Laid-back, fun, beautiful, and great staff!

Makayla, the venue coordinator for Calamus, assisted us and answered all of our questions for nearly 2.5 years, as we booked our May 29, 2021 wedding in 2019, then ended up having to postpone the reception until May 2022. Makayla was seriously amazing to work with, and we appreciate her professionalism, responsiveness, and flexibility. Although it was not the original plan, Calamus staff allowed us to have an intimate ceremony on one of their bridges on the property on our original wedding day. Peter and Makayla were so accommodating, driving us and our family down to the bridge on the 4x4, bringing us wine, and letting us stay longer than planned to take photos. And then in May 2022 we finally had our big party (reception) and it was AMAZING! Calamus is a laid-back, fun, and beautiful venue, with great staff. We can't wait to come back in future years for wine and pizza at the bistro, and reminisce about the 2 beautiful wedding days we had at Calamus.

Wow, what an amazing venue!!!

Highly highly recommend!! Makayla with Calamus is a Gem! She helped us make our wedding dreams come true. Honestly, for the price you get so much and it's all super personal. Calamus makes you feel like family and planning is a breeze, no stress. If I could get married again I would do so at Calamus.

Amazing Experience

Where do we even begin? Calamus is an absolutely beautiful venue that offers more than you can imagine. From day one of meeting with Makayla, Calamus knocked it out of the park. Makayla walked us through all of our options/choices (for food, activities etc.) and toured us around the winery. She is extremely knowledgeable and answered any questions we had from day one. Peter was also amazing to work with as he hosted our rehearsal. He is very friendly and made everyone feel like family. On our actual wedding day, everything was flawless! The timing of entrances, food and music (905 DJ Co) was awesome and appreciated by everyone. If you are looking into booking a wedding with Calamus, we promise that you will not be disappointed.

A beautiful and memorable location for a semi-outdoors summer wedding

Calamus is a wonderful venue in a beautiful location, and with complementary features (campfire, whiskey & cigar station, and star-gazing observatory!) which make it uniquely memorable. Their barn space, open to the vinyards along one wall, is the perfect mix of open and sheltered. Their partner vendors, the catering and DJ service, provided delicious food and top-notch music choices. On the day of, Mykaila and the rest of the Calamus team kept everything going smoothly so we didn't have to worry about any details ourselves. I've heard that some people find themselves too busy to enjoy their own wedding, but we were able to enjoy our perfect summer wedding to the fullest.

There were a couple hiccoughs in the planning process that left us a bit more stressed than we needed to be. An initial miscommunication about the capacity of the venue left us worried for a time about how to fit everyone, though in the end Calamus accommodated our very specific requests for table arrangements without issue. We were also slightly disappointed with the initial tasting from the caterers, but when we expressed this to Mykaila she collected our feedback and arranged a second tasting for us. The food at the second tasting (and the final event) was excellent, and exactly what we wanted.

Wedding of our dreams at Calamus

We started our wedding planning journey in spring 2021 - Calamus was the first venue we visited and we instantly fell in love! The venue coordinator Makalya is responsive, thoughtful, proactive and organized - and just a really nice human! She made sure we were in the right place at the right time so we could focus on enjoying the moment. The staff were so pleasant and gave amazing service to us and our guests. The "all inclusive" package had everything we wanted - and even more - with special touches that our guests loved. Our guests raved about the food, which was hot and plentiful! The lawn games, ice wine smore favours, and cigar/scotch station were amazing. Adam from the 905DJ Co, which Calamus partners with, had amazing energy and knew exactly our taste in music. The setting was lush and green and the whole day just rolled smoothly. Thank you so much Makayla and Calamus for going above and beyond to make our wedding unforgettable! We will be back to visit soon!

We love Calamus!

Calamus was the venue of choice for our wedding this past year in September 2019. We elected the stargazing package and couldn't be more pleased with the results. Having the added bonuses of the Chronos observatory and bonfire as available amenities for our guest was awesome!

The staff at Calamus were very kind and friendly to work with - you really get the feeling of being amongst family. Since taking ownership, Peter and Rose are really building something special that cannot really be described but experienced instead.

The wine is also really great! My wife is a big fan of the barrel kissed chardonnay and I'm a huge fan of the double barreled Cab Sauvignon. We had the 2016 Meritage blend as our red table wine and our guest really enjoyed during dinner.

Highly recommend for a wine tour, bistro vist and wedding venue.

Beautiful venue

We have just recently book this as our venue. The staff was very supportive and very prompt when answering my questions. It is such a beautiful venue right in the middle of the vineyard with a walking tour absolutely stunning. Also recent construction and future design is stunning.

Magical wedding Venue

My pictures don’t do it justice. The staff at Calamus were so friendly and accommodating, they added so many nice touches, the food was amazing and customized to our preference, they were great with food allergies, and the experience was very unique. We had star gazing, a wine tour, and a bonfire with ice wine smores. There were many great spots nearby for pictures, they had back up plans for cold/wet weather and made sure the wedding party was well taken care of (made sure our food was always hot if we had to leave for pictures or to chat with guests etc. The bar was well stocked and they provided the favours and DJ. I cannot express how magical our wedding day felt thanks to the staff at Calamus.

From start to finish this vendor was exceptional. They helped us make our dreams come true with a rustic, romantic, setting. The food, lawn games and service was amazing and the wines are some of the best we have ever had!
