    La La Land Magical Wedding Reception

    We held our wedding reception here last weekend - everything was beyond amazing! It was a wonderful day and evening. Finally arriving at EG in our limo was so surreal, seeing our marquee, our posters, and the red carpet treatment - Spectacular! :) Guests also mentioned enjoying ... View more arriving to these VIP details. Can't wait to see our professional photos! Everything went well and smoothly. The ballroom was fabulous, the ambiance, decor, overall setting was perfect for our La La Land movie theme. We even had the movie playing through dinner. We received many compliments on how magical and enchanting the setting was and many compliments to the venue. Everyone was in awe, especially loving our room reveal with the magical draw of the curtains and seeing just us from the mezzanine during our first dance - what a special unique feature for sure! Great job to Ari and team on tech/lights/AV that worked with our wedding planning/coordination team and the rest of our vendors to set the scene! The purple up lights and warm lights at the front of the room were spot on, as well as the spotlight during certain points in the evening. And thank you again to Sarah and crew for adding the gorgeous chairs, it really pulled our sweetheart table together. I couldn't get over how beautiful it was, so many gorgeous details - still can't! :) We felt that Joe was super attentive, checking in every so often to ensure we were attended to. Our glasses were never empty for dinner, the servers, the team were amazing. Joe even made sure we got back to our seats to ensure our meals were still hot, so we could enjoy them. The bartender, I didn't catch his name, went out of his way to serve me (the bride) 1 last drink even though it was a few mins over time as they were cleaning up. Didn't see the self serve water set up though? We may have just missed it. We also didn't get a chance to take a look at our late night station, but feedback was good. General feedback we received regarding the food was wonderful. Food was so delicious, so many guests raved at how satisfied they were, having beyond their fill of food and drink (especially important to us and our parents) leaving with hearts and bellies full and having had a fantastic time. I was able to chat with Neil and Mark at the end of the evening and expressed my thanks in their being there alongside the EG team. Mark was great with helping with a couple lighters during our sparkler photos and made sure to hold the door for us each time we entered/exited. Neil was great even from the Thursday we practiced our dance, to the very end of the evening. I asked him to pass on our thanks and appreciation to all the servers/staff for attending to us and our guests all evening - hopefully they were able to enjoy some of the flowers we left behind. Though it got really stressful towards the end of the planning, we felt that the evening went super smooth overall! Sarah was very prompt and responsive to all our questions and emails leading up to the big day. She made sure to provide us suggestions, alongside our wedding planner and captured all details on our function plan to ensure timing and details were perfect. Thank you so much again to all EG staff - especially to Sarah - for all your help, recommendations throughout the planning process and all the thoughtful well wishes. Eglinton Grand - what an exquisite venue for those who love old Hollywood, art deco glam details + amazing food and drink!! Book for your wedding, you won't regret it :))

    Awesome venue and excellent service!

    The entire Eglinton Grand team are absolutely incredible! Teresa (who we booked with and provided our contract) was very responsive and answered our questions promptly and was really clear about the costs which helped with our budget. Sarah (who we worked with on event details) ... View more was friendly and very responsive and provided helpful suggestions. She also flexible and we are so happy she let us come early to do the Chinese Tea Ceremony. We also liked how she would send us follow emails after we met which helped keep us organized. Joe (who handled operations at the reception) was an absolute godend. Many of our guests specically mentioned him as he went around to every table ensuring everyone was ok. Everything from the first dance "reveal" to how great the food and wine tasted to how remarkable the service was and how beautiful the venue is - we couldn't be happier!! We've received so many compliments from friends and family. One said it was the best steak they ever had at a wedding. Several said the first dance reveal was the most memorable entrance they have seen at a wedding. All of our guests loved the marque wording and the movie posters - they really made our wedding special. The Eglinton Grand is truly a spectacular venue. We highly recommend this venue!
