    A venue with style that is also well-organized!

    We had an excellent experience having our wedding at The Spice Factory. We initially chose this venue because we loved its style, and things like nice chairs, tables, linens, ceremony arbor, and a day-of coordinator were included - lots of items we could immediately check off our list. But they ended up exceeding our expectations. They were always responsive, even when we sent questions far in advance of our wedding, and even given that there was a bit of staff turnover.

    Once we got close to the 3-month mark, Natasha was on it! She was so organized and helpful, and she made me more organized. She promptly scheduled our 3-month and 1-month meetings, and she was accommodating to our schedules and had no problems with scheduling them beyond work hours, which was so helpful to us as we are very busy and had to drive from Toronto each time.

    On the days of our rehearsal dinner and wedding, the team really went above and beyond. Natasha even steamed my dress for me and worked with the staff to move our ceremony arbor for use during our reception.

    I will also say that their preferred vendor list was a life saver for me. We were very happy with the photographer, officiant, florals, and cake/dessert vendors that we got from their list - it's clear that Spice Factory has high standards.

    Thank you Spice Factory -- highly recommended!

    My dream venue

    I could not have been happier with the Spice Factory. I knew I wanted to get married there even before I met my now husband. They completely fulfilled all of our expectations and ALWAYS went above and beyond. They answered all of our questions in a professional matter and we knew exactly what we were getting/paying for. No hidden costs or surprises. Our guests loved the venue and its uniqueness so much!

    We found the Spice Factory before planning our wedding by chance, and kept returning to it when making choices on venue for our wedding. We loved the look of the old building and the updates made. We actually booked the venue without seeing it from out of province and had no regrets with our choice. Alex worked with our wedding planner and made the entire process easy. The venue staff were exceptional including bartending, helping with tear down, and allowing us to have our rehearsal on site. The bridal suite is also a lovely room and we enjoyed the ease of getting ready on site. We would very highly reccomend The Spice Factory for your wedding or other event.

    Unique venue & awesome staff

    The staff at Spice Factory were fantastic! From first looking at the venue to the planning process and day of - I was incredibly impressed with their flexibility and service. We made last minute changes the morning of the wedding to have the ceremony indoors and they were wonderful at accommodating. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue and staff at Spice Factory!
