We got married at the MacLaren this February and it was the best decision. The Staff was very organized, responsive to any of our questions, professional and willing to help out with anything we needed. They do limit the list of catering companies you can hire as they do not have a full kitchen. But the list caters to a diverse range of budgets and the MacLaren knows that these vendors know how to work with their venue so there won’t be any surprises which is great. It is absolutely stunning inside and you don’t need a ton of decorations which is nice! Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the venue. I would 10/10 recommend them to any of my family and friends!
We had an amazing experience getting married at the MacLaren. It is such a beautiful location on its own which means we had to add very little decor and didn’t even need to leave the property to do photos. The staff were very helpful along the way, ensuring all of our needs were met. It was clear they have hosted many weddings before us, because everything flowed smoothly and they had quick answers to any questions we had. The courtyard was the perfect spot for our ceremony to take place. It was a very hot and humid September day so I loved that our guests were able to stay cool indoors until just before the ceremony started and then make their way outside. It was great to be able to have an outdoor ceremony and then easily move everyone indoors for the reception portion. The reception space was large, permitting the caterers room to set-up, easy movement for guests and a large space for dancing. We used many of the vendors (ie. @cravingsfinefood) the MacLaren recommended and this made everything seamless as the vendors were experienced with the space and this meant very little work or planning on our end. Thanks for making it such a memorable day!
The MacLaren Art Centre was the absolute best choice for our wedding!! It was so gorgeous from the giant windows, to the gallery walls, to the exposed brick and the hardwood floors. Jess and the team at the MacLaren were so organized and really helped to make our day fantastic. Our guests kept raving about how beautiful and unique our venue was! I would 100% recommend the MacLaren Art Centre to anyone and I hope I get to go back for more weddings! 😀
