Nestled alongside the Grand River, Conestoga Golf & Conference Centre features some of the most picturesque scenery in the area – from rolling fairways to beautifully manicured greens – you’ll be able to choose from a number of gorgeous photo opps and breathtaking wedding spaces.
Aside from the location, it’s the emphasis on attention to detail by the staff that will help ensure you enjoy yourself and focus on one of the most important days of your life. From engagement photography, indoor and outdoor services and your own customized menu created with Conestoga’s amazing Executive Chef, to an ultimately elegant wedding reception, you’ll be able to tailor your special day at Conestoga Golf & Conference Centre to ensure your wedding dreams come true.

The GolfNorth name is a familiar one in the Kitchener-Waterloo and Southwestern area, with highly rated golf courses, beautiful, picturesque grounds, and clubhouses worthy of elegant affairs – including weddings, which they've been creating for sixteen years.
Beaverdale Golf Club in Cambridge is no exception to living up to the superior GolfNorth reputation, which may have something to do with Barbara Warry and her team of event specialists at the club.

With a dedicated team of staff they provide a tastefully decorated hall and co-ordinators who are well versed in executing your special day. “In essence we ensure that everything goes off without a hitch,” – something she says is a joy for her and her team.
With a number of newly renovated event spaces that offer multiple themes and designs to suit many different decorating styles, and an all-inclusive package that includes everything from on-site ceremonies to photo locations, from open bar to cocktail or full meal receptions, we're not surprised that Beaverdale is attracting brides who are looking for that perfect, all-in-one location that's local and affordable.

Why The Ring?
The Ring is different from most wedding web sites and magazines because we go further than advertising for vendors or basic wedding tips for brides. Each advertiser Interviews & Reviewed in The Wedding Ring selects wedding professionals for their reputation, their cool-factor, and by the the fact that we've met them, like them, and want to tell you all about them. Many vendors have been recommended to us by other brides and wedding industry experts. The Ring's staff has done its homework, checked references, and asked around to find great services that can work with all different tastes, budgets and preferences. You'll have lots of options to plan the perfect wedding but not so many that you don't know where to start. The Wedding Ring is a community and a concept that's designed all around what real brides need and what professional wedding vendors have every right to expect.
Hiring: What's a bride to do?
When you're faced with hiring services for the most important day of your life, based solely on who's phone book ad is the biggest, who has the nicest logo, or who's 'blurb' in a web site ad sounds best... When there are 60 florists and 47 photographers... how do you choose? By getting free access to all of the details, prices, options and recommendations you'd normally spend months trying to find. The Ring changes the way K-W brides plan weddings.
