It’s a 135-year-old historic home that’s been totally restored and updated with modern amenities. Inside you’ll find a gorgeous, vintage blank slate with white walls, polished wood floors, and luxurious decor (including chandeliers and a fireplace). The space is large enough to accommodate 35 guests for a seated dinner or 50 guests for a standing reception. P.S. It’s located right on Queen Street, so it’s super easy for your guests to get to by streetcar.
Auberge du Pommier (4150 Yonge Street)

Its interior boasts sophisticated Parisian decor and outside there’s a charming patio area surrounded by greenery that you’ll definitely want to put to use if you’re having a summer wedding. As for space, the entire restaurant can fit up to 145 seated guests, but you can book smaller rooms individually if you’re in the market for something more petite.
Balzac’s Cafe Powerhouse (29 Powerhouse Street)

Balzac’s Powerhouse location is perfectly suited for a romantic celebration, thanks to its eclectic decor and open floor plan.

Its capacity is 50 seated guests or 80 guests for a standing reception. P.S. you can also check out these intimate cafe wedding venues.
The Broadview Hotel (106 Broadview Avenue)
If a boutique hotel wedding venue is right up your alley, but you don’t want to book a massive ballroom, The Broadview Hotel is where to go. This east end boutique space flaunts trendy decor and has a number of spaces you can book for your big day, including the rooftop and restaurant. A total buyout will give you enough space to host 270 guests, but you can book spaces individually for a smaller celebration.
Kimpton Saint George Hotel (280 Bloor Street West)
Kimpton Saint George is another hotel wedding venue in Toronto that’s best suited for small events. It’s located in the heart of downtown, making it easy for your guests to get to (heck they could even stay on-site). Its Peregrine Room is the ideal spot for events and has luxurious, modern decor that makes it pretty much wedding-ready. It has a capacity of 96 guests, so don’t over-invite.
Toronto Wedding Chapel (2 Lola Road)
The aptly-named Toronto Wedding Chapel was made specifically for more intimate ceremonies and celebrations, so it’s definitely earned its spot on this list. Inside you’ll find blank canvas event rooms that you can transform to fit your wedding theme and colour scheme (they’re all pretty flexible, so far as style is concerned). Keep in mind that the venue can only fit up to 30 guests, so you’ll definitely want to keep your guest list short and sweet.
Campbell House Museum (160 Queen Street West)
Love the idea of tying the knot in a historic venue? If you answered yes, Campbell House Museum is an absolute must-see. It boasts Georgian architecture and beautiful period decor inside. If you’d prefer an outdoor wedding, it also has a sprawling lawn that’s large enough for a marquee tent. A full buyout will get you enough space to host 150 guests, but individual rooms are small enough for groups of 20 or so.
The Richmond (477 Richmond Street West)
If a modern loft wedding venue is more your speed, make your way to The Richmond. It’s located in the oh-so-trendy Fashion District and is outfitted with sky-high floor-to-ceiling windows, so you’ll get plenty of natural light for your wedding photos. The interior is a real blank slate, meaning you can keep things minimalist or dress it up with over-the-top decor. It can fit up to 75 seated guests, making it the perfect spot for an intimate wedding.
Cluny Bistro (35 Tankhouse Lane)
The Distillery District has its fair share of beautiful wedding venues, and Cluny Bistro is definitely one of its crown jewels. The Parisian-style restaurant has a gorgeous private room that seats 80, but can be broken into smaller spaces for even tinier events (shout out to the micro weddings). As for decor, you’ll find plenty of exposed brick and patterned wallpaper, along with wooden accents. It’s pretty much wedding-ready, so you won’t have to invest a ton in decor (just remember to purchase your wedding centerpieces).
The Tempered Room (1374 Queen Street West)
Head to Queen Street West and you’ll find The Tempered Room, just a few blocks west of Dufferin. The French cafe has ambient lighting, exposed brick, and an intimate romantic vibe (pretty much everything you could ever want in a venue). It’s only large enough to seat 36 guests, so only invite your nearest and dearest.
