Dreamy Wedding in NOTL

We had our wedding this past July 2022 and I can’t thank the team at The Gate House enough for our amazing wedding. Our wedding was around 73 people, which was perfect for the space & us to socialize with our guests. What makes the gate house unique as a venue is the ability to have indoor/outdoor setting as well as the updated victorian chic decor as an elevated experience. From start to finish of our day, the staff made us feel comfortable and our guests feel like they were in a fairy tale. What first made us pick the gate house was the food/menus option as well as beverage choices and flexibility in the offerings. Another added bonus is the inclusion of a coordinator at the venue. Our guests gave feedback that the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding (Wow! what a compliment) and with the setting of beautiful Niagara on the Lake complimented everyone experience. Lastly, what makes this venue space special is that you can easily take your photos around the venue/ side streets and for guests is that its very walkable from hotels, for those who come from out of town. Thank you Erin, Nicole & Team. We can’t thank you enough and can't wait to go back to tread well for our anniversary.

Wedding Ceremony and Reception

Everything was amazing. The team was easy to work with and always did their best to accommodate our needs and wants. The space looked beautiful and the team took care of everything (even when we had a delay). The food and drink is delicious. Having the hotel rooms above and at 124 were great. Our guests loved being able to tour and be so close to the venue.

The Wedding of Our Dreams

Thank you to the staff at the Gate House and a big shout out to Erin and Nichole our wedding coordinators. They really know how to take care of you here, we had so many questions and they were so so kind and left us feeling so calm and excited for our big day after every conversation. They set up and took down our decorations so we didn't have to worry about a thing! Nichole kept checking in on us throughout our wedding day and really made us feel so special. The venue was perfect, our guests danced the entire evening away! With the large windows on the building we would dance to people passing by and they would dance and point back at us. Our guests would take a break from dancing and sit outside but said how they loved feeling that they were still included as you could see the dance floor. Aside from the spectacular venue, phenominal service, fantastic customer service, the wonderful atmosphere and care the staff put into the wedding, the food was out of this world!!! I had so many guests rave about how wonderful the food was, so so delicious!! We wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much - Evie & Cody

The perfect day!

Can’t thank the team at 124 Q and the gate house enough for pulling off this perfect day. The day of coordinator Caitlyn was very attentive and quick to respond! So grateful!

Fabulous Weekend!

We truly loved our wedding at The Gate House! It was a perfect day at a stunningly beautiful venue. Exceptional service the day of from the servers and bartenders; our guests were so happy and the food/drink was spectacular.

We also hosted a welcome reception at 124 Queen the night before. Caitlyn was instrumental in helping us that night, staying late and helping us make sure everything was perfect. We simply could not have done it without her and are so thankful. The bartenders and wait staff were fantastic this night as well. We loved the newly opened Lobby Bar!

We rented the 2 bedroom villa for myself and my bridesmaids to get ready in, and there was a ton of space so no one was on top of each other! Having the guest rooms above the event space was so convenient too- our guests even stayed at other places in NOTL and it was a short walk home for everyone after the wedding which was fantastic (no need for transportation costs).

We are so thankful for Caitlyn and her team in helping us prepare for and execute the best day ever. Have your wedding here and you will not regret it! Thanks again Gate House and Treadwell! We can't wait to come back again as hotel guests.

All our love! J&B

Look no further for a Niagara wedding!

Where do we even begin with The Gate House?! Erin and Nicole are the best in the business. They held our hands from the very start and did not disappoint even a little. They made this stressful experience seem easy and thought of absolutely everything. They were provided with a vision and knocked it out of the park.
The Gate House as a venue speaks for itself. From the newly finished ceremony space, to the patio for cocktail hour and the beautiful elegant reception area this venue requires minimal decoration or work. This was the first venue we visited and it was not a close competition from there. The glass windows and timeless features provided something in our opinion that was unmatched. The food was 12/10, we have never seen or heard so many people compliment food at a wedding, it was served hot and cooked to perfection. There was never a line at the bar as the staff was top notch.
I could go on all day at everything they did right. If you are looking to have a wedding in the Niagara Region that is classy, intimate and perfect in every way then you need to look at The Gate House.

Wedding Venue of Our Dreams

We cannot begin to explain how incredible our wedding experience was at the Gatehouse. The venue is located in the heart of Niagara on the Lake, it has old-world charm with a modern interior that was a perfect base to decorate & create the wedding of our dreams. Erin, Amanda, and the Q124 team were communicative, flexible, and incredibly generous throughout the process and made the task of wedding planning during the pandemic seamless. We are self-proclaimed food and wine lovers, and having high-quality options on our wedding day was paramount. And boy did Treadwell deliver! Our guests haven't stopped talking about how amazing the meal was, and those of us with dietary restrictions and preferences were blown away by the attention and care the team put into ensuring those needs were met. The day-of team took care of all the logistical needs and Erin communicated with our other vendors prior to the wedding day to ensure everything was taken care of. Most importantly the team made us and our guests feel comfortable, important, and celebrated. We highly recommend working with the GateHouse if you're looking for a beautiful and intimate venue that comes with an incredible team and high-end restaurant-quality food & wine. Our wedding day exceeded all expectations and in large part that was thanks to the GateHouse team.

Dale and Cathy's Wedding

Erin and her team were absolutely amazing. They handled the details of our sane sex wedding flawlessly. Erin was very helpful in the planning stages. The day of the event went off without a hitch. Erin was very calming and comforting when we got a little nervous just moments before the ceremony was to start.
We and all of our lesbian guests felt very safe and welcomed by all of the staff.
It was the best day of our lives and everything was perfect. It's a little pricey but worth every penny as the attention to detail from the ceremony to end of evening is tended to. The food was absolutely delicious perfectly prepared and elegantly presented
This is a great venue for any event however would highly recommend it for any LGBTQ2IA× event.

Beautifully Amazing

We had the most amazing experience with The Gate House. As nobody would have expected Covid-19, the venue was so amazing in helping us move our wedding date with no issues. The venue itself is so beautiful and provides such a perfect atmosphere for your special day, beautiful windows line the front of the venue, and the gold accents throughout are stunning. Erin and the staff at The Gate House were so kind, professional, and helped make our night absolutely perfect. We highly recommend The Gate House for your most magical night!

If you’re a foodie, this needs to be your venue

I can’t thank the team at The Gate House enough for pulling off an amazing wedding during COVID. We were one of the few couples that had a small enough group to pull this off, and with everything, the staff and crew made us feel so comfortable and right at home. Not to mention the food. It’s actually one of the main reasons we chose this venue because it’s catered by the amazing team at Treadwell. My guests are still talking about the food, and we’re semi debating an anniversary dinner again here with our family and close friends. We both have HIGH standards for food and service and this team COMPLETELY delivered. It was a magical day, made better with Erin and the team. We can’t thank you enough.
