    Truly is a Hidden Gem

    Our wedding here was everything we hoped it would be! Rustic, beautiful, simple, worry-free. All thanks to Donna and Molly.
    This venue provided us with flexibility that you can't find elsewhere. It saved us so much money bringing our own alcohol, and meant so much to us to have our dog with us on our big day. Our package included an officiant, flowers/bouquets, decor/centerpieces, buffet food, non-alcohol drinks/mixes, and even photographer (which we opted out) - there was very little left for us to worry about, and their pricing was extremely reasonable compared to commercial venues.
    The property is gorgeous with peach trees and vineyard, there is no shortage of beauty for photo backdrops and space for guests to roam. We had seated dinner and dancing in the barn (for 100 guests), ceremony, lawn games, and firepit outside. Everyone had a blast and we didn't want the day to be over.
    Thank you Donna and Molly for creating the wedding of our dreams within our budget!

    Smooth and simple

    From the moment we first went to see the place to the end of the wedding night Donna and Molly made things very simple and easy. They took care of absolutely everything for us. The venue, the officiant (Donna), food, dessert, photographer. Absolutely amazing place and I would recommend to anyone!

    Exactly what we were looking for

    This was exactly what we were looking for - a rustic, outdoor, farm-style wedding. Donna and Molly provided everything from planning, decorations, flowers, ceremony, cake, bartender, and catering. All we had to do was bring the alcohol and PAL license. We also opted to hire our own photographer, DJ and shuttle bus for guests. We had the ceremony + cocktails outside and dinner + dancing in the lower barn room since it was pretty hot in July. There's private washrooms for guests and bridal suite with another bathroom. Everything was provided at a very reasonable price and we would highly recommend Hidden Gem Weddings.

    Amazing car themed wedding

    Our wedding was amazing! Donna and her team catered to our every whim. We felt completely at home. The food was amazing and property is gorgeous. Our guests are still complementing us on what an amazing and relaxed day it was months later!
