I’ve noticed a large increase in the number of Montreal couples having their weddings in Rigaud over the past few years. Rigaud offers that country feeling, lots of green space, trees everywhere, lakes and fresh air. All this within a 60 minute drive from downtown Montreal! Here is a very short review of two great locations for your wedding in the Rigaud area.

Au Vieux Moulin

Au Vieux Moulin

Au Vieux Moulin was built around 1830 as a flour mill, saw mill and wool carding mill. In 1908 major modifications were made to its dam that still regulates the river flow today. Under new ownership in the 1980’s, it was restored and has been up kept since.The grounds surrounding the Vieux Moulin are perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony by the river under a huge gazebo. Once inside you will be amazed by the features of the mill that you can still see today.The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent. The Vieux Moulinis open for weddings and events from May 1st to Oct. 31st, but is open for visits year round.

Auberge Des Gallant

L’Auberge Des Gallant was built in 1972 on a wonderful 400 acres on Rigaud montain. It is more than just a venue for your wedding, they also have an Inn to spend the night for you and your guests, a spa, sugar shack during the winter months, and fine dining.

Outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktails

The Auberge offers a great location for those looking for a quite wedding ceremony outside by a nice small lake with lush gardens that are very well kept. For cocktails you can choose to have specialty beer served by the local brewery Schoune. The food is always excellent as they use fresh produce and ingredients from farms close by.

Rigaud Weddings

Both Au Vieux Moulin and L’Auberge Des Gallant offer that country side feeling you simply can not find in the middle of downtown Montreal. Wedding ceremonies outdoors under a gazebo on the lake, cocktails under the blue sky surrounded by gardens and flowers everywhere. Fresh air and open space is what you’ll find at these two great locations for your wedding!
