Amazing amazing amazing!

Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. It was not only LGBTQ+ friendly but also incredibly family-oriented, creating an atmosphere of love and acceptance that made our special day even more meaningful.

The food at our wedding was absolutely amazing, and our guests couldn't stop raving about it. The culinary team exceeded our expectations, and every dish was a culinary masterpiece.

Makayla, the host of our event, is simply the most amazing human ever. She went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect and made us feel incredibly special. Her warmth and attention to detail made our wedding day unforgettable.

In the end, our wedding was a dream come true, filled with love, joy, and the support of our friends and family. We're so grateful for the incredible experience we had, and we couldn't have asked for a better celebration of our love.

The most incredible wedding venue! June 2024 Wedding

My husband and I recently got married at Calamus on June 28, 2024. We were absolutely thrilled with how our evening turned out, and our guests couldn't stop raving about the amazing venue. We are incredibly grateful for all the help from Makayla and the Calamus staff, from the start of our wedding planning to the very end. They answered all our questions promptly.

The Calamus package truly has everything you need! Everyone loved the dinner, the scotch and cigar bar, the outdoor games, the bonfire, and the observatory. Working with 905DJCO, included in our package, was fantastic—they kept the evening lively with great music.

Thank you, Calamus, for making our day unforgettable!

September 2023

We got married in September 2023 at Calamus and it was the most perfect day!! We booked our date a couple of years before and working with Makayla, Peter, and team from the beginning was a dream. They are incredibly responsive, professional, accommodating, reassuring, and friendly. They are a full service venue that really takes care of it all, and their packages are straightforward with no hidden fees. We wanted to make sure our day was stress-free, and that's exactly what it was! We were in great hands leading up to the day and on the day of. The staff were all organized, professional, and kind. The food was incredible (the tasting experience before hand was so awesome!). Our guests were raving about the whole experience! We loved that there were activities for our guests to take part in besides dancing. The grounds of Calamus are beautifully kept and need no additional decor. Staring out into the vineyard was magical. We really can't begin to thank Calamus enough for the incredible attention and service they provided for us. We would do the day over again 100 times if we could - it was so special. Thank you Makayla, Peter, and team!!

September 2023 wedding

We are so happy with our decision to get married at Calamus! What an absolutely fun venue. Besides the gorgeous location, amazing hospitality, and fantastic food, there were so many fun activities that kept our guests entertained and made so many beautiful memories. A lot of the extras included in the wedding package are so unique, like being able to see the stars in their observatory, a cigar bar, and being driven around in a side-by-side to get to different locations for our photos. It was all around such a fantastic and fun day with so much to take in, and so much to enjoy. Our guests are still raving about how much fun they had. Our wedding coordinator Makayla was wonderful and made everything stress-free on the day of the wedding. Thank you to the whole team at Calamus!

Incredible Venue!!

Makayla and the Van-Helsdingen family go above and beyond to make your wedding day incredible! The website does not do the venue justice. The place is beautiful and the staff are very kind. This place is a one stop shop and all the extra adds in that are included in the total price, add great value and save you money in the long run.

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!
