    Stunning Venue for Our Perfect May Wedding

    From the moment we walked through the door, my husband and I both fell in love with this venue. After meeting Moira, it became clear that this was where we were meant to be married. Not only was the location absolutely stunning, we also have the opportunity to return again each spring when the restaurant is open for maple season. After the many months of planning, we truly felt like we were a part of the Temple’s family. Moira and her excellent staff were with us every step of the way! From late night emails, to panicked phone calls, every worry was alleviated by Moira and her team. The planning process was a breeze with Temples, who also offer on-site catering and use of various beautiful decorations. We picked the garden site for our ceremony and were blessed with good weather, but gladly would have been married in the beautiful building. Moira was confident that we would have a perfect day and had told us if it rained, they would do everything possible to get us outside. Moira made sure that before the wedding she was up to date on all of the details and was aware of all vendors involved (who all spoke highly of Temple’s). On the day of, I was confident that the wedding would go smoothly in Temple’s hands. They had lists of where all of our decorations were to go, wrote on chalkboards for us, and even added a few special touches! My bridesmaids commented on how much better they felt having someone to cue them down the aisle. Not only was I at ease with Moira greeting me at the beginning of the aisle, but I also felt like a princess having my own personal “dress train fluffer” at the beginning of the main aisle. After the ceremony, staff were constantly circulating with appetizers. My husband and I were delivered our own special plate while we took photos. We got numerous comments on how delicious our appetizers were and how so many people were worried they wouldn’t have room for dinner! The mini fish and chips and maple glazed bacon wrapped cheddar were especially big hits. We were able to attend a food tasting prior to the wedding and had such a hard time deciding on what food to have because it was all so delicious. The staff was attentive during dinner and any concerns were taken care of immediately. Prior to the wedding dietary restrictions and allergies had also been discussed and planned for accordingly. Our vanilla custard in a waffle bowl for dessert was another especially popular hit. The staff quickly changed the room at the front to create a dance floor after dinner. After the wedding, everything was cleaned up and boxed up incredibly efficiently for our parents to take home. Temple's even had a selection of mini maple syrup bottles that we chose for wedding favours and everyone loved them! It was a hard goodbye and we could feel the genuine love from Moira and her staff towards us. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism and respect from these individuals. Our day was truly perfect because of Temple’s and we cannot wait to visit again each spring. Anyone who chooses to have their wedding here will not regret it. Thank you all again!

    The Best Wedding Venue EVER!

    I cannot say enough good words about Temples and our experience there for our wedding. From the time we first saw the venue we were in love and knew it was a perfect match. Moira and her team were simply better than we could have ever imagined at orchestrating our dream day. From the beginning they were very organized, friendly, and 100% focused on making things as easy yet as perfect as possible for our special day. They even have decor you can borrow, although it is beautiful enough inside that you really don't need a lot! I had zero worries the day of the wedding! I mean ZERO! We have had a million compliments on the decor, the environment, and of course the food. I have NEVER been to a wedding with such great food, big portions, a variety of options. It was served family style nice and warm and there was no delay in waiting to be served. The outdoor ceremony sites were both gorgeous, well maintained and perfect for pictures. I really could go on and on about how much our guests, my husband, and I loved our time there- I get butterflies just driving by the sign!!

    Amazing food, people and venue! Our guests were so impressed with everything! The team at Temples went above and beyond for everything and gave any help or advice when needed. They really made the day go so smoothly. We were not stressed at all because we knew Temples were so on the ball! We made an excellent choice when we booked with Temples sugar bush.
