"Hello Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm, I attended a wedding this past weekend at your grounds. My daughter was the flower girl for the wedding. I wanted to e-mail you regarding one of your employees, Susan, who helped organize and coordinate the wedding. I wanted to let you know how wonderful she was. She was completely engaged and organized before and during the ceremony. Even with everything going on she still ensured my daughter was comfortable and relaxed. Throughout the night she found time to say a quick hello to us and make sure both my daughter and son were enjoying themselves. My daughter was very upset that she did not get a chance to thank Susan before we left so can you please let her know we are grateful for all her help. Susan helped make a special day for us even more enjoyable. P.S. Your grounds are beautiful and the kids loved the pond with the frogs and all the barn animals!"
- Sincerely, Krista
"We got married at Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm on 18 February 2012 and from the open house a year earlier to the early planning stages of our wedding day, our experience with the staff at Stanley's was wonderful. We visited several potential venues but when we arrived at Stanley's, we knew we wanted to get married there. One of the facility's event coordinators, Rhonda Comeau, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and helped us make our big day perfect. The personal service she provided for us was the foundation of our perfect experience. Stanley's is simply a beautiful and remarkable location, summer or winter. We had our engagement pictures done outside on the spectacular grounds in August 2011 on a beautiful sunny day and there were so many beautiful spots to choose from! For the February 2012 wedding ceremony, we chose the outdoors "Cedars" location and all our guests commented on how beautiful it was. On a nice sunny day at -1C with clear blue skies, the 5-minute horse-drawn sleigh ride to the Cedars with the ceremony in the white snow made it look like a fairy tale - it was spectacular! The reception followed at the main building called "The Maples" and its soaring draped ceilings gave the evening a very elegant feeling. The staff and service were amazing, and on top of everything, the food was absolutely wonderful! Each guest was well looked after, every small detail was taken care of allowing us to just relax and enjoy our day, the decor was amazingly elegant and the WOW factor was definitely there when guests walked in, even for us! Several of them told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and they sang the praises of the service, food and location. We highly recommend Stanley's for your special day! Earl, Joy, Kathy, Rhonda and all the staff at Stanley's, thank you for making our day magical, fabulous and low stress, and for making all of the work behind the scenes seem so effortless! We appreciate all of your help, time, organization and patience. Our sincere gratitude and thanks for making our wedding day everything we dreamed of! It was the best day of our lives, thanks in no small part to all of you!" Click here for Wedding Video

"Hello Earl, I am the second of the two official photographers who shot the Bender/Gordon wedding this past Saturday. My boyfriend is the lanky redhead who shot as first camera. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your beautiful farm, and how well everything was run. Your staff always showed up discreetly, and in the nick of time, to do their jobs quickly and efficiently before fading into the background again. I know how much work goes into keeping everything running so smoothly. Huge kudos to you and to of course to them! And as I'm sure you can already guess, as photographers, we were spoiled for choice as to where to shoot, which gave us and the bridal party great variety. By the way, I think the giant swingset and play structure are strokes of pure genius. Thank you very much again for making the bride's day, and our job, so much easier for everyone involved. I won't hesitate to recommend your lovely farm as a possible venue for wedding parties, or other events, in the future."

"Hi Earl, Joy, Rachel and the whole team at Stanley’s, Thank you very much for making our day such a memorable one! Earl made me laugh (and destress!) and had Audrée, our little flower girl, wrapped around his finger. Joy and Rachel, you did an amazing job at pulling all my ideas together and creating my ‘Martha Stewart’ fairytale wedding. Who is the mastermind behind those mojitos?!!! That drink was delicious! If it hadn’t been my wedding, I definitely would’ve had more. Our MC toasted the greatnest of the meal during the evening, without us even mentioning anything. I hear Jordy cooked the meat and he did a fantastic job!"
- Thanks, Lindsay & Martin
"Hello to everyone at Stanley's Farm, Thank you! Our wedding was amazing. Not only was everything spectacular but we had a blast. We were enjoying ourselves so much that before we knew it, things were drawing to a close. Nevertheless, we are so glad that the weather held out, the hall was so beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. Everything fell into place perfectly. Not to mention everyone at Stanley's has been wonderful to work with, so kind and helpful, and very friendly. We are so glad that we chose to have our wedding at Stanley's. We tell people about how amazing our wedding was all the time, and our friends do, too. Everyone who attended was amazed, and the people who see pictures are awed. Many have told me that they felt it was something out of a fairytale or a movie. Everything was so perfect, beautiful and unique. It truly was the day of our dreams and we just wanted to say thank you for everything. As for the photos, you have our permission to use them on your Facebook page, blog and/or website. There have been hundreds of photos taken by guests and family. I shared most of my friends/family's albums on my facebook page, you can find them on my wall. If you have trouble viewing them, please let me know. As for the other pictures that I have, if I see some nice ones, I will send them your way. Thank you again for a spectacular day."

"I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to Earl and Joy at Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm for all the assistance you put into hosting my daughters wedding. I can not heap enough praise for the attentiveness of your staff and the respectful treatment they extended to our guests. The elder of our family were made to feel special as your staff chauffeured them from one venue to another and graciously gave them a tour of the farm. The beautifully maintained landscape and wedding décor was to perfection. The meal was delicious. My daughter’s fairy tail wedding unfolded before my eyes and I wish to thank everyone for their professionalism."

"Nick and I would like to say thank you so much for a fantastic day!! Nothing could have happened if it weren't for all the staff at Stanley's! We had an amazing day with amazing weather and we appreciate all the hard work from everyone to allow us to have a stress free day! We have gotten compliments upon compliments of how beautiful the property is and how fantastic all the decorations were, as well as how great the staff were all day to make them feel comfortable. We absolutely can't thank everyone enough!!!"

"Holding our reception as Stanley's was an easy choice to make. From our first visit we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. And then we met Earl and Joy, and they made the whole process so simple. They took care of everything, and did it with such style and ease. They were involved every step of the way, and their presence the day of was so comforting to know that they were there to make sure everything went smoothly. And it did! The food, the service, the venue! Everything went above and beyond our expectations and we couldn't ask for anything more. Our wedding day was perfect and everything we dreamed of and we accredit that to all the staff at Stanley's. Thank you so much!"
- Lots of Love, Josh & Robin
"Wally and I had an amazing wedding day! It played out like a fairy tale with gorgeous blue sunny skies, romantic stone steps and enchanting forest with a ride by horse and carriage into our future together as a married couple. Your reception tent is beyond just a ÒtentÓ that has walls that open up to the absolutely wonderful views of your farms mature landscape outdoors and the beautiful decorating inside. Together all this made our wedding dreams come true!"
- Beth & Wally
"Thank you very much for making our special day more than perfect! We both couldn't imagine it any other way! The ceremony setting at the stone steps was so romantic and special, and our family and friends thought it was amazing! The tent looked absolutely beautiful and was exactly what we had envisioned! You and your staff were so helpful through the whole process and we couldn't have done it without you! We look forward to enjoying many more special occasions at the farm with our family and friends!!!"

"Thanks for making our special day so amazing. It truly was perfect in every way. We really really had fun and that is what we were aiming for. Stanleys will come highly recommended from us. Earl, you made us feel so at ease during the ceremony. The little pep talks helped everyone! And most importantly thanks for fixing my dress when I got out of the carriage. You thought of everything!"
- Kristen & Matt Standing
"Thank you for helping make our special day a reality! Things went smoothly and all the guests had an amazing time! The food was great and the hall looked fabulous! Thanks again!"

We had a great time at the dinner theatre. The food was superb....you don't need to take a back seat to anyone in the catering field. Extremely well done....great menu and excellent service. Also, thank you for our table location. It was a truly enjoyable evening."
"To everyone at Stanleys. There is nothing else to say except from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
One day someone randomly mentioned Stanleys to me and the result was easily the best day of our lives
( so far). It was exactly
Like a fairytale.
Even the little things, looked after, worked to make the day incredible. We will never forget everything that you have done for us and we will send out some pictures as soon as we have them.
- Krista and Jesse
From the moment John and I walked around on the property we fell in love with the place and we felt a calmness about it. We were both looking for a place to hold our wedding that felt relaxed and had beautiful scenery. We certainly found both when we got there.
It was a pleasure dealing with you and all your staff and you certainly took care of all our needs. It made things so much easier to book all the wedding needs like the officiant and the DJ right therein your office. The Olde Stone House was gorgeous and the decorations were perfect. We really liked the idea of the dance floor and the bar being outside and the midnight bbq on the porch. It seemed to give our reception a more "outside casual feel".
All the guests loved the fact that they could roam the property at their leisure and everyone had nothing but wonderful things to say about the place. Earl, Kathy, June and Joclyne definitely looked after our needs and beyond and made us feel very at ease.
Once again we thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all that was done to make out wedding day a memorable experience! I have included a few pictures for you. They turned out amazing.
We will always give your place an amazing review!!
Thanks so much."

"Earl and Joy,
Thank you so much for helping make our fairytale wedding come to life. We had such a fun time planning the day, preparing for the big day, and of course, on the big day. You and your staff are so well prepared, which made our day go off without a worry. You have created a beautiful business. We hope to see you again soon.
(maybe at Colleens Wedding ... tee hee)"

"I just wanted to send a quick email expressing how much my family and I enjoy visiting your sugar bush. Discovered last year, my sister and I decided to return this year and try out the Easter Egg Hunt with my now-3 year old and to bring along a friend and her son. As per last year, the staff was pleasant, the grounds, sights, and activities were excellent, the buffet was fantastic, and the gift bag at the end of the egg hunt was obviously put together with thought and care. If we weren't convinced then that we would always return to Stanley's, a trip to a competing sugar bush the following weekend with some other family members confirmed that yours is superior! Looks like we will be returning next year and bringing a few more friends and family along with us! Keep up the wonderful work and we'll see you next year!"
- Marlene Caldwell
"I would like to thank you (including your staff) for an absolutely fantastic day. The cocktail, the meal, the hall set-up, decorations, tables, etc. was great - we've received many comments, all positive, for all of these - great meal, very good food, very nice place, beautiful decorations, etc.... you get the picture. It was truly great and I take this opportunity to thank you for your work and efforts."

"On June 19th, Myself and my Wife were married at Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm. We chose to have our ceremony and reception at Stanley's as they could conveniently host and facilitate all our needs on this special day and within our budget. Prior meetings with Stanley's staff were also easily arranged and organized so that all pre-wedding planning and concerns were easily addressed and taken care of.
Our ceremony was at the "Stone Steps". This outdoor location was an excellent location for us as it was surrounded by seasonal flowers in great abundance. We did not need a floral decorator as we preferred a more natural look and surrounding. The many trees around us offered us plenty of shade as well. During the ceremony the groom is "miked" for sound allowing all your guests to hear the ceremony.
Amy and her family arrived via horse and carriage, a very nice touch that enhanced our day. After the ceremony her and I left in the carriage for a brief but very welcome pause to our exciting day. We were taken around the farm and into the woods where we had a chance to enjoy a few minutes to ourselves and some champagne which is waiting for you chilled inside the carriage.
Our Reception was held at the "Olde Stone House". A cozier setting that easily seated our 50 guests. It was beautifully decorated, air conditioned, had both a mens and woman's bathroom and had the optional bridal retreat. We did get the bridal retreat and I recommend it. This place gave the girls a place to go that was quiet and out of the way. We also had a few babies at the wedding so this room served us well in that regards where our friends could take their children when needed for feedings and some quiet time. There was an outdoor bar, dance floor and the whole place is beautifully landscaped with flowers, rock gardens, and lit walking trails.
For the Dinner we had the "maple chicken". This dish is very good! It came with all the trimmings and was well proportioned. For dessert we had the berry compote. Highly recommended for a hot day. Stanley's will work with you on preparing your menus so all your guests dietary needs will be looked after.
Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm is a real working farm with all the associated sights, sounds and animals. If you are looking for a place where you and your guests will have a great day with many things to do, then Stanley's is the place. I highly recommend if you have a photographer, that they visit Stanley's at least twice. There are too many photo opportunities and locations to list or recommend!
What we really liked about Stanley's was their staff. From the moment we and our guests arrived we were well taken care of. The staff were around to assist and fix any last minute changes or requests and most importantly..dress issues and crooked ties! They take great pride in their jobs and it shows. I would recommend Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm as a wedding venue to anyone. They will work with you to make sure your day is a most beautiful and memorable one.
If you require additional information, please fell free to contact Amy or myself by way of Stanley's who can put you in touch with us."

We are so proud to have invited our guests to this magical place. It will forever remain engraved in our memories.
