Our amazing wedding
Where do I even begin to describe the amazing and absolutely mind-blowing experience we had. Taryn and her stuff were so easy to work with, they were helpful and caring. They looked after all of our needs, responded to all and every question, want and whim of the bride (and groom). They never said no to anything, it was always, let’s see what we can do. Always smiling, always responsive, always friendly. They were with us throughout the entire process, helping, suggesting, and even helping with things that were not their responsibility. The entire venue was beautiful, they worked with our schedule, including when we had to decorate the rooms and stayed extra time when needed. After the wedding was over they collected all of our items for us and placed them carefully in the corner for pick up the next day. Also, they were the ones to put up all the linens and bows and what not, it was just amazing, I am could not be happier to work with them. P.S. We also had specialized desserts for my hubby and I and they were amazing. Thank you Bel Acres and it’s staff!Sent on 18/07/2018

Getting married during a pandemic was never easy. At first we were dealing with Camalee and she was absolutely incredible. We did a taste testing and all I can say is WOW, amazing food !! we dealt with Robin in the end, and he was nothing but fantastic to deal with especially because we had last minute changes a week before the wedding, cutting it down to ten people. He still made sure we got down that isle!!

We held our wedding at Bel Acres a few weeks ago. We were promised many things that they did not deliver on. We do not feel that we were given the level of service that was promised or that was paid for. The staff at bel acres is NOT willing to work with us to ensure we are happy or even pleased. Please, do not have your wedding here unless your wedding wish is to be disappointed.
This is just a hint at what went wrong on our wedding day because of Bel Acres and their staff. If this is how my wedding went, I can’t imagine which requests and wishes of others they won’t deem worthy of fulfilling after the making of promises....
We began planning with them in February. The clubhouse was going through a large winter renovation but the event planner Camalee helped us to see their vision and we had faith in her and what the end result would be. Everything at first seemed perfect, they dealt with and provided almost every vender and service at a surprisingly decent cost for a wedding. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful.
Slowly over the months due to Covid-19 many things were changed, they removed services while the price remained largely the same. They were not very helpful at easing our stress during this time, only adding to it. With only a week left until the wedding they forced us to cut half of our guests when the province was still allowing more than we had asked for. They claimed it was due to the fact that they felt the space wasn’t large enough to social distance in with that number of people. When we got there on our wedding day, there was so much space we could’ve fit at least 75 people distanced. If not the full government mandated 100! We understand that Covid is not Bel Acres fault and some of the changes they made had to happen. But they did not deal with them or telling us about them well. They also made their own changes and rules that did not make sense.
We were rushed through our wedding rehearsal and a waitress spilt a drink on a bridesmaid with no apology. The bar did not know what an old fashioned or vermouth was. Never mind being able to make it.
On the day of the wedding we had many issues but we lived through them with the intention of discussing them with the event planner within the next days only to learn she had been let go after the wedding. We cannot help but wonder if that could be because she performed so poorly while planning our wedding.
We were not given food we were promised, food and drinks were often very late causing other things to be late including the ceremony. Servers for drinks were almost unseen during the day. Guests had to go to the bar themselves to get drinks which we were told ahead of time would not be allowed. The servers were all chatting around the bar instead of being out serving our guests. As the bride, I was offered a drink once in 5 hours. There was other events going on in a building we had been told would be private and reserved only for us. We specifically requested sparkling wine for the whole day and the employees told us they were specifically told not to bring any in. The rooms they had the wedding party get ready and wait in before the ceremony were crowded and full of renovation supplies. They stunk like the sewer. After the wedding we were told there was a second location we could’ve been waiting in that would hopefully not of smelt but we’re not offered a choice between them before hand. We brought a few items for the wedding to the rehearsal and asked our planner what she thought we should do with them at the time and she told us she could take them and hold them in our office until the next day when she would do the necessary things with them. One of them was the pen we had specifically for signing our marriage license. During the ceremony we noticed the pen was not there and we were very anxious as to someone in the crowd needing to have a pen. Thankfully someone did however that is not a smooth situation.
