I am from New York, marrying a Toronto-nian. I am having such a hard time finding places to look for a venue, being unfamiliar with the area!
We have 40-50 guests, and I am looking for an exposed brick, restaurant-type, open exposed beam. Just had a family wedding in the distillery district, so we’d like to look at other places. Possibly a Mill? We have a tight budget, the less the better! I have a lot of out of town guests coming from my side, so I would like to have them see really nice side of Toronto.
It is so hard not being able to visit places! I am getting nervous about waiting to book a venue… but I am hesitant to book one without being able to see it!

maybe try the Old Mill Inn – although very beautiful, it comes with a nice price tag but you can call and see!
Steamwhistle Brewery is also very gorgeous and a very popular venue for that kind of wedding. again, kinda pricy

Hey I’m in Toronto, I am getting married at the Old Mill Inn and Spa that the PP mentioned, it was not that badly priced for the area but it doesn’t have the look you described. I saw about 20-25 venues and I think the closest to your desired look for your numbers that I saw is Archeo in the Distillery http://www.archeo.ca/gallery.php , I know you said not distillery but it is beautiful, has the look you want and one of my fav areas of the city. If you are willing to go outside of what you describe Estates of Sunnybook is gorgeous, I also liked the Ancaster Mill in Hamilton, Fantasy Farms, St Lawrence Hall (not market but hall) and Parkwood the Mclaughlin estate in Oshawa (p.s. Parkwood is the exterior of Xavier’s school for the gifted in Xmen and the house from Billy Madison).

We got married at the Alton Mill, although it’s an hour outside of Toronto. Beautiful though. If you want to see pictures, PM me and I’ll give our our website/password.
It’s a fully restored mill complete with large boulder walls, exposed wooden beams, hand done floors. It is now an art gallery as well, so everything was beauitfully decorated.

Good afternoon 🙂
I read an old post that you had your wedding at Alton Mill – I’m going for a tour on saturday and I was wondering if you would share some photos? How was your experience/what caterer did you go with?
