As soon as le boyfriend and I came to our senses after his lovely proposal, our venue search was on! I knew that I didn’t want to be engaged for years and years. Some do it, but it wasn’t for me. So the venue had to be booked ASAP. Unfortunately for me…that meant having to agree to a Sunday wedding, as most Toronto venues were booked solid for Saturdays (some, two years in advance!!!).
Adding to my woes was the fact that I did not…DID NOT…want to get married at a banquet hall. Nothing wrong with a banquet hall wedding…but in my mind, I had something different envisioned. Something more intimate, with flickering lights, and hopefully with some outdoor space too. I found all that and more at Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener!
After the lovely Nadine gave le bf and I a tour of the place – we were both smitten. Built in a style of a Spanish mansion, Hacienda was everything we wanted – from the gorgeous arches, to the Gaudi-esque artwork, to the private coffee roasting room, to the wonderfully landscaped grounds…it had it all!
And IF le bf and I had decided to get married in Canada…Hacienda is the only place that we would consider. And though at this point, I won’t be revealing our secret wedding location…to those brides, still searching for that perfectly special reception venue – make sure to check out Hacienda Sarria. It’s certainly worth a look!
