Kristyn & Richard’s wedding theme was a laid back summer’s night. Their wedding day had beautiful weather and was just stunning! They chose the UBC Boathouse for it’s simplicity and beautiful views. They have both attended a wedding here in the past and when they began their search for a venue, it was the one.
“We didn’t even need to view any other venues, our minds were already made up within two and a half weeks of being engaged, we booked our spot. We loved the floor to ceiling windows inside the venue with the gorgeous wood floors and exposed wood beam ceiling – which right away I could envision the are bulb strong lights hanging which would pull together that outdoor summer wedding feel.
Another feature we absolutely loved was being able to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors on the dock giving our wedding that outdoor wedding feel. Having our Ceremony and Cocktail hour out on the docks was something that was so unique to any other wedding venue we researched. The guests loved to enjoy one of the first warm summer days out on the water with a special Bar set up right on the docks. The hall upstairs was the perfect and easiest transition to the Reception, and watching the sunset through those floor to ceiling windows made the summer night feel like it was never going to end. The sun set right as it was time to get on the dance floor and dancing our way late into the night was the perfect way to end our Wedding. It was a day we will never forget!” – Kristyn & Richard.

“We selected our vendors by the UBC Boathouse’s preferred vendors list and by referrals from friends and family. Our vendors on site were Ritz Catering, Straight Up Bar Services, Imagine that Events and DJ Hot Wax – which we chose all from the preferred list and I am so happy that we did! Not only were they all super familiar with the logistics of the venue but they had all worked with each other several times in the past and coordinated with each other so perfectly and without my direction. All the vendors were great with all my little requests, personal touches and last minute emails and phone calls. All our guests had nothing but good things to say about the venue, food, bar and music, and we were so happy with how the whole night turned out.
Our photographer, Taya Photography, was excited to shoot our wedding at the UBC Boathouse as she see’s it as one of the best indoor venue’s for natural light” – Kristyn & Richard.
