    We selected the Eglinton Grand as our venue for our wedding. It was the first location we scouted, and as both of us are big movie fans, it was the only option after we saw it. The location itself is beautiful as is. When you see your name on the marquee with the red carpet set ... View more up and the lights on, it really blows you away! The inside is gorgeous. The lobby is large enough to host your guests as they arrive. We had our wedding on the stage in the main hall. It was setup beautifully to host our 150 guests (who fit in easily). While our guests enjoyed cocktails in the upper mezzanine, the main hall was flipped for dinner, quickly and without incident. The evening went perfectly. The audio visual team there (we worked with Ari) was fantastic. He worked with the DJ and our MC to organize speeches and monitor sound levels. They just spoke briefly before the wedding and things went so smoothly you would swear it was rehearsed! We also had a video that we made which played before the wedding, and it was displayed perfectly. The sound was fantastic. We really cannot say enough about how amazing the AV was. Our DJ was Bryan Taylor from Sole Power Productions. They were recommended to us by the Eglinton Grand, and we can see why. They worked flawlessly together. Bryan was fantastic, and took in all our suggestions and formed the perfect playlist for our event. The dancefloor was in use all night! The food was amazing. I can honestly say everything we had that day was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Our guests were still talking about how good the food was the next day. Neil and the entire serving staff were beyond pleasant and kept perfect time. They made sure each guest was taken care of, and still paid extra attention to us! Our day of function manager, Joe, was great. He checked in regularly and made sure everything was running to our standards. We only required some minor tweaks throughout the evening as he and his staff were already following our schedule/instructions (which we previously provided) to perfection, but he happily and quickly responded. Leading up to the event, Sarah, the event manager, made sure we had every detail nailed. She didn’t force us into any specific design, and any suggestions she made were either something we didn’t think of or were to make the evening even better. She couldn’t have been more pleasant, and was beyond accommodating! We would highly recommend the Eglinton Grand for your venue.
