New as of May of 2019, Storehouse 408 is a truly amazing transformation of an old building within the Cambridge neighborhood of Hespeler. Boasting a proper pairing of charm, imagination and neutrality, couples have the flexibility to plan a wedding that is uniquely theirs.

With a year-round, intimate and flexible venue…Storehouse 408 truly has it all!

Who would have thought that someone could transform a Beer Store into a stunning wedding and event space? Owners Amy and Matt Jakubaitis’ dream of owning a wedding venue came to life one morning when they drove past an old building for sale in their neighborhood…it was none other than the local beer store.

While this building did not contain old world charm at the time, this location did happen to have ample parking, outdoor space, was big enough for events but small enough to feel intimate and was within minutes to the highway. With all of those glowing benefits, Amy and Matt realized that they could inject charm and beauty into the space with enough hard work, dedication and imagination. Fast-forward a few years and Amy and Matt, with the help of Amy’s parents Ray and Kathy who play an integral role in maintaining the space, had completely revolutionized that once standing Beer Store into a remarkable wedding venue with the completion of Storehouse 408!

“We wanted to offer our clients the ease of flexibility. They can choose from multiple caterers, decorate the space however they wish, layout the floor plan and create their timeline however suits best.” – Amy and Matt Jakubaitis, Owners of Storehouse 408

The Venue…

It is modern meets industrial with a hint of glam at Storehouse 408. With a classic exposed brick wall, polished concrete floors, black exposed HVAC, an overhead garage-style door and modern streamlined chandeliers covered in gold and black accents, Storehouse 408 attracts those looking for a modern and flexible space.

“We have such a personal connection to our space, and seeing people come into Storehouse 408, imagine their wedding day and finally live out their big day in front of our eyes is such a gratifying experience. We want to do everything we can to help people achieve their best wedding day ever, in the way that truly suits them best.” – Amy and Matt Jakubaitis, Owners of Storehouse 408

Couples looking for an intimate, minimalist, private and unique venue will swoon over the endless entertaining options with the indoor and outdoor areas that are available to them.

“It seems contradictory, but the space is somewhat of a blank canvas, however it still has personality! It is modern and neutral, but has some fun elements like the “Hi There” tiles and the rollers from the old beer store at the main entrance. It allowed us to bring in our own décor without being concerned about matching the existing finishes.” – Deirdre, 2019

Whether for cocktail hour or ceremony, the outdoor courtyard with a six-foot gas fireplace and overhead garage-style door is a picture-perfect backdrop. On a warm summer night, the garage-style door can be split into two and kept open to bring the romance of the outdoors inside while partying the night away!

“We loved the fireplace at the far end of the patio. We had our ceremony in front of it and when it got cold in the evening, we were able to take a quick break to comfortably sit outside by the fire, get some fresh air and quietly mingle with some of our guests.” – Deirdre, 2019
