50th Anniversary Vow Renewal

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at The Donald Gordon Center in the Coach House Pub and renewed our vows in the outdoor courtyard. We could not have asked for any better venue or experience.

The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. Our guests kept complimenting us on choosing Donald Gordon Center as they were so impressed with the service, the food and the overall atmosphere.

Julianna Harbec was the coordinator for our event and it was a pleasure to work with her. She is great at what she does. What we didn’t think of, she did.
We would highly recommend that anyone looking to book for a special occasion check out this location. They will not be disappointed.

Beautiful Venue + Incredible Staff = Perfect Choice

We chose the Donald Gordon Centre as the setting for our June 2019 wedding and could not have made a more perfect choice for our 60 person event. The limestone buildings and beautiful landscaping provided the perfect backdrop for our courtyard ceremony. The Coach House Pub, and its outdoor patio, allowed for the intimate atmosphere we wanted for our reception and was also ideal for our evening of live music and dancing. Our guests raved about the quality and variety of food, the incredible bar staff, and the ambiance. Julianna worked with us and the rest of the staff to make sure every detail was taken care of and that our day was stress-free. Thanks to this incredible team, I can honestly say we were able to thoroughly enjoy our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect!

Wonderful Venue for 50th Anniversary Party

We hosted my parents' 50th Surprise anniversary party at the DGC for approximately 50 guests. It was a perfect venue, with indoor and outdoor spaces to gather. The food was excellent and very plentiful! Something for everyone. The staff were very well prepared and very responsive before and on the event day. They allowed us to come in several hours in advance to set up flowers, décor, etc. Very good value as well!
