Flowers aren't the only thing blossoming this time of year. It’s wedding season, and if you’ve been dreaming of your BIG day, Northeastern Ontario has identified six unique venues for the special couples to make your “I Do’s” especially memorable!
Thinking of that rustic wedding held inside a hay barn with all the burlap and Mason jars as your Pinterest board will allow? Whether it’s inside the Smokin’ Barrel Saloon or out on the beautiful hillside, Von Doeler’s Ranch (Rutherglen, ON) can make your wishes come true—including horses for ceremonies and photos! Visit their website for cabin rentals and full package details.
Take “Be the star of your own show” to a whole other level when you take your vows center stage on the Historic Betty Speers Theatre and Stage at the Capitol Centre in North Bay. This is the perfect location for a Gatsby-themed wedding, with the venue’s historic elegance to really making you feel like a celebrity on your wedding day. Top the celebration off with a photo shoot on the 1929 Stairwell to Heaven.
You don’t have to be a rock collector to be married in the Vale Cavern at Science North, one of Sudbury's premiere attractions! This spacious rock cave, created out of blasted rock, provides a unique atmosphere your guests are sure to never forget!
If you’re really looking to leave a lasting impression, consider the Vale Chasm at Dynamic Earth and celebrate your union surrounded by natural rock seven storeys underground!
Maybe you love travelling the wilderness or living life on the road, always looking for the next BIG adventure to make lasting memories together, ultimately living a nomadic lifestyle. Experience the intimacy of a tipi in its filtered light during the day and a stunning glow at night to mark the first day of the promise of your life together.
Tie the knot aboard the Chief Commanda II out on the open water of Lake Nipissing in North Bay. The vessel allows you to have an outdoor wedding in an indoor space, and can cater to your every need. With the luxury of creating your own custom package, you can ensure your day is as unique as this wedding venue. For a truly northern look, be sure to take some photos with the Manitou Islands as your backdrop!
Mix a little history and culture in with your special day and celebrate in another unique way—in a traditional voyageur canoe! Your guides at Northern Spirit Adventures dress in voyageur or coureur de bois costumes as they carry you down the river, singing songs of the past. Based out of Smooth Rock Falls, Northern Spirit Adventures offers custom packages and is able to come to you.
No matter where you decide to tie the knot, Northeastern Ontario can offer BIG venues for those special memories. All the best to those of you out there planning such a momentous occasion!
