Cecily & Ryan were married on one of the most gorgeous days of September. The sun came out just for their wedding day and they had a dream team of vendors to make their day everything they both had envisioned…
“One of the reasons we chose the UBC Boathouse was the fact that we would be able to have our ceremony right on the water. That was definitely #1 for us. We were looking at several other outdoor venues, but we both really liked the inside layout and also having the bar outdoor on the upstairs patio was a plus. Also, the venue was the perfect space for the amount of guests we had. UBC Boathouse was the first venue we looked at and we pretty much knew that first day, it would be the place for us.
For look and feel of our wedding, we really wanted to highlight the outdoor views around us. We tried to keep everything clean, simple and minimal and it turned out great. With the water and mountain views it provided great backdrops for some awesome photos.
The whole night was memorable. The outdoor bar and dancing throughout the night was definitely a hit. We were worried that it might’ve rained since it was wet then entire week leading up to our wedding day, but it turned out to be perfect that day. Also, the fact that UBC Boathouse was able to accommodate an indoor ceremony in case for rain was also a factor in choosing this venue….being able to make the decision up until a few hours before the ceremony gave us that peace of mind.” – Cecily & Ryan

“As far as vendors went, we looked at the Preferred Vendor List provided by the UBC Boathouse and after a few tastings, we chose Savoury City Catering. Not only was the food was really good, Joey, our coordinator, was also very awesome to deal with. He was able to provide a custom menu based on our preferences but also work within our budget as well. His service throughout the entire process was above our expectations. From our first meeting until the end of the night, his service was top notch and he definitely made the entire process very easy for us.
Cakewalk Media Inc., was recommended by a few friends and the we loved their vision and creativity. They were very fun to deal with. Young, Hip and Married, was recommended by our sister-in-law who used them for her wedding. They personalized the ceremony based on our preferences and they were very open to all our ideas. Lonsdale Event Rentals, our coordinator was very professional and was able to provide.
The entire UBC Boathouse Day-of Venue Coordinator was also very helpful throughout the entire night. We were both very happy with the courtesy and professionalism they showed that night. Their team was extremely helpful towards the end of the night as well. We will definitely be recommending this venue to all our friends for their weddings as well. It was overall a great and memorable experience. Thank you UBC Boathouse Team!” – Cecily & Ryan.
