Amazing venue and amazing owner
My fiancé and I found this venue about 3 weeks before our wedding date (we had to change venues due to pandemic, but wanted to do our best to keep our date) and Michelle was extremely supportive, positive, helpful, and professional. Michelle addressed all of our questions and concerns promptly, while emanating so much positivity that was much needed at that point of our wedding planning. The professionalism and organizational skills that Michelle has, made us feel so calm and well taken care of. She took our very small elopement seriously and gave us the support we needed to make the day happen.Sent on 19/02/2021
Then there's the venue: It is a beautiful old church that has the bones to make any wedding vibe come true. Michelle and her husband did an excellent job making the church a blank canvas that you can use as is, or decorate in the way that you needed for your event. The rentals she offered also saved us a lot of headache trying to find items that we couldn't get with lockdowns and shipping times.
Thank you, Michelle!

The Knox Saved our Wedding!
I cannot say enough good things about The Knox. Michelle (the owner) and her partner have created a magical place to get married. My husband and I had to move our wedding last minute to due a change in provincial regulations and LUCKILY the Knox saved the day! Its a beautiful venue set in the adorable village of Merrickville an easy drive from Ottawa or Kingston. Its a converted church with a dash of gothic romance and drama just waiting for a couple to put their spin on the space. Anyone looking an extra special venue for their wedding or event should contact Michelle. She went above and beyond to make our day extra special we couldn't be more thrilled with our wedding day.Sent on 13/11/2020
