The City of Owen Sound is well known for its beautiful waterfront outlooks and picturesque scenery. Located at the mouths of the Pottawatomi and Sydenham Rivers, on an inlet of Georgian Bay, it's home to some of the most striking views in all of Ontario, and the perfect spot to plan your upcoming wedding.
Regardless of the style of wedding you are planning, there are a variety of spaces to choose from. Stunning parkland and waterfront ceremony areas for outdoor weddings to spacious, accessible venues for indoor celebrations, the City of Owen Sound boasts an assortment of beautiful settings for your big day.
"My husband and I were looking for a venue that would accommodate a large crowd of both family and friends, but still feel quaint, while having the option of a back up should we be faced with inclement weather. We were married under the gazebo on what ended up being the most beautifully hot day of the summer! The view was amazing over the water; the air conditioned hall was perfect!
We were pleased that everything we needed for our vendors was on hand, and that the space allowed for endless decorating options, which we filled with many items from a local nursery for an indoor garden feel. The outdoor patio and gardens were ideal for taking in the warm evening while still enjoying not being too far from the fun of the reception! We would recommend this venue 100 times over.” -Louise C
