we feel as though we hit the jackpot with the Coutts Centre. We still talk about how beautiful and perfect it was a year later. The grounds are actual magic and we wouldn't have chosen a different venue even if we had an unlimited budget -- it was perfection. 10/10 would recommend.

    Incredible hidden gem of a wedding venue

    I've photographed countless weddings, family sessions and engagements at the Coutts Centre over the last decade (long before it was a venue). It's nothing short of stunning. You will love having cozy getting ready areas, plus the stunning outdoor areas for your ceremony, photos and reception. You will love working with Shawn and her team to help keep your day on track!

    Stunning place for weddings

    I married my best friend here and even though, nothing was in bloom, it still made for some amazing photos with how each section is set up. I would marry my husband here all over again!

    Beautiful site

    I loved this site for photos and for my guests to walk around and enjoy. They were responsive and they provide many things for the price. Only thing is that they dont always have everything promised due to timelines of renovations.

    The best wedding venue around!!!

    This venue is beautiful! We had our wedding here and we barely needed any extra decor as the place was so gorgeous. From the arched tree aisle to the cute little houses on the grounds, this place is it. The staff and in house caterers are amazing. I could go on and on about how great this place is. The price is fantastic as well. This venue will soon blow up for being so amazing so get in while you can!!

    OMG this place!!

    The most perfect place for an outdoor venue with a large tent. The grounds provide the best backdrop for pictures. All the guest last couldn’t stop taking about how beautiful it was. On top of that everyone there was an absolute pleasure to deal with.
