    Get married at Whistle Bear!

    Our wedding day was amazing!
    We made the best decision ever to have our wedding at Whistle Bear, so many of our guests were blown away! We have heard so many compliments about the staff being so friendly and helpful, the venue is stunning, and everyone loved the food!

    The coordinators helped us lead the way through the process from the very beginning, and their prompt replies put us at ease. They think about EVERY detail, so we didn’t have to worry about missing something.

    Our day-of Concierge and Maître-De were a dream team, thank you for taking care of us and making us feel so special!
    They went above and beyond, they were always there if we needed anything and all I can do is smile looking back on that day!

    Amazing venue, amazing food, and a truly magical experience

    Whistlebear was the last venue i went to see, after seeing almost 10 others prior. I was annoyed at first as they wouldn't send me their prices and packages in advance and it was the only venue that didn't. I understood after though, it is because they listen to your needs and budget and can make a package that is flexible to your needs and don't want you to think they can't in advance by sending you their most popular packages.
    They are very flexible, the venue is absolutely gorgeous and the food.....WOW! We knew what to expect as we had our taste testing before, but our guests were just amazed and still tell us how awesome it was. You don't have to worry about your allergic or special dietary needs guests as they have done this a million times over and can handle anything on the spot.
    The taco and poutine late night station was amazing (again, the tacos we would have never known they could do as it wasn't listed as an option on their page) but we're so glad we asked! The only problem was that we were still so full from supper!!
    I would do my wedding 1000 times over if i could do it here again! Thank you to Leah and her team to make our day to incredibly special.

    Felt like royalty

    Right from day one WB was professional, quick to respond, and dog friendly!
    We were always treated like royalty when we walked in the door.
    Our consultant Leah is amazing, and the girls who worked our rehearsal with us and the day of, Sam and Mel, blew our minds! (We love you Sam!).
    The food is still being talked about, and same with the quality of service.
    I wish we could get married there again!!

    Dreamy Wedding Venue

    We really enjoyed the planning process with Whistle Bear. I highly recommend it! If you are looking for a venue with staff that tend to guests very well, this is your spot! We were in the forest room and it was by far the prettiest. Having a white room makes a clean and great pallet to work with! The balcony is beautiful, especially if you get a beautiful sunset. Food was enjoyed by all guests.
    At times it took a few days to get a response for different reasons but overall they made our day perfect.
