The Buzz on the Brew House

June 29, 2015 / no comments

With today’s generation full of “foodies,” there appears to be a rise of new hip burger joints, fish tacos and craft beers, therefore putting The Mill St. Brew House in its prime. For this reason, it is no secret many people are buzzing about The Mill St. Pub being one of the “in-style” venues to have a wedding this year. If you are looking to achieve a shabby-chic or rustic atmosphere, RSVP would be thrilled to plan your wedding in this ideal space!


The Mill St. Brew Pub opened in January 2012 within one of Ottawa’s oldest surviving mills from 1842. The historic limestone building was once an integral part of the world’s largest lumbering operations; known as the Thompson-Perkins & Bronson Pulp Mill.
Today, the Mill thrives on brewing their own innovative craft beers while still maintaining Canada’s brewing heritage. Yet, that is not all they are known for, it seems the historic brew house has built quite the reputation for hosting many memorable events with a unique view.
The beautifully restored site overlooks the Capital, and offers an attractive access to the Ottawa River. While hosting an event, you can enjoy the stunning view of the mill’s “ruins”, or dine overlooking the river from their glass enclosed Logger’s Chute Atrium. However, it does not end there; located upstairs is the Brewmaster’s Room, which makes the perfect venue to complete your wedding or large event. When reserving with the Mill St. Brew Pub, they also include a tour conducted by one-on-one staff brewers to complete the historic experience!

The Best Ever Bridal Shower

June 10, 2015 / no comments

What is a bridal shower without the perfect theme to begin the fun!? Not only does it look great, but it sparks a creative inspiration for whatever activities you are looking to have. For instance, having a theme, gives guidance towards which games to play, where it should be held, what food should be served and how you and your guests should dress! In addition, having a theme will allow you to design your invitations accordingly; sending your guests their first hint as to what kind of day they can expect to have. Not only does holding a themed bridal shower help guide your itinerary for the day, it also makes planning a lot more fun!

Below is a list of equally charming bridal shower themes you could imitate when it comes time to hosting yours.

Monday Morning Spotlight: Taylor Roades Photography

June 8, 2015 / no comments

Today’s spotlight shines on a young photographer from Victoria, BC, Taylor Roades. Although, she is fairly new to the business, her photos show nothing but pure talent. Taylor has a unique style and an eye to capture a moment that is so pure; she sees what most of us simply miss.

Over the past four years, photography has taken Taylor across the world.  Her adventures entail traveling through the Canadian Rockie Mountains all the way to the Scottish Highlands- shutter clicking every step of the way. Aside from Taylor’s very well documented life, she has also photographed weddings across Canada, England and the Bahamas!

There is no doubt, Taylor has busy summer ahead full with weddings, which is why RSVP Events was thrilled to have come across such an amazing young artist!  Keep your eyes open this 2015; I am sure we will be seeing Taylor Roades capture many important occasions this year.

Although, we are in love with all Taylor Roades’ photos, below are some of our favourites.
