• About US •


When a historic 1940’s era barn was slated for demolition on a neighbouring property we decided to save it and convert it into space of gathering and love. The original Hawthorn barn was relocated to our site in the winter of 2006. The ditches were packed full of snow, and the barn was skidded over them. Through endless days and nights of hard work and perseverance, the old barn was carefully restored. Once renovations were complete, we founded Hawthorn Estates and helped hundreds of couples celebrate their love.

Tragically in December of 2016, our beloved barn caught fire and was completely lost. We are devastated by such an enormous loss. But eventually we were inspired to carry on after witnessing the incredible support and encouragement in our community and the local wedding industry. The dream to rebuild is alive and well. The new Hawthorn Estates is poised to host those same gatherings of love and celebration by Spring 2018.

• The Owners •


The authentic nature of owners Robert and Tammy Belanger creates an unrivaled experience thanks in part to their warm, gracious manner and their personalized service. They’ve set the standard for going above and beyond expectations to ensure you and your guests escape from the ordinary. Tammy, an interior designer, and Robert have spearheaded the design of the new barn venue and dedicated themselves to carefully landscaping the entire acreage.

• Our Values •


At Hawthorn Estates we believe in the inclusion of all people regardless of gender, race, sexuality, religion, or politics. We celebrate all love. 

We also believe in loving mother nature and we aim to reduce our carbon footprint whenever possible. Our new barn utilizes repurposed beams from the logging industry and other recycled materials. We work tirelessly to recycle and reuse items, like using washable glasses instead of disposable cups. Future green initiatives include composting food waste from events.
