If you start planning your wedding as a teenager like our Event Planner Ashley, you will probably have hundreds of ideas by the time the big day arrives.
As soon as Ashley discovered Hacienda Sarria, she saved the date for May 2nd, 2015. See how simply she managed to pick her perfect date.
The venue you select will greatly determine the look and feel of your day, whether you’d like a lively, colourful, outdoor ceremony or an intimate, elegant affair by the fireplace.
Ashley had looked for a long time for the perfect place to get married, but it wasn’t until she moved to Waterloo that she got the advice she was searching for:
I’m not actually from Waterloo, so at the time I moved here most of my wedding knowledge of venues and vendors was from London, Ontario. I decided to ask around for some advice on the best local venues, and that’s how I discovered Hacienda Sarria. I was on the bus, and being the friendly person I am, I started chatting with the driver whose daughter had recently gotten married. Little did I know I was about to unearth a gem.
The driver said he used to be a wedding DJ, and when I asked him where I should look at having my wedding without hesitation he replied 'Hacienda'.
"He had obviously seen many weddings throughout his career, but felt his daughter’s was 'just so different from all the others'. He was so genuinely impressed and recalled the day so vividly, that it convinced me to put Hacienda straight to the top of my list.
After all, you know if the father of the bride is excited to talk about décor and 'I do’s' it must have been one extraordinary event. Once I got home, I looked Hacienda up online, fell in love with the wedding photos, set up a meeting to view the building, and the rest is history."
