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.
The wedding planners were very helpful, the food was exceptional, the service was impecable. If you check out the website, you can also use their group menus instead of the wedding menus which are similar and less expensive.
The red table runners we rented really added a punch of colour to the white linens for the dinner tables and kept our theme consistent. Their prices are very reasonable and they were extremely helpful.
Arie was amazing, we got our cruise and flights for half the price we found online. Find a deal online, send him the details and chances are he'll get you a better price or find you an even better option.
The church is beautiful. Mai-yu is the organist and everyone commented on how beautifully she played. The ceremony wasn't too long, perfect for the little ones in your bridal party.
There were mix-ups with the reservations, they never organized our rehearsal dinner so we had to go elsewhere and the bridal package was never delivered to our room for our wedding night. The rooms were very nice and the location is ideal as it's right in the heart of the Byward Market and close to everything. Given the location, the price was very reasonable.
When set up it was stunning. For dinner we had a very intimate setting with lots of candles. For the cocktail reception the tables were removed for dancing and there was seating available in the atrium and bar area. It has a great little raised section that we reserved for the wedding party where you can look down over the dance floor.
