2. Brix Restaurant:

I cannot say it any better… this is from their website: “Brix Restaurant & Wine Bar, set in a 1912 Yaletown heritage building, is known for its modern Canadian cuisine that uses local ingredients in a comfortable, yet innovative way, a strong commitment to wine and an excellent wine by the glass selection offering over 60 wines by the glass. The room is warm, inviting & artistic; the unique glass covered courtyard patio is one of the jewels of the city, heated and open year round.”

— definitely a lovely Vancouver wedding venue. It can hold just over 100 guests which will keep your wedding intimate & fun! Let me know what you think!


3. Celebration Pavilion:

The Celebration Pavilion in Queen Elizabeth Park is a modern, architectural dream amidst the gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park. Check them out if you are looking for a charming ceremony venue in Vancouver that fits around 100 guests.


4. Hycroft Manor:

This gracious heritage venue was built in the early 1900’s. It’s upkeep is miraculous & it’s elegance shines through in all of the details that surround this lovely venue. Renting the whole estate, includes the ballroom. This allows you to have both your ceremony & reception at this delightful location! The property also features a view terrace, a heritage garden, & a Juliet balcony. Just keep in mind that this venue lies within a residential area, so your event will be restricted until 11pm. Definitely one of the most elegant wedding venues in Vancouver!


5. Whonnock Lake:

11. John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse:

The UBC Boathouse is a floating venue located on the Fraser River, in Richmond BC. Not to worry, this is not a boat ride. It is docked on the riverside, and since it is so large it does not sway & rock. It is an elegant piece of architecture alone on the river. There is a deck out back just above the water’s edge where you can have your ceremony (or you can have it indoors as well). Pros: private, elegant, full-service, sunsets. Truly a unique wedding venue in Vancouver!

A spectacular wedding venue situated on the tip of UBC.
