Perfect Winter Wedding

We had an absolutely incredible experience with Deerhurst Resort for our winter wedding! Our first inquiry email was answered almost immediately, we were treated incredible when we went to tour the venue and every step of the way we were met with quick, helpful responses. We toured/sent inquires to a number of other venues and none of them made us feel like Deerhurst did. No matter how much they had going on we were always treated like a priority and as our wedding day approached it felt like no ask was too big/complex/impossible. Of course, the venue itself is also gorgeous! We were in the Tom Thomson room for our ceremony and the Peninsula Room for our reception.

Stephanie & Haley helped arrange all our details and I cannot say enough wonderful things about these two! They helped ensure we felt comfortable with how our planning was going every step of the way and worked to ensure all the details would be perfect. As our group started to arrive at the resort the service only got better. We had the absolute most perfect wedding experience with Deerhurst and every staff member we interacted with was incredible. I would recommend Deerhurst and their team to EVERYONE getting married.

Picture-Perfect Venue for a Picture-Perfect Day!

We chose Deerhurst almost immediately after getting engaged in 2020 and set our date for September 30, 2022. Deerhurst instantly caught our eye because it looks like something out of a fairytale! The venue is gorgeous - the views, the different locations to have a ceremony and reception and take photos - everything is perfection. We were working within a relatively tight budget for a wedding, and Deerhurst provides so many options that it was easy to have both the day we dreamed of and worked hard to plan, in addition to the perfect venue, food, and service. We never felt like we had to compromise. We chose our ceremony location as Sunset Bay Lawn and our reception was located in the Tom Thompson Room. The night before, we had a complimentary bonfire with all of our friends, our rehearsal dinner was absolutely delicious and Haley Mumby (Deerhurst's Wedding Coordinator) was there to respond to our every question as we rehearsed, and to top it all off, as my now-husband and I were preparing for our rehearsal dinner in our complimentary suite, Haley had chocolate-covered strawberries and prosecco delivered right to our room for us to enjoy! As we planned every last detail over almost 2 years, we had 1001 questions and Haley answered every single one. You can tell that Haley is a seasoned professional who cares about the work she does and the couples she works with. Haley was responsive to all of our requests and questions and we absolutely knew she was just as dedicated to giving us the perfect day we'd dreamed of as we were. We cannot say enough good things about Deerhurst, Haley, and it's amazing staff who came together to facilitate the best possible wedding experience. Our guests can't stop talking about the stunning location, how delicious the food was, their comfortable stay in the Pavilion Suites, and how they'd had such an amazing time overall! If you want a picture-perfect day that feels just as relaxed and easy as it is polished and stunning, then Deerhurst is the way to go!

Could Not Have Been More Perfect!

I truly do not know where to begin about how amazing our entire wedding experience was with Deerhurst Resort!! Haley Mumby, our wedding coordinator/event specialist from Deerhurst was the most wonderful, organized, kind, helpful, mind-easing human ever. If you want a seamless wedding planning experience, and a stress-free wedding day, BOOK HERE! From start to finish Haley dealt with everything in a way that made us feel like we didn't have to worry about a thing. It is clear she knows exactly what she's doing. She had an answer and solution for everything. She is so efficient and it was a luxury having someone like that to work with.

Aside from Haley being so wonderful, the rest of the Deerhurst staff were also amazing! We felt like we made a bunch of new friends in their staff. They were so accommodating, always checking in on us and asking if we needed anything or if they could help. I felt like a celebrity. Cannot say enough good things.

We had a pizza party and bonfire on the beach on the night before the wedding, the Friday evening. It was amazing and everyone had a blast. The food at the reception on Saturday was SO good, everyone commented on it and said how great it was. We had the chicken and salmon as our two main entree options and a vegetarian risotto as a veg option. Everything was perfect.

The ceremony was right by the lake on Sunset Bay Lawn, again, could not have been a more perfect set-up. Haley and Stephanie were there to help keep us on track and it was delightful to have them. There are so many beautiful spots for photos on the grounds it's hard to choose!

I could go on and on about this weekend, but I'll wrap this up by saying if I could do this all over again, I would do it EXACTLY the same and not change one thing. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we were treated wonderfully, and I have not one complaint or regret. Thank you SO MUCH to Deerhurst for being so professional yet kind and fun. We will never forget this weekend and we are so excited to come back to the most beautiful resort and celebrate every year! We feel very lucky to have had such an amazing experience. Do yourself a favour and book here. THANK YOU!!!!

Absolutely Amazing

We were married December 2020, yay pandemic weddings. From the beginning of the pandemic all the way through to our wedding day (and beyond), the wedding coordinator Haley was so attentive, transparent, and helpful. We can honestly say our wedding would not have been a success without her and the rest of the Deerhurst staff. Every staff member we interacted with was incredibly kind and generous. We felt completely safe and welcomed throughout our stay, as did our guests which was so important to us. We had to make a number of adjustments due to the pandemic, and Haley was with us every step of the way. She went above and beyond for us. We feel so lucky and we are so happy we chose Deerhurst Resort to host our wedding.

Spectacular venue with caring and attentive staff

My husband, myself, and all our guests could not have been more pleased with Deerhurst Resort.
Haley, our wedding planner, was courteous, knowledgeable, kind, attentive, quick to respond, and incredibly patient.
She let our vision come to fruition and we had the perfect day.
The wait staff were friendly and professional and the food was unreal!
Deerhurst is elegant, picturesque, and incredibly romantic. It鈥檚 the perfect location for a wedding.

A wonderful wedding venue

We got married at Deerhurst resort in late October and everything went off without a hitch. We had an entire weekend of activities - bonfire, ceremony, wedding, and brunch. The value for investment was excellent and actually surprising. The food was fantastic and many who attended commented on how great it was. We had a plated meal with a chicken, pork, and vegan option and the meat was cooked to perfection. The venue rooms were beautiful and clean and we had ample time to set up. Most of all, I gained a sixth bridesmaid in Haley Mumby, the wedding coordinator. What a superhero she was. She was nothing but supportive, responsive, and helpful in the months leading up to the wedding. Never made me feel silly for any questions and was flexible in my requests. She hosted the ceremony rehearsal, made sure everything ran smoothly on the wedding day, and even ensured my wedding paperwork was sent to my room. It was a beautiful weekend at a beautiful place with fantastic staff. Thank you, Deerhurst!

We loved our wedding at Deerhurst! It is a stunning venue with so many places for everything, ceremony locations, halls for receptions, photo opportunities everywhere no matter the style. Haley Mumby was the coordinator for us and she went above and beyond for our day, and leading up to; always responded to us and answered every question we had. With her, everything felt so easy and stress free. Our guests loved being able to stay right there, most of them made it a whole weekend trip, managing to fit in a round of golf! We had so many people reach out to tell us how great of a time they had and how much they loved the location! I would highly recommend this resort!

We had the best time!

Trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic was rough, but Haley was understanding and accommodating throughout. Our room was huge and the service was fantastic- on our wedding day I received multiple calls from the front desk making sure that we had everything we needed. Haley helped the day run very smoothly and it was honestly amazing. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received about our dinner- it was cooked to perfection! Thank you Haley and the rest of the Deerhurst team for making our day so special! We will definitely be returning and I know that our guests will be as well!

Overall great experience, but some issues

Overall, we were super happy with Deerhurst Resort and choosing to do our wedding weekend there.

We worked with Stephanie and she was absolutely great to work with, she definitely went above and beyond for us and we appreciate that so much. She's very good at responding to e-mails, and I really appreciate that they let you know when they're unavailable and busy with weddings. They are very flexible and open to new ideas & cultures and even offered us a different space for our ceremony because there was not enough space in our original space selection!

We do have a few negative points to highlight just so that people are aware and to hopefully improve the quality of service at Deerhurst.

1) One issue we had during our wedding was that we decided based on our guests that the best option for our bar service would be the "a la carte option (based on consumption)". Staff members we taking full drinks placed on tables and tossing them, one of our guests got upset with them and the staff member responded "don't worry, you're not paying for it". Unfortunately, this is really discouraging and unprofessional to hear.

2) We were told by Stephanie that our shuttle service for photos would be with us the whole time. There was a HUGE miscommunication and the shuttle service would leave and tell us we had to call for it to come back - this lost time, and sometimes we couldn't even get through to them by phone and I (the bride in heels) had to walk back to resort to ensure I was on time for our ceremony.

3) My bridal bouquet was lost and nobody had any idea where it went. This was discouraging as I thought that all the florals would've been stored in the reception room until clean up the next morning. I had wanted to preserve it, so I recommend really discussing these items with Stephanie so that you don't experience the same thing as me.

4) Originally, our wedding planner was under the assumption that Stephanie would be helping her during the day but apparently she was in meetings all day and did not discuss this with our planner.

5) Our ceremony was delayed because guests from the resort were late getting to the ceremony space. I believe this is because there were not enough shuttles available. We did warn the staff there that many people would be showing up "last minute" (e.g., 10 minutes before start time) and kind of expected there to be more than 2 shuttles available for our large (135 people) guest count.

I do not write these items in vain, overall we're very happy with choosing to do our wedding at Deerhurst and working with Stephanie. I just wanted to write these things to ensure that the quality of service the resort provides is better and that nobody else experiences the same things that we did.

We had a fantastic wedding, and weekend at Deerhurst and would recommend doing your wedding there. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful space and day.
