brideinthesix:  Just wanted more ideas for when the time comes! Preplanning for wedding in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 🙂 We’ve narrowed down our venue to either Estates of Sunnybrook or Graydon Hall (if it fits the budget!)

miijoo:  Graydon Hall is so gorgeous, bit on the pricey side. Estates of Sunnybrook was on the list for us too, but we ended up falling in love with our first venue. Good Luck planning!

brideinthesix:  I love Berkeley! Before I was engaged, it was in my top 3 venues – one other being Steamwhistle and the third was Lower Bay Station (TTC) but they stopped renting that out for private parties a few years ago.

Do you mind if I ask a few questions? If you’re in the Fieldhouse do you get any access to the Church (just for photos for example) – like that “basement” part just inside that little court area between the two? 
Is alcohol included in their catering or can you bring your own in?
