Jessica has been great! And the venue is breathtaking. We are so excited for June 11th 2016
Allison Cadieux, Married on 14/01/2017
Our wedding was amazing! This venue is fantastic and Jessica makes it very easy! I frequently emailed her over the year I was planning the wedding and she always got back to me within a day. The staff are very professional and accommodating! I would highly recommend Le Belvedere for your wedding!
Aaron Ma, Married on 29/12/2016
From the first visit to the end of our wedding, we felt at ease and organized. Jessica and Kyle were amazing and we could not have had a better wedding. The attention to detail was remarkable.

This place was amazing! Never having had a wedding before (and clearly nervous about everything that had to be done), Jessica and Kyle were so helpful and so responsive. The email response times were unbelievable, I would ask the smallest thing (and sometimes the stupidest thing) ... View more and they would reply immediately. The service throughout our wedding was fabulous! I have never been to a venue before where all of the servers put the food down for the table at the same time - the littlest details showed how truly professional this wedding venue is. We did not have a single complaint about the food! We actually had people raving about both the venue and the food. To this day (4 months later) we still have people commenting on our wedding and for that we couldn't be more grateful. We also weren't nickeled and dimed, the prices were fair and there were no surprises. Small extras that other venues charge for (like a bonfire and cake cutting fees) did not exist! Such a relief. This place deserves 5 stars all around.

Jessica and Kyle know what they are doing. Period. Our wedding could not have run more smoothly and they have an incredible staff - not to mention the location of the venue is stunning. Jessica will answer every single (slightly annoying) email with speed, patience and attention ... View more to detail, and I found Le Belvedere to be far more accommodating than other venues for small changes/requests that we had. We fully recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in the Ottawa area.
