About Kortright Event Space

Kortright Event Space is a charming park wedding venue located in Vaughan, Ontario. Originally founded in 1979, this multifaceted event area boasts several spaces to host your celebration of romance and commitment. With indoor and outdoor options available, this property can do justice to a whole host of themes and concepts. Featuring woodlands all around, it has multiple places where couples and wedding guests can come together for a remarkable celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

Owing to the several hundred acres of woodlands that envelope the Kortright Event Space, this property is a secluded retreat. It is ideal for those who would like a private gathering of between 80 and 200 people. For the milestone ceremony, couples can join together with their invitees at Forest Path or the Cathedral of Trees. In front of a makeshift gazebo, the to-be-weds can make their union official as seated guests watch on either side of the natural aisle. Surrounded by nature, these eye-catching settings create peaceful and easy-going ambiences for the elevated occasion. Alternatively, if the weather is not on the party’s side, everyone can make use of the indoor Forest Gallery. Once the officiant has declared the happy couple as newlyweds, they can exit to enjoy some photo opportunities around the grounds.

The Main Hall boasts the largest capacity of all for the partying and festivities, so it can accommodate approximately 150 guests. The Forest Gallery allows up to 135 people to mix and mingle, and this event space is illuminated by natural and artificial light thanks to both large windows and skylights. The Glass House is perhaps the most striking of all, and it can host 120 people. It lets the outside in while retaining a rustic warmth throughout. A get-ready suite is also available on site.

Services Offered

Couples who book their wedding at Kortright Event Space can avail themselves of an event planning service. The staff are delighted to work alongside clients to meticulously organize each detail, and they enjoy ensuring that each celebration lives up to expectations. Couples are free to choose a package that best suits them. Event rentals can be provided, while setup and cleanup services are also included. What’s more, a variety of hand-picked vendors are welcome to come on-site to tailor the property accordingly.

Cuisine

A partnership with Peter and Pauls Event Catering means that the couple and their loved ones can enjoy a high-quality culinary experience. Catering styles include hors d’oeuvres, buffets, cocktail receptions, plated meals, desserts, and more. Gluten-free and vegetarian fare is available, while organic and locally inspired menus can be furnished.

    Beautiful Location... service during planning was terrible

    The wedding day was great. Everything was wonderful, the setting was gorgeous, the serving staff (extra huge thank you to Janet and her team) did an excellent job. We had so many compliments on the food, and portion sizes were huge. My husband and I are very happy with how the day turned out, and we wouldn't change a thing.

    However, dealing with Kortright leading up to the wedding... was awful. I understand that it was during covid, but it would usually take weeks to get a email back from anyone, and they rarely picked up their phones. We had been planning this wedding since 2019 due to covid postponing our original date, and yet important information still managed to slip through the cracks and we only found out in the weeks leading up to the wedding. This was likely because we were passed along to about 5 or 6 different people, and it felt like starting from scratch with each one. About two weeks before the wedding, we were informed we would need a tent next to the glass house due to covid restrictions requiring extra spacing between tables. "All our glass house receptions need tents now," they told us as though we were already supposed to know this. "But they book up fast so you should hurry to rent one." This is just one example of how poor communication was. There are several others but it would take too long to type them all up. Overall, we were extremely disappointed with the planning processed with Kortright, and it led to extra stress with wedding planning, so we cannot recommend this venue.

    A week before the wedding, we were passed along to someone new who would end up being our day of coordinator. We would like to specially thank Meaghan, who did an awesome job. If we had been dealing with Meaghan from day one, I'm sure we would have had a better experience.

    Beautiful Venue

    We fell in love with the Kortright Centre for Conservation on our first visit and could picture what our wedding would look like surrounded by nature. We were excited to have our ceremony in the forest in August 2020, but unfortunately, we had to reschedule our reception to September 2021 due to the pandemic. We mainly corresponded with Stephanie who answered all of our questions throughout the 2 years of wedding planning via email and phone. She was clear, accommodating, and professional, but we found that it took longer than expected for her to respond to our email inquiries 2 months leading up to our wedding reception date (amidst the changing pandemic situation). We were pleased that our feedback for adjusting the menu from our tasting was fully taken into account and the food was delicious. However, our main course was served approximately 1 hour behind schedule, which pushed everything else back. That meant that there was no time for cake cutting at the end, which guests were looking forward to witnessing. Overall, we had a good experience and would recommend the venue.

    Wedding at Kortright

    Thankfully I had a wedding coordinator who managed to work through very last minute and changing financial elements Kortright threw at us 5 days before my wedding. The overall responsiveness from staff was often late or emails were not replied to - my wedding coordinator had to speak to the owner to sort out unexpected details at the very last minute. Happily, everything worked out, but had it not been for my coordinator, things on that day would have been much different.

    Unforgettable Evening

    I wanted to get married at Kortright for years. The outdoor space is just amazing. Stephanie did a very good job staying in contact with us despite the raging pandemic. She was always very reassuring and answered questions very quickly.
    We got married in the forest and had dinner in the glasshouse. Even with the extra spaced-out tables for COVID, everything felt great. People loved the firepit and popcorn station and the food was SO good.
    Some things I would note:
    1. Working with Stephanie was great but near the actual wedding day 2 other people take over and they weren't as responsive and it was hard to get certain information (like confirming our rehearsal time)
    2. The kitchen was a little slow on the food so we had to change up our reception schedule a bit
    3. For COVID restrictions, the tables had to be distanced and we could only fit about 70 people in the glasshouse. We still had to pay for 100 people so invited 100 and had to rent a tent with a different company. It was a bit last minute to find a tent company, this part was quite stressful.

    Overall we had an amazing day. The staff at Kortright really do care about you and your wedding. I didn't feel like I was just "another bride" - they really did take the time to make sure everything was running as it should.

    Thank you Kortright team!
