It’s never too early to start planning a dream wedding in Ontario’s Algonquin Highlands. Sandy Lane Resort has helped plan beautiful lakeside weddings during all four seasons, making us a premier Central Ontario wedding venue. We give you the flexibility to create a destination wedding that every friend and family member will cherish. Say “I do” on the serene shores of Halls Lake, pose for wedding photos on our rustic, lengthy boat dock, and celebrate with family and friends in our large Banquet Hall. You and your best friend will be able to save bundles by booking an all-in-one wedding package complete with rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and overnight accommodations. You’ll also be able to start your honeymoon by soaking, splashing, and paddling in beautiful Halls Lake. Here’s why Sandy Lane Resort is one of the best Ontario wedding venues, regardless of the season. We’ve held weddings in the spring, early summer, fall, and winter.

Halls Lake Ceremony

Picturesque Halls Lake is located in the Haliburton Highlands in Central Ontario. Halls Lake is a hidden gem to some and an annual family getaway destination to others, but it will always be the place where hundreds of couples exchanged heartfelt vows. Sandy Lane Resort rests on a private slice of Ontario heaven on the northwest corner of Halls Lake. There are several potential ceremony locations. You can say “I do” near the sandy beach with the still lake as a backdrop, under a fabulous marquee tent, or on the colorful forest’s edge. After you’ve officially been announced as a married couple, you and your wedding party can pose for everlasting photos on our lengthy dock, in a red canoe, on the sandy beach, or near the lush forest.

Banquet Hall Reception

Premier Ontario Wedding Venue

It takes a lot of work to become a premier Ontario wedding venue. The caring, experienced, and family-oriented staff at Sandy Lane Resort has been helping make dreams come true for years. Our team is very flexible, making every wedding a unique experience. We also love helping the wedding party unwind the night before their big day, which is why we always recommend using the central bonfire pit or fishing boats for a memorable Friday evening.
