Ottawa, ON, Canada < change city >



August, 2010 in Ottawa

"Our wedding was amazing. The Courtyard Restaurant had a fire the month before, but Foundation accommodated us and the Courtyard Staff took care of the food and all the details. Everything went very smoothly, better than we could have ever imagined. Our guests were in awe and extremely impressed. They loved everything right down to the smallest of details. I wanted to personalize the little things to reflect us and what we love most. It truly was a magical day, one of the best days of our lives. Ottawa is a great city. Our guests enjoyed tours of the city, restaurants, shopping and visiting many of the major attractions all within walking distance of the hotel, church and restaurant."
