    Very Dissapointed

    Had a viewing of the venue and really liked the look of the rooms that were shown to us. The let down came when I sent an email the next day for more information because I had thought up of some questions after I returned home. I sent my email in March and I still haven't gotten a response, so I have booked my wedding somewhere else.

    Pillar and Post's reply:

    We truly wish you all the best Mireille.
    We did enjoy showing you the Hotel and we did reply back to you right after the tour with information. In the package we gave was our phone number and direct email.

    We did not receive a follow up email from you with questions.
    The name we have on file is Mireille Bilodeau with your email address - mimieb@gmail.com. So sorry you didn't receive our what you were looking for.

    Again all the best!

    Perfect venue for a Christmas wedding

    We absolutely loved our wedding. Guests said they had the most relaxing weekend at the hotel and said the wedding was so beautiful. Having everything on site made life easier. Our wedding coordinator Annette was just lovely and so understanding, even when we were late to our own ceremony.

    The men鈥檚 day of room was so much fun. The spa was perfect, the ceremony & reception room was beautiful, and partially decorated which saved us. And the staff, including the bartender was just amazing!

    We are so happy we chose Pillar and Post!

    Pillar and Post is beautiful. Our outdoor ceremony at Miller House and reception in the Upper Canada Hall was perfect!

    Planning process: Our coordinator Farin always responded very quickly answering all of my many questions. Planning was smooth and organized!

    Food: Amazing! The quality was so good and everything was cooked perfectly. Our guests are still telling us how amazing the food was and how impressed they were.

    Bar: Our bartender Jason was fantastic! He handled our 100 person wedding by himself and no one ever waited for a drink. He went over and above his duties as well. He even got the red wine stain out of my husband's shirt!

    We couldn't say enough great things about Pillar and Post. We would highly recommend!!

    Excellent experience

    We had our wedding fully planned at Pillar and Post but had to move the reception outdoors at the last minute due to vaccine requirements. They were sooo accommodating and helped us find another venue within the Vintage group to hold the reception. We continued with the ceremony at Pillar and Post in the Rose Garden and it was perfect. It was so affordable ($600 for up to 120) and absolutely beautiful. We also got ready and stayed at Pillar and Post and the rooms were huge and comfortable.

    The Perfect Little Wedding Reception

    The Pillar & Post hotel made our wedding reception (and ceremony) the lovely, intimate gathering we were looking for.
    From working with us on the menu (at the time, the smallest group pricing they had was for 30 people, we had 19), to ensuring we had everything we needed on the day of, the service was impeccable (thank you, Farine!).

    We couldn't have a better wedding if we tried!

    Sincerely,
    Stephanie & Garreth - August 2021

    Very beautiful venue

    We got married here August 2021. The venue and gardens at pillar were a beautiful location for our perfect day. Food was fantastic at the wedding and exactly as we remembered it at our tasting. Everything exceeded expectations and we could not have been more thrilled. I will say in the planning stages responsiveness and communication could have been better but they were very flexible in making everything come together.

    Very flexible!

    We loved working with Pillar and Post! We had to make many changes to our original plan to due to COVID, and the Vintage Hotels team was consistently flexible and communicative with us.

    Dream Wedding

    The Pillar and Post worked tirelessly to make our wedding the perfect day. They are so easy to work with, they work well with other vendors (we used Clippings for the florist and Simply Beautiful for decor). We really had nothing to worry about the day of. Thank you Pillar and Post team!

    Pillar and Post's reply:

    The room looked amazing and so did you! Thank you very much for your review.
