About Au Vieux Moulin
Nestled in the charming countryside of Rigaud, Quebec, Au Vieux Moulin is a boutique style venue. This intimate estate offers a great deal of flexibility, as events are granted exclusive use of the whole property. As an event venue, Au Vieux Moulin has been in operation under the ownership and management of Caroline and Doug Young for more than 20 years. The estate of Au Vieux Moulin is a mere 45 minutes from downtown Montreal, 30 minutes from Pointe-Claire, and 1 hour east of Ottawa.
Facilities and Capacity
The ‘Old Flour Mill’ is nearly 200 years old and was painstakingly renovated in 1990. It sits on ten acres of magical, natural beauty, awaiting your celebration. Both the Mill and its grounds are ready for weddings, with an outdoor ceremony, weather permitting, and indoor dining. The estate is decorated and landscaped in “French Country” fashion with white linens for the indoor and garden furniture, all managed under the eye of your watchful concierge. The Mill can accommodate 115 seated dinner guests in a single room or 180 people, a little less formally, in two rooms on separate floors.
While they will welcome your vendors and your own plans for beverages, their experience allows them to offer you referrals for local vendors whom they highly recommend. In addition, they have strong relationships with local wedding specialists which can take the stress out of planning such a big day. Their services also include a pre-decorated and landscaped venue in the style of romantic and rustic elegance.

Idilic! Peacfull! Beautiful! Elegant! I can't imagine having gotten married anywhere else. Caroline was amazing! Our wedding day was the only day it rained that week (of course) and Caroline was very supportive and had an excellent plan B. We didn't miss out on the site at all, despite the unfortunate weather. All of our guests commented it was the best wedding site they've ever been to. Lots of outdoors, lots of nature. Go check it out, you won't regret it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review AVM! It's so nice to hear that I was helpful to you and that it make a difference. Yes, it rained and rained but your wedding day was one of the loveliest of the season regardless. We wish you and Martin every happiness in your new married life together! My best, Caroline

We absolutely loved the venue we choose for our wedding. The mill is stunning and the grounds that surround it are breath taking. I would definitely recommend this venue for those getting married, especially if you want an outdoor ceremony, that is held outside near the gazebo.

This venue is perfect for an outdoor ceremony with a rustic-chic feel! The land is incredible and the venue is truly authentic. Caroline was fast and thorough in answering our questions and made us feel like everything was in control on the day of. Definitely a venue I recommend!

Caroline & Doug are amazing and their venue made our wedding day simply perfect. This venue is like a blank canvas that you fill with the vendors you like, your own decorations, etc. Tableware and chair covers can be rented directly from them or the caterer that you choose. Doug will set up the ceremony seating, as well as the reception tables and chairs as per your request. The one flaw is that if there is an event the night before yours, you will only have access to the space at 10 am the morning of your wedding. I had a great team of friends and family that took care of everything that morning and it all worked smoothly without a single glitch! We chose one of the caterers that the venue suggested (Pierre Desjardins) and could not be happier. Not only did they already know the venue and were accustomed to working in it, but the food and service were exceptional. My one complaint is that we were not free to visit the venue more than twice without having to pay. Otherwise, this venue is PERFECT!
Au Vieux Moulin's reply:
Hi Krystina, Thank you for taking the time to review AVM. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your day with us. I'm glad to read about your feelings about the site access. Since your wedding day, many upgrades have been made to the site decor, gardens and furniture. It does make it easier for our DIY couples such as yourselves to decorate and use the site with the time frames offered. When the site is not reserved on the previous day, we now offer a time frame (small fee applies for our time and earlier preparation of the site) for couples to decorate.
It was truly a pleasure to host your family a few years ago. I do remember that it was a gorgeous reception with all of your personal touches! I just saw your review ;-)! I hope that you are both happy and well! My best, Caroline
