Our post-wedding party was attended by 100 guests from as far away as western Canada. We wanted a playful but elegant event with superb food and great ambience. We got it! Our families stayed in the cottages and got to hang out together. We had a welcome barbecue lunch near the waterpark catered by The Woodlands and everyone had a blast. Chef Dennis worked with us on an upscale menu for the evening event at a reasonable cost. Ashley, Liz, and Isabella made it all happen just the way we wanted it to. The team were very flexible and eager to do whatever they could to make the weekend perfect. We included kids in the celebration and had games outside the event hall - and of course the adults joined in! We didn't want a cake and The Woodlands put together a totally fun sundae bar. The result: a warm, fun, event that allowed our family and friends to get to know each other while enjoying great food and lots of play time. If you're looking for a lovely, elegant, but "un-stuffy" atmosphere, celebrate at The Woodlands.

I'm so glad we decided to use the Woodlands at Algonkian for our wedding reception! They came highly recommended by a family friend who held a wedding there a few years ago and after working with them, I can see why. The venue is beautiful, even during the typically bleak Nova winter and the staff was just lovely. They catered to our every question and concern with the utmost professionalism, so we (me, my husband, and our families) didn't need to worry about a thing. Thank you Woodlands, for making our special day so magical!
