I had the pleasure of attending an Open House at one of Toronto’s most unique venues. Located at 50 Pottery Rd. Just seconds from the DVP, Fantasy Farm is a little piece of country in the big city!

Surrounded by mature trees, gardens and wildlife, all friendly I’m sure. Fantasy Farm makes you feel like you are miles away from the hustle & bustle.

What makes this venue unique, is its retro feel & decor. In fact, I had to laugh when I saw the bridal suite, the furniture brought back memories. The lamp they had, was the exact same lamp my parents had, back in the mid to late 70′s…..yes 1970! Now you know my age…lol!

I met one of the owners, Jimmy Georgoulis, he told me that they pride themselves in offering clients the best food! He claims they will pull out all the stops to ensure all their clients & their clients guests are very happy. They like to use local & seasonal farm fresh ingredients to ensure the best quaility.

Fantasy Farm caters to not only weddings but to Corporate Events, Birthday Parties, Baptisms, Engagement Showers, etc.

I do suggest going to see what Fantasy Farm has to offer. If “unique” is what your looking for, then I think you found the right place!

Here is a sneak peek….enjoy!

It was a gorgeous evening in Downtown Toronto. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, the skies were blue, & 42 WPICC Wedding Coordinators & vendors came together & boarded the “Showboat” for a fun night of networking & cruising Toronto!

I am the WPIC Regional Representative for Durham Region! As the Regional Representative, it is my responsibility to organize networking events & learning seminars for WPICC alumni

Certified Wedding/ Event Planners are constantly educating themselves & networking with other wedding vendors & venues. We tour  many venues & taste their food, so we can confidently refer them to our clients. It’s a tough job, I know…..but someone has to do it

We learn all there is to know about the venue. What packages they offer,  pricing, food, etc. We can match the right venue to our clients. Saving them a lot of time & running around from venue to venue & meeting to meeting, trying to find that perfect venue they have been dreaming of

Jana, a Mariposa Representative, discussing with us, their fleet & what they can offer our wedding & corporate clients

Jana explains that Mariposa doesn’t offer wedding packages, as all weddings are custom to what the client wants. Giving couples the freedom to design their own ceremony and/or reception the way they want, & within their own budget.

Mariposa’s fleet consists of many boats & ships. They can accomedate groups from 2- 500+. Whether you’re having a small intimate wedding or a BIG fat Greek wedding, Mariposa has a boat for that.

We had a 2 hour cruise around Lake Ontario. Seeing a side of Toronto that you just don’t get to see everyday

During the cruise we had the opportunity to chat with other amazing wedding professionals, that I selected to showcase their work!
