Sad to say what could've been, wasn't close to perfect
We planned with the venue coordinator at The Stone Mill Ballroom for the last 14 months; every minor detail to ensure that both them and us were on the same page with everything. Unfortunately we had to get to our wedding reception, and during our meal to see things unravel. And not in the positive way. The food for the most part was good. Finding out the night of our wedding (not in the last 14 months of meeting) that our guests couldn't order shots to celebrate until after 9 PM was ridiculous. (Arent all bartending smart served if there is a concern with guests?-- we had also mentioned prior to the night that if this was an issue at the reception. That we would take care of it, but didnt expect there to be one with our guests) The only excuse we received was "it's part if our policy" finding this out prior to the day would've been favourable. On our wedding night? And by guests of our reception none the less, very unprofessional. We could've made an announcement so guests were prepared and not embarrassed at the bar when ordering a celebratory drink. Other minor details were botched even after we told the banquet manager to correct the issue, he still went on as though the detail didnt bother him, but was something that saddened us. After saving for and investing in this venue for our special night, we did not feel like the guests of honour. For our guests to mention something that we had previously set up during our meetings was a let down. Things as simple as having the bread loaves served sliced and not whole (as our contract stated) The coordinator we had worked with for 14 months left the night early! This we were shocked about. Having worked in banquet services bf, the manager always stayed until the end to ensure everything was perfect for the couple. The owner Tony, when we did meet with him, was amazing, friendly, kind, and willing to please and take care of whatever we needed throughout the planning. We look back and would've like to have dealt with him as the banquet manager/coordinator. When we look back at our wedding reception, there were goods, but unfortunately to say, we can't say it went without glitches.
Stone Mill Ballroom's reply:
Amanda & Mathew,
We are saddened to hear that you felt we fell short of delivering a perfect day. Unfortunately, the shots rule is our policy and we do not serve shots until after dessert course is served. Moving forward we will ensure this is brought up to each of our clients.
As the Sales Manager, I do stay until dinner has been served and then our banquet manager completes the evening. On your wedding night, I was actually present until 11:00 pm, as I waited to ensure your Late Night Table was ready for you.
The bread was served as requested, the way the restaurant serves their bread. It is our home loaf, which is brought to the table unsliced, on a bread board, with a knife and tapenade. When brought to the banquet managers attention, we offered to fix the problem by slicing the bread for each table. We apologize for the miscommunication on this detail.
Congratulations Again and Best Wishes.
Sales and Event Manager

We just got married last weekend at the beautiful Stone Mill. Tony & Ashley were awesome to work with and always took the time to ensure that the day went perfectly. Their professionalism and knowledge about the wedding industry was top notch. The food was excellent and my guests are still talking about how fun our wedding was. Thank you for making my vision a reality!!

Perfect venue, amazing service
We were married over the May long weekend in the Stone Mill ballroom. To say the venue was perfect would be an understatement. Ashely and the Stone Mill team are accommodating and very easy to work with. The ballroom is beautiful and the staff made it very easy for us to plan not only our wedding, but our rehersal dinner and day after brunch all in the same location over the course of the weekend. Ashely is also extremely knowledgeable about vendors in the area and was able to put us into contact with a decorator and florist that knew the venue well. We would 100% recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in the Niagara region!

The team at the Stone Mill Ballroom went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we dreamt of. From the first day we met their event planner, Ashley, we were very comfortable having our wedding at the venue. All of our questions were answered in a timely fashion. Tony was fantastic to deal with when we were sorting out dietary restrictions for some of our guests. We even heard feedback from guests that the special meals (gluten free, vegan, etc.) they received were amazing. Tony met with us a week before the wedding and we sorted out all the final details. We had no concerns about the venue or food leading up to our special day.
On the day of the wedding, Tony and his team were always available and on time for each part of the day. During dinner, the courses were timed perfectly. At the end of the evening, the team packed everything up and even set aside items that people had accidentally left behind (jackets, phones) so that they could easily find them. Many of our guests stayed at the Stone Mill Inn and we heard nothing but positive feedback about the rooms.
We had our rehearsal dinner in one of the private rooms and it was fantastic. The perfect size for the number of people we had and the food was amazing.
We looked at 5 venues and the package we received from the Stone Mill Ballroom was the best value. We’ve heard stories about couples at other venues getting surprised with hidden fees but everything with this venue is very transparent and you get exactly what you sign up for.
Thank you to Tony and the entire team for making our day such an incredible experience.
Stone Mill Ballroom's reply:
Thank you so much for your kind words Kathleen! It was an honour to be a part of yours and Kieran's special day. We take great pride in presenting a meal and experience that we would want our very OWN family to have as well. I am so pleased that you and your loved ones enjoyed the day! We at The Stone Mill Ballroom wish you both many, many years of happiness ahead!
