    Turned Away

    We were interested in viewing the property for our wedding in 2023. However, we were told there was no pricing for 2023 (in June 2022). So they told us the current pricing, which we were fine with, knowing it would increase. Several emails to book a viewing with the coordinator, eventually someone responded only to say they were not doing any viewings of the property because they did not have the 2023 pricing yet. Very disappointing.

    A beautiful wedding at Paletta!

    We visited Paletta a couple of years ago for the first time and decided we would love to get married at this venue. Fast forward to Sept 2022 and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding/day. The view and the mansion are beautiful. Guests are still raving about it! We worked with Brittany throughout the planning process and she was great with communication, answering our questions and accommodating requests. Vendors were able to easily setup and Brittany was available if we needed. The catering staff was amazing day of and the food was amazing! The bartender was efficient and super friendly. They do give tours before the ceremony so something to keep in mind as you are getting ready and setting up.

    Customer service needs improvement

    If you’re a DIY bride, wedding at Paletta will be stressful. We had a micro wedding here with no coordinator, it was so frustrating on the day-of.
    I was told the timeline has been finalized when I had never given them our timeline. Basically they made their own and decided that it was final without confirming to me. I had to insist in the email to follow ours because we’ve prepared it carefully, and fortunately Paletta eventually said they will follow ours.
    We were charged for additional linens but no one told us that some of the linen choices they gave us had fees! They gave us a list of linens available at the venue for us to use but there were no labels of which was free and which had to be paid.
    Asked if drone flying was okay but we were told no and we could get our own permit from the city of Burlington. Which will take weeks.
    Day-of wedding:
    My sis-in-law, photographer, videographer arrived few mins before 12noon and asked if they could leave few equipment in the mansion while they survey the area but was rudely treated and was not allowed.
    We asked for wifi but was told only one device is allowed to connect because it will ‘interrupt’ their connection lol
    We were told weeks before that they dont have speakers at the venue so we had to buy/rent our own, but when we arrived at the venue, we saw two JBL speakers at the patio. Not sure why they couldnt let us borrow those when our dinner is at the patio.
    Agreed to have all set-up done by 3pm, so our Florist and decor person arrived at 1:30pm to start arranging but Paletta manager said team for tables and chairs set up will only arrive at 2:30pm. Florist and decorator had to improvise and find ways to do their work without the tables and chairs. Embarrassing!
    A new supervisor arrived around 3pm and she was so much nicer than the two persons I exchanged emails with and with us on the day-of from 12noon to 3pm. The server and bartender were lovely and kept us fed and hydrated. We gave them a big tip (assuming they were in the catering team). Hopefully it wont go to Paletta admin.
    During the preparation on the day-of, we felt like they just let us do all the work at the venue without any support from them. It kinda sucks.

    The catering team and food were a delight! That made us really happy throughout the night. And of course the location and view was gorgeous, just no sunset views because it’s on the other side.
    If you really want this location, i recommend getting your own coordinator to avoid most of the stress.

    Beautiful Venue, Customer Service Unacceptable

    Beautiful Venue marred by difficulty working with the Event Coordinator. Our budget included upgrades for premium liquor, Menu Add-Ons, linens etc but the coordinator was not interested in supporting us plan the wedding we envisioned. We found working with the coordinator very stressful and the weeks leading up to the wedding we regretted our decision choosing Paletta. We did not prep for our big day at the venue because we wanted to avoid the hassle of dealing with the coordinator. Note: we provided a seating chart and the tables were not set up properly. Morning of the florist who came early to arrange the centrepieces and guest table - luckily had a seating chart and she re-arranged the tables. After dinner we gave away our centre pieces to our guests and one of the guests (had a few glasses of wine) won the centre piece and offered it to the server. And the server accepted !! I understand our guest should not have done that but the server should have refused. The centre pieces were gifts for our guests. Not the staff. Long story short. Very disappointed in the experience and if we could do it over again we would Not choose Paletta.

    Wedding in February During COVID

    The Paletta Mansion was nothing but perfection. The food was astounding and the staff was amazing. Brittney was so accommodating through the pandemic. We booked our date in 2019 and was still able to have the best wedding 3 years later in 2022. Jill during the night was amazing and made the night so easy. Gabriel the bartender never let me have an empty drink. He was also amazing. My guests raved about the food, the whole venue and staff. Amazing, perfect day. I can’t say enough good things about Paletta!!

    Worry-free fairytale wedding

    Huge thank you to the entire Paletta mansion and Edge catering team! Our wedding day was dreamy and I felt so well cared for by Jill, our day of coordinator from Edge catering. She was so attentive and kind, and took care of all requests we had for her. Brittany, our booking coordinator, was also very responsive and great to work with. And our bartender was awesome as well! Overall, just the venue itself is breathtaking, add a professional team running catering there and you get a recipe for a perfect wedding. Ours certainly was like a fairytale! We will definitely come back to the beautiful Paletta park grounds to relive those happy moments ❤️ I will also upload some pictures once they are ready :)

    Perfect Micro Wedding

    We got married in early May this year and we are very happy with our venue choice at Paletta! Brittany was amazing and helped make this possible for us - she was easy to work with and very responsive as we navigated through all the uncertainty with covid. Brittany was patient with all our concerns/inquiries and flexible in adjusting our original plans accordingly with the constantly changing regulations. She was even there with us the day of assisting with coordination along with Ian, another staff who assisted with the table, chair, and takeout food arrangements

    The venue is beautiful - manor, greenery, and of course lake view. Even though it was not the wedding we imagined or originally planned for with the restrictions around covid, the day turned out perfect! The food was also tasty - we would highly recommend Paletta - views are spectacular and service is excellent!

    Amazing Experience

    We booked with Paletta Mansion prior to the Covid-19 pandemic for their off season sale, and were so excited to have such a beautiful venue at a reasonable price.

    Brittany was our contact throughout the year leading up to our wedding, and she has been nothing but wonderful the entire time. Brittany was extremely responsive, and always able to answer my many questions throughout the planning stages.

    Covid of course created a lot of challenges. Many times we were unsure of where we would be for our wedding with the rules, but Brittany kept in touch and helped us in our planning as best she could.

    Two days before our wedding the province announced a new lockdown would begin on our wedding day. Paletta management worked with us quickly to navigate the rules and adjust our plans, and although we ended up only having a very small number of guests, the venue was perfect, the staff friendly and helpful, and the take out food at the end was delicious.

    Paletta allowed us to adjust our contract with them throughout the pandemic, as we were really not comfortable trying to have a reception even if the provincial rules would allow. We changed to their elopement package, which was perfect.

    I highly recommend Paletta Mansion for any event. The venue is stunning, the grounds are stunning, the staff and management team are wonderful and they made our pandemic wedding the best it could have been on the first day of a provincial lockdown.

    Under a week wedding

    So we had a wedding venue planned for Nov,2020 everything was ready for a covid wedding of under 20 people and a week before the wedding the region went under lockdown.
    we contacted Paletta with zero hope of anyone willing to take us on 6 days before a wedding and I cant tell you how accommodating and easy and understanding they were with us. everything was planned under a week, they accommodated our schedule which was a weird one (we had a south Asian fair- had to sign at an auspicious time) and basically was our saving grace!
    I CANNOT STRESS on how amazing they were and how understanding this venue and their management and event planning team is!

    Thank you! from Mike & Pavi
