The Old Orchard Inn, or, the 'Old O' as it's know by locals, has been offering a beautiful place to get married for decades. If you are looking for a venue where you have absolutely everything you need taken care of, this is the place for you.
So here you are, a year, maybe 18 months away from your wedding date. It's time to make some decisions. Some tough decisions. Flowers, catering, rentals, dresses, guest list, themes, etc etc and the list goes on and on. The wedding venue is typically the very first thing a bride and groom will book when planning their wedding. It makes sense; the venue really determines what kind of wedding you are going to have.
Part of the reason the Old Orchard is so great, is that it allows you to fill so many different needs in one shot. You can have virtually any theme of wedding here, and it will work (oh yes, it will work.)
Having the opportunity to have your wedding at a resort offers the choice to your guests, many of whom will be travelling from afar, the opportunity to stay where the wedding is. This is one of the most decisive factors when booking a wedding, and the Old Orchard has beautiful rooms with exceptional views of the Minas Basin and Cape Blomidon. Being right on the Bay of Fundy, with the highest tides in the world, of course lead to some amazing touristy activities, which is also another consideration when you are inviting guests from all over the world.
The Old Orchard has an absolutely amazing kitchen and restaurant. The provide catering for your guests (another stress relief, check that one off your list!) and the food is the best around. So when you make your inquiry to the Old Orchard Inn, you're going to be dealing with Heather. She is an absolute sweet heart and is going to take you through every step of the process and make it feel like you were organizing a picnic, not a wedding!
The rooms are all beautiful, with many of them looking over the beautiful views of the Annapolis Valley. They have a bridal suite which has the best views, as well as a jacuzzi for those after-the-wedding-wow-my-feet-are-sore.
Just like Heather, the customer service is amazing. All staff were friendly and polite during our stay (and they didn't know we were there to write an article about the venue, either!) They were more than happy to help with anything we asked for!
The Old Orchard Inn also has a pool and a hot tub. We loved using this and any of your guests will too.
Consider the Old Orchard when you are booking your venue. It's fantastic in every way and it really takes a lot of the stress out of the wedding planning. You will be able to focus your energy on the things that are going to make your wedding really stand out, the things that often get overlooked or put on the back burner because of all the other planning that is going on.
