Best venue out there!

For us it was more of a sentimental spot. We’re always in the area with our girls and there for every festival occasion at Spencer’s park. From our first meeting with Spencer’s we just knew it we were meant to have our wedding there! From the food; to their staff, everything was perfect. They truly helped with the planning process and made every step so easy that the day of our wedding was just so stress free.

Excellent service and beautiful venue

The management and staff at Spencer’s were top notch. We had an 80 guest wedding at this venue in January 2024 and it was so beautiful! The preferred vendors were invaluable as it took all the vetting out of our process. Leading up to the wedding the tasting event was so good and really well organized! The actual ceremony and reception was seemless as the concierge and management made sure everything went off just as planned. You can rest assured that if you choose this venue you will be well taken care of as these folks really know how to a wedding! Elegant, sophisticated and so memorable.

Beautiful venue

Thank you Spencer's for helping us have a perfect wedding! Besides the stunning glass observatory being a key factor in our decision, Spencer's also included many extras that I did not realize wasn't the norm for weddings. We were super thankful to take the extra stressors out of wedding planning with things like chairs and linens, and even the officiant!

I was blown away by the Spencer's team on the day of! They were so quick and helpful with set up, switching from ceremony to reception, and their attentiveness during dinner was incredible. The food was amazing, the venue is beautiful, and the team is really productive. We had such a wonderful time with our loved ones.

Huge shoutout to my lovely event coordinator Marian, who stuck by me throughout the whole year during the planning process. I am so thankful to have had a kind and friendly face by my side. Highly recommend hosting your wedding with Spencer's!

Our dream wedding venue!

My dream wedding venue! I wouldn't have had my wedding anywhere else. Spencer's At the Waterfront offered the most stunning waterfront view for our wedding. Although there were a couple of hiccups at the beginning of the planning process, Jon, the GM definitely helped turn our experience around. However, I'd say our experience could have not been a 5-star experience without Marian. We had a couple of Special Events Consultants along the way but we were so grateful we had Marian help us execute the wedding. She was extremely knowledgeable and her energy was so infectious! Also shout out to the entire team working on the evening of July 16th, 2023. You guys were AMAZING. Multiple guests came up to us and told us how amazing the service was and more so, how spectacular the food was! Food quality, presentation and options were so important to us and this venue will not disappoint. Thank you to everyone at Spencer's who made our wedding so unforgettable!

Spencer’s Review

From the moment we visited Spencer’s at The Waterfront, we knew that this was the perfect venue for my partner and I to have our wedding for a multitude of reasons. 1. My partner and I are a queer couple and it was important for us to work with vendors who were queer-friendly. Spencer’s fit the bill as everyone was warm and welcoming. 2. The venue is bright and airy with stunning views. 3. They have hired the perfect team to execute their guests special events!

Marian (our special events consultant) was a dream to work with! It felt like we were planning our wedding with a good friend. She understood our vision right away and helped us curate the perfect day. Both Marian and Samantha were prompt with communication, which helped put our mind at ease with how our big day would go. The team at Spencer’s display a high level of hospitality skills to ensure that their guests are happy and overly satisfied with their experience. Bar staff, management staff, kitchen staff: phenomenal and personable. Through Spencer’s, we were connected to a lovely officiant (John Shore), who we met at our rehearsal. John was easy-going and had great energy, which allowed us to feel relaxed and ready to declare our love in front of our family and friends.

We also want to take time to thank Jon (general manager) for being awesome. He is the true embodiment of going “above and beyond” and really helped us out on our big day to ensure everything went according to plan by supporting his team.

We highly recommend anyone considering this venue to book a tour, you won’t be disappointed!

Exceptional team made my big day remarkable

I am absolutely thrilled to express my heartfelt gratitude through this glowing review for the exceptional wedding venue team that played a pivotal role in making our special day a resounding success. From the very beginning, their dedication and unwavering commitment to excellence shone through, creating an experience beyond our wildest dreams.
The coordination and attention to detail displayed by the venue team were truly outstanding. Every aspect of our wedding was seamlessly orchestrated, from the initial planning stages to the final moments of the event. Their ability to manage multiple moving parts while ensuring that everything fell into place perfectly was a testament to their expertise and professionalism.
One of the standout qualities of this team was their prompt and responsive approach. Every request, no matter how big or small, was met with efficiency and enthusiasm. Their willingness to listen to our ideas, offer suggestions and implement changes in a timely manner not only eased our minds but also enhanced our confidence in their capabilities.
The team's dedication to accommodating our needs was simply exceptional. They consistently went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was aligned with our vision.

Thank you Spencer's.

From the beginning to the end this team was amazing. I recommended them before I even booked the venue. They have been so accommodating to me and my family. The food is delicious. The venue during night it phenomenal when photographed. During the day obviously even better!

Absolutely Amazing Experience

After travelling to Germany for our son’s wedding we were tasked with throwing a party for the Canadians who wanted to celebrate the couple’s marriage. We frequently enjoy Spencer’s restaurant so we did not hesitate to book our celebration with them. From the planning staff ( Marian, Samantha, Jen) to our day of co-Ordinator Jessica, we received the best thoughtful service and guidance! They went above and beyond to personalize our experience making us feel like the only event of the summer. And the food, of course, raves about the food. Great people doing a great job! I would highly recommend booking your wedding here… will be blown away!

Look no further for your wedding venue!

My husband and I can't recommend Spencer's enough. From the very first meeting, their customer service was excellent. They care for you so personally, despite being so busy with many couples and a high stress wedding season! Our wedding day ran so smoothly, and the venue is stunning. Every single person there will go above and beyond to ensure that all your needs are met. Thank you once again Spencer's!
