Cellar 52 is a highly sought-after historic and fully renovated wedding & event venue in the village of St. Jacob’s, Ontario. This now renovated building was actually an old lodging hotel that was built in 1852 (hence, Cellar 52). Located a quick walk to the riverside and nestled into the heart of one of the oldest villages in South Western Ontario, this venue is full of charm. Cellar 52 is everything you’ve ever wanted in a venue and then some. Let us tell you more…

The Cellar 52 team…

Cellar 52 is run by Trella and Stephanie, two very best friends who love food, wine, and travel. “We were roommates at Sir Wilfrid Laurier University where we completed our business degrees together. We have that once-in-a-lifetime type friendship that you don’t find everywhere and we never take it for granted.”

Originally Trella and Stephanie started out in restaurants, gaining experience in the food and hospitality industry. They quickly found that their passion had turned to catering, weddings, and events. 

“We know that your wedding will be one of the most important days of your life. It is an honour to be trusted and so closely involved in this special milestone in your life together.  We want to make it the best.  We do not take this responsibility lightly and are committed to using our vast experience and attention to detail to curate a day you will never forget. It is our personal mission and company standard to ensure your wedding is everything you have imagined, from your walk down the aisle to the late-night dance floor.”

When asked what inspires them, Stephanie said “We love what we do! We are committed to your clients and it shows in everything we do for them. Our brides and grooms are forever family to us, and we can’t wait to make their dreams come true.”

The venue and services…

“St. Jacobs is the perfect picturesque backdrop for wedding photos and we are able to offer various ceremony spaces including our stunning patio and the river’s edge as well as inside,” says Trella, “Cozy wood fireplaces, string lights, patio heaters & blankets, pizza oven, live edge wooden head tables, coach house cocktails & more make our charming venue is perfect for every season.”

“Our stunning oversized bridal suite and our groom suite offer great space to relax and be pampered for the day. The Denison Sunroom is available for bridal brunches photos and just a place to reflect. Our clients are those who want to lose themselves in the beauty of the venue and the surrounding area and enjoy the modern yet traditional space.”
