Here are four of my favourite non-hotel venues in the city:

  1. LB Distillers. Located in Saskatoon’s north industrial area, LB Distillers is a distillery whose event space gives off a very intimate, romantic vibe. This venue is perfect for couples with a smaller guest list.
  2. Champetre County. This rustic venue with an old country vibe is a short drive from Saskatoon. On offer are two indoor venues (the Howling Coyote Saloon, and the Town Hall) and a lovely, serene outdoor garden. What I love most about Champetre County is all the open space; your guests can roam, mingle, and even play a few lawn games as you and your wedding party sneak away for photos. For the full rustic experience, couples can also hire a Clydesdale-pulled carriage ride and, quite literally, ride off into the sunset.
  3. The Glen at Crossmount. This stunning event space is just outside Saskatoon city limits. The venue comes complete with its own cidery and equally beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces for both ceremony and reception. Without fail, every ceremony I’ve photographed at Crossmount has been undeniably beautiful. It’s also a great place for a party, with an outdoor patio and fire bowls so your guests can enjoy a nice Saskatchewan evening.
  4. Private venues. Do you live on an acreage or estate, or know someone who does? If so, consider calling in a favour to use the property as your wedding venue for a day. It’s amazing what a tent and some elegant decor can do. Having your wedding on a private property offers a lot of flexibility, since you’re not bound by time restraints. If you’re someone who has always dreamt of an evening ceremony, for example, it’s easy to arrange to exchange vows as the sun dips below the horizon.

If you’re debating between venues or trying to find the perfect spot to say ‘I Do’, drop me line. I’d love to chat with you and offer suggestions!
