We cater weddings all around Toronto and each one is unique and special for its own reasons. What made this particular Toronto wedding special for us was that it was for our very own sous-chef Hillary Brown and her husband Carmel Joseph Cuschieri.
Steam Whistle weddings are gorgeous. The indoor and outdoor spaces work perfectly for both rustic and chic weddings. The Beer Hall alone can entertain anywhere between 250 to 500 guest depending on if you do a sit down or reception. You don’t need a large group to get married there, Steam Whistle Brewing is happy to entertain groups as small as 30. Hillary and Carmel Joseph’s wedding was for 120 invitees.
For those of you that aren’t aware, Steam Whistle Brewing is located in Roundhouse Park right across from Ripley’s Aquarium and the Rogers center (Previously Skydome). This heritage building was originally a train depot used for fixing locomotives, its 1929 industrial look combined with the modern views of Toronto’s skyline offers plenty of scenic sights making it the perfect venue for taking wedding photos.

The ceremony seating was set facing the CN-Tower, Rogers center and downtown Toronto, overlooking the Roundhouse park train yard. To bring a country feel to the urban setting, Event Planner Jake Curl brought in vintage urban decor such as weathered crates, wine barrels and wooden chairs. He used three antique doors decorated with a green leaf reed as the wedding ceremony backdrop. The combination of these pieces perfectly blended the cityscape with the venues historical look and the couples desired country atmosphere.
Indoors, the country ambiance continued. Harvest tables decorated with white and green floral bouquets, candles and wooden chairs worked seamlessly with the venue’s impressive wooden beams and exposed brick. Edison bulb string lights were suspended from the high ceilings creating a romantic starlight sparkle as the sun set.
Hillary and Carmel Joseph created a menu featuring flavor profiles from East Asia, Western Europe and North America. Their serving formats included passed hors d’oeuvres, food stations and stationary tables.
