Viamede Chapel; wedding venue Ontario

Congratulations on your engagement!

Choosing a wedding venue is a big decision. You have your very own unique vision for your wedding, and the venue plays an important role in your look, feel and theme.

Getting married at Viamede means gathering your friends and family for a full weekend of memories – start with a Friday dinner, carry on with volleyball for everyone on Saturday morning, and end Sunday with a brunch to say goodbye.

At Viamede Resort, we want your uniqueness to shine and we want to help make your wedding vision a reality. Whatever you’re dreaming of, Viamede is Your Personal Wedding Venue. Whether you want an outdoor wedding by the lake under a floral-lined gazebo or in our historic, rustic chapel, we will work with you to bring your dream to life.

Viamede specializes in the unique, the fun, and the personal. We have couples who let Chef dream up a surprise menu, and others who ask Chef to make their grandmother’s apple pie recipe for dessert. Some want cozy and intimate, and others want tequila served with dinner. Some want Viamede-raised whole hog, slow roasted over charcoal and maple chips, and others want a formal plated dinner. We’ve had live bands, Spotify playlists, and DJs, tuxedos with flip flops, Hawaiian themed weddings, and everything in between. And we loved them all.

Overview

The Basics

  • Nickels and dimes are included. Seriously. Our package includes… well, everything, pretty much.
  • It’s about you. How casual do you want this? We’ve seen everything from tuxedoes and swimwear, 5 course dinners and buffets, 100 person games of kickball and everything else. It’s your wedding, not ours.
  • Capacity: up to 80 comfortably, up to 100 with a cozy setup, any more gets a bit crowded.
  • Price: $250 per person for most everything, plus $5000 facility fee. Inclusions are below.
  • Accommodations: 12 rooms in the main building need to be booked by your guests, more are available. All rooms have a 2-night minimum. Or, book all accommodations for the weekend and really own the resort
  • It’s the full resort experience for your guests – all the activities, from the kayaks to Toby, the resort dog, are included.
  • Availability: We don’t book any weddings between Canada Day and Labour Day, nor on long weekends. Email us for available dates

What makes us different?

  • It’s soooooo simple. We include just about everything at the venue, and have pre-selected vendors and packages for you to choose from.

  • We can build your wedding menu from scratch to your tastes, or make some basic decisions for you.

What’s included?

  • Honestly, pretty much everything you need from the venue.
  • Your ceremony site on the day of the wedding
  • A 4-course dinner of your choice – send us your grandmother’s tomato soup recipe, or talk to our team to get inspired

  • A Rehearsal BBQ (or similar) for all your guests on Friday night
  • Basic room setup, including white table linens, chairs, tables, tea lights, and everything else you need.

Exclusive use

This is a great option to allow you to really make the wedding your own.

  • Start decorating on Friday, and don’t worry about cleaning up until Sunday.
  • Assign rooms and prices however, and whenever, you want – you know you have all the rooms anyway.
  • It’s about a 20% discount, which you can pass along to your guests or offset wedding costs.

VendorsBetween the DJ, band, photographer and flowers, there are a lot of moving parts. We’ve tried to simplify this by partnering with people we like to work with, and setting up simple prices with each of them. This means that you can easily understand what’s included and rest easy knowing everyone on your team has worked together before.ContactWant to chat? Shoot us an email at events@viamede.com and we’ll talk about your dreams, ideas, and dates, of course.

Effective December 4, 2015

We at Viamede Resort value the privacy of all our guests and friends. That’s why in addition to a lock on the door of each guestroom, we have detailed how we use any information we receive.

Oh—and before we go any further—we’ll just let everyone know right off the bat that we comply with current Canadian privacy legislation.

1) What kind of information do we collect?

There are two different types of information that we collect: personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”).

This might sounds complicated but it’s fairly straightforward.

Personal Information

We are a resort and people come visit, book rooms, and enjoy gourmet local food all of the time. As a result of these exchanges, we end up collecting some personal information—which is usually voluntarily given—that includes things like:

We take this information very seriously and only use it to facilitate your stay with us and to keep you in the loop should you wish.

Non-Personal Information

Through your interactions with us, our website and analytics platforms, and through our advertising partners, we may collect information that cannot be used to identify who you are. This type of information that may be collected are things like:

2) How do we collect information?

We collect this information in a few different ways.

When you provide us with information in making a purchase.
Fairly straightforward. You book a room, we receive personal information.

When you sign up to our e-mail list.
If you sign up to receive updates, we end up with a bit of your personal information. With your permission, we send you special information and you can decide to opt out at any point.

When you communicate with us.
When you reach out by e-mail, social media or by hand delivered letter, we may keep those for our records.

Information we automatically collect.
Like most websites, our services may incorporate fancy things like “pixel tags” and “cookies” which allow us to track actions and serve you information about our products and services. All of these collect Non-Personal Information.

3) How is the information used?

Personal Information could be used to:

4) What about Non-Personal Information?

From time to time, we use third-party advertising companies to serve you ads when you visit our website. They may use Non-Personal Information about your visits to this and other websites to provide ads about goods and services that are of interest to you. If you would like more information about this wizardry or to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies you can look here.

5) What else?

We want to make sure you enjoy your time with us and that your information is protected. Personal Information will only be used or shared when necessary and we would never sell you out by giving your information to third parties without good reason.

Unsurprisingly, we reserve the right to update our privacy policy at any time. When that happens, we will update the effective date at the top of this page so that you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. We hope to see you around soon.
