I recently got married at the The Glen Erin Inn on May 26th, 2012. I had been planning the event with Faye since November 2010. The wedding day was beyond what I expected.
DECOR - The decor was amazing (I only paid a total of $500, which included chair covers and I made my own centerpieces). When I walked into the creditvalley room, it was breathtaking. The reception/bar area was tastefully organized and there was plenty of space for all of our guests.
FOOD - The food was fantastic. Everything came out hot and tasted amazing. Our menu included soup, salad, a main course, and dessert. We decided to do a Beef Striploin and stuffed chicked as the main. Everything came out hot and right on time. Our guests complimented the food, service, and hall all night. Maurizio was our event manager for the night and made sure we had everything we needed. He went above and beyond for us, and we couldn't be more thankful. At one point, I forgot one of our guests was a strict vegetarian, Maurizio already took care of it and made a special dish for him. All the food had flavour and tasted exactly the same as when we had our sample dinner.
I never wanted a standard cookie cutter wedding. I wanted an intimate hall with windows and separate reception area. I received everything I wanted and then some. I have guests telling me that this was the best wedding they have ever been to and some went even as far as saying they will never attend a wedding at a banquet hall again. The guests had the option of reserving a room at the Inn that night, which many opted to do.
GROUNDS - I had a park pass for photos on Lakeshore, however, I opted to take the photos at the Inn. I am really glad I did. It was so convenient and my photographer found some amazing spots. She couldn't stop raving about the great location and the great photos I would get.
INN - We had family from overseas at our home, so we opted to stay at the Inn for a few nights to get some rest and relaxation before the big day. We stayed in a suite at the Carriage House. There is a king bed with a big fluffy duvet and really comfortable pillows. Our room had a jacuzzi tub with his and her sinks. We had a sitting area with a dining table. This proved to be extremely helpful when our wedding party needed somewhere to sit and chat. Lol
My overall experience was amazing. I cannot recommend this venue enough to people. My guests cannot stop talking about my wedding. Faye was so fun and professional to deal with. I changed my wedding date 3 times, and signed 3 different contracts. I contacted by email with a thousand questions, some just one email. She replied right away and really went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed. The best part was, that I did not break the bank. The prices they charge are extremely reasonable for what you get. If you have a chance to get married at Glen Erin Inn, you will be extremely happy you did. Planning a wedding is so stressful, but everyone at Glen Erin Inn really makes the experience fun and exciting.
I will post some pictures once I receive them from my photographer.
