@Sudak:  I’m getting married at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum. It’s BYOB, and super cute.

@sudak  It’s a great location because they have a chapel (former church) or a gazebo for the wedding ceremony, a covered picnic shelter and tent (no indoor hall), and fabulous locations for photos. Here are some links of weddings that took place there:

 Here’s photos that include shots of inside the chapel and photos taken at the museum:

Here you can see the picnic shelter and the gazebo (last photo):

And this is the wedding that made me fall in love with the location. The photos and the reception took place at the museum.

Some more info:

1.      It cost about $150/hour to rent the space

2.      You can bring all the alcohol, you’ll need a license

3.      You can have any caterer, but some are more suited than others

 

 

A few words of caution about this location:

1.      It’s a working museum, so there could be other ppl around (it’s never busy though)

2.      You can’t smoke anywhere on the property

3.      Your reception can’t go past 11pm (I’m moving the dancing/party part to a community centre)

4.      Bugs could be bad (but should be okay in August)

I had the exact same thoughts as you for my reception. If you’re looking for something in the city, Scotton Hall in the Glebe Community Centre is gorgeous on the inside and outside. It used to be a church and then was remodeled.

They only rent for weddings on Saturdays, as early as you’d like, until 1am. Prices round out to just over $100 per hour. With an LCBO Special Occassions Permit, you can bring in your own alcohol. At this time they are booking up Summer 2014, this place books up FAST.

For a information package, you can email Regis at [email protected]

Also, I’m having my ceremony less than 10 minutes away at Billings Estate Museum:

@Sudak:  The R.J. Kennedy Community Centre is less than 2km away at 1115 Dunning Road. It’s right beside (but separate from) the arena, so is not a classy place by any stretch of the imagination. You can book it through the city of Ottawa -> EastEndFacilitiesatottawa.ca or 613-580-2739

@Sudak:  Hi, a few of my friends used Sala San Marco and I believe it was BYOB (or at least the price for food and alcohol was AMAZING). Good luck planning! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sala San Marco is certainly NOT BYOB. If an establishment already has a liquor license, only in rare cases will they allow BYOB (and usually there’s quite the corking fee).
