    I highly recommend the RCMI for anyone looking to get married downtown Toronto. We chose the RCMI as we are members at the club and had already experienced many wonderful events there. They have multiple rooms/options you can take advantage of. We had our cocktail reception in the library and the reception in the large event space. We also booked out all 9 of there hotel rooms which was a great treat for our guests.

    Because the RCMI is already so beautiful we saved by not having to add much more for decor. Everything went perfectly as planned during the evening, the food was amazing. and our live band kept people dancing till 1 am.

    Highly recommend

    If you want a very beautiful building with elegant and tasteful arquitecture, excellent customer service and food, this is the venue to choose from. RCMI will give you the tranquility of knowing that everything will be fine. The staff help us with along the way with the details and gave us experienced advise. They accommodated us with our food and liquor preferences. In general a wonderful experience from the beginning to the end that it is the next day because we rent one of their fantasy suites

    RCMI exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Natalie was a gem to work from day one. She, along with the RCMI staff executed our big day perfectly. I could not be happier with the service, the atmosphere and overall experience!

    My husband and I celebrated our wedding at the RCMI and we were overwhelmed by their service from our first meeting. In Toronto, it is very easy to get overwhelmed with venue options. As soon as we met with Kathryn & Natalie, we immediately knew we wanted to have our wedding with them. We had 80 guests, which was a perfect fit for their reception and meeting rooms. The staff made our experience so simple and easy. I can't say enough about Natalie. She is attentive, knowledgeable, and so very personable. We trusted her with this most important day, and our trust was well placed. The food, décor, and venue space were fantastic. We were able to stay in a beautiful suite the night before and night of the wedding. This made our experience even easier and stress free. If you are looking for an elegant, intimate and memorable wedding, please don't overlook this gem in Toronto.
