Small intimate wedding and reception

We had a wonderful experience at Canlis! Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and more. We had our ceremony and reception at Canlis. The staff was wonderful, the venue was gorgeous and the food was amazing. Canlis set up the room, coordinated with the florist, coordinated the champagne toast, reached out to rental companies and took care of all the decorations at the end of the evening. We are so happy with our experience and highly recommend Canlis for couples looking for small intimate wedding venues.

We booked and held our reception in the Executive room at Canlis. All the staff was very
professional and very dedicated to ensuring our event was perfectly they way we dreamt. The food was phenomenal, the ambience elegant and romantic. They made our day truly special.

Katie, the events person was such a joy to work with! She made me feel at ease about everything related to our wedding. Canlis is known for their service and they did not disappoint the night of our wedding. It honestly felt like I was hosting an event at home. The drinks were delicious and the food was incredible. We were so glad that we chose to have such an important event at Canlis :)
