    The most magical place to say I do!

    The Heintzman House is an exquisite venue tucked away in a quaint suburb of Thornhill. It's rich history from the 1800's is as enchanting as the house itself. My husband and I could not have asked nor wanted for a more stunning setting to proclaim and celebrate our love. The colonial style grounds and the elegant vintage interior are classically beautiful and offer a variety of gorgeous backdrops for many a romantic and glamorous shot that will make for stunning keepsakes which will last a lifetime. I never felt more like a Queen with her King than when at this venue. It made our special day all the more magical. The house was perfect and spacious enough for our intimate wedding of 80 guests. The bridal suite is lovely, comfortable and has nice views of the grounds and the solarium below, the space for the bar is good, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the price for the rental cannot be beat!!

    Intimate and beautiful venue

    Loved the rooms and the intimate feel of the largest room we used for the ceremony. We had amazing sunlight streaming through the window for the morning. We were able to hold the rehearsal the night before and it was just as romantic. They had stringed lights along the arches, and it made it feel so romantic. Full sunlight or not, the hall was just as beautiful.

    We were so happy with this venue choice. It was perfect for our 110 ppl guest list. The house is beautiful and our guests kept commenting on how unique and great the venue was. Everything ran very smoothly thanks to Christine (venue manager) and her recommended caterer. The venue and their recommended vendors also had very competitive pricing so it was also somewhat more affordable than the average Toronto/GTA wedding. that was a plus!

    A wonderful place to host a vintage wedding!

    Christine is very friendly, professional, and accommodating, and we have nothing bad to say about the experience. If we were to do our wedding again we would definitely pick the Heintzman House!

    We held our wedding reception at Heintzman House in July 2014 and couldn't have been more happy with our venue choice. The charm and beauty of this venue is amazing. What also appealed to us about the Heintzman House was the fact that there was a large bridal suite with private bathroom and several sitting rooms that the guests could roam in and explore before or during the reception. Furthermore, the house had beautifully manicured grounds with lots of greenery and colourful flower beds so guests could enjoy getting some fresh air during the reception. Almost every other guest we spoke to made a comment about how great and unique this venue was so we knew people loved it. It was stunning for photos too...I wish we actually allotted more time for photos at the venue. We also really enjoyed dealing with Christine who runs the place. She was always extremely nice and very accommodating in letting us come over to try out decorations or drop off supplies. All in all, picking this reception venue was one of our best wedding planning decisions.
