"We had our ceremony and reception at the prairie firehouse this past June. Anna and the staff were amazing! We threw our wedding together in less than 2 months due to my moms cancer getting worse. Anna was a lifesaver and so understanding. I grew up in Brandon but my husband and I live in Wpg. We could not find anywhere in Wpg that could accommodate the small wedding we wanted and our budget. Anna was so accommodating and we will never forget her kindness! She helped make an extremely stressful and emotional time in our lives as best as it could be. The decorations were beyond beautiful and the food was delicious! The venue was so unique and we get lots of compliments and inquiries when people see our photos! Every daughter dreams of her mother being at her wedding and sharing in her special day. My mother and I would not have had this experience if it weren’t for the amazing people at The Prairie Firehouse!"

Thank you for making our day not only special but more than I could have asked for!"

"We held our wedding at the Firehouse Restaurant and everything was amazing! Anna and everyone at the Firehouse were so awesome to work with. From our first meeting with Anna we were confident we had found the perfect venue for our special day. Anna was beyond accommodating and helped make our wedding day fabulous! She thought of every little detail and granted every wish, no matter how crazy! Through the process of planning our wedding and to this day, I feel like everyone at the Firehouse is extended family. We are always welcomed with a smile and a cheerful hello or a hug! Future couples getting married, do yourselves a favour and get married at the Firehouse!!!! You will enjoy your wedding day and be stress free!"

"Best. Day. Ever! Getting married? Look no further!
"The prairie firehouse was better than we could have ever imagined. Anna + staff were so open to any ideas we had and willing to take on any challenge. When it came down to our special day, the venue was absolutely stunning. The food was perfect, the decorations were exactly what we wanted, and the atmosphere made it magical. Our friends and family were SO impressed with the Firehouse, along with Chris and I. Having the patio doors open, to use the patio during the evening was a genius idea! Dance floor was the perfect size for our wedding. If you're interested in the prairie firehouse, I strongly urge you to do it as you definitely will not regret it ✨thank you again for making our day one we will never forget!!!"

"We had our wedding reception for 130 people at Prairie Firehouse on February 18, 2017. It was perfect!
We met with Anna many times in the year leading up to our wedding. She was professional, incredibly helpful, level-headed and reassuring. She always had excellent ideas and suggestions and was available to talk at any time. We had our band cancel on us five weeks before the wedding. Anna suggested and connected us with a new band that she highly recommended. We had never heard them, so we booked based on her recommendation. They were awesome! Played a wide variety of music, and kept our guests up and dancing all night. Anna went above and beyond to ensure we had everything taken care of leading up to our wedding. The venue is beautiful. We hardly decorated because we wanted the Firehouse to show off it's character and charm.
Our menu was selected with help from Rebekah, the head chef. When we went in to do a tasting we were blown away with the quality of the meal. And we were not disappointed the night of the wedding! The meal was the most delicious wedding food we've ever had and our guests have not stopped raving about how delicious everything was! Everything was cooked fresh in their restaurant using as many local ingredients as possible. They catered to our celiac guests as well and were diligent in serving them a gluten-free meal.
The waitstaff that night was thorough and professional. We had a waiter assigned to the head table who ensured our drinks were full and we had everything we needed. When each table went to the buffet, the waiters cleared the empty glasses, filled the water glasses and kept everything running smoothly.
The bartenders were talented and also put on a show! We had a bartender who did flare bartending and put on shows with fire breathing! The guests loved it! It was another detail that helped create the magical feel of the evening.
One of the best parts of having a wedding at Prairie Firehouse is that they do the full set up and take down. We dropped our decorations off on the Friday and reviewed a few details. When we arrived on Saturday for the reception, it looked exactly like our vision!! Perfectly decorated, every table was how we wanted. We were so impressed! They nailed the vision! At the end of the night, we were able to leave while the Firehouse cleaned up and packaged our decorations up. We went back to pick them up later in the week.
Overall, the entire experience of working with Anna, Rebekah and the staff at Prairie Firehouse was incredible. We were well taken care of, and our guests were very impressed with the character of the restaurant, the attentiveness of the staff and the high level of quality in the meal provided.
We would highly recommend selecting Prairie Firehouse as the venue for a wedding reception to everyone! You will love it!"

"After an extensive search for a wedding venue in Brandon, we decided on the Prairie Firehouse. We can't say enough how grateful we are to Anna, Chef Rebekah and Sarah for going above and beyond to make our wedding a complete success. We highly recommend the Prairie Firehouse both as a wedding venue as well as a fantastic restaurant. Everything from the decorations, to the food and the awesome service contributed to making our special day one to remember forever!"

"We were married at Prairie Firehouse on October 9, 2016 and we would highly recommend it as a wedding venue. We had the ceremony and reception at the Firehouse, and it was a perfect location for both parts!
Working with Anna and all of the Prairie Firehouse staff to plan our wedding was an amazing experience. Anna has experience with event planning so she made sure we had considered every single detail and also gave us plenty of great suggestions! We made all of our own decorations, but Anna did offer to price them out for us as needed. The venue itself is a beautiful space and not much is needed to add to it.
The day of our wedding was made incredibly easy and stress-free as the Firehouse staff set everything up for us (all we had to do was drop everything off a couple days before). They were very accommodating for our music preferences, managing the songs for our ceremony and first dances and then allowing us to make our own playlist for the evening.
The food was delicious! We had several guests tell us that they loved everything. Anna and the chef helped us come up with the perfect Thanksgiving buffet menu while catering to the allergies and sensitivities of our guests. They even made our favourite desserts - pumpkin pie and apple crisp - in lieu of a wedding cake.
We were able to take photos upstairs and in the tower of the Firehouse which have turned out to be beautiful memories of the day! Thank you so much to Anna and all the staff at PFH for making our day perfect!"
