Beautiful venue with great event staff.
We held our wedding at Studio 96 - both the ceremony and reception - and were so pleased with every aspect of it. Sylvia was awesome to work with, a very clear communicator she helped walk us through many of the details and coordinated with our other vendors to make the day run incredibly smoothly. The venue itself is beautiful, with all sorts of small areas with comfortable seating to have quiet moments, and the perfect sized dance floor and main hall to party it up. Studio 96 was one of the stars of our wedding day, and we would absolutely recommend it as a wedding venue.Sent on 24/09/2019

A beautiful venue! (Ceremony and Reception)
This venue is unbelievably beautiful. It was the perfect size for our 96 guest list (they can accommodate more). It has beautiful architectural arches, a fake 'stained-glass' frame to allow you to project a picture on the wall, and lots of bohemian and eclectic mirrors and furniture to give it a comfortable and intimate feel. We immediately knew we wanted our wedding here as soon as we saw it. Sylvia was our venue manager-she gave us a lot of advice when needed and knew the ins and outs on events, which we appreciated in the wedding preparations and planning. She was like our wedding planner, and that it important to keep in mind when booking this venue. It made the rentals/catering/sound/decorating/liquor-bartending planning that much easier for us.
I know that our guests also loved the venue. It makes a nice impression-nice lobby, beautiful double door entrance (allowing privacy before the bride walks through), lots of space for a dance floor, an original brickwall basement for cocktail/appetizers while the main floor is being flipped for the reception. The washrooms are very modern and new, updated air-conditioning, and they provide a bose sound system for us to use for the ceremony and reception (just plugged in with my laptop playlists).
The weather was luckily rain-free, so we were able to take pictures right outside and the lighting was very nice with the trees/bushes in the background. Borden park is super close and we were able to take wedding pictures there.
We don't regret paying the extra money to have the wedding here (I don't take that lightly, since I know that there are cheaper places than this one). We wanted a venue that allowed us to have both the ceremony and reception in one place, and the ease of doing both here was seamless. We highly recommend this location!Sent on 31/07/2019

It was the Ceremony of my dreams
There are no words to describe how absolutely amazing Diana is and how breathtaking Studio 96 is. We fell in love with this venue the moment we walked through the door. It is a hidden Gem in Edmonton! Diana was responsive to any questions we had and she helped make our day go off without a hitch. The decor in Studio 96 is stunning and it makes the venue feel so romantic and chic. All of our guest have told us how they all loved the venue. Studio 96 was the best vendor we booked for our wedding and I couldn't be more happier with how our day turned out. Thanks Diana and Studio 96 for the amazing memories you helped us createSent on 13/09/2018

Perfect Edmonton Venue
We had our wedding at Studio 96 in March 2018. I cannot say enough good things about the venue and the head Coordinator Diana. Our wedding was absolutely perfect there. It is such a unique venue, with ample parking for guests. When booking a wedding at the Studio, you can setup the night before, and pack up the next morning. We had both the ceremony and reception at the same place, and Diana and her team took care of the entire room flip. The space is perfect for an intimate setting, and has great sound to have a great dance party into the evening! The bar setup is really good and provides ample space. The downstairs is all exposed brick and a great backdrop for photos. We absolutely loved working with Diana, she made our day absolutely perfect! We have heard nothing but wonderful feedback from our guests, many of which even mentioned how lovely Diana was to get to know during our wedding weekend! Thank you to the entire Studio 96 team for making our wedding so perfect for us!Sent on 26/03/2018
