If you’ve seen my work, it’s no secret that I love a good outdoor adventure! Sometimes, though, it’s just not appealing to run away to a mountaintop to elope just the two of you. If you love the outdoors and adventure, I’ve narrowed down all the options to bring you the best wedding venues near Ottawa.
If you’re planning your wedding, finding a venue and photographer are usually the first items on the to do list.
If you’re having an intimate wedding and you want something a bit offbeat, this is an awesome option! It’s central to downtown so easy for your guests, and you can host everyone in style while enjoying delish food in a midcentury modern aesthetic!
If you’re looking for a centrally located, character filled venue option in Ottawa, this is it! With 12 foot ceilings and huge windows, this 1920s historical building is a great spot to host your intimate wedding or elopement.
This gorgeous glass-ceilinged 1900s building is only 15 minutes from Downtown Ottawa. If you love exposed brick and a more urban vibe that still has plenty of space, this is a super accessible option that looks amazing!
If you’re into retro mid-century decor, wraparound porches, and sunny golden fields, this place is perfect! You can take a virtual tour on their site to check it out! It’s located in Prince Edward County, about 2.5 hours from Ottawa.
Adelina is located in Gatineau, Quebec, and is about an hour drive from Ottawa. It has stunning outdoor spaces and a beautiful loft for dining.
Open from May til October, this estate is available for small outdoor wedding ceremonies. There is a paid parking lot for guests and a TON of options for where to hold your ceremony (just keep in mind you’ll have to host your reception elsewhere!). You can get more info on how to book and permits here.
If you want to have a more adventurous small wedding or elopement, Mont-Tremblant is a beautiful location! It’s only 2 hours from Ottawa, has plenty of hiking trails with beautiful views. The village is picturesque and has great restaurants, pubs, and boutiques. There are great Airbnbs to stay at as well as plenty of cute condos with mountain views.
Located in Low, Quebec about an hour from Ottawa, this gorgeous venue is perfect for an intimate wedding. Beautiful peaked windows let in rays of light, and there are so many gorgeous spots to hold your ceremony and chill, have a drink, and enjoy time with your guests.
This is perfect if you want an outdoor wedding, but still want the convenience of a beautiful getting ready space, an open air cocktail hour, and service throughout the day. Evermore is about 45 minutes west of downtown Ottawa, this is a beautiful venue! You can check out a romantic fall wedding for some inspo!
The next best thing to having a tropical destination wedding! Surrounded by exotic plants within the greenhouse, you’ll love the intimate space – and bonus that it’s a short drive from downtown Ottawa.
I’m a huge advocate for doing your wedding day your way. If having a chill, outdoor ceremony followed by a BBQ, campfire, and vintage airstream open-bar trailer and lounge sounds like your jam, then go for it! You can also stay at a beautiful A-frame cabin in the woods and get married under the stars. (I can help recommend great places in the area!) There are tons of amazing options to host your guests and still have a fun outdoor wedding day.
