I'm looking for some new suggestions for our wedding venue. Given that we'd like to get married this fall we've been having trouble finding places that meet our criteria and have availability. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
- Outdoor ceremony, indoor reception (no tent)
- Capacity for 120-150 people (exclusive use - no other weddings taking place)
- Somewhat outdoorsy / laidback but pretty (it would be ideal to be near water) - nothing too fancy feeling
- Not a golf course or banquet hall (wineries, breweries, barns, farms, restaurants, concert venues, resorts, etc.
- Anywhere within a 3-hr
radius of Toronto (Muskoka, Niagara, Caledon, Prince Edward County – all
Venues we've looked into so far are: Muskoka (Hidden Valley, Severn Lodge, Bayview Wildwood, Port Cunnington, Arrowhon Pines, Sherwood Inn, Rocky Crest, Grandview, Deerhurst, Windermere House, Patterson-Kaye, JW Marriott Rosseau, Clevelands House, Hillside Barn, Muskoka Boat & Heritage Centre, Kee in Bala), Prince Edward County (Isaiah Tubbs, Waring House), Niagara (Holland Marsh Wineries, Queen's Landing, Royal Cambridge, Honsberger Estate) Toronto and surrounding area (Rockway, Black Creek Pioneer Village, Kortright, Estate Venues, King Valley Golf Club, Fantasy Farms, Belcroft Estates, Millcroft Inn, Slit Barn, Steamwhistle, Waterstone Estates, Herdner Estatesm Stonefield, Gambrel Farm, Cambium Farms, Halton Museum, Hockley Valley).
My final question for you is this: am I being way too picky / unrealistic with my list of requirements outlined above? Do I need to readjust expectations?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
