    Perfect Wedding

    Elm Hurst Inn and Soa was the absolute perfect wedding venue, we really couldn’t have asked for a better location to host our special day. The building itself and the grounds are so beautiful but it is the service that really sets Elm Hurst apart. We had a very long process with this wedding, with not one but two postponements due to COVID and the staff at Elm Hurst was nothing but kind a supportive throughout the process. This really made a stressful time so much more manageable. Lesley and Sergio were both so excellent in their roles coordinating the wedding. The food at Elm Hurst is also fantastic. Many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we definitely owe that to Elm Hurst! Thank you!

    The best wedding venue!

    The team at Elm Hurst were absolutely incredible and made us feel so special from beginning to end! Honestly if you need a sign to choose Elm Hurst for your wedding venue, this is it!! Lesley was our wedding coordinator and made everything run so smoothly. We had to postpone a and she was super helpful in finding us an alternate date. She always responded promptly and was eager to answer all of our questions. We sat down with both Lesley & Sergio (banquet manager) 2 days prior to go over absolutely everything (which soothed my type A brain lol) and we left feeling like we had nothing to worry about which was absolutely correct! On the day of the wedding, we felt spoilt from the staff at Elm Hurst who always made sure to keep us fed and hydrated and we even ended the night with a surprise gift in our hotel room from Lesley which was so sweet! Highly recommend!!

    Wedding dreams come true

    As so many have said before me, the Elm Hurst truly is one of the best wedding venues in the entire province. My husband’s family used to go to the restaurant for Easter dinner every year, and the first year I joined them, I knew from the moment I saw the building that this was where I wanted to get married. The old rustic house, the incredible grounds, the sense of class that’s baked into every experience there is just unbeatable. When we got engaged, we contacted the Elm Hurst right away and set up a time to book a viewing. We booked a date for a year and a half out and signed the paperwork that day. When the pandemic caused us to have to delay our wedding by an entire year, Erin and the team were so accommodating and understanding. They worked with us to find a new date and honoured the same price we’d signed onto. We kept in good communication with them leading up to the day; Lesley, our wedding coordinator, took so much time and care into making sure the day was planned as best we could, even with provincial health restrictions making things so unsure. Day-of was as perfect as it could possibly be. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful the venue was, and the excellent service. Even a month after our wedding people will not stop talking to us about how incredible the food tasted, and how large the portion sizes were. Lesley was there the whole time to ensure things were running smoothly, and the rest of the staff was incredibly supportive and helpful as well. It really felt like a dream come true getting to celebrate our wedding there, and I couldn’t possibly recommend it highly enough. Five stars is not enough stars!! Thank you to the entire crew at the Elmhurst for such a perfect day.

    Amazing and beautiful venue

    Every aspect of the venue from the bridal suite to the grand ballroom room was beautiful. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was was complimented by everyone. Breakfast included for guests that stay and made it all the more special delivering it to your room on your wedding day. Many good backdrops and opportunities for photos. Only thing is when planning and calling the main lobby desk it is very hard to get ahold of someone.

    A perfect venue!

    My wedding day at The Elm Hurst was the best and easiest day of my life! The staff and especially wedding coordinator were so on top of everything that I had nothing to stress about. The meal was likely the best meal I've ever had and all our guests said the exact same thing. All the serving staff were so friendly and helpful, everyone felt like a priority. I cannot recommend this venue more!

    Fantastic value and so beautiful!

    Chantal and Erin, the two wonderful people in charge of events at the Elm Hurst, made the process so easy. they responded so quickly to any questions, even the silly ones.
    The venue was absolutely beautiful, and all the staff are SO dedicated to making your day go smoothly, including working as semi-wedding planners so they know exactly what you want the day to look like.
    We had Phillip with us all day, and he even brought us wine while we were getting our wedding pictures done!
    Absolutely beautiful here, and amazing staff. Would definitely recommend if you're considering them.

    Sept 18th Wedding

    Such a beautiful spot to have a wedding! Erin and Chantal were wonderful to work with through the entire process! They were so accomodating with everything due to Covid-19 and ensured we had the best day. We had a mishap with one of our vendor but Chantal swooped in and saved the day! The entire staff was professional and courteous. We had Meghan as our designated server and Sabrina as bartender. Both ladies did a wonderful job and made sure we had everything we needed through the day. Thank you guys so much! We couldn’t have chosen a better venue!

    Unforgettable wedding at Elm Hurst Inn and Spa

    We had our wedding at Elm Hurst Inn and it was incredible!! If you are looking for an all-inclusive wedding venue, look no further. Elm Hurst has packages with food, drinks, tables, chairs, linens, etc. all included which made it so easy for us to plan. The venue itself was so beautiful that we had hardly any decor for the ceremony and reception. All of our guests commented about how beautiful the grounds were for strolling around and taking photos. The food was incredibly delicious and the bartender was so good at mixing drinks that at one point all the guests had the same cocktail because he made it so well :)

    We had to move our wedding date due to the COVID shut down and the Elm Hurst staff were extremely accommodating. They worked with us and our vendors to find a new date and moved us into a larger room to facilitate social distancing. Erin and Chantal responded to our e-mails very quickly and answered all of our numerous questions before our big day. On the wedding day, we had our very own server who would find us to give us food and drinks, which was amazing because we were so busy and didn't have time to sit and eat before dinner. In general, the whole day the staff made us feel like royalty!

    Overall, we had an unforgettable experience at Elm Hurst and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

    Perfect day

    We had so many upsets just before the wedding, with my sister being diagnosed with cancer and not being able to attend, family squabbles and a bank account fraud the day before the wedding that we were sure that the entire wedding would be a disaster. To the contrary, Chantal and her team made our day run so smoothly and perfect. Absolutely no worries, they were on top of everything! Perfect job and the most perfect day!! Thank you!
