As our snow covered gazebo and courtyard area begins to melt, we could not be more excited about the upcoming Spring wedding season here at the Canoe Club Ballroom! We are even MORE excited to announce that for the past three weeks, we have undergone a full exterior renovation to the front of our venue! It seemed the outside of the Canoe Club Ballroom just didn't match the newly renovated interior and courtyard. Beautiful new windows, siding, trim, columns, and dynamic lighting have brought the new facade to life!

Here is a look at the last few weeks’ process here at the CCB!


Here is one of our favorite pictures of the new look: Before and After!! 



One of our recently married couples, Angela & Jason were one of the first to experience our complete new exterior look for their special day! We were able to capture this special moment as their photographer posed them for the perfect shot after they exchanged their vows among their family and friends!

Possibly the most nerve-racking and exciting moment in any relationship is the “proposal”. It's the moment every one dreams of. That special moment when one puts everything on the line and asks their true love to spend the rest of their lives together. A single moment sparking a chain of events that leads to a beautiful wedding and life filled with love and happiness. The single way that one chooses to “pop the question” is up to them. We have seen creative proposals on TV, in the news and in movies but here's a few tips to sweep your spouse to be off their feet.

  1. The Classic Romantic. Get down on one knee with a ring in your hand just after you have finished your favorite entree at your favorite restaurant. A sunset walk on the beach is always a beautiful idea! 
  2. The Sports Lover. Are you and your special someone big sports fans? There may be nothing bigger than proposing at a professional baseball or basketball game. We promise it will be something you will never forget.
  3. The Artist. Write in chalk, “will you marry me” right outside your house or apartment in big enough letters that they will notice. Then just sit and wait inside to complete the proposal. Create a message they will never forget out of scrabble letters! 
  4. The Music Lover. Call up the local radio station and get them to pop the question for you over the air. Make sure there is a time you know they will be listening and then have them dedicate a song to them after.
  5. The Adventurer. Scavenger hunts are also fun and entertaining. Create a set of clues throughout the house that leads your spouse to a final location where you can be hiding. Cute, loving notes will surely get your loved one curious and intrigued.

When it comes to your proposal, do something that is “You”. Pop the question in a way that expresses the true essence of your relationship. Whether you have already popped that special question, or are thinking about how you want to do it, its always exciting to think of all the fun ways to express your love.


The Canoe Club Ballroom has been hosting weddings for years upon years. We have heard all the stories, but no matter what you do, your spouse will certainly remember it forever!
