Wedding Ceremony

Gordon Presbyterian Church

Gordon Presbyterian Church

County Road 20

St. Elmo (near Maxville), North Glengarry, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry United Counties, Ontario K0C 1W0

Church is visible on road but is outside of Maxville. The address is technically 1996 Highland Drive, but this defaults to Highland Road in Maxville when searched.

DIRECTIONS (from Ottawa)
Take the 417-E. Drive along that for approximately forty minutes then take exit 51 toward Chemin Highland Road/Saint. Isidore/Maxville. Turn right onto County Road 20 (signs for Chemin Highland Road S) The Tim Hortons which has the closest washroom to the church is along this road.The church is on the immediate right on the top of the hill.

Google Maps link to St Elmo (the church is the ONLY remaining feature in the former hamlet of St. Elmo) .

If that doesn't work, just type in "St. Elmo Ontario" in Google Maps. It is directly north of the village of Maxville, at most likely two or three miles.

Wedding Reception

Bate Hall, All Saints Anglican Church

Bate Hall, All Saints Anglican Church

317 Chapel St

Ottawa, Ontario K1N 7Z2

An evening reception with lots of music and merriment. We've hired a Celtic band so it should be a fun event. There will be lots of hors d'oeuvres (catered), a dessert table, and a bar but no formal sitdown dinner.
