Picking a venue is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make when planning your wedding. You must ensure it doesn’t just meet the needs of your guests but also fits your style and vision. In fact, your chosen party space will play an important part in setting the tone for your entire wedding.

If you are still on the lookout, we’d like to introduce you to La Maquette – a Parisian-inspired restaurant that will be the perfect backdrop for your special day.

So, what makes the venue so incredible? Find out in the article below.

1. Romantic vibe

The atmosphere at La Maquette is hard to beat. The venue boasts an intimate and romantic vibe, which is excellent for tying the knot. If you’ve ever dreamed about a French wedding, this will be a great alternative that doesn’t require you to leave the country.

2. Central location

When searching for a wedding venue, the logistics should be a priority. A party space that’s five hours from Toronto may not be accessible for all of your loved ones. La Maquette is located right in the heart of Downtown Toronto, just across the street from St. James Cathedral. Within close distance, you’ll find plenty of shops and accommodations.

3. ‘Escape’ the city

While La Maquette is centrally located, with its stunning outdoor patio, it will feel like you’ve escaped the city. Lots of greenery, fresh flowers, and well-needed peace and quiet – who said you have to leave Toronto to get closer to nature?

4. The Sculpture Garden

The beautiful two-level space faces Toronto’s Sculpture Garden, which provides a whimsical secret garden-esque feel. Thanks to this feature, La Maquette almost seems like an oasis in the midst of the city. Just imagine how gorgeous your wedding photos will turn out!

5. Spacious without being soo big

If you are planning a larger wedding, finding a venue that can host your guests without losing the intimate feeling can almost seem like mission impossible. At La Maquette, you can invite between 150 and 200 of your closest friends and family members and still have a special experience.

6. Many options for taking photos

Whether you enjoy taking photos or not, capturing your wedding through photography is a ‘must’ to cherish all the fun you’ve had even after years have passed.

When celebrating your special day at La Maquette, you’ll have several backdrop options. The awe-inspiring outdoor patio, the Cathedral Church of St. James, and many more.

7. The Cinderella Solarium

Perhaps one of La Maquette’s best features is its breathtaking Cinderella Solarium. If you are dreaming of a fairy-tale-like wedding, this is the right place to do it.

8. Several options for the ceremony

When it comes to the place of the ceremony, at La Maquette, you can choose between several options. You can plan it outside, overlooking the beautiful greenery, in the main floor, or upstairs in the solarium.

9. Exceptional in-house catering

With Berkeley Events, there’s no need to outsource. We offer high-level catering services that will impress even the biggest foodies and gourmets. You’ll be pleased – we guarantee!

10. Fewer decor

Decorations are usually among the biggest wedding planning expenses. The advantage of choosing to celebrate at La Maquette is that you can avoid these huge costs. Since the venue is stunning on its own, you’ll need less decor.
