    What an Amazing Spectacular Venue!!! Our guest were blown away

    This venue is amazing and the owner is very flexible and easy to work with. Everyone that attended the wedding were blown away by this place!!! There is a house on the premises that the bridal party were able to use to get ready for the wedding which made it so easy and stress free. I can't say enough about this venue and I would recommend it to one and all!!! Thank you for making my daughter's wedding (Teana and Trevor Sedgwick October 2, 2021) so spectacular!!!

    The Heritage Centre by Mountain View Events's reply:

    Heather - Thank you so very much for your kind words. Wishing you and your family a Happy Holiday and all the best for 2022. Debora

    Beautiful Location

    I got married at the Heritage Centre last month and it was magical. The venue is just stunning! We didn't need much to dress it up. We took our photos at the venue and there are so many different scenes. We took pictures in the barn, house, forest area, and fields. The owner (Deborah) is so accommodating especially during this time of uncertainty. If you book this venue you won't be disappointed.

    A Prairie Treasure

    The MVE Heritage Centre, known by most as Cremona's Big Red Barn is the most beautiful wedding venue in Mountain View County. The restored barn is breathtaking for an elegant wedding. You can choose to add your own personal touches but the wood itself is gorgeous and highlights the beauty of the bride. Families planning a Wedding on The Prairies must book this venue. Our daughter's wedding day will forever be remembered for the warmth, seamless flow, and fabulous hospitality. The MVE Heritage Centre is a treasure at reasonable cost.

    Recommendation for MVE The Heritage Centre

    We are beyond blessed to have had our wedding at MVE The Heritage Centre. This venue was a dream come true! It brought us the modern/rustic look we always wanted. We had our perfect outdoor ceremony with our barn room reception! We loved the venue and the staff. Special thanks to Deb who worked with us to make our dream come true!

    COVID Friendly Wedding

    Because of COVID, at the beginning of April, with an extremely heavy heart, my fiancé and I decided to postpone our wedding scheduled for June 12th, 2020.
    As the day approached I was loosing my mind with emotion about how “our special day” that had been in the works for 2 years, was not so special anymore. The Heritage Centre came up as an add for COVID friendly weddings, and with the restriction being having outdoor events of up to 50 people, we were contemplating just that. Deb had gotten back to me within a half hour, little did she know that she quickly became the fairy god mother of my dreams! She had told us what the COVID friendly packages were and the remaining dates available for 2020, June 12th being the first. With talking to my amazing parents, and my fiancé’s amazing ex, we were able to have his little girl and hit the ground running to plan a whole wedding in 17 days! That sounds nearly impossible, but Deb and Wendy made my dreams and even more possible! The Tuesday before our big day, my mom, my soon to be mother in law and I went to start decorating the outside portion that we were able to use for dinner (includes a bar). At 12:30 pm we were hit with another update regarding COVID, but this time it was in our favour! We were allowed 50 people inside, which meant we were able to get married in the breath taking historical barn!
    Friday came, and Deb and Wendy were the star of the show! I am still getting messages and phone calls saying it was the best wedding and Deb and Wendy were the most wonderful people! I can not thank this facility, Deb and Wendy enough! Just the simple “you look beautiful” made my night even that much more spectacular! Thank you so much! Our COVID wedding was meant to happen, and you guys made it happen! I will never be able to repay you enough!

    The Heritage Centre by Mountain View Events's reply:

    Princess Melissa - you are my favourite Sassy Bride - your infectious humour made working with you a great pleasure! Hope to see you again soon!

    Heartfelt and Warm

    Believe it or not, I booked this venue without having seen it. I was only able to view it about a month before our wedding... Covid-19 disrupted our wedding plans in many, heartbreaking ways. In spite of it all, we had a lovely experience having our wedding at this venue. Debora and her team are kind-hearted people and treated us like their own. At a time when things were so uncertain due to the pandemic, it was incredibly stressful planning our Vedic wedding. Still, she was keen on learning about our traditions and accommodating us as we all tried to figure out details around hosting a Covid-19 edition wedding. If there is one vendor I would say was the most compassionate, understanding and consistent in performance, it would be the MVE Heritage Centre's team.

    Wedding Saved - A Dream Come True

    Our experience with HC by MVE was nothing short of AMAZING. Deborah LITERALLY saved our wedding by hosting us. From the first connection by phone to the day of our wedding we were over whelmed by the kindness that MVE showed us. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the MVE team is incredible to work with - extremely professional in every aspect.

    The Heritage Centre by Mountain View Events's reply:

    Congratulations to Krysta and Russell a beautiful couple both inside and out. Krysta and her Mom Kim were a dream to work with - kind; polite and nice - I hope all my wedding families are as nice as the Holmes!!
