    New Year’s Eve Wedding!

    We got married on December 31st, and the Cambridge Mill was so instrumental in making our day one we will remember forever! They were flexible and accommodating with the ever changing governmental guidelines, and despite not optimal circumstances with the pandemic, Lyndsay, Philip and their team went above and beyond! We would HIGHLY recommend the Cambridge Mill for your wedding! Oh, and the food is to die for!

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Dear Andrew,
    Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to share your experience with us and our team. We are thankful for incredible couples such as yourself and Michelle . We look forward to celebrating with you in the future!

    Breathtaking.

    Honestly. My wedding was so perfect, I am sad it’s over. 2.5 years ago, if you asked me how my wedding planning was going, I would have cried. I wouldn’t have ever thought that my wedding could have been so incredible.
    Through every hiccup, every question, every time of uncertainty, Lyndsay and the team at the mill guided me along the way.

    They were so accommodating, up until the last day when I had to add some toddlers to the wedding. No questions asked, it was taken care of.

    The day of my wedding, I have an absolutely FABULOUS team working with me, who went above and beyond any expectations I could have had. One of the girls spent her day in the cold carrying a blanket to keep ME warm because I forgot my shall. The same woman went out of her way to show me that I finally got snow on my wedding day. They calmed my nerves, took care of my guests. I could go on.

    Not only was the venue stunning, and the team fabulous but the food. OH MY GOD. The food. We had a big Italian family at our wedding (My husband is grandson to a LONGO so the CEO of Longo’s was actually in attendance) and they all raved about the food and said how much they loved the pasta. Davids Nonna even said how good it was- and she usually only eats her own homemade sauce.

    I will tell any bride I ever speak to, to have a pearl wedding- we could not be more grateful to the team there for making our happily ever after come true.

    Thank you

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Good Afternoon,

    Congratulations on your amazing wedding!

    On behalf of the team at Cambridge Mill, we thank you again for choosing us to be part of your special day.

    We wish you all the very best in your life together.

    Warm Regards,

    Cambridge Mill was the best choice we made :)

    After "saying Yes" to my now-husband, choosing the Cambridge Mill was one of the best choices I made. From the beginning, we were so happy with the fantastic rooms and service. The ceremony space (the Pavillion) made me cry the first time we walked into the space. I would have been happy to recommend them 2 years ago when planning was going smoothly, then COVID hit.
    Since then the team at the Cambridge Mill has been nothing but amazing. So supportive through the whole process and understanding as regulations and lockdowns changed many times. It took 3 dates, but we finally had our wedding on Nov 13 2021 and the was amazing.
    The team truly is world-class and made sure my husband and I had everything we needed throughout the night.
    We are so thankful to Lyndsay and Ty and the whole team. When we can we will be back to celebrate many more milestones and life events

    An Amazing Venue, with an Exceptional Team

    Overall my husband and I were over the moon with the service and quality of Cambridge Mill and the Pearle Events team! Our guests told us multiple times that evening, and afterwards, how outstanding the food was and how the staff were so accommodating and helpful! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and there are so many beautiful places on the grounds to capture special moments.
    Please take this with a grain of salt, I say this for my fellow type A personalities out there, just to level set expectations. Unfortunately I did think that at times communication was lacking while we were planning, there were times when I wouldn't get responses for multiple days and it made it tough to manage discussions with other vendors without the feedback from the Mill.
    My only other concern was that they did a terrible job at managing our decor. So many pieces went missing and were never even placed for the reception. There were also a few pieces that we rented that weren't returned to us until days after the wedding which caused a lot of back and forth. Overall we did get everything back, but it was just such a messy process with lots of room for improvement. In their defense, we did have a lot of decor and I can understand that it was probably overwhelming. I just had higher expectations I guess.
    I hope no one reads this negatively, I just wanted to be totally transparent and these were things I wish I had known.
    Overall, I think Cambridge Mill is a fantastic venue and they definitely were very accommodating and super helpful at every stage of the process. I can't imagine having a wedding anywhere else!

    I have nothing but good things to say about this place!

    I have nothing but good things to say about this place! They were so very helpful from the very beginning. They even worked around our budget! Every step of the way they helped us with the planning. Lyndsay was absolutely amazing!! They checked up on us every couple of months to make sure that the planning process went smooth! They provided everything. The food was absolutely amazing!! And the view, WOW! 100% been recommending them to everyone. Cant wait to go there for dinner on our anniversary!

    A DREAM Wedding Venue

    We were married on August 22, 2021 and it was our DREAM wedding. I want to first thank the amazing team of coordinators, Amie, our special events consultant, Bonnie, and Monica that have made our wedding memorable and spectacular. The guests LOVED every moment of our day, especially the food and the Falls room. We are SO incredibly lucky to have picked an amazing venue. The planning of our wedding was easy, thanks to Amie. Every detail of our wedding was taken care of. The BEST wedding venue - 5 stars!

    Amazing experience during a lockdown wedding

    When we booked our wedding date back in November 2019, little did we know our wedding would take place during a pandemic, or even worse, a lockdown. With the restrictions in place, we were allowed a 10 person ceremony. Despite all the circumstances, my husband and I chose to go ahead with our wedding ceremony, and I’m so glad we did. We were absolutely pleased with the service and guidance provided by the Cambridge Mill. Our wedding day went smoothly! Phillip was an amazing day of coordinator! Amie was super helpful leading up to the wedding. The venue was perfect and accommodating. We truly felt special on our wedding day!

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Good morning Supriya,

    Congratulations on your amazing wedding!

    On behalf of the team at Cambridge Mill, we thank you again for choosing us to be part of your special day.

    Wedding of my dreams

    The Mill was amazing! Even though COVID (50 people) tried time and time again to ruin all my plans, the Cambridge Mill made sure everything that was important to me including people, vendors and decor. They worked every detail out making sure my husband and I were happy and comfortable before going through with the wedding. Trust me, I had to do 3 changes the week of to my seating plan (covid restrictions) and stages the regions were changing into. I was stressed but they made sure everything was organized and going smoothly. The food was amazing! My guests still rave about the food that was at my wedding. COVID or not, I would do it all over again! Thank you Cambridge Mill, we look forward to coming back to indulge in the delicious food you have!

    A beautiful day

    A day that I had been looking forward to forever but when covid hit and it changed plans for me I was upset. We had to postpone from March to October and already postponed once I wasn’t planning on doing it again. I’m so thankful that I didn’t postpone and went ahead with 18 people on October 30th 2020. The Cambridge Mill was great to work with from start to finish and I would recommend it to anyone. We worked with Ty when originally planning our big day and he was nothing but amazing. Philip made our special day even more special. They were both so helpful with everything we needed on our day of and I couldn’t have done it without them. I wouldn’t have changed my day for anything and I’m so happy we did it finally! I can’t wait to plan something with all of our friends and family but for now this was the best day ever.

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Dear Shauni,
    Thank you for sharing your wedding story and your kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to share your experience with us and our team. We will pass along your message to Ty and Philip! We are always very thankful for incredible couples such as yourself and Matt. We look forward to celebrating with you in the future!

    Incredible from start to finish!

    I can't say enough how happy we were with our Cambridge Mill wedding. They were so great to deal with through the pandemic and ended up delivering the perfect COVID friendly wedding. We had Ty and then Lyndsay as our consultants and were so happy with both (and the transition between the 2 when TY moved to a new job). The food was unreal (seriously top-notch). The Pavilion, reception rooms, and grounds are gorgeous. Philip and Stefanie made the whole day run like clockwork and tended to our every need. These are wedding professionals and it shows. Every detail was taken care of.

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Dear Michelle,
    It was truly a pleasure to read this incredible review you posted. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to share these kind words with our team. We know this year has been challenging but hearing how special your wedding day was to your family and friends is incredibly encouraging. We have shared your kind words with Philip and Stefanie, they are great members of our team. We look forward to celebrating with you in the future and wish you all the best!
    Warm Regards, Cambridge Mill Team

On my days off I can be found spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid cross-stitcher and reader, often opting for Audio books so I can do both of my favourite hobbies at the same time!
