A Night To Remember
October 19,2019 will be a day remembered by many.
We couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding and it couldn't have been made possible without the Eglinton Grand venue and staff.
The venue is unique and has a beautiful history. All the details were perfectly place. The atmosphere had a certain je ne sais quoi about it.
However, the extraordinary team of people is what makes the venue what it is. They all have played such monumental part in making our day so very special.
A special Thank you goes to Teresa who was there for us every step of the way supporting and guiding us, giving us genuine advice and help
The food was spectacular, our signature drink Turned out Perfectly! And the service thourought the night was Stellar...such friendly, warm people. We couldn't ask for more.
Thank you Eglinton Grand for making our dreams come true.
PS. We will for sure come back for our vow renewal party!
A smooth, stress free day
They Made our Dream Wedding Come to Life
Everyone was amazed by the theme and the venue and how different it is from anything they have ever been to.
An now to the most important part which is the people at the venue.
We dealt with Sarah and Paula and we have no words to describe how AMAZING they have been throughout the process.
Not only would they accommodate the panic calls the week of the wedding. But they actually suggest things to make our life easier and our wedding even more magical. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and are genuinely helping out like they are our own wedding planners.
Even Artur the master of the sound and light at the venue was happy to jump on calls with us and accommodate all the ideas we had to make that night perfect. And it was just that.
The night went ahead without hiccups, and even if there were any which i am sure there was, the team there did an amazing job of handling it.
In short, this place is magical and unique and so are the people working there that happily made our dream wedding come to life.
Expect Nothing Short Of Amazing
From the venue's elegant ambiance to the attention to detail from VP, tech support to service staff, the Eglinton Grand never falters.
Timeless & Unique Venue!!!
The venue itself is gorgeous and created for us a very unique wedding day that our guests loved. Our favourite part was being “alone” for our first dance…. So many of our guests told us they cried during our it because of how special of a moment they felt like they were witnessing.
For cocktail hour we had 3 stations and guests commented that there was a ton of food. On top of that a 4 course meal and a late night station, so guests raved about how great the food was and how much of it there was. We were concerned there may not be enough but we were very wrong.
The ceremony space is simple yet pretty, we did not add any personal decor but photos still came out beautiful.
I could go on and on but overall if you’re considering having your wedding here I would recommended it a million times. It is a decision you won’t regret and your wedding photos will be very timeless😊
Great wedding day!
Welcome To "The Eglinton Way" Holiday Fashion Show Being Held At "The Eglinton Grand" Out In Toronto, Ontario Canada!
With ME, we have Terese Hatter from Beauty Tree who was one (1) of the vendors out on Eglinton Avenue West along the LRT (Light Rapid Transit) who was involved in the show and she did all of the makeup for the models and works as a Medical Esthetician in her private practice as well!
Some of the other vendors that were present include:
- Enrico Hair Design
- Secret Service Medical Aesthetics
- Le Reve Skin Clinic
The purpose of the event was to further promote the businesses along Eglinton Avenue West that have suffered so much during the Covid Pandemic Crisis and the LRT (Light Rapid Transit) Construction and Bring Them All Back To Life, plus attract New Businesses to the area as well!
In Fact: My good friend, Guillermo from Guillermo's Creative Hair Studio happens to be one (1) of the business owners from the event's area, but sadly was Not Able To Attend The Event due to work constraints.
I want to personally Thank her for participating in the event and in my video as well!

A great venue!
A more exciting venue!
The admin staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the booking and planning process. The coordinator made sure everything was on schedule and went smoothly, which is much appreciated. We had added tequila to the bar, and ran out sooner than expected, so we were kindly offered the option to add a couple more.
We had a few early guests who were allowed to wait inside, rather than by the busy street. Then when we arrived, the chef kindly delivered us a personal bottle of champagne and appetizers. We were starving due to a busy day, and this thoughtful gesture blew us away!
The kitchen staff made sure the wine was always topped up, never had to ask. All tables were provided excellent service. Overall the food was phenomenal!!! We got a lot of positive feedback from the guests. Bartenders were friendly and attentive, and all other staff members seemed friendly, even during the pre-wedding setup.
Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they've been to, and that says a lot. Much thanks to the wonderful staff at The Eglinton Grand for making it happen!
Best Wedding Venue!
