    Absolutely amazing

    We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect venue for our wedding. Everything was perfect. The hall and venue looked fantastic. Being able to have an outdoor ceremony and then move everyone inside for the reception was great.

    I can't say enough good things about Leslie. She was amazing to deal with from start to finish.

    Highly recommend!

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Thank you, Melissa for your kind words. You were a pleasure to work with start to finish. No matter the hiccups that happened before or during your day, you kept a smile on your face. Congratulations to you and Tom.

    couldn't have asked for more

    I could not have asked for a better venue. It was sentimental to us to have our wedding here as we did our engagement photos there when my dad was still with us and when he passed in May, we knew we wanted to move up the wedding so we didn't lose anyone else before we tied the knot after 14 years.

    Leslie is absolutely amazing in every way. She helps tame your wedding blurred brain and keeps everything the way it should be. She is your go-to, and she does her job effortlessly and honestly without her I think at times I would have gone crazy. Planning a wedding in 3 months is hard enough, but Leslie made it easy to focus and find the things that truly mattered about the day. She gave input, ensuring everything we did made a pleasant experience for our guests, our ceremony timing, the overall asethetic, something as simple as making sure I (the bride) and my husband ate, our parents too. Her efforts did not go unnoticed by our guests either, and I happily sing her praises.

    The venue works with whatever you're going for. We went with an evening wedding, late night snack bar instead of a full sit-down dinner, and photos on the grounds at golden hour. Leslie made it so easy to find what worked for us, and made suggestions on how we could better our event without compromising anything we truly wanted. She put everything in perspective. I cannot thank her enough for all her hard work. Thank you so much for everything, you made our wedding a reality and for that, I am eternally grateful.

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Danni and Tyler,
    THANK YOU for your lovely words. I'm happy your day went exactly how you wanted it. I just tried to keep you in focus (haha). Your photos are lovely, and you will cherish those memories for a longtime. I hope there are many photos at the fireplace with your Dad's hat. That was a special spot where I seen a lot of people stop and had a drink with him.

    July 23rd - Matthews Wedding

    Leslie and the entire Rideau Acres staff were absolutely incredible. Our wedding day was a complete success and we owe a huge thank you to everyone involved. Leslie was extremely helpful during the set-up process the day before, the day of and the day after for clean up. The catering was above and beyond our expectations. A huge shoutout to L'Amour catering for the delicious meal. Everyone had an amazing time and we highly recommend choosing Rideau Acres as your wedding venue!

    Fantastic Venue

    Leslie and the Rideau Acres team were amazing to work with for our winter wedding reception in February 2022. Even with all the changing rules, Leslie worked with us to understand the COVID regulations and make our day as wonderful as possible. The venue is beautiful and spacious, a great value for the price! I would highly recommend Rideau Acres as a venue to couples planning their weddings.

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Thank you Nicole and Robin. You both were fantastic to deal with. The ever changing rules ended up being a good thing. Congratulations again on a wonderful winter wedding.

    Wedding Venue

    The staff was helpful once we could get ahold of them and sort everyone’s job out. The venue itself is very pretty and was exactly what I wanted for my wedding. The staff was very accommodating and was able to help create a wonderful atmosphere.

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Hello Brytanie,
    Thank you for you review. We are sorry for the lack of communication while we transitioned to a new event coordinator. We do appreciate the feedback and we are very glad you had a wonderful day. Congratulations again.

    Professional, accommodating, incredible to work with!

    Rideau Acres was the perfect place to have our wedding over the weekend (Feb 2022). Leslie and her team are incredibly responsive, professional, and very accommodating as we had many obstacles due to COVID. We can’t thank Rideau Acres enough for making this day so magical. We had our ceremony in front of their gorgeous stone fireplace, which was perfect for our winter wedding! The venue is catered by L’Amour catering, this food was amazing!! All of our guests made a point to come up to us at the end of the night and raved about the food. We can’t thank Rideau Acres enough for the incredible experience they provided to us for this special day. 100% recommend this venue. Trust me, Leslie is a dream to work with! She made the planning process so much easier, and kept the entire day running smoothly. Thank you Rideau Acres for everything!

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Thank you for your positive and wonderful comments. You and Jeremy were great to work with as well. Rolling with the punches as we navigated through COVID. Best Wishes to both of you!

    Absolutely Breathtaking!

    As someone who grew up camping at Rideau Acres, I have seen first hand the absolutely breathtaking landscape of this venue. I got into contact with Leslie regarding my interest in having my wedding ceremony here and she helped me through every step of it. While I originally planned for a beach wedding, it did rain. Leslie had already prepared for this and had set aside an equally beautiful space for us that sheltered us from the rain but still gave us the outside wedding we wanted. Leslie helped me every step of the way and kept me on track and made sure I had every thing I needed down to the last minute when I had an issue with my dress. She also recommended chair vendors, an officiant and everything else you could ever need for your special day. Rideau Acres is almost always open for viewings and Leslie replies fast and efficiently to emails.
    The Rideau Acres staff always go above and beyond and maintain their land meticulously. The pictures turned out gorgeous and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to say “I do”. 💕 thank you for everything Leslie and RAC staff

    Rideau Acres's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Sydney. Even the raindrops couldn't take away from your special day. Congratulations to you and Tyler on your beautiful wedding.
