    Beautiful Wedding

    We had the most amazing wedding experience with Jillian and Scott and the incredible staff at this venue. They were all so friendly and helpful everything turned out beautifully. The food and drinks were excellent. The venue was gorgeous. I could not have asked for anything more.

    Our Summer Butternut Tree Wedding

    Jillian, Scott and their team facilitated nothing but what could be described as a magical event for us. As a pair of business professionals, we didn't have time to plan every nuance for our wedding. Jillian and Scott made planning extremely easy by helping us customize a menu and plan for our reception and provided suggestions and solutions to what we wanted relieving a lot of the burden of wedding planning off our shoulders. The venue is extraordinarily accommodating providing menu options to a variety of budgets. A major factor was the all-in costs of the event where there were no surprises. It was evident that they did everything they could to make sure our wedding reception was executed perfectly, our guests were looked after, and our sometimes odd requirements were attended to (custom shot glasses made of ice). The end result is an amazing venue where all our guests raved about the exceptional food, service, atmosphere, and view. We look forward to many more special events being celebrated here!

    Intimate Wedding Party

    My husband and I got married on April 28th. Let me just say that the service is expectional. The waiters are trained and very attentive. I don’t think I’ve ever had better service. Although I know this is a high end restaurant I did expect the portions to be a bit bigger. We had our guest have the tasting menu and although it was delicious, after a long day of pictures + ceremony + exhaustion, a meal that is delicious AND filling would be ideal. The options for cocktails was exquisite and delicious. It was intimate and it was really nice to have an menu served in stages to keep the conversation going. 8.5/10 overall

    Our perfect day

    Choosing The Butternut Tree for our dinner and reception made our wedding day the most perfect day.

    Right from the beginning Jillian and Scott were extremely accommodating and their communication with us was phenomenal. We wanted to have a more intimate dinner for just family but a bigger reception with canapés, this was no problem for them.

    Our first official meeting with Scott and Jillian was to discuss our general plans and what we had in mind for the dinner; it was very professional yet comfortable. At a later date we had our tasting of the dishes we had discussed during the first meeting. Everything was delicious and it was very easy to choose our favourites.

    Any questions or concerns that we had in the months previous to the wedding were quickly addressed by Jillian and it was always a pleasure to deal with her. Once again, she was always so accommodating and understanding.

    Once our day finally came we could not believe how perfect and flawless everything was. From the menus and name cards to drinks and the food to our twinkling string lights, everything was incredible. What’s so beautiful about The Butternut Tree itself is that it’s simple yet breathtakingly elegant; we did not need to add anything to it.

    The dinner was absolutely unbelievable; every flavour was elevated and tasted even more incredible than the tasting. The staff was so attentive and wonderful; they truly made everything so special. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the reception well into the night.

    Thinking back to our perfect day, we would not change anything. It truly is a day we wish we could relive over and over again.

    Thank you Scott and Jillian and the rest of The Butternut Tree for being the most wonderful hosts and for making our day unforgettable.
