I’ve seen weddings at Whonnock Lake (it’s technically in Maple Ridge).  Google it and you’ll find it.  They were really nice, the price is reasonable and it’s a super “natural” setting.  There are outdoor areas and also an indoor reception area.  There is a lake with a dock which makes for cool pics.  Check it out!  My bf likes it there…we will definitely look into it once we’re engaged.

Don’t think there’s a caterer on site though…

Just wanted to also add to that that the venue website itself looks a tad bit lame-o…so also click on some photographers pages that come up on the Google search πŸ™‚  Then you can see it all done up for real weddings!

I know it’s a little far, but The Falls Resort (Bridal Falls) is really nice. It’s just outside of Chilliwack along HWY 1. They also have these beautiful villas you can rent.

My friend got married there last September. She had an outside wedding and then there’s a huge tent for the reception. They drive you around on golf carts for pictures and everything is right there.

If you want to know anything else, let me know…I’m so tired right now that I can’t think of what else to say Wink

What about Newlands in Langley?  I’m obviously a sucker for a good conservatory style room. 

There’s also Hazelmere Golf course and Northview in Surrey that are super popular.  I’ve hosted work related events at both venues but their minimums are pretty high if you’re in the 100 person range…

Redwoods golf course in Langley also has a beautiful outdoor space.  It was actually one of our top contenders, but doesn’t have indoor reception space.

We also seriously considered the Teahouse at Stanley park (no dancing until after 10, and the potential bus load of tourists attacking our wedding for the obvious reason were the big turnoff there)

and SFU’s diamond university centre.

Oh, or a lot of people rave about Semiahmoo fish and game club.  We viewed it in the middle of winter in the half dark, so maybe something was lost on me, but thought I’d throw out that idea too.

@Silverblade: Yeah, Redwoods is out if you don’t want all inclusive.  Besides the fact that I don’t eat outside, the major detractor was that they just charge (in 2009) 92/person and it includes everything (DJ, centrepieces, etc.) so there wasn’t much room for creativity.

@Silverblade:  Wow I didn’t know they were that popular at Whonnock Lake!  I will probably be getting married in 2012…but we were thinking fall anyways so I guess I should get on top of that.  Would be nice to have the ring first though grrr…

I know you said Agassiz is a bit far but the Fraser River Lodge is super nice too.  They do their own catering.  Much more $$$ though!

My friend got married at the Diamond Alumni Centre at SFU in June and it was SO NICE.  The view is amazing!  Definitely check it out.  

I haven’t checked it out but my mom says the Old Mill Boathouse (not the Boathouse restaurant) in Port Moody is nice.  I think it might not hold a lot of people though but it’s right at Rocky Point so it has a nice ocean view I think.

We looked at a lot… Neither of us are from here, and we had family travelling in from anywhere so we had the same issue as you that the whole LMD was an option.  I have a massive table with information about 50 different LMD venues on it.

Hm… let’s see if I can attach it. 

Nope, it doesn’t attach as a table, so it’s really hard to read.

@Silverblade:  I think she had about 100-125 people up at SFU.  She just had her reception there, but there might be ceremony spots nearby too.

@Silverblade: Well thats why Im hoping to use the UBC botanical gardens- maybe you should check out UBC campus for some venues? I know Green College and the gardens are often used for weddings
