    Beautiful Venue + Incredible Staff = Perfect Choice

    We chose the Donald Gordon Centre as the setting for our June, 2019 wedding and could not have made a more perfect choice for our 60 person event. The limestone buildings and beautiful landscaping provided the perfect backdrop for our courtyard ceremony. The Coach House Pub, along with its outdoor patio, allowed for the intimate atmosphere we wanted for our reception and was also ideal for our evening of live music and dancing. Our guests raved about the quality and variety of food, the incredible bar staff, and the ambiance. Julianna worked with us and with the rest of the staff to make sure every detail was taken care of and that our day was stress free. Thanks to this incredible team, I can honestly say we were able to thoroughly enjoy our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect!

    Wonderful venue for 50th anniversary party

    We hosted my parents 50th Surprise anniversary party at the DGC for approximately 50 guests. It was a perfect venue, having both indoor and outdoor spaces to gather. The food was excellent and very plentiful! Something for everyone. The staff were very well prepared and very responsive both prior to the event and on the day of. They allowed us to come in several hours in advance to set up flowers, decor, etc. Very good value as well!

    50th Anniversary Vow Renewal

    We celebrated our 50th at The Donald Gordon Center in their Coach House Pub September 21st 2019, and renewed our vows at the same location in their courtyard.
    We could not of asked for any better venue or experience.
    The service was excellent and the food was amazing. All of our guests kept complimenting us on choosing Donald Gordon Center as they were so impressed with the service , the food and the overall atmosphere.
    Julianna Harbec was the coordinator for our event and it was a pleasure to work with her. She is great at what she does. What we didn't think of she did.
    We would highly recommend anyone looking to book for a special occasion to check out this location. They will not be disappointed.

    We have our ceremony, dinner and reception at a little hidden gen near the downtown of Kingston, in the heart of Queen's University. We had a lovely ceremony in the courtyard, a beyond delicious dinner in the main dining room, and a super fantastic reception in the limestone pub. The venue offers onsite hotel style rooms for those that do not wish to travel!
