The Best Intimate Wedding Venues Near Montreal

May 4, 2022

With the trend of intimate weddings and elopements on the rise, many couples are on the hunt for rare gem locations to say their “I do’s”. You’re searching for intimate wedding venues that feels romantic, beautiful, and yet appropriate for a smaller guest list. I want to make that a little easier for you! Government guidelines are constantly changing, making the need for flexible celebration spaces more important than ever. To help make your search a little easier, I put together a list of some of my favorite intimate wedding venues in the Montreal area. 

Auberge Willow Inn (Hudson)

The Auberge Willow Inn is a long-standing fixture in the picturesque town of Hudson. What truly sets it apart from other similar venues is the stunning view of Lac Saint-Louis. With beautiful large windows on both sides of the reception room, you and your guests are guaranteed a gorgeous view. The indoor reception space is elegant yet relaxed, and decorated in a neutral palette – perfect for adding your own unique touches! 

The grounds offer a number of exceptionally gorgeous outdoor spaces, including a long wrap-around covered porch, a deck area, beautiful lawns, a boat launch, and a kitchen garden. 

They’re creating a safe – yet celebratory – environment even during the pandemic. Hand-washing stations are placed throughout the venue, and they’ve committed contact-tracing measures. Food service is plated and served by staff, limiting contact as much as possible.

Forest and Stream Club (Dorval)

If you are looking for old-world elegance on a more intimate scale, you will love the Forest and Stream Club! Elegant, historic and romantic, it has a definite Bridgerton-meets-Downton Abbey feel. Who doesn’t want to feel like elegant royalty on their wedding day? This ultra romantic intimate wedding venue will have Lady Whistledown writing about your flawless wedding day! With the option to have your wedding and reception outdoors, it is relatively easy to host your event while complying with Covid-19 regulations. And of course, the views of the St-Lawrence River can’t be beat!

Polo Parc Farms (Rigaud)

If you are a country couple at heart, this idyllic intimate wedding venue will speak to you. Polo Parc Farms, just outside of Rigaud, has a romantic, tented reception space in the forest. There are also pristine pastures and a beautiful outdoor ceremony space. Because of the many different spaces, each with their own feel, this venue offers a gorgeous variety of backdrops for photos. This also lends itself to being  able to make the space and day your own. Maybe you start at the outdoor ceremony space and then move to the romantic space in the forest for cocktails. This venue is perfect for a classic, elegant celebration, or a more relaxed, woodsy vibe.

Verger du Flanc Nord (Mont-Saint-Hilaire)

If you are willing to travel a little further, the Verger du Flanc Nord in Mont-Saint-Hilaire is perfect for a smaller guest count. This intimate wedding venue is cool, modern, and filled with beautiful natural light! The two venue spaces look out onto the orchards, and provide a blank canvas for you to inject your unique style into. Long rectangular tables are perfect for more intimate gatherings and give an elegant-yet-family-friendly feel. You could easily hold your ceremony outside – weather permitting! – and then move your celebration inside for cocktails and meal service. The Verger also has a wide range of ciders to sample – perhaps a tasting at the cocktail hour?
