    Dream wedding at Spencers

    The team at Spencers is phenomenal. They were professional, kind and flexible throughout our planning process, and were accommodating with the ongoing changes with Ontario's regulations. We were only allowed to have a 10 people reception due to COVID restrictions, but it felt the most normal we have felt all year! The team did a really good job at ensuring we had everything we needed, our guests were happy and everything went smoothly.

    Highly recommend this venue. It is beautiful, the food is delicious and it is easy accessible if you're from Toronto.

    Dream, magical wedding

    We can't even begin to express how happy we are that we chose Spencer's for our wedding! The venue was absolutely beautiful, with the most perfect view of the waterfront. There were lots of different spots to take pictures. We had to lower our guest count and change our date due to COVID, and Jocelynn was so accommodating with everything from day one. She was super quick to respond to any questions we had! Our day-of coordinator, Briar, was absolutely AMAZING. She was constantly there for us and even brought us things before we even realized that we needed it! We highly recommend Spencer's to anyone, for any size wedding! Thanks Spencer's!!!!

    Gorgeous venue

    Having my wedding at Spencer’s at the Waterfront absolutely took my breath away the day of the wedding. It was more gorgeous than I remembered. Walking down the isle awaiting to marry the man of my dreams all while looking at the scenic waterfront views is a memory I will always cherish. I applaud and thank Jocelynn for always responding in such a timely manner. The staff were absolutely AMAZING. Even the chef out did himself; all my guests truly enjoyed their 3-course meals. The bartender was very professional and greeted my guests in a kindly manner. Overall, I have never been more pleased. This venue is not only gorgeous from the moment you walk in but you have every staff member doing such a phenomenal job.
    Thank you very much for helping to create not only such a beautiful day for me but also a very memorable one.

    Absolutely Amazing!!

    Highest of recommendations to Spencer's and Pearle Hospitality.
    They went above and beyond to make our special day happen - on April 30th - during Covid.
    We were married on our front step, with 5 people present, minding social distancing (Burlington Bylaw Officer approved - yes, there were two present on the street).
    Jocelynn was absolutely amazing. She delivered meals for our family to us, to send with our families (who were in cars parked across the street).
    The meals were absolutely amazing, and packaged individually, ensuring ingredients didn't mix, for freshness and deliciousness!
    I highly recommend Spencer's and Pearle Hospitality.
    They have been absolutely amazing to us during this difficult, stressful and emotional time.

    Perfect!!!!

    From the first meeting until our wedding day Spencer's did a phenomenal job!! The venue was absolutely stunning! We got so many compliments on the food and service! We had a lot of dietary requirements and Jocelyn and the chef's made sure they were all taken care of!
    Sunny was amazing the day of making sure everything ran smoothly, taking care of the small things, keeping me hydrated with water and champagne and reminding us to eat!!!

    The view was gorgeous with the floor to ceiling glass windows it gave us an outsider wedding feel.

    When things calm down and the world is back to normal I would recommend this venue for your dream wedding

    A Dream Come True

    This venue is breathtaking so it was no brainer for us to book our wedding with Spencers. The planning process with Jocelyn was such a breeze and stress-free. Her team is so efficient and always answered our many emails so quickly.
    The day itself couldn't have gone any better; Sonny was my angel through the day and knows her brides! We loved the service from the whole team and they deserve a medal.
    My family and friends are still raving about the food. The BOH team did an amazing job! Compliments to Matteo for the menu and mouth-watering dishes.

    Overall, the whole day was a dream come true and thank you Spencer's!

    Best Day of My Life

    Pearle Weddings helped to create our perfect wedding like a well-oiled machine. We felt well taken care of throughout the entire planning process (10-months). Jocelynn and Nicola always responded to all our questions via email promptly and thoroughly. I’ve heard nothing but glowing reviews from our guests at how accommodating and attentive the concierge, maître’d, and wait staff were the night of our wedding. The Pearle Wedding team are true professionals, weddings is their business and they absolutely excel at it! Thank you Spencer’s for making our Wedding Day Dreams comes true.

    They made our day perfect

    We just got married at Spencer’s at the Waterfront and we cannot recommend them highly enough. From our first tour of the space to our wedding day, they provided exceptional service and support. During our planning process, Jocelynn, Sunny and Morgan provided us with insightful recommendations to make our day even more special. This team took care of everything for us, every single detail. Our day was quite hot and the team even came around giving us all ice cream and cool treats to keep us from melting in our photos. The beauty of the venue speaks for itself but what really makes this venue special is the staff. I am so grateful to Jocelynn, Sunny and Morgan. They truly love their jobs and are passionate about making your wedding the best it can be to fit your vision. Not only are they extremely professional, but they also interject so much fun into the day. If they hadn’t been so busy working, we would have loved to have them as guests because they become like family throughout the process. Our guests were so impressed with how organized the wedding was and how approachable the staff were for any questions or special requests. Thank you so much, team Spencer’s, you made our day perfect and one our guests cannot stop talking about!
