Our Wedding would not have been the same without Cambridge Mill!!

When we started out our wedding journey we knew there would be a lot of difficult and important decisions to make... one of the easiest decisions we made was picking Cambridge Mill as our wedding venue. I could probably (and happily) spend hours and hours raving about what an incredible venue Cambridge Mill is but I feel like I would still not be able to do it justice. From start to finish their staff are absolutely awesome, they are extremely responsive (and trust me as I was planning the wedding without the help of a coordinator I had ALOT of questions) and their staff never made be feeling like I was bothering them or burdening them with too many questions. I am a very visual person and visited the site multiple times during the process and each time I kept asking to see the Falls room (the room we picked) and each time the staff welcomed me asking and encouraged me to go and see the room and get the visuals I needed. Dalton was our coordinator and he was incredible! During the process we had a few hurdles to clear and Dalton made us feel relaxed and supported and assured us that he would work with us to make sure everything worked out. Our day of coordinator provided by the venue was Maddie and she was an absolute GEM! We can honestly say that if it was not for her our day would not have gone as smoothly as it did. She made us feel special and it just added so much more to our day. She was prepared and organized and made sure everything from start to finish was exactly what we envisioned. She really is the reason that my husband and I could truly relax and enjoy our day because we knew we could trust Maddie which is a BIG deal. She was a treasure to us and our wedding party that my maid-of-honour said she would get married at Cambridge Mill, but only if Maddie was part of her team. But it is not only the staff that make this venue the perfect choice for a wedding it is the location and atmosphere. Pearle Hospitality has really gone above and beyond to make this location a stunning beauty. The mill is a perfect combination of rustic-elegance which is EXACTLY what me and my husband were looking for in our venue and the Pavilion (ceremony space) is a DREAM COME TRUE. It gives you the perfect sense of an outdoor venue with big beautiful floor to ceiling glass walls while still being covered so that you may enjoy the river view all times of the year! And the FOOD is drool worthy. We received all sorts of compliments about how delicious the food was, and guests even said they planned to come back and enjoy a meal at the restaurant they loved the food so much. Me and my husband adore everything about Cambridge Mill and would recommend them to ANYONE looking to get married, you could not ask for anything better and we 10000000% know that our wedding day - one of the most important days of your life - would not have been the same without Cambridge Mill.

The best wedding venue

I am truly not even sure how to begin to express the absolutely amazing experience we had getting married at the Cambridge Mill. The Pearle Vendors team so amazing to work with and they made the wedding planning process SO easy. The venue is STUNNING with so many amazing photo locations around the site. The team that we worked with was SO kind and made all our guests feel so welcomed and taken care of and I am STILL receiving compliments from friends about how amazing the staff, the venue, and the food was. All this to say, if you are looking for a venue that will work with you and work for you, The Cambridge Mill is it.

They made it so easy!

Cambridge Mill made it so easy for us! They truly took so much of the wedding planning stress off our plates and were incredible with responses. The venue was beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for more on our special day!

I can’t say enough good things about this venue!

Cambridge Mill knocked it out of the park for our special day. From the food, to the staff & everything in-between, I was the most relaxed on my wedding day because of their hospitality, time management skills, communication skills & professionalism. Maddi (our Concierge) & Dalton (our Wedding Consultant) were both a pleasure to work with. We would happily recommend Cambridge Mill to everyone we know.

A picturesque venue!

We had the most magical wedding ceremony at the Cambridge Mill. From the stunning riverside location, to the special events team’s willingness to go above and beyond, it was an unforgettable experience.

We instantly fell in love with the Mill’s breathtaking views and elegant atmosphere. We were impressed by the team’s friendliness, organization and dedication to making sure our day was everything we’d dreamt of.

We appreciated that the Mill was conveniently located next to Mill Race Park so we could capture even more wedding photos, and were impressed that the wedding package included a trusted, professional, and reliable officiant as it was one less thing for us to stress about.

Thank you, Cambridge Mill, for making our special day truly extraordinary!

Amazing Venue, Better Food, Even Better Staff

I have wanted a wedding at the Cambridge Mill since I was seven years old. Being born and raised in Cambridge it was the only place I wanted to have my wedding. What I wasn't expecting was it to be so much more than my seven year old self could imagine.

The Venue
For starters, my Husband is from England where we now live. When deciding where to get married it was important that we had a fusion of our home countries. There was no question in my mind when deciding to book with the Cambridge Mill (CM) as all the natural stonework made for a very castle setting. We had our reception in the Falls Room which featured a HUGE cocktail area of all windows overlooking the river. The snow made everything shine adding to the "Wow!" factor. It thrilled my husband to be so close to the water and to have such an English setting for our perfect day. But the looks of building aren't what make a venue so special (because if that's not the look you're going for it won't be for you) so let me tell you what did...

Food
Immaculate. The only word for it. They served hot and cold hors d'oeuvres to my guests during the cocktail hour while we had pictures taken. Not just your average placed cocktail hour snacks... oh no.... hand delivered, fresh, delicious morsels for my party to enjoy while they waited and enjoyed some beverages. The entrees were beyond perfect. The smell, the portions and the flavour were all perfect. Every dish cooked to order with an important emphasis on making sure every one was enjoying there dish exactly the way they asked for it (including those with allergies!). We had a Haggis course, which isn't typical for the venue but they brought it in specifically for my wedding and boy did they nail it. It can be a tricky dish to do correctly but my guests would not stop talking about it! We opted for a wild mushroom puree (soup) that was absolutely to die for. It was so creamy and well balanced. I don't like mushrooms at all and I had to have this soup. For our mains we had a selection of a beef tenderloin or a stuffed chicken and a vegetarian option of a wild mushroom filled tart. My husband like the veg. option so much he requested to have it as well as the beef. Our guests raved about their main courses and couldn't believe how wonderful it all looked and tasted. Our dessert was a dark chocolate nemesis cake with candied blood orange and marmalade. This cake.... was everything. It tasted like a Terry's Chocolate Orange but far more decadent. Oh and let's not forget the late night station. Poutine and a charcuterie board sent everything over the top when it was announced and guests were so excited to have their first experience with poutine (considering half were from England).

The Staff
Wow. Just wow. Everyone from start to finish was so kind and attentive. The extra support you are provided as a Bride and Groom on the day of is unparalleled. Our MD was Bonnie - she was on top of EVERYTHING! I had created a rather detailed timeline that was followed to a T. She created the perfect setting for my perfect day and really put me at ease! Our Concierge was Monica - there aren't enough words. Monica was with us from when we arrived to have our photos done across the street until the end. She went above and beyond by making us comfortable, getting us drinks, carrying my dress and veil and even exchanging our soups when we were saying hello to guests to make sure when we sat down to eat it was hot. Both of them put an incredible amount of thought into every detail that was carried out that night and we couldn't be more thrilled. I was also visited by the Events Manager, Dani several times that evening. She came to see how we were enjoying our night and made sure we had anything and everything we asked for. She helped us at the end of the night with some decor which was so incredible as I hadn't made a plan. Also have to mention Maddie because she was so incredible! My family would NOT stop singing her praises the day after. She was so kind to our ring bearer and apparently cleaned up a mess he had made. She did it so quickly and efficiently I didn't even know about it until the day after! She went out of her way to make sure he was ok and didn't feel embarrassed which in my books is above the call of duty! Our bartenders were incredible - Brandon and Jake. My husband and I knew going into the wedding we may potentially have a.... rowdy crowd. These two handled everything perfectly. From making our signature drinks better than we ever could to making sure all of our guests were in good form and enjoying themselves. This team was incredible.

I don't think there is any way I will ever be able to appropriately express my gratitude to the CM team and the incredible evening they created for my guests. They truly made it a one-of-a-kind night for my husband and I.
