One of my favourite things about working in the wedding industry is meeting and making so many amazing friends and connections who are not only great people, but amazing at what they do.
Here is a list of some of my top industry friends and vendor recommendations across Southern Ontario that I know that you are going to love just as much as I do.
The best part of my list is that it has been built on personal connections and experiences I have had myself. Some other lists out there are based off of how much money a vendor can pay in order to be listed. I can promise you that I don't take a penny from any of these vendors for the purpose of being on the list. They're simply here because they rock, and I love what they do.
Throughout the list, you will find some with a little ❤︎ beside the vendor name. Theses are my vendor friends that actively work to create a welcoming and safe space that empowers throughout their business and everything they do.
Storehouse 408 ❤︎
This stunning indoor/outdoor newly renovated space is located in the heart of Hespeler Village and is one of the newest venues in Cambridge. Perfect for weddings of 100-160 people.

With some of the barn originating in 1862, this charming and elegant space is perfect for those that want to get out of the busy city.
