Testimonials

Hello, I’m the mother of the bride from my daughter’s wedding on December 11th.
I have to say I have never heard more compliments than I have about the entire day – from the location to the employees, to the AMAZING food we had. It was the best day and I could NOT have asked for more! Victoria was the best! The location was beautiful, and the butterflies, I can not express how thankful I am for you making this wedding perfect! I hope more people ask because you will immediately be recommended by me or anyone who attended the wedding!!

Thank you for the best wedding ever!
With much appreciation,
PEGGY – DECEMBER 2023

Dear Wedding Team

We wanted to reach out and thank you for helping to make our wedding a once-in-a-lifetime event.  Your staff has been knowledgeable, professional and an amazing help from the first steps of our wedding journey.  Neither Kelly nor I were familiar with planning such a large event and your team of experienced consultants took us through every step of the process.  Their attention to detail was impressive and they made helpful suggestions to ensure our evening ran smoothly and was a huge success.  The venue is absolutely beautiful, and we knew from the very first visit that this was where we were going to be married.  We were looking for an outdoor wedding, but after seeing the tropical scenery inside the conservatory, we knew we could have our dream outdoor wedding without having to worry about the weather.  Your venue lent itself to some stunning photos with our photographer.
From the ceremony to the meal, the entire evening was beyond our expectations. All of the guests loved the space and raved about the meal.  Even our other vendors, who have attended many weddings, said it was the best meal they had ever had at an event.  So please thank the chef and the entire kitchen staff for their hard work for our evening.  We want to especially acknowledge the extra steps taken to accommodate Kelly’s Celiac disease.  From the separate plate of hors d’oeuvres in the bridal suite to the gluten-free bread at the head table you made her feel even more special that evening.
The transformation of the café to our reception area was stunning and exactly what we were looking for, we also appreciated how quickly you were able to convert that space to a dance floor following dinner. The guest signing table and the cocktail area were also arranged perfectly and your ability to seamlessly convert that table to accommodate our wedding favours at the end of the evening was so helpful.
We would like to recognize Alyssa and Victoria in particular since they were the two consultants we dealt with regularly leading up to the wedding. They were both incredibly delightful to work with due to their positive attitude and friendly demeanour.  They were always very responsive whenever we had a question or concern and made the sometimes stressful planning of a wedding that much easier. We could not have dreamed of a better venue for our special day and a better team of consultants to make it a reality.
Thank you
KELLY & ADAM – SEPTEMBER 2023

Good afternoon,

I wanted to take some time to thank the Butterfly Conservatory and their Team for our amazing wedding on the morning of June 10th. To say the venue exceeded our expectations was an understatement.
Our wedding coordinator for the rehearsal and on our day was extraordinary. Her calm and professional demeanour was exceptional, and the day would not have gone as smoothly without her. For example, she helped me make a plate of food at the buffet after we had been running around doing pictures, a bit overwhelmed and I was holding my dress. I will always remember her recognizing this, ‘reading the room’ if you will and how she jumped in to assist. This to me is the definition of superior customer service.
The team provided excellent customer service to our guests as well. We received many compliments on how stunning the venue was and how delicious all the food was. Guests are still ranting and raving about it.
Thank you again for making our day so beautiful and everything we could have ever wished for.
Yours truly,
AMY & CODY – JUNE 2023

Good morning Alyssa and Team,
We wanted to reach out and sincerely thank you and the team for all the great work you guys put into our little last-minute wedding. I truly don’t think I would’ve been able to handle the stress of doing it all in 2.5 months if it wasn’t for how amazing you all were, from answering 6 emails a day to all the setup the service provides. We felt so taken care of and you guys operate like a well-oiled machine. Was an amazing experience and I think I’m the only person I know who has said their wedding coordinators made their life so simple. The vendors you work with for catering are spectacular, I’m still hearing from everyone that the food was the best they’ve had at a wedding! It was truly the best day ever and I still cannot believe how much the team handled for us and how easy you guys were to work with.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

“I cannot explain or express how happy and just in awe we are of our wedding!! It was beyond amazing and way more than I could have imagined or hoped for. I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who were part of this planning and the day of. From organizing what goes where, to setting up all the details, and getting us following the time frame of events… I can’t be any happier.”
PATRYCIA & ROBERT – JULY 2022

Cayla, Ashley and Alyssa acted as not only our venue contacts but our wedding planners. They were a team after my own heart with their google sheets and checklists. I so appreciated their planning beforehand and their guidance throughout the big day itself. They ensured everything went smoothly and kept me in the loop if any changes in the schedule were required.”
EMMA AND JACOB – JUNE 2022

“Cayla, Alyssa, and Ashley – We just wanted to thank you for such a great day. Everything looked so beautiful and just how I was imagining it. We have had many guests compliment us on how beautiful everything was and that it was an awesome venue choice. Everyone also said how great the dinner was and the pizza at the end of the night! Thank you for all your hard work over the past 2 years and for making our wedding day amazing. It was well worth the wait.”
ALEX AND RYAN – MAY 2022

Cayla and Shannon – I can’t believe its been two weeks since our big day. I cannot thank you both enough for making our event so special, memorable and super easy. You were both so flexible, easy going and approachable about everything and you really took the stress out of event planning!
The venue was positively perfect and exactly what we had imagined; relaxed, peaceful and intimate. The service for the cocktail reception was so pleasant – everyone was outstanding, warm and wonderful. The Butterfly Conservatory Team was remarkable and we can’t thank you enough!

ROBYN AND SHAWN – FEBRUARY 2020

Our day, even though it went by so fast, was amazing and seamless because of Cayla and Shannon’s hard work. I have never felt so supported and a ease.
ROSANNE AND SCOTT – MAY 2019

“We wanted to take time to say THANK YOU!! You girls did an amazing job! Thank you for all your hard work and for making our wedding day super special! Every thing ran smoothly and on time. We heard many remarks on how great the meal tasted, thank you to the caterers and the rest of your staff too. We were extremely pleased with everything, thanks again.”
LYNETTE AND TREVOR – MAY 2019

“My husband and I had an incredibly magical, short and sweet wedding (it was an evening ceremony with a dessert reception), with about 150 guests, last night at the Butterfly Conservatory. Cayla and Shannon’s management of the event was invaluable. They were extremely attentive and flexible. I felt like everything was completely under control with them at the helm, assisted by the rest of the fantastic staff. The venue itself was nothing short of enchanting. On a dark and cold February evening, with the main overhead lights off, lit with twinkle string lights, it was a warm, cosy, magical oasis filled with everyone we love.The food and drink service was flawless, and even though we were not serving alcohol they were still happy to serve a custom mocktail that we requested. At the end of the night all of our things were quickly packed up for us and we were on our way home. All of our friends and family raved about the location, and how gorgeous everything was. Highly recommend, we have decided to have all of our weddings there ;)”
ANDREA AND TOM – FEBRUARY 2019

“Rachel, I just wanted to send along another brief thank you. I cannot begin to describe how instrumental you were in helping to organize our wedding and how incredibly professional, friendly, and accommodating you were. You were so helpful when I had no idea what to do or say, and so efficient I cannot begin to thank you properly. You made our day truly special. Thank you again.”
DANIELLE AND MATTHEW – APRIL 2018

“I wanted to thank you, Rachel and everyone at the Conservatory for all your hard work on our special day! The day was so perfect, it was really more than I dreamed it would be. Our guests were blown away by the service, food, and beauty! We heard a lot of great things from them. Our first dance was amazing, and I am just beyond words for the rest of the evening! I didn’t remember talking about having a butterfly release, so that was such a happy surprise (even if he butterflies were a little shy to come out). Overall it was just an incredible day and we wanted you to know how much we appreciate the part you played in making it happen!” 
MELISSA AND CRAIG – APRIL 2017

“When first visiting this venue I wasn’t all sure they would be willing to accommodate my vision of modern day gatsby as our theme. Since we were only hosting a smaller wedding for closest of family and friends (30), thought our numbers would be too small. Not at all. Cayla and her staff were extremely helpful in executing our vision. We had decided to use their cafe area as the reception area. To my surprise on our wedding day, it was beautiful, right out of a fairy tale. Walking into the lush conservatory portion amongst the butterflies was on point of being magical. The ceremony was beautiful with the florals, the greens, the butterflies and of course the pond. The waterfall was shut down and that is where we exchanged our vows. When I thought it couldn’t have been any more perfect, we walked into the rest of the building. They had transformed the lobby into the bar area and our reception to exactly the level of perfection I had dreamed of. I would tell and recommend to anyone wanting something extra special to check them out. You will not be disappointed by anything, not the venue, not the ceremony, not the level attention they give to detail. Your only limitation will be not saying yes!!!! Thank you again to Cayla, who is super woman!” 
MACKENZIE AND MICHAEL – AUGUST 2016

“Derek and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work preparing for our wedding. Everything was beautiful and ran smoothly thanks to you. The vegan meal was a real hit with our guests! Thank you also for the butterfly mementos, they are beautiful. We have recommended the Conservatory to all our friends and family! Thanks for making our wedding so perfect!” 
TIFFANY AND DEREK – MARCH 2016

“Cayla & Rachel – I have been trying to figure out the words to thank you to the fullest extent! Chris and I are so unbelievably pleased with the services you offered and delivered. We could not have asked for a better wedding day! You two went above and beyond to meet our needs through this whole experience and I just want to say thank you so very much. I appreciate everything you have done for us and how patient you were with me through this whole process! I am so thankful to both of you for this.” 
JENN AND CHRIS – MARCH 2016

“We are back from our amazing trip and the whole month seems like a dream. I would like to take this time to thank you for the wonderful job you guys did. It far exceeded our expectations. Everything went perfectly and turned out exactly the way I hoped. We are so thrilled that we picked your venue. The food was amazing, all our guests have been raving about the whole event!”
