    Wedding vendor of our dream!

    Ancaster Mill was such a dreamy place to host our big day! The entire event team, especially Megan who was our coordinator, was so helpful throughout the planning process. We had so many little requests and the team was nothing but understanding and accommodating throughout. Our Concierge, Tara, was one of the reason why the day went so smoothly! She took care of our needs and ensured that our families had a great time! From the dreamy waterfall backdrop to the delicious food and rustic reception room, Ancaster Mill exceeded our every expectation!

    Fantastic experience!

    We primarily worked with Rochelle who was amazing. She was on-top of responding to me in regards to booking appointments and questions. She was very detail oriented and very kind. She eased the process and made us feel like everything was going to run smoothly (which it did). All of our appointments went well and we really enjoyed our menu tasting. The staff was great and very aware of the dietary restrictions and accommodating! The day of was absolutely everything I could have dreamed of! The minute we got to Ancaster Mill, we were greeted by a parking tenant who gave us a ride to the round about where we were greeted by our concierge, Courtney who was absolutely amazing to work with! She was so helpful throughout the evening and she was running around getting drinks and making sure we had some appetizers from our cocktail hour waiting for us in the bridal suite for after our photos. The night was wonderful and it was because of everyone at Ancaster being so on top of everything! I would highly recommend them for a wedding!

    Best service

    Everyone was so nice. So many people assigned to assist in the whole process and the big day that you feel very well taken care of. They run everything like a well oiled machine, put me completely at ease.
