Le Salon 1861
Located in the heart of of Little Burgundy, Le Salon is a historical gem with a distinct social mission. First created as the l’Eglise St-Joseph in 1861, it is reopening its doors to host a wide variety of community events meant to engage community members and bring them together. Grand arches, pillars and balconies make up the interior of the main event hall situated in the center of the former church. Modern day design intersects with the traditional, by features such as an outdoor urban garden, a restaurant sourcing local produce and an entrepreneurial co-working hub. The indoor lighting is also stunning and will undoubtedly create visually captivating photos of both the wedding ceremony and reception, particularly for nighttime events. Le Salon’s unique approach to event planning is sure to strike a chord with couples who value making a positive social impact and supporting the growth of their local community.
The Intercontinental takes the guesswork out of wedding planning with its price per person wedding package options. In addition to stunning interiors, the lucky couple has access to the Iconic Tourelle Suites for their wedding night. These high-end suites are tucked away in the towers of the hotel and feature a circular living room. A 180 degree view of the city on the night of your wedding creates a beautiful, romantic finishing touch. While this venue is full of lovely rooms, there are two standout features that we would be remiss in not mentioning. The Les Voutes are two magnificent stone vaults dating back to the 18th century. They can be used as grand reception halls. The Terrasse Nordheimer is a contemporary rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of the cityscape. Old world grandeur meets a fresh modern day twist at the Intercontinental.
Le Windsor offers three extraordinary reception halls. Each one is just as magnificent as the last. The Windsor ballrooms have a rich history, with their construction dating back to the late 1800s. The ballrooms were built in Victorian and French Renaissance styles, giving them a palatial feel. Peacock Alley is housed in this remarkable structure; It is a long, extravagant hallway, aptly named for the peacocks painted onto its stained glass windows. Le Windsor is 9 stories tall and made of stone and granite. It houses 6 restaurants, a gold-embossed lobby and a concert hall. In other words, this venue spares nothing.
W Montréal Hotel
The quintessential boutique wedding experience can be found at the W Montréal Hotel. One look at their rich and decadent living room area tells you that you are getting a venue like no other. The decor is well thought out and styled cohesively to create a particular mood and ambience that is both classy and contemporary. Customizable menu options and elegant personal touches are shaped by your personality. Though this is a smaller venue, quality definitely weighs more heavily than quantity. Boutique venues such as these are the sweet spot in which all of your desires for your wedding day are wrapped into one.
Large wedding parties will have no problem fitting into the Theatre Rialto. This venue can accommodate up to 300 guests for a seated dinner and over 600 guests for a cocktail reception. The Rialto Hall, while smaller, can still house 150 to 225 guests for a dinner or cocktail reception. Lovers of the arts may be particularly fond of this venue, as it was once an exquisite movie theater. Rich decor and baroque-style architecture make it one of Montréal ’s most iconic buildings. The wedding halls at the Rialto are large and spacious with high ceilings and stunning architectural features. They are truly exquisite and larger-than-life halls, fit to serve grand wedding parties with guests of up to 500 people. Any couple that weds here is sure to feel like royalty.
If you have your dream wedding venue booked but are still considering different banquet halls for your reception, this is a fantastic choice.
