    A dream come true!

    We initially booked our wedding in January 2020, and boy did we not know at the time the ride we were about to take. The team at Elora Mill, especially Raylene, worked with us for 2 years (during ever-changing COVID restrictions!) to make our dream wedding a reality. The staff at Elora Mill answered every question I had in advance of the wedding. Timely and professional staff. On the day of our wedding, Ethan and Abeer and many others, ensured our wedding ran smoothly. The food was excellent, our guests left ecstatic with so many new memories, and I cannot thank the Elora Mill staff enough. Our dream became a reality. Thank you. - Andrea & Michael

    Elora Mill Hotel & Spa's reply:

    The Perfect Venue

    The Elora Mill is everything you could dream of for your wedding day. Every single room, corner, walkway and building are picture perfect. The service is exceptional, they cater to the needs of every guest, and they truly ensure, as a bride and groom, that you do not have one single thing to worry about on your big day. Larissa and her team were fantastic- they made sure everything went smoothly and didn't let us think about anything other then enjoying the day and being with our guests.
    We were lucky enough to work with Kayla as our Event Consultant, and to say she was amazing is not giving her enough credit. She dealt with our postponements, our elopement just the two of us, and then our big event with all of ours guests. Even through all of that stress she made it easy and kept us calm. She had a quick and thorough answer to every question, went out of her way to make every wish we had come true, and was sweet and compassionate through it all.
    We had an amazing experience at the Elora Mill. Stay at the Hotel, go to the spa, enjoy the outdoor heated pool- there is so much to offer. I would suggest this venue 10 out of 10 times.

    Fairytale Venue

    This venue is truly a dream. The location and decor, the staff, the food, the atmosphere - everything is absolutely perfect, and really manages to grasp a true fairytale vibe.
    We unfortunately had been forced to have multiple postponements due to the pandemic - Raylene worked patiently with us and was very supportive and kind through the difficult process. She showed genuine disappointment for us whenever we were faced with another postponement, and really treated us with compassion. She answered every email, every question, every moment of panic in a timely matter and was always there to help. She is very knowledgeable and professional. We we're provided with a day of coordinator, Larissa - having her by my side basically the entire day, making sure every little thing is going as planned, helping with anything I need or forgot - really just making sure the day went smooth. This was an incredible service, and she truly went above for us. We have two kids, which were both in our care during the wedding so many things kept getting forgotten - Larissa was there in a second to help. I don't think I actually even realized until the day of how helpful and essential it is to have a coordinator. I highly recommend staying at the hotel - we checked in the night before our wedding and stayed 2 nights. This little touch of staying on premises definitely added to the fairytale vibe - it truly felt like a Christmas movie. They really made us feel like the only couple that has ever been married there, and so special and important. The food was absolutely incredible - we have some fairly picky eaters in our family, and even they said the food was to die for. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The reception building is so beautifully decorated, that you hardly need much, if any additional decor. High ceilings, beautiful sparkly chandeliers, gorgeous chairs and linens. Ah, it was just a dream. I wish I could relive the day over and over. In the end, I am so glad we waited and had the wedding we dreamed of. I highly recommend both Elora Mill and the Pearle team. This is the best of the best - nothing compares to this location! I can't wait to celebrate our anniversary year after year here!

    The best of the best

    The whole team at Elora Mill was an absolute dream to work with. Our consultant Kayla was on top of every move and our whole wedding came together perfectly (even during a pandemic). We cannot thank the whole team enough for literally pulling together the most perfect day. The food was incredible, the staff is super helpful and the venue speaks for itself. I know we will be back to celebrate soon!

    Elora Mill Hotel & Spa's reply:

    Congratulations again! Thank you for the kind words Celia. We will be sure to send this to our whole team. We are so happy that you chose Elora Mill to be a part of this beautiful celebration. We look forward to being a part of your future special occasions in this new chapter!

    An absolute dream

    From the moment my husband and I visited Elora we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. In arrival for our tour the staff was so welcoming and helpful, answered all our question with ease and made the process so enjoyable. Raylene took us on a full tour of the space and the property which allowed for us to completely visualize our future wedding day and help plan how everything would come together. The rest of the planning process was a breeze the invoices were meticulous yet straight forward, they were able to change and add things at any time and the process was seamless. Raylene was an absolute dream to plan with as well she was able to answer emails in a timely manner and with so much knowledge and good advice about the day and our planning process, and questions I ever had were answered with a smile! All of the special events staff made our day go by without a hitch! We had a call with our maître d the night before and were able to share all our plans and ideas the night before all the stress and Larissa was able to keep the day running smoothly and efficiently. The reception was amazing, the food got so many complements and was absolutely delicious. Elora mill also provided an amazing backdrop for all our wedding photos! Elora mill was all around the best venue we could have ever asked for and made our wedding day an absolute dream. I would recommended Elora mill and pearle wedding to everybody I meet and especially everyone planning a wedding! Thank you Elora!

    Dream wedding during the pandemic

    We were able to have our dream wedding at the Elora Mill thanks to the amazing team there. Our consultant Kayla, was attentive, helpful and very accommodating. The food was exquisite; the venue spaces are stunningly beautiful and all the staff are so professional. All of our guests had an amazing time and even though our wedding expirenced some covid restrictions, it didn't impact how our wedding day felt and we owe the Elora Mill for that. 100% recommend!

    Fabulous Venue and Accommodating Team

    The team pulled together a truly unforgettable evening during Covid! Our wedding was everything we could have wished for and more. We appreciated how kind, attentive and accommodating the entire team was. The venue itself is stunning, the food was delicious and we loved the all-inclusive style that made planning relatively easy. We would highly recommend Pearle Events and the Elora Mill!

    Elora Mill

    We actually chose to work with the team at Elora Mill back in 2018, BEFORE construction was fully completed on the Granary. We fell in love with the natural beauty and elegance of the design, which fit perfectly with the vibe we wanted for our wedding. It was clear from our initial impressions and our prior experiences at some of the other Pearle Wedding and Events locations that we were in good hands!

    We worked with Raylene throughout our marathon wedding planning process over 3.5 years and cannot thank her enough for the continued patience and support throughout all the (seemingly endless) changes and postponements of our wedding. All while juggling the many challenges of COVID and government restrictions - it was truly impressive and thoroughly appreciated! In the end we split our ceremony and reception on two separate dates. Overall, her attention to detail leading up to and the day of our ceremony and reception was impeccable and noticed by not only us, but our parents and many guests as well. All of our guests commented on how BEAUTIFUL and ELEGANT the space is, how incredibly delicious the food was and how much FUN they had at our wedding. This was in no small part due to the many contributions and continued dedication of Raylene and the incredible team at Elora Mill!

    Our day-of coordinators, Larissa and Tyson were incredible and so very attentive to our needs during both wedding dates (ceremony and reception). The little personal touches were especially appreciated and really made it feel all that more like OUR special day. From playing our first dance song from our ceremony when we took photos at our reception in the Foundry (months later), to having the oh-so comfortable chairs for not only us, but also our parents and we even saw that Tyson wore pink and blue to compliment our wedding colours! Attention to detail was very special!

    Overall, we were supremely pleased with both our wedding day(s) - the ceremony and reception were everything we could have imagined and more and all thanks to the wonderful team at Elora Mill.

    The most beautiful venu and helpful staff!

    Elora Mill will take care of absolutely everything for you! From walking you around ot the best photo spots, a day-of coordinator/concierge, to reccomending vendors. Everything about them is professional and they all put so much work into making your day perfect! I would love to see them provide a room for takedown so it doesn't all need to be completed the night of, but thats a very small detail.
