For over a decade I have been photographing love, and in doing so I have fallen in love with photographing PEI. But every once in a while, you come across locations that make your heart skip a beat and take your breath away. I want to share with you three of my favourite wedding venues in PEI, because to me these venues are love personified.
If you find yourself looking west of Charlottetown, look no further than Shipyards. And if you do look further… look out onto the ocean, because that’s the view you and your guests will have during the ceremony! Shipyards serves traditional and fresh seafood. Their staff is beyond accommodating, and are always happy to work with you to create the perfect menu for you and your guests. And as if their incredible food wasn’t enough, the venue itself boasts a space large enough for your guests to dance and celebrate comfortably, even after a couple of drinks! I’ve yet to meet a decor company that didn’t love designing this venue, especially Once Upon a Wedding in Summerside. Needless to say, the smell of the ocean as you say “I do” is the cherry on top to the perfect PEI wedding.
Now, in case you’re looking for a venue that offers the romantic and spiritual energy of a forest ceremony, yet also the warmth and liveliness of a barn reception… I’ve got the place for you. The Clinton Hills‘ barn has gorgeous textures and an elegant rustic feel. The staff are simply amazing. They really get to know each couple and create an extraordinary experience for their guests. I love how they even bring out unique snacks that reflect the couple and what they love. Above all else, it’s the feeling of acceptance and togetherness that makes this venue a favourite.
PEI Brewing Company
Lastly, the notorious PEI Brewing Company! The PEI Brewing Company is one of the most important and popular companies on the island. The beer and food are divine and their customer service blows you out of the water. From experience, I can say their customer service is second-to-none, and their kindness extends to all vendors working to create the perfect wedding day. The PEI Brewing Company constantly works to raise the bar, especially when it comes to their menu. I cannot bring myself to pick a favorite meal or beer! Whether you are hosting a small or large party, this venue’s menu and ambiance will be one of your wedding’s highlights.
Maybe after reading this you know exactly the venue you’re looking for, or maybe you’re still searching. Either way, there are some things the right venue will always have. Just like you did when you found your forever person, your venue will reflect the beautiful energy you will bring into your marriage.
Here is a collection of some of my favourite wedding moments from the Shipyards, Clinton Hills, and the PEI Brewing Company. Get the tissues ready! and if you’re having your wedding at one of these venues… you now know a photographer as passionate about these PEI wedding venues as she is about photographing weddings!
