I couldnt be any happier with how the day went! It was defiently my dream wedding!! Everyone, including yourself, Liz, Jeff and all of the Truffles staff were just wonderful and so on the ball with everything! All of the comments I have recieved from my guests say that the venue couldnt have been more beautiful and fun!!!

Hatley Castle, as a venue, is beyond imagining.  The spaces, interior and exterior just exude luxury - and isn't that what you want a wedding day to feel like?  The beauty of the gardens - stellar.

The catering, support, planning and overall event at Hatley was outstanding!  The support was awesome and helped make everything run perfectly. The beautiful backdrop overlooking the water and mountains was really amazing and the group was appreciative to have the opportunity to tour the castle. Please pass along my thanks and praise to everyone at Truffles and everyone at Hatley that helped us wow our guests!



I just wanted to send you a big thank you for all the help that we received from you. I know our day went flawlessly due to all the helping hands from our family, friends & wonderful vendors like yourself who listen & truly want to reach the same goal!









On behalf of my wife and I, I’d like to thank the staff at RRU for an amazing and extremely pleasant service your team provided for our special day. I can honestly say my experience dealing with my Event Coordinator was absolutely seamless throughout the wedding preparation & planning to the actual day of the wedding. Thank you again for helping us make our wedding a day to remember! I’ll be sure to refer you to our other friends who will be getting married in the years to come.









We had a wonderful time, you and your staff were amazing, we felt like royalty. I can't thank you enough for making our special day absolutely amazing.
