SOME THINGS YOU NEVER FORGET & ALWAYS RETURN TO..
FOOD, EXPERIENCES &
We're so glad your here.
We are three best friends and a passionate as heck team. We do what we love and love what we do.
Through the years, we have taken our passions and turned them into successful and trend forward brands in the hospitality industry. Our love for connection with people over food, experiences, and celebration has inspired this collection of unique brands that you'll never forget and always return to.
We've seen 15 years in the hospitality industry and we feel like we are just getting started. Our love for travel, food, wine, and planning has ended us up in many places, but St. Jacobs is our favourite yet. Our names are Trella, Stephanie, and Kristi. The "Stella" comes from Stephanie and Trella's university nickname- inseparable besties, Stella (clever, right?). Since then, we have committed ourselves to learning everything we can about hospitality and how to make it an even richer place to be. The love began in our restaurant days, shifting to high-level catering, ultimately ending us here- wedding venue owners and hoteliers- and we couldn't be happier.
You can be confident that our businesses are an extension of who we are and expressions of a set of unified core values - prioritizing people, acceptance, excellence, and love. Our team is filled with vibrant, smart, independent, and respected individulas with their own incredible gifts in the world of hospitality. As we grow, our promise to our past and future clients is to maintain our core value, putting you first, while always respecting one another and the integrity of the industry we are changing for the better.
If you are a Stella couple, client, or friend, you can be sure that you are in the best most caring hands out there. There isn't much we wouldn't do for family, and Stella is the definition of family.
Welcome to our world.
This call for a celebration!! Or at least a venue tour.
It's likely you're on our website because you have stumbled upon one, or all, of our brands. Well, if you're engaged, then we've got some things to show you. All three Stella Venues are owned and operated by us with each venue upholding the same Stella Standard as the other. All with their own personalities, there is something for everybody. Our venues are boutique and do not require a big design eye to make them beautiful. While you can make each your own, we set a bridal tone by including custom and trend forward embellishments for your day's backdrop. Take a look for yourself.

SETTING THE BAR EVERYONE SHOULD AIM TO MEET.
It's almost impossible to match the passion you'll get with our Gilt Catering team.
Gilt Catering Co. has forever changed the "wedding food" standard and culinary culture for the better. We work beyond the kitchen walls and value engagement with those we get to work with. Our need to encompass an event as a whole, from flavours, to flow, to cohesiveness, and knowledge optimizes any guest experience we are in control of.
We understand what it means to feed a hundred of your closest friends and family. To us, food is more than meal- it is bringing your loved ones together, it is saying "thank you", and it is saying "we love you". Food is our love language and we want to share it with you on what could be some of the most important days of your life.
Gilt Catering is the exclusive caterer of The Stella Collective, but our reach has gotten far. Our catering team is lucky to work with incredible venue friends, industry vendors, passionate people, and corporate clientele. Gilt Catering Co. will always be at the heart of what The Stella Collective is, who we are, and where we have come from.
Get ready for unique experiences and unforgettable celebrations with us.
