Most recent review
We held our Wedding at The Eglinton Grand in September 2021. We originally booked the venue in June 2020, but with the pandemic, there was so much uncertainty with whether our event would go on or how it would be affected. This meant we were in very frequent communication with our Venue rep, Teresa DiPietro. For the next year and a half, she was very professional, kind, accommodating and provided great customer service. Down to every last detail, even in the hours leading up to the wedding, Teresa went above and beyond to ensure our event was a success. She was a true delight to work with and made the experience enjoyable despite the circumstances. On the night of, everything went very smoothly and our guests were so impressed with the classiness of the venue, the A/V, entertainment, as well as the food and bar service. Many of them specifically complimented the Operations Manager Joe, who was a great host and was making sure everyone was having a good time. There were so many other great Eglinton Grand staff along the way from the tech, food and beverage, host and managerial teams who assisted in making the night exceptional and were extremely accommodating. For two people who met in Film School 10 years earlier, we fell in love with the idea of getting married at a former movie theatre. Through the pandemic, we began to lose hope we would have the night of our dreams. But our expectations of the night were exceeded thanks to The Eglinton Grand and we will remember it for the rest of our lives. We have since had multiple guests tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We would recommend The Eglinton Grand to anyone else looking for a unique, memorable venue. Thanks to the staff for an outstanding experience!
