Added to the venue, which if that isn't enough, is the amazing service we received from the venue manager, Christine Beck. She is straight forward, honest, clear, caring and utterly professional. Her advice is solid and trusted; she genuinely cares about helping the bride and groom save money, recommending excellent and reasonably priced vendors. We couldn't have asked for a better venue or service and we would heartily recommend the beautiful Heintzman House for weddings, and events and celebrations in general.
I would be amiss not to mention Christine, the facilities coordinator at the HH. From the day we came for a tour until the day after our wedding when we came to pick up a few leftover things (oopsie) she was nothing but attentive and accommodating. She was patient while we got our forms, permits and money together, and she was able to recommend local vendors.
On a personal level, planning a same-sex wedding can be trying at times - we had terrible experiences speaking to other venues and vendors, but Christine did not even flinch and welcomed us with open arms. The same went for the vendors she recommended that we dealt with. At the Heintzman House we were treated the same as every other couple and in the end we both had the wedding we always dreamed of. Thanks Christine and Heintzman House!

They have a beautiful piano onsite that can be used as well as TONS Of parking. Our caterers loved the kitchen they had onsite. The BEST feature however, was the amazing bridal suite(s) upstairs. STUNNING for pictures and also making you feel like royalty on your big day.
Great place! I recommend them!

The property is a not-for-profit establishment which is why it's a diamond in the rough! For couples who live in the outskirts of the GTA (Markham, Richmond Hill, Newmarket), Heintzman is a sure thing. Because it's not downtown, you aren't going to pay downtown fees and rates - and you can spend your day getting ready on-site in their gorgeous bridal suite. The grounds are wonderful for photos (namely the balcony, the front lawn, the staircase, and the lounge).
It can be done beautifully if you can stretch your décor budget to bring in some vintage furniture and upscale dining chairs for your reception. If you can funnel some of what you would have paid being downtown on the "pretty" details, than you can bet it will be money well spent!
Heintzman House has huge potential and comes at a very attractive sticker price (did we mention they have a PARKING lot in the back??). Make sure you consider this venue in your search for the perfect event space.
