A Space Like No Other: Why Arcadian Court is Perfect for Your Wedding and Reception
You love the idea of holding your wedding and reception in downtown Toronto, but you are not sure which venue would be right. Part of the issue is that you are still working out the details of what you want in the way of colours and other elements for the event. Why not focus your attention on a venue that is known for lending itself easily to customization? That venue is Arcadian Court.
A Setting With History
Arcadian Court has been around since 1929. Over the years, a number of important events have taken place within its walls. The first radio broadcast of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra took place here. When the famous auction house Southeby’s decided to expand beyond Great Britain, that very first one took place in Arcadian Court.
Along with these historic events, Arcadian Court has been the site of many concerts over the years. From classical concerts to adult contemporary and popular music entertainers, many of them have delighted fans within the walls of this venue.
Restored to the Glory Years
In recent years, steps were taken to undo some of the modernization that had been done to Arcadian Court in times past. What you have today is a beautiful and expansive space for your special day. Eight of the original arches are now exposed again and help to add to the air of expansiveness found in the mezzanine. You’ll also find that other arches that had not been covered have been restored to their original designs. There are even chandeliers in the space designed to recapture the opulent look that the Court offered during its first decades. All these efforts come together to create a setting that will be ideal for your wedding plans.
