When initially searching for reception venues, determined to spend as little as possible, I had settled for having to have our reception at a typical banquet hall– you know, with 3 other weddings being held in the same building, limp lukewarm banquet hall food, sad banquet hall carpet and dated wall decor. But we found The Warehouse online and decided to give it a look in person. We absolutely fell in love with the place- it felt so refreshingly modern, clean, and filled with possibilities when compared to the gaudy halls we'd viewed so far. I still thought the cost wouldn't work for us, but after working with our contact (Rebecca, at the time), we found a price point that worked better for us. My fiance and I decided to go for it, and I'm so incredibly glad we made that decision.
When you're on a tight budget and you look at photos of other events held here, you may feel like you won't be able to afford it– but don't let that put you off! Though they don't have in-house catering, they do have packages with outside vendors that are very reasonable for the quality that you get. Our package was with the Food Dudes, and our guests raved about the experience throughout the night and afterward.
Later on in the process we worked with Carly. I had been conditioned to expect to face limitations of what we wanted to do at every corner, but she was so enthusiastic about the event, and flexible and accommodating to our needs. Working with her was a wonderful experience!
Since booking 11 months prior they had renovated the space, adding a wall and 3 sets of barn doors, between the cocktail and main areas, which made me love the space even more. The main area is surrounded by tall white curtains (essentially a draped look) which helped us save a lot on linen decor.
The location within Downsview Park is also convenient, as we had our photos taken in a beautiful trail nearby, although it did require a bit of a walk.
The only aspect I didn't love was the partnership with The Magen Boys, meaning I was stuck spending more than I would have preferred on A/V costs, even with price adjustments.
Overall I kept getting comments of how great the venue was throughout the night and I'm so glad we picked The Warehouse to have our reception.

Incredible staff and venue!
Our wedding was at The Warehouse on June 16 and it was the most perfect day, largely due to the incredible staff at The Warehouse! Carly was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made us feel comfortable and well taken care of throughout the entire wedding planning process, right up until the day of our wedding. She answered every email and phone call promptly, and made sure to address all of my questions fully and with no judgement. I would recommend this venue to everyone looking for a space to rent. The staff were all on top of their game and our entire day went off without a hitch. I will never be able to thank them enough for all they did for my husband and I.

Great venue, bad management
1 is for the appeal of the actual space. You can also get a similar look at the York’s Mills Gallery. Our wedding started off like any others, chaotic and overwhelming however during our cocktail hour that’s when we noticed the issue. Mind you, we did not have a planner we had a point person which was a friend of ours. The bar had served the wrong Cognac (we had paid extra for an upgrade Cognac and let’s be real with all the extra taxes this upgrade didnt come cheap) and when we inquired the bartender insisted it was the right one. Busy with our agenda(this is where we made the mistake of not following up right away about the issue) it’s cocktail hour, that means greeting guests and taking photos, we did not have time to follow up. Entrusting the staff to get it right was our biggest mistake, into our dining time the bar (now inside the dining space) the bar was still serving the wrong Cognac! Beyond frustrated and confused, we reached out to our coordinator friend to follow up with the manager on duty. The manager on duty has no idea of this and was positive it was correct until we insisted she double check, after having called the owner of the venue, it was confirmed indeed that it was (the owner’s) their fault. The owner Jordan had ordered the wrong Cognac, and day of never bothered to check the stock and neither did any of the staffs. The worst part of all this was not only had we had to pay extra for the Cognac (which wasn’t their typical stock and had to be ordered 10 days in advance) from the time it took them to correct the mistake, the bar had even stopped serving Cognac to our guest, telling them they were out. This was absolute humiliating and embarrassing but of course try telling that to Jordan, who admits it was his mistake, but apparently has to put his business and staff first. By ensuring his staff are paid accordingly since they still serviced our event and as per Jordan’s word “you guys still drank the alcohol” (regardless if they had served us the wrong one initially). They eventually got us our correct Cognac but by then they had already embarrassed us and wasted much of our bar time. The owner never followed up with us right away, his excuse was he needed to take the time to talk to everyone (but not us) to see exactly what happened. It was clear as water. The owner Jordan admits to having mistakenly ordered the wrong Cognac, his staff never bothered to check day before or day off however insinuated that we should have noticed sooner. They made us feel like since we were 1 of 3 weddings that weekend, that having something go wrong is almost guaranteed. And of course, to the man that hosts weddings every weekend, he understood nothing about the embarrassment we went through especially with knowing how important a wedding day is to people. It’s once in a lifetime! Yes, the mistake was corrected, but you can not buy us back the time you wasted especially when it’s on our tab and the embarrassment you caused us! The biggest slap on the face was his (lack thereof) compensation to make up for what he deemed not a “big deal” since he rectified it right away and had to rush out of is home that evening to correct his own mistake. After my partner spent an hour on the phone with him it’s seems Jordan’s argument was that he came through for us, and we should grateful nothing more happened that could have “ruined”’our wedding. So here’s a few things to remember when and if you choose to book with this venue;
1. Get a planner! if you don’t have one, make sure to get a coordinator that can commit his/her time seriously and put being a coordinator above being a guest. This way he/she can check over all the details of your wedding day of. Because apparently, it’s also your job especially if you what everything to be to done correctly.
2. Finger crossed nothing goes wrong that has to do with the venue because as long as all the staffs are on the clock and working, you have to pay up regardless of any errors. Unless you want to put your wedding on hold while they attend to the error, because you can press pause In the middle of a wedding then as Jordan so subtly puts it, if we want to go down the road of placing blame it could also come down to you not doing your part to ensure your own wedding is running as it should.
3. And should something go wrong, just take whatever Jordan offers you because at the end this is an independently own venue, there’s no one else above him. So if he truly doesn’t care about how he’d embarrassed you then, suck it up. Because in the end be grateful he reached out to you and attempted to rectify his mistake.
The Warehouse's reply:
thank you you for hosting your wedding with us and the thorough review. We are deeply sorry that the wrong cognac was served at your event and as explained during our lengthy phone conversation that the error was rectified within 20 minutes of it being brought to our attention. We did provide you with a very reasonable and gracious credit back consisting of a discount on the room rental, complimentary bottles of cognac as well as a discount on your bar package. It’s unfortunate that you do not feel we were able to rectify the problem and the outcome of all the credits was not satisfactory.
We wish you all all the best and hope to see you at future events
