- Wedding: March 2016 - Enoch Turner Schoolhouse
Hello fellow bees!
My Fiance and I are going to see a potential venue – Enoch Turner Schoolhouse in Toronto, Canada http://www.heritagetrust.on.ca/Heritage-Venues/Weddings-and-Special-events/Enoch-Turner-Schoolhouse.aspx (tour like view – check it out) tonight and I can’t wait. I love it because of the high ceilings, the green beams and windows. Our date is on March 17, 2016 and tbh this is the first venue that has captured my interest because it ties in with our wedding. It has Irish heritage – my Fiance is Irish, I’m filipino. We met on St. Patrick’s day. The green beams tie in with the decor that I’ve envisioned. Best of all their rental fee for the entire building is only $1250! We plan to have under 150 guests.
This is what it could look like for the ceremony portion. I love it for the big windows and aren’t the beams amazing? The only green I plan to have – I’m not doing green dresses. It is on St. Patrick’s Day but I’m doing dark grey dresses for the maids and green bouquets. The venue provides chairs for 150 people – no need to rent and is included in the fee 😉
During cocktail hour in the “Salon” or Classroom, the caterers flip the West Hall room over for reception. The next two pictures are what it could look like. Should we do rectangular tables – included in the venue rental fee, OR round tables? Round tables will be extra from caterers. It will be a sit-down, 3-course meal dinner.
I’m in love with this place and I really hope the Fiance loves it too – judging from the website and pics he does, and totally happy with the rental fee costs.
So my concern is, what kinds of questions should I ask the venue coordinator? Any food/bar type of questions will be discussed with the caterer we end up with. But what should I ask in terms of venue related items? Parking? Coat Check? Is there a bridal suite? Anything else that come to mind?
Your tips and advice is much appreciated!!! Thank you Bees!
