Also - something to think about, what is the rain back up plan? A lot of venues do not have a rain back up plan...
It would be nice to have an Outdoor Ceremony and Indoor Reception all in one venue
too much to ask for?
Just did some web searching and phoning around.
I searched and found lots of into about the brock house, tea house, fish house, stanley park pavillion, and more. Most are on grass and no rain back up plan - except expensive tenting ourdoors.
Apparently the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle has a rooftop Patio with an awesome city view - and it can seat my 200 guests easily!!
I am going to see the venue this week, how nice if my guests could attend my ceremony outside on the rooftop, and then just come straight to the ballroom.
Also my out of town guests can stay right in the hotel at a reduced rate? I am going to call and get more information tomorrow!
I hope they have my available dates! Has anyone ever heard of this patio space? Sounds awesome!
Anyone who is currently looking for a fabulous outdoor venue should look into The Wedding Yacht in coal harbour, Vancouver BC. I got married there in 2010 and they are just starting to become recognized for how gorgeous the venue is. They won a BC Wedding Award for Best Wedding Reception Venue in 2011. We had our ceremony AND reception on board and we had 140 guests. They can hold up to 275. Good Luck!
Hi ALarson, I have been looking at this yacht for my wedding. Did you find it was cramped/tight fit with 140 ppl? also where is the dance floor?
No it was great :)
Theres 3 floors but we all ate on the one floor (the second floor) and wandered around/danced for the rest of the event.
Hope this helps
Hello everyone, we are planning our wedding to be outdoors, close to the beach or even better on the beach, like Centennial beach, or Kids beach , Spanish beach, or any other beach in the areas of Vancouver, North Vancouver, Surrey and Delta. We don’t know where to go to ask for information about. Any information will be helpful for us, so, does anyone have any suggestion for outdoor ceremony Venues?
It will host about 100 people --- AND only book for a 1-2 hour time frame!
, thanks for your information.
