Top Ontario Wedding Venues I am Dying to Photograph at!

We all have a list of locations and places we are dying to work at, and mine is definitely dream venues of mine in Ontario. I have many destination (but not beach) locations that are on my bucket list but we will save that post for another day.

I will start by saying that all my Ontario venues that I have worked at so far are all so beautiful and would love to be able to photograph at them all again. However I have a list of Ontario Wedding Venues that I haven’t photographed at yet and is definitely want to be able to cross some of them off.

So here we go;

Archeo – Distillery District
This one has been on my list for awhile due to the fact, that I am mostly known for barns and outdoor weddings and well, I LOVE the city and the magic it can create with portraits. They also have an amazing ceremony location and the indoor offers both charm of a bit rustic but also a bit of an industrial look. The possibilities are endless with running around the city and even just walking the beautiful Distillery District. Not to mention lots of local hotels!

AROWHON PINES – Algonquin Ontario Wedding Venue
Ok, this one is due to the fact that growing up my family had a cottage and let’s say we made sooo many crazy and fun and joyful memories there. What I like about this wedding venue is that it is a resort for all guests to enjoy all the amenities but also the love of a cottage wedding combined into one! It’s views from the dock create a backdrop no one will ever forget for your “I do’s”.
So if you are a cottage and lake lover, this one is definitely for you!

KORTRIGHT CENTRENorth York Wedding Venue
This venue is for all you that love hiking through the trees and being surrounded by nature. You have beautiful outdoor ceremony options that boast trees that just engulf around you. The indoor space with the windows for roof and beautiful string lights from the ceiling make it feel like you are looking out at the stars. Even though you are inside for your reception you have floor to ceiling windows that make you feel you like you are outside. Definitely one to check out.

HOTEL X – Toronto Wedding Venue
Back in Toronto with another beautiful option but this Lakefront Hotel offers so much for the city and lake views. The ROOFTOP for your ceremony makes you feel like you are at a tropical destination or you can face the city, again so many options. Now the inside reception space is literally just all windows which offers views of a beautiful garden terrace and the sunsets behind you as you eat your dinner. GAH this is definitely a top of list venue for me.

KURTZ ORCHARDS – Niagara, Ontario Wedding Venue
This one is truthfully my number one location, and the reason is; they allow you to host your wedding reception in the trees under the stars. They have lights around them to keep the mood and really romantic vibe. It is settled around mature orchards, vineyard and the possibilities within the venue is endless. If dining outside under the stars isn’t for you, the beautiful white tent is another great option and can open up the sides to make it feel like an indoor/outdoor reception.
Honestly if you are considering this location and still looking for your photographer please choose me 🙋‍♀️
