Wonderful autumn wedding at beautiful Hockley Valley
My husband and I were married in October 2019 at Hockley Valley Resort in Restaurant 85. It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end working with Hockley and hosting our wedding there. We had the pleasure of working with Kendra, Catering Sales & Event Manager. Kendra was with us every step of the way from our first meeting to seeing us both down the aisle! She made it so easy and ensured we were well informed of the process, knew when and how to make the best decisions for our special day. And answered every one of my one million questions!
What I loved most about Hockley, was that we were able to make our wedding our own. We could customize where we wanted to and ensure this day was about us! We created a fantastic menu (which is still being talked about) paired with wine from their local winery. The staff were all amazing and super accommodating to us. Not to mention the breathtaking views and picture opportunities!
I am so happy we celebrated our marriage at Hockley Valley Resort, it was exactly how to envisioned our special day. We cannot wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary!

We booked about a year before our date after visiting twice and asking a million questions. We dealt with Eric and he was super nice, friendly, and flexible. A couple months before the wedding we emailed him trying to book our first planning meeting as we were told we would hear from him or Kendra, but heard from no one. We got an automatic reply that Eric was no longer with the company and to reach out to Kendra. It took a little longer for her to reply than we would have liked, but it worked out. Kendra was super friendly and helpful as well and we were in good hands with her.
We were disappointed to find out they do not provide tastings and at no point was this brought to our attention. Even after mentioning that we would like to bring our parents to our tasting! We had dinner at The Cabin one night to try the food and felt reassured that the food would be great and it was! Our guests raved about the whole meal and the food at our rehearsal dinner was AMAZING. My in laws booked the private dining room off of Restaurant 85 (where our reception was) and ordered the Italian dinner. There was so much food and it was so good! They were completely amazing about dietary restrictions and even made my sister in law a last minute dinner during the reception when she announced she couldn't have dairy (we were unaware up til this point). The bartenders were amazing and had everyone's preferred drinks memorized right away which was pretty cool haha We loved having the lounge area by the bar because guests who didn't want to dance still felt part of the party.
I had made bathroom baskets that got picked apart by the time cocktail hour started because random people who were not our guests were using the bathrooms. When we mentioned this to our coordinator she shrugged and said yeah, that happens. We were a little disappointed by that and wish Hockley would have monitored that as a random guy came out of the bathrooms and stood directly infront of us while our DJ was trying to introduce us into our reception *face palm*
Our room block was for 13 rooms and we were able to extend that as people booked but by the time our guests started booking the hotel was already full outside of our block. Our guests were booking 5 months in advance! So heads up on that for guests. We didn't end up needing more rooms so it all worked out.
We hired a coordinator from their preferred vendors list and she was wonderful! (Elegant Professionals). I definitely recommend a coordinator to set up the spaces as we weren't allowed into the ceremony space (Montclair Patio) until only an hour before the ceremony. We were allowed into the reception space (Restaurant 85) a little earlier than that, but we definitely would have been stressed setting to up ourselves with that timing.
We asked about taking photos up on the ski hills as it was fall and the colours were really nice. We were allowed up there through an access road and those are our favorite photos! Highly recommend this if you can manage the timing!
All in all it was a great day and our guests had a blast!Sent on 24/11/2019

Hockley Valley Resort provided the perfect backdrop for my wedding. The venue itself is gorgeously decorated and I had to do very little to make my space aesthetic. The food was unbelievable. The staff goes above and beyond to help provide the best service. And Kendra made the whole planning experience easy and was very prompt in replying to emails. She always had a smile and was so warm and friendly. I couldn't have asked for better.Sent on 30/09/2019

Our Wedding was perfect!
We upgraded our dinners to Prime Rib, and let me tell you, we were stunned by the portion sizes we received! Everyone left our wedding with a belly FULL of delicious food, and they still rave to us about how delicious the whole meal was.
The venue was a perfect fit for our style, and the Restaurant 85 Manager was excellent at working with us and being proactive to avoid any delays or issues on the day of our event.
We would definitely go back for a delicious meal from time to time!Sent on 11/01/2020
Hockley Valley Resort's reply:Thank you so much - we're thrilled to have been a part of your special day! Looking forward to welcoming you back for a visit.

Hockley valley was an incredible vender to work with, from our first contact to look at the venue and finalize everything up until our day of coordinator was introduced to us we had great communication with everyone. They helped us out with everything right down to the smallest detail and were very helpful in keeping my nerves down when it came to making sure everything was set up and ready to go. They had great rates for the room and the hotel rooms that were set aside for our guests were also at a reasonable cost as well! We recommend using them as your venue! 5 stars across the board!Sent on 11/10/2019

We had our wedding at Adamo, the vineyard of Hockley valley, in September of this year. They have just started to do weddings, but the whole experience was absolutely amazing. The food was wonderful and the scenery couldn't have been more beautiful. The staff at Adamo made myself and my husband feel so at ease, and were professional throughout the whole experience. It was really the best day and I wish we could do it again.Sent on 28/09/2018

We rented the Montclair Patio for our ceremony and Restaurant 85 for our wedding reception. Hockley Valley Resort is a phenomenal venue and really impressed us and our guests. It is classy, clean, well maintained, respectful, and absolutely breath-taking. The food and wine were so outstanding that our guests were calling us weeks after the wedding to know where to purchase the wine served that night! Again, I cant express how gorgeous the property is overall. My wife and i frequently visited Hockley during our 2 year engagement for their food and passionate service during winter, Canada 150, anniversary, and even for spontaneous date nights. We also even had a 15-person family reunion in one of their other restaurants called The Cabin and that left quite the impression for our guests! We had 50% of our guests stay at the venue for our wedding and everyone loved how classy it is. The bride and groom suite is amazing for its well known and beautiful spiral stairs. We thank all of you at Hockley especially Tony for staying on top of the whole organization of our wedding! Ten out of ten, highly recommended!Sent on 01/10/2018

When I first visited hockley I fell in love. It is so beautiful and situated in such a beautiful area. It really adds that rustic look already that you don’t have to add too much decor. We had the Montclair ballroom and was a little scared of the price at first. I can promise you that you get what you pay for and beyond. Our wedding was beyond perfect and couldn’t have asked for or changed anything. We had the pleasure of working with Lindsey and Tony. Tony was amazing. He made sure everything we wanted, happened. He made sure our GF guests were accommodated and was even there the night of the wedding to help and make sure all of our guests were okay. The food was BEYOND amazing and I highly recommend the poutine bar late night station. I can’t thank hockley enough for our big day, I’ll never forget it!Sent on 20/11/2017

The venue was amazing! They had a fixed menu for things but were open to making changes. We had the Italian Spirit rehearsal dinner and it was AMAZING! We used the Aid ballroom for both ceremony and receiption.Sent on 02/11/2017
For our wedding, we had the goat cheese and cranberry salad, chicken and beef, and a cheese and spinach manicotti for vegetarians, everyone said the food was amazing! I loved every bite of it.
I worked with Lindsay and Tony mostly. Tony was off the week before our wedding and I had to follow up myself, no one contacted me. Besides that hiccup, everything was well organized and the staff were super friendly!
We stayed in one of the Executive suites (with the black staircase) and the photos are beautiful!
I'd recommend this place for someone who is OK with spending a bit more money but getting very high quality service and food. I feel like it was worth every penny!

My Daughter chose the Hockley Valley Resort for their Wedding. It’s not only a stunning location but the food was phenomenal! We worked with Tony and can’t say enough good about this man...he really knows what he’s doing and has an awesome team. My Daughter and I did our own decor and cake and we needed to have time to setup early. That morning Gwen was in charge of the room setup...she is amazing to work with, I told her our plan and she executed it spot on! Everything was beautiful. All our guests commented on the service, presentation and how delicious the or’deurves, salad, entrée and desserts were. We couldn’t be happier with everything!! All the employees we met from the Front Desk to the Servers and even the Room Attendants were very courteous and professional. They all looked like they enjoyed working there even though they worked hard at what they did. The day was perfect...exactly what our Daughter had always dreamed about! Our guests enjoyed amazing food with impeccable service in a stunning atmosphere!Sent on 13/06/2017
*The Adamo wines that we chose were excellent!!
We also dined at the Cabin the night before....the food and wine was excellent and we had an awesome time!!
