Weddings & Celebrations
Because today is about you
Our philosophy is to provide you with a beautiful and inviting space and then let you complete it with the details of your choosing.
We believe you should decide how you want to decorate, what you want to eat, who you want to order from and how to run the event bar. We welcome you to bring in any caterer of your choice, run your bar to your liking, and include any other staff or organizations you see fit. And, like any good backyard, we don't shut down until the party is truly over. With bookings until 2:00 AM, we encourage you and your guests to make the most of this unforgettable day AND night!
Our 9,600 square foot venue is thoughtfully designed with 30 foot ceilings, beautiful cedar accents and numerous large windows that fill the space with natural light.
The Backyard can accommodate up to 300 guests but can also be adjusted to provide an intimate space for gatherings of smaller sizes. The main floor includes separate space for the bar and the caterers.
Upstairs has private get-ready rooms for your wedding party that are equipped with their own washrooms. Next to the wedding party quarters, there is a spacious loft that overlooks the entire main floor, a perfect vantage point to take in all the festivities on your special day.
At nearly half an acre, our outdoor grounds are an expansive private park, fully fenced in to provide privacy and a feeling of intimacy not commonly found within the city.
Currently under construction and scheduled to be completed for the 2022 season, the outdoor space will include a patio with custom pergola and classic backyard fire for guests to gather around. Beautiful greenery, flowers, vines and lush lawn are a bit of what you can expect in The Backyard's backyard.
The Backyard is spacious enough to give you the flexibility to host both the ceremony and the reception either inside or outside, depending on what your heart desires and how the weather cooperates.
The Backyard comes equipped with:
Banquet tables and chairs for up to 300 people, set-up included.
Extra tables for cocktails, DJ, welcome table, and caterer/buffet use are available.
Built-in audio visual equipment including speakers for the ceremony & dinner, wireless microphone and a 15 foot HD laser projector and screen.
Available decorations include a podium, archway and Edison-style string lights.
