Amazing wedding experience

We booked Paletta Mansion after viewing just this one venue in person and it did not disappoint. It's a beautiful and intimate space for a smaller wedding, but has everything you need on site (ceremony, reception, beautiful backdrop for photos). Brittany and the Edge Hospitality team have been wonderful throughout the wedding planning process and on our wedding day. Food was great, service was excellent. We especially appreciated the communication and organization from them, which made the whole experience stress-free!

Bridal Shower

An absolute perfect place to host a bridal shower. With a romantic and vintage feel to the venue, I decided to do a Parisian theme and it was a dream come true! I couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. Marisa was amazing to work with in the planning process and the day-of staff were so kind and attentive to all of my group’s needs that day. I highly recommend this venue, and the lakeview is an added bonus! Food was also very good, and an overall amazing value.

Unforgettable Experience

My husband and I were married at Paletta in June, and we can’t get over how amazing it was – and neither can our guests! The grounds are beautiful with lush greenery, perfectly maintained flower beds, and a picturesque rocky beach. The mansion itself has been lovingly maintained to keep its character and it still has a homey feel rather than an empty blank event space.

We really appreciated the dedicated Bride/Groom rooms which served as home base for our families and gave us a quiet, private place to get away to when we needed a break. Our guests loved that they had free range of the grounds and the property (upstairs, downstairs, outside) to wander and take in the views of Lake Ontario at their leisure.

As beautiful as the venue is, the SERVICE and FOOD was even better, ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. Our guests are still talking about it, and we even heard that some of our guests have tried to recreate at home several of the dishes that we served. We opted for a cocktail style reception with several stations and lots of passed hors d’oeuvres. The staff was incredible, quickly bringing food, clearing dishes, and even remembering individual guest allergies. Everything was delicious and it was by far the best food many (if not all) of our guests have had at a wedding. It’s also worth mentioning that the bartender, Gabriel, was so friendly and FUN – we have several great photos with him.

My husband and I wish we had more life events coming up that we could host at Paletta. The Paletta team made us look so good and impressed all of our guests, we are so proud to have called Paletta home, if only for the day. It’s such a special place and we’re so happy we have the memories at Paletta!

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.

Amazing Experience

We were so happy we chose Paletta for our wedding venue. The venue was beautiful, it was a sunny and warm day so the park and patio were amazing, and the staff were exceptional. Everything went according to plan and the food / appetizers were delicious. We had one guest who had an accident, and the staff reacted professionally and quickly ... we were so impressed and thankful they were there to support us. We highly recommend this venue - thanks so much to Paletta staff for making our day perfect!

The Perfect Experience!

Paletta Mansion is the perfect location for a wedding. It's so unique and beautiful compared to your standard banquet hall. You will have access to multiple levels of the mansion and much of the beauty comes from the historical mansion itself. We did not require much decor or flowers as the mansion really did the heavy lifting when it came to the tone and atmosphere.

The food catered by this venue is the best wedding food you will ever eat. Every item is so good from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the dinner to the late night buffet. We had chicken and waffles, poutine, meatballs, steam korean buns for the appetizers. Then the dinner was top to bottom delicious where I would highly recommend the beef roast. Lastly, the late night buffet was excellent and they give you so many options! We had late night tacos and ramen/pho station which all of our guests absolutely loved. The food was cooked with such care and did not taste like your standard generic wedding food. You have so much options for flexibility.

As for the staff, you could not ask for more excellent staff. If you have the pleasure of having Jane, LJ, Gabriel (bartender) and Marcelo for you night, then you are in luck. This staff did everything above and beyond to ensure the night went smoothly, They took care of everything and ensure everything came out on time. They were a joy to work with and accommodated for all your requests.

The best for last is the wedding coordinator, Marisa. She was so easy to work with. She was on top of everything and made things so easy for us. She took notes of every single little request we made and did not miss a single detail! She is so organized and attention orientated. You will feel so at ease with her coordinating your day. It really helped take more off our plate to schedule that is allowed us to focus on other things around our wedding. She is fast to respond, extremely flexible with requests and so easy to work with.

Overall, I cannot recommend this place enough. Don't do your wedding a big, boring banquet hall. Pick Paletta Mansion where you will have a wedding that your guests will never forget!

Great Venue but Day Of Staff Errors

This venue is amazing and our work with the coordinator throughout the entire process was fantastic. It was a perfect day, but the day of staff at the venue were challenging. My husband and I are both coeliac and generally everything was kept separate so we didn’t get sick. However, our wedding cake (which was specifically gluten-free) ended up being cut and mixed up with the regular cake. This meant we couldn’t couldn’t actually eat our wedding cake and as all the tiers ended up being cut despite our request, we had to throw the whole thing out at the end.
They were also issues with the bartender going missing and hooking up with a member of the wedding party, as well as alcohol specifically bought for our wedding (as my husband and I were unable to drink beer) was not found until the end of the night. The staff did run out and pick up the alcohol that was missing from LCBO, but that was only after my husband insisted because we paid so much for it and family members were willing to run out themselves to get a can or two.
Overall, it went pretty well, but there were issues with the day of staff members that I make me u decided about if I would recommend the venue or not.

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.

Great Venue, Staff and Food!

We got married May 6th 2022. Zorka and Alexandria were so helpful during the planning process. We unfortunately had to reschedule our orginal date in Jan 2022 (Covid) and they were both so helpful.

Having the entire masion and grounds to use is fantastic especially for pictures. You dont need a rain plan for your photos lots of great spots inside.

The food was great, service staff was lovely and accommodating to last minute things that came up. The bartender amways made sure we had a drink. We were looking for a venue with good food and not you typical banquet hall. Overall we were very happy we booked with Paletta.
