    Palais Royale was a Dream Come True

    I really can't say enough good stuff about Palais Royale. They made all our wedding dreams come true in a way only professionals can. At the center of all that was incredible was their amazing coordinator Jocilea who made everything SO easy and comfortable for us, we worked with her for over two years before our wedding day to make everything a dream come true. Right down to the day of, she was professional, warm, and just an overall wonderful person and I'd say we've actually become friends. This venue, which holds decades of history, has wedding science perfected. Every staff member was attentive and went out of their way to make our day perfect, including Chef Stefan who fed our guests what some described as the best wedding food they'd ever had. He even put aspects of our family's cultures into the dishes for a special touch. Katy and Mary who also work at the venue were wonderful as well, helping me calm my nerves the day of while running around to put everything in its place. I really could go on all day about what a fantastic group Palais Royale is. I am so so so glad we got to work with them for our wedding!

    Fairytale Wedding

    Our wedding at Palais Royale was absolute perfection. We still get compliments a year later.
    We held both our ceremony and reception at Palais Royale, and we are thankful that we did. Having the entire venue to ourselves made it feel more personal and intimate. It made it simple for our guests to arrive and enjoy the entire event worry-free.

    We had the pleasure of working with Robert as our wedding coordinator throughout the planning and our coordinator the day of the wedding. I can't express how much easier it was with him there on the day. My husband and I were both blown away that we kept to schedule and everything was perfect; no mishaps, no missed cues, no rushing. It allowed us to enjoy the day stress-free and live in the moment.

    A special thank you to Chef Steffan; the menu was impeccable, and our guests are still raving about the food and the beautiful presentation. When it came to picking a venue, food was our number one priority and Chef Steffan sat down with us and was very flexible in accommodating our requests.

    The entire staff was flexible and patient with our personal and cultural requests, and last-minute changes. We truly appreciate the staff constantly going the extra mile to give us our fairytale wedding!

    Amazing location , right by the water. With a great view of the Toronto skyline. The coordinators here are quick and timely. Dora was ours. She was pleasant, friendly and very helpful. At one point we didn't have a planner and she really stepped up to the plate! The staff was great and the food was incredible!!!! We're still getting compliments on the food in conversations! They really catered to all our menu wants and needs. We couldn't have picked a better, more affordable venue. It really transforms once decorated! The bridal suite was a great plus too!

    Venue , Event Coordinator, Catering , AV/Sound & Lights, All Day Bridal Suite etc.. all included! What more can you ask for. The just leaves a planner and decor for the big things!

    Palais Royale is a gorgeous venue to get married in. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. The Palais Royale staff was extremely professional and provided an incredible service. We've had countless compliments on our choice of venue. There is nothing negative to say about Palais Royale, it is fabulous.

    Beyond amazing

    I could not have asked for a better place, atmosphere, and team to host our wedding.
    To start, the physical building is stunning, intimate (yet can hold 250 people comfortably), makes you feel like there’s no bad seat in the house, and the lakefront patio makes you feel like you’re on a beach vacation.
    The actual venue and offerings are amazing. Everyone loved the food, countless compliments on the drinks (esp speciality martinis, daquiris, etc).
    Last but not least the team working there felt like they were part of the family (especially Robert and robin!!) were responsive, insightful, and helped personalize everything. I also appreciated how organized and transparent (especially about costs) everyone was from the start.

    We could not have asked for a better venue and I hope my friends and family get married there in the future so I can keep going back!
