An ideal backdrop for your wedding or events

Empey Estates Wedding & Event Venue

Let Us Help Make Your Love Story Perfect

Empey Estates Wedding & Event Venue is nestled in the quiet community of Empey Hill, in the town of Napanee, Ontario.  Our venue is located just off the 401, and only 3 hours from Toronto and 2.5 hours from Ottawa.  Once upon a time, it was a United Church built in 1912, but it has been beautifully repurposed to become and ideal place to host wedding ceremonies & receptions, bridal showers, birthday parties and corporate events.

We value exceptional service, elegance, innovation and genuine connections.

Where History Meets Modern Beauty

We offer three 3 unique spaces to choose from for your wedding or event. Our Grand Hall, which used to be the Sanctuary when Empey Estates was still an active Church. The Empey Estates Luxe Lounge, which is found on the main floor and provides a smaller more intimate space for your event. The third area is the Garden Terrace, which sits on an acre of beautiful land, completely isolated and surrounded by nothing but trees, nature and beautiful fields.


Our mission is to provide a unique and luxurious event space for any occasion, while using our expertise in event planning to bring every last detail of our clients’ visions to life.


Our vision is to be the go-to event space in Napanee and its surrounding areas, where luxury and affordability meet and cherished memories are made.

The Grand Hall

  • Our grand hall is what used to be the Sanctuary when Empey Estates was still an active church
  • This 2300 square foot open hall is lined with beautiful stained glass windows that are original from 1912
  • The indoor event space features white walls with 20 foot high ceilings, and light wood flooring

Empey Estates Luxe Lounge

  • The lounge is found on the main floor and provides a smaller, more intimate space to host your event.
  • This warm and inviting space doubles as our Bridal Suite for weddings, where brides and their closest friends can get ready and be pampered before the couple says “I do”.
  • With around 1000 square feet, this beautiful and elegant lounge is perfect to host a micro wedding reception, private dinner or your next corporate meeting.

Garden Terrace

  • With just under 1 acre of land, our venue is completely isolated, surrounded by nothing but trees, nature and farmers fields

What can we say about Katie and her support staff… Katie was there when we we had to change our venue 3 months out. Katie and her staff exceeded our expectations with her venue and services. Katie is organized and attentive. She helped us through the whole 3 months of planning and was able to answer any questions we had. This venue is absolutely beautiful! She made our vision stress free and come true. During our wedding day, she made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. We would recommended Katie and Empey Estates Wedding & Events Venue to anyone planning a wedding or looking for other venue services.

Reached out to Katie with a short-notice booking request for a wedding reception, not expecting she would be able to schedule us in. We were lucky she had availability; she accomodated all of our requests with exceptional service and attention to detail. If you're shopping for a wedding venue, I would highly recommend Empey Estates. Thanks Katie for the awesome day!
