I wanted a unique venue and I that is exactly what I got! As my guests walked in they were blown away by the artwork and decor. Michelle and her team were so easy to work with, from food to decor! The Defoor Centre offers it all!
OUR WEDDING WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I would recommend the Defoor Centre to anyone for any event. The venue is trendy and beautiful. Although we were on a strict budget, no one treated us any different. Also, Michele and Davina were so sweet and helpful from the time before be made the deposit through the end of our wedding night. Also, Defoor had a variety of options that accommodated all of our needs. All of the staff was great especially Michele and Davina! As a bride, I must emphasize that Michele really took care of me, the groom, and our parents. It was truly a wonderful experience. The food was superb and available in abundance. Also, our guests were all happy and very impressed with the facility. Our wedding had over 150 people in attendance and there were no issue with space or parking. If I had to do it all over again I would not have my wedding anywhere but the Defoor Centre.
There are SO many great things to say about the Defoor Centre, that I don't think I could fit them all in one review. Michelle was AMAZING -- she helped with all the planning and helped us make our wedding feel 'us' by helping us customize it. Whatever we wanted, Michelle made it happen!
The food was amazing! A month later and people are still raving about it! We opted for a buffet, but you can have a plated dinner. The buffet allowed people to go back for seconds, which they definitely did. The cake, was to die for, and looked just how we pictured!
Michelle kept the whole reception running smoothly and was excellent at troubleshooting when my bustle was not quite working out.
The staff was amazing, treated us like family, and they are so sweet.
They regularly have open houses, where you can try the food, and see the venue. Pictures simply don't do it justice; it is a really cool venue.
I cannot recommend them enough! They're simply...
The Defoor Centre is the perfect all in one venue! The venue itself is beautiful and little decorating is needed. The Defoor Centre also has lots of décor that is perfect for any wedding. Michelle and the staff are wonderful! You really don’t need a wedding planner because they do everything. Michelle was there to answer every possible question that I had from October to June! The food and alcohol selections are by far the best for your money. We had an evening wedding (7 p.m), which gave us plenty of time to relax at the Defoor Centre prior to the start of the wedding and we were not rushed to end our reception (which ended around midnight). My wedding was stress free and exciting! Michelle and the staff made me feel like a princess. I recommend this venue to any bride that wants a unique venue with a wonderful staff at a great price!
great prices, great consultant, prompt communication, doesn't nickel-and-dime you on every little thing. we had a blast
Very flexible and easy to work with from out of town. Staff was wonderful and committed to our being able to enjoy the reception. Got great feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed the venue and the food. The interior is attractive enough on its own that it doesn't require extensive decorating.
We had our wedding reception at the Defoor Centre in September. The venue itself is very trendy/artsy. The event coordinator, Michelle, was very easy to work with. The only bad part was that the wait staff started breaking down the table 2 hours before the reception was supposed to end which made a lot of people think it was time to leave. The food was pretty good and the sound equipment is also very nice.
Defoor Centre is an absolutely beautiful place to hold a wedding reception! We looked at about 30 venues, and they were all pretty similar, then we walked into Defoor Centre, and knew that this was the place! The pricing was reasonable, the layout was perfect for a fairly large crowd, the staff was very professional and responsive. Everyone enjoyed the buffet (and RAVED about the fried chicken!) - it was just a perfect evening all around. I highly recommend Defoor Centre to anyone who is planning a special event!
A very cool and funky event space! You must check this place out!
