Wedding Testimonials Some Kind Words For Rocket

“Sophie and the team at Rocket Bakery went above and beyond to make our day incredible. Sophie was incredibly organized, knowledgable and responsive and removed the stress from the planning process. On the actual day of the wedding, the Rocket Room looked and felt just as we had intended it to – warm and inviting. From start to finish, our experience with Rocket as a wedding venue was perfect. We cannot thank you enough!

The moment my husband and I saw the Rocket Room at the Rocket Bakery we knew it was exactly what we wanted for our NYE wedding. The room is quaint – all hardwood and brick and hanging lights and on our wedding day it was magical! Sophie was a dream to work with. She was quick to answer all of our questions and she worked tirelessly to ensure everything was perfect for our evening. And it was.  The food was incredible and the staff were very professional and courteous. Our guests are still raving about the quantity and quality of the food and how incredibly nice the staff were. We are so happy we chose the Rocket Bakery!”

Suzanne + Eric Brewin – December 31, 2019

“Choosing the Rocket Room as the venue for our wedding was the absolute right choice! It has a beautiful cozy/rustic feel for an intimate reception. We were blown away by the quality of the food from our family-style meal, and all of our guests are still talking about how much they loved the meal as well. Definitely a standout! The room is already picture-perfect, with hanging lights that make the photos look beautiful. Our biggest endorsement has to go out to the Rocket staff! Sophie, our wedding coordinator took the stress out of planning for the event. She is reliable, prompt, and an excellent resource to lean on if you want opinions on food/drinks/decor/other vendors. The event was staffed very well on the night of, so there were no line ups at the bar. Overall it was an easy and pleasant experience to inquire about, book, plan, and execute the wedding. “

“My wife and I got married and had our reception in the Rocket Room. Their event planner, Sophie, was great to work with. She responded quickly and helped us design our day to suit us perfectly. They were able to accommodate our food restrictions and had many affordable menu packages. During the day of, the staff were friendly and present without being in anyone’s way. The food and drinks were served right on time and was delicious. Overall, we had an amazing experience and highly recommend the Rocket team for this kind of event.”

Samantha + Mikael  – October 19, 2019

“We were married in the rocket room, and I have nothing but positive things to say! After the wedding, I received multiple calls from guests raving over the food/venue. The staff were sweet and accommodating, and great to work with. Sophie was who I communicated with primarily, always responded professionally and in a timely manner. She made the planning process easy, and her questions on the plan of what times did I want to do things, made me realize several things I had been forgetting! Highly recommend the rocket room!”

Kelsey + Matt – September 28th, 2019

“Rocket is the best decision we could have made when it came to our venue! It fit our style exactly from the Edison lights and old wood floors to the brick wall and cozy feel! Sophie was so helpful during the whole process and planning our day couldn’t have been any easier. She is amazing to work with! We had multiple choices for food and dessert, they set up for the ceremony, switched over to reception quickly, and cleaned up at the end of the night! We didn’t have to worry about anything. Our guests raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was, the bartenders and staff were so friendly and overall it was a perfect night! “

Ashley + Katrina – September 29, 2019

“Such a beautiful space! The food was amazing and the staff were so accommodating helping us with food selection, set up and takedown. The stunning heritage space needs so little for decor, we went completely DIY with lots of florals. I highly recommend the late-night mashed potato bar, it was a hit with absolutely everyone!”

Rebecca + Nic – September 14th, 2019

“Rocket Room was such a perfect venue! Minimal decor required, amazing food/ service and very cost effective! All of our guests commented on how beautiful a space it was and how delicious the food was. We had so much fun. Highly recommend!”

Victoria + Joe – September 7th, 2019

“The first time I saw wedding photos at the Rocket Room I fell in love, so when we got engaged I knew this was the place for us. The amazing staff made everything go so smoothly, from the planning to the day of, and all of my questions in between. We had a dessert-only reception and as usual, the food was to die for. I don’t think we could have picked a better venue!” 

Ashley + Matthew – August 4th 2019

“Our wedding ceremony and reception at The Rocket Room was absolutely amazing! From the staff, to the food, to the venue itself, we could not have asked for a more perfect place to celebrate our special day. A big thank you to The Rocket and the amazing people who helped make our day so incredible.” 

Megan + Joel – July 27th, 2019

“We love Rocket and have spent many enjoyable afternoons there together, so it seemed like a natural fit for our nuptials. From the first interaction to days after the event Sophie and her team at Rocket Weddings took care of us in amazing fashion. They made the process easy and gave us a sense of calm – which matters because there are a lot of items to juggle when getting married! She guided us through the process for choosing the room layout, food and drink choices, timing and options for the particulars of the days leading up to and the actual wedding. The staff were polite and on point during the ceremony and reception (we held both at the venue). We have older relatives that attended and we were encouraged to use the back entrance on Duckworth to avoid the stairs. Sophie has connections with planners, DJ’s, officiants and photographers and will provide honest opinions about her experiences to help you make great choices.

We perceived great value from a financial perspective as well. Other venues were usually more expensive and offered less in terms of size, scope and services. Thank you to Rocket Weddings for making our day the best it could have possibly been. We feel like we had the perfect wedding, and isn’t that what it’s all about?”

Samantha + Dean – May 11th, 2019

“I had the pleasure of booking the third floor of the Rocket for my wedding. I loved the old St. John’s rustic vibe that the building portrays. Exposed brick walls and pretty Edison lights. Planning this wedding from Ontario was much easier than expected as Sophie made everything so smooth for us. She was kind and helpful. The food here was delicious, full of flavour and plentiful! My guests are still talking about the food! I am so thankful we had our reception here and the staff were excellent!”

Melissa + James – September 1st, 2018

“The Rocket Room’s cozy charm made it the perfect venue for our DIY evening wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. Sophie and her staff were always accommodating and very helpful answering all of our questions — and also offered advice about details we hadn’t even thought of. Since the room itself is so beautiful, decorating was easy and minimal. Guests raved about the food and the atmosphere, and the dance floor was packed all night! “

Lauren + Camero – August 31, 2018

“Rob and I decided to go with Rocket Bakery for our wedding venue for both the ceremony and reception. We wanted a laid back, fun-filled wedding with special touches tailored to us a couple, which included supporting local business, and Rocket gave us just that. Sophie and the rest of the staff were great to work with and very accommodating. The owner made it a priority to visit with us anytime we were there. The staff at the reception were fantastic! Kind, professional, and tons of smiles-just what we wanted. The food was just as good as we heard it would be. Would recommend the Rocket Room not just for a wedding but for any event.”

Alana + Rob – August 18, 2018

 “We loved having our wedding at the Rocket! The space is beautiful and the bar staff were superb and very friendly, even conducting a last-minute screech in for guests. Everyone said what an amazing venue it was and how much fun they had.”

Jessie + Alex – August 10, 2018

“We were extremely pleased with how everything went on the big day. The staff that night were exceptional all around. Really appreciated the effort in setting up the fans for what proved to be one of the hottest days of the year. Food was also great — heard multiple people compliment the fish cakes in particular. It was a relaxed, fun evening for us. Kudos to all involved.”

Kym + Andrew – July 21, 2018

“The Rocket Room Upstairs at Rocket Bakery And Fresh Food” – what a room, it’s rustic, cozy and just fun! Service is amazing and so accommodating. Sophie, I could see you running around answering all demands, thank you so much and the rest of the staff were awesome. Special shout out to your waitress Samantha, she was AWESOME! she was just there every time we needed something and got it in seconds. Not to forget about the food and dessert, we thought we would have leftovers and everything was wiped clean. I think that says it all!” 

Bassma + Andrew – July 28, 2018

“I had the wedding of my dreams at the Rocket Room. The venue, the staff, the food, and the atmosphere were everything I hoped for and more. I had an evening ceremony followed by a cocktail reception and dance. It was the perfect venue to have both the ceremony and reception – the staff were very efficient in flipping the room following the ceremony that I honestly didn’t even notice it happening. The food was amazing – it was all delicious and there was sooo much of it. We got lots of compliments from our wedding guests about it. The staff even let us take home the leftovers which I thought was very nice because I know some venues don’t do that. One thing I really loved about having my wedding at Rocket was that it needs minimal decorating because it’s already so beautiful to begin with. I was a DIY bride so I had some decorating ideas and the staff were so accommodating letting me come into the space multiple times to figure out the whole plan. They even let me use some cute furniture from the office so I wouldn’t have to bring in extra pieces. We still receive compliments to this day about how nice the bartenders and wait staff were at our wedding. Everyone was so friendly and the service was impeccable. Everyone at Rocket went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect and I’m so thankful for that. I think Rocket Room is the number one wedding venue in the city, hands down.”

“Everyone had a REALLY great night on Saturday! We are so thankful for all of [Rocket’s] help with this, I know this was no small feat to put together… The waitstaff that night/the next day were fantastic and we can’t say enough good things about how helpful and professional they were to us and our guests. All of our guests raved and raved about the food, and it seemed like we ordered just the right amount, thanks to [Rocket’s] advice. The room impressively stayed cooler than I thought it would too considering the humidity outside, and having the back deck open to cool off was great too. I also liked how [Rocket] switched up the room layout for the brunch, it was easy to get around the tables and chat with everyone.”

“Thank you all. It was so much fun and your team was fabulous. All our friends and family loved the space and the food, and were thrilled with the doggie bags for the plane rides home! Kudos to all of you. Thanks again for being so great to work with. This won’t be the last time you see us!”

Aurora + Danny – June 17, 2018

“We had a wonderful time on Saturday. The venue was perfect and you and all the other staff were so helpful and friendly throughout. In terms of feedback, we especially appreciated how smooth communication was leading up to the event. We also really appreciated that all the costs were clearly laid out at all times throughout the process – we never once felt like there were any “hidden” fees … Overall we just really got the impression that you and all the staff with whom we interacted were on our side and really wanted us to have a great wedding.”

Danielle + David – June 9, 2018

“Both our ceremony and reception were held at Rocket Bakery & Fresh Food in The Rocket Room. As far as I’m concerned, every couple should get married at Rocket! Sophie Blais and her team are absolute rockstars. I can’t even count the number of emails or questions I sent to Sophie, but she always replied quickly and with all of the details I needed. We had an early afternoon ceremony and an evening reception. The staff set everything up for the ceremony, then flipped the room for the reception, and flipped it again for the dance. Every staff member that I encountered on our wedding day went out of their way to be kind and helpful not only to myself and my husband, but to all of our guests. In chatting with our guests all night, every single one of them commented on how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the food was! Since the Rocket Room is so beautiful already, I made my own minimalist decorations, which the staff happily set up and took down (for no extra charge!) making the venue truly perfect. I cannot recommend Rocket enough for any couples looking for a small, intimate, rustic wedding venue!”
