I am new to the boards because I recently got engaged. I am planning to get married likely next fall in the Ottawa area; however our church is south east of Ottawa (Metcalfe area) and we are looking for a venue around that area or at least between there and the south end of the city. Somewhere in Metcalfe, or around the racetrack area, toward South Keys or maybe even south of Orleans.. not sure. We don't want out of town guests to have to travel all over town for our wedding and they will likely be staying in the city, so we are not opposed to a reception in the city either but of course budget is a major concern. I'm also not a huge fan of big ballrooms...
Our guest list is going to be about 150.
I am wondering if anyone has ideas of where we could go. There are a couple golf courses but not sure if any are better than others. Other than that I can't really see many options.
I like the idea of something out in the country since we will be there anyway for the ceremony, but it doesn't seem like there is much out there.
Ive heard of Stanley's maple farm, but it has mixed reviews that I have seen so far.
Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated! It is overwhelming!
