    At The Schoolhouse was a very nice location for our low-key wedding. Tony and Izabela were very pleasant to work with and she helped ensure our day went off without a hitch! They were also extremely helpful when it came to suggestions for our big day!

    Our officiant, Barbara was absolutely fantastic as well! She worked very closely with us to help personalize our ceremony and make sure it went according to plan and she was so professional, yet calming and reassuring.

    I recommend both Barbara and At The Schoolhouse for your big day!!

    Izabela and her team with At The Schoolhouse did a fantastic job with our wedding. They coordinated the catering, the flowers, the cake, the decor, and more, all with consummate professionalism. The venue itself is so lovely and Izabela and the team set it up beautifully for our wedding. The service they provided was great, and I was never stressed, as they were always one step ahead of me in terms of making sure everything ran smoothly. They even helped me out when I got nauseous before the ceremony by getting me something to eat and making sure I felt ok. The guests all remarked on how nice the venue and the reception went, and I credit the At The Schoolhouse team for a lot of that! I would have no hesitation to recommend this venue to others.

    At the school house was very professional and very accommodating. We live out of town and did everything via email. They were great and the officiant was awesome. It was a beautiful venue and ceremony.

    My husband and I recently hosted a destination wedding for friends and family in Costa Rica - the process of getting legally married there, and then having the documents transferred and translated to be accepted in Canada was expensive and tedious. In addition our grandparents and my husbands father were unable to attend, so we were looking for options for a small Canadian wedding that could accommodate our needs of having a small legal ceremony. City hall was far, unable to host all our guests, and impersonal. We found the School House through an internet search and contacted them immediately. From the beginning they were extremely reliable and easy to deal with, we showed up for our day and were blown away by how beautiful and appropriately decorated the schoolhouse was for our day! The ceremony was perfect, photos are fantastic (I promise to share them soon!) My family loved it, and my photographer loved all the natural light! I would recommend them to anyone in a similar situation, or anyone with a relatively small guest list. Thank you SO MUCH Barbara and Tomasz! Tanya and Lennie
