    Gui and Gen were nothing but excellent to us on our wedding day we cant thank them enough. Everything was great the grounds were beautiful for our pictures and the placement inside, magical. We loved the food and have had our guest just rave about our wedding. Some of my family and guest also said "that's the best wedding ive ever been to." "that's going to be a hard wedding to top". again great venue and I highly recommend it!

    I am someone who is easily stressed when planning events. In the weeks leading up to my wedding, a number of people kept asking me if I was stressed and I would simply reply with "No, everything that I could possibly need to worry about is already being taken care of by Bean Town." However, even though I read all of their reviews & knew I had nothing to worry about, words truly cannot describe how amazing this place and their staff truly is. Leading up to our wedding day I continually pictured my dream wedding, knowing full well that it may not all work out the way I want it to, but somehow they made it all happen. The grounds are breathtaking, the food is to die for and the service is out of this world. They staff work their asses off and do everything in their power to make your day perfect and ours truly was. You really do feel like a king and queen as the bride and groom. I did not hear any complaints for any of my guests and almost all told me it was the best wedding they've ever attended, some even said it was better than their own children's. Genevieve is so easy to work with leading up to your wedding and replies to any inquires you have quickly. Pascale follows you the day of your wedding and is takes care of all of your wants and needs. Our day was so organized and everyone there was so attentive, there was no detail missed. I hope I am lucky enough to attend another wedding here as a guest and relive the magical day they create all over again.

    They truly are terrific !!

    This review honestly doesn’t even explain enough about how amazing Bean Town Ranch is.

    Unfortunately due the the covid -19 pandemic my fiancé and I had to over come some financial hurtles. We reschedule our wedding and the finally had to cancel our wedding.

    Although we won’t be having our wedding there, I wanted to express how amazing they have been regardless. They were so flexible and not to mention their communication is very good and fast. I can’t even count the amount of times I emailed them and had a response within the day sometimes within 10 min.

    We had come across some miss-communication with them in the end and when they saw we were upset they reimbursed us with our deposit.

    This are truly about the wedding couple and if they make a mistake or there is some kind of Miss- communication they do their best to immediately solve and come up with solutions.

    They truly understand the financial burden that comes along with planning a wedding and they have consistently put the feelings of my fiancé and I above their own business to make sure we were happy.

    I know any couple will be happy to have their wedding there and I will recommend them time and again.

    They truly give you so much for the rates they charged compared to majority of wedding venues in Ottawa.

    I would give 50/10. This place is magical and I would have absolutely nothing negative to say about it and the owners and staff are the best, making sure everything is on point and perfect. A dream come true.

    We can not even begin to tell you how amazing Bean Town is!!! We got married at there this past July and they made our day better then we could have ever imagined!
    Genevieve and Guy run the venue and they are beyond amazing! They make it feel as though you are the only wedding that they are involved in, they give you 110%. They help walk you through every step leading up to the wedding and work with you. Genevive is honestly like a fairy godmother!
    All of our guest raved about the food- which was AMAZING! Everyone complimented on the venue and the staff.
    Every single staff member at Bean Town Ranch was extremely professional and so inviting, they made everybody at our wedding feel at home.
    I would recommend Bean Town Ranch to anyone! They are very reasonably prices and do not disappoint.

    Picture perfect fairytale wedding

    I cannot express how happy I am with Beantown receptions. They are absolutely amazing and are always available to help and answer questions. I have emailed them at 2am 4am 6am 10 pm doesn’t matter what time they get back to you ASAP. I swear they are machines 😂😂 my day was everything I imagined and more. Genevieve pascale and Caroline are absolute miracle workers. If you have the chance to book here do you. You will not be disappointed I promise. I had to postpone twice and each time they were ready to talk and help me through it all. I even got numerous personal calls from the owner just to check in when the pandemic hit!!! I love all of them and everything about my day!! I wouldn’t change a thing ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Rustic weddings like no other!

    My husband and I got married two months ago, and other than saying 'I do' to each other, choosing Bean Town Ranch as our venue was the best decision we made.
    From the moment we first went to Bean Town, my husband and I knew it was 'the one'. It is an exquisite venue- rustic, outdoorsy, unpretentious, charming, whimsical, and homey- all while being downright beautiful.
    Throughout our engagement every time we talked with any Bean Town staff they were professional, helpful and enthusiastic. Genevieve, Guy, Pascale and Caroline, in particular, are perhaps the loveliest people you'll ever be lucky enough to meet. They truly seem to adore their jobs and by the end of your wedding I dare you not to feel sad when it's time to say goodbye to them!
    Leading up to the wedding there is not a single detail that goes unnoticed or undiscussed by the Bean Town team. Genevieve and Pascale are so passionate about giving you your dream wedding that there is simply no way they are going to let anything come in the way of that. I could go on and on about every perfect part of our wedding- the pre-ceremony pep talk by Genevieve, the horse drawn carriage to the pavilion, the wet cloths handed out to help cool down during the heat wave, the hors d'oeuvres that were so delicious and plentiful some guests thought that was going to be the dinner, the decorations and arrangements of the dining hall, the breathtaking fireworks and the most romantic and gorgeous cabin to spend the night in.
    Perhaps above all else, however, is the way the staff treat you. As bride and groom, they make you feel as if your wedding is the one and only wedding that ever REALLY mattered and yet they organize and execute it with the skill and precision of people who do this every day of the year. That's the magic of Bean Town Ranch.
    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you SO much, for giving us the most beautiful and joyous day ever! You deserve so much more than 5 stars!
