Most recent review
We absolutely loved our wedding at Enoch Turner this July. Stacy and her team were great to work with and executed our plans perfectly. ETS is a very popular venue, but it isnt a cookie-cutter place with a menu of packages. Beyond choosing from their preferred list of caterers, its up to you to design and create the event that you want. That being said, we were extremely pleased with our wedding and can offer some pro tips: -Catering: When choosing a caterer, look no further than En Ville. Sommer met with us right away, asked us about our story, and designed a menu that incorporated our favourite foods and significant meals in our relationship. We cannot stress enough how smoothly catering went from creating the menu, tasting, and coordinating day-of. We also cannot stress enough how delicious the food was and how impressed our guests and we were with the expert professionalism of Sommer and her team. -Dcor: Let the natural space and features of Enoch Turner do most of the decorating for you. We had a small guest list (75) and were able to have our ceremony in the original schoolhouse room. We didnt add a single decoration to that room and it suited us (2 teachers) perfectly. We added minimal decorations to the foyer (seating chart, family wedding photos, guestbook). In the reception hall, we had long tables with simple greenery and candles to complement the green posts. We put the bridal partys flowers in vases in the windows behind our sweetheart table. Go for all of the stringed lights- the room has beautiful natural lighting and they create a warm glow for the evening and dance party. Dont stress about over-decorating the space- its already gorgeous! -Bar: When planning the party part of the reception, we were a bit concerned about our guests leaving the dance floor to visit the bar in the foyer. We had En Ville set up a satellite bar next to the dance floor to solve that problem and everyone danced the night away. -You need an alcohol permit (SOP) to serve liquor. Its easy to get online. However, if you want your guests to be able to drink outside, youll need an indoor-outdoor permit, and you have to apply for that 30 days in advance. Youll also need to supply a drawing of the space, which ETS can forward to you. Just dont leave the permit too late We will admit that we found the venue aspects of our wedding planning daunting, but we hope these tips are helpful!
