    Don't hire the hudson

    If I could offer Hudson 0 stars I would in a heartbeat. We hired them in July of 2019 to host our July 2020 wedding. We should have seen their lack of hospitality from day one but we were excited and shrugged over a few things. Email responses would take forever, some times we were waiting 3-5 days to get a simple yes or no response. It took us two weeks to coordinate with Chrissy to even drop off the deposit, and on the day of my fiancé called her to let her know we were there and she said to just give it to the reception at the Guild (imagine a company telling you to drop off $2,500 to a random at a restaurant they are affiliated with). After that they said they would contact us early march to do a taste testing so, we didn't have to hear from them for a while. However, February of 2020, I get an email saying they missed to inform us that our first payment was due which was fine with us but it took them 2 months to realize they didn't do their job. Except, I was traveling and so I told my fiancé to drop of the cheque. Little did we know COVID was on its way in a week and we were going to get screwed over. They got the payment immediately and then we began to receive emails of how they are pushing the taste testing and then Calgary went into lockdown and businesses were closed well after our wedding date. SO IN SHORT: they have our money, we got zero services, and we were the ones at loss. Since we knew covid was going to be around we asked for our money back as the contract was frustrated and did not want a wedding anymore. We only wanted the first payment back not the hall deposit. We got a NO. They came back a few times, and we did not accept. After 3 months of back and forth and mental drainage we sat down face to face with Matt and tried to have a proper conversation. He went back to the big boss, got us a "better" deal and we were so drained we accepted, and thought to ourselves we would have them cater if we ever had a celebration for our marriage. Its been another 3 months since we accepted the deal. We have not received our money, even though Matt said "it will be coming [our] way ASAP" and its just more and more frustration. I really regret even giving this company a chance. They are crooks, dishonest, lazy, incompetent and over all dont have your best interest at heart. This review comes after over a year of dealing with them and seeing all the errors and lack of care they've put into a customer. They've lost out on a client, on money, and on a good review. I was so excited to host my wedding there, but in the end I'm happy this happened because who knows what my wedding day would have looked like in their hands.

    Amazing to Work With

    We loved working with Jenni. Her and her team made our wedding on Aug 18 2018 so smooth. We had lots of questions and requests as we had our tea ceremony, ceremony and reception at the Hudson. The schedule and organization was top notch. We even comments after the tasting about the food and they delivered! Thank you to Hudson and the team for hosting us, it was so great
