On one of our previous blogs,we featured some of our favorite outdoor wedding venues in Vancouver. In this one, we are venturing into the next natural topic…our top five indoor venues!
These Vancouver wedding venues listed below only scratch the surface of the ones we love. We have worked with so many over the last few years and it was hard to list just five or this post would have been a mile long.
Each venue has their own set of unique qualities, setting them apart from the next and also showcases how flexible we are as planners and designers to work with so many different styles of venues.
Anyway, the moment you have all been waiting for…
Ah yes, the Vancouver Convention Centre…we are here usually a couple times per year between wedding planning and providing our floral and design services. For anyone who has visited this place before, it is a fresh and contemporary building offering amazing options for weddings of different shapes, sizes, and needs – flexibility at its finest!
The 2ndlevel is definitely our bread and butter. The reception area is a long, floor to ceiling window lined grand showstopper of a space, overlooking the north shore and the harbour through the windows. The epitome of a PNW experience with authentic Vancouver vibes! The space is airy, inviting, yet intimate all at the same time. The bonus? The outdoor terrace that overlooks the north shore is the prime location for an outdoor ceremony with a backdrop unlike any other in Vancouver.
From a vendor point of view, it is one of the most effortless venues to work with, which just adds brownie points to the reasons we can’t wait to come back each and every time! Plus, the food is to die for.
What’s not to love about this traditional and timeless venue? It is one of the most iconic locations for a classic ballroom style wedding reception, featuring gigantic chandeliers, big windows, and polished silverware. Their ballroom also boasts a swoon-worthy bay window space for your head table or king table. Make a bigger statement with a sweetheart table decked out to the nines as your masterpiece for the room!
Host your ceremony in the stunning Georgia Room, in front of the white fireplace, beautifully decorated in fresh florals and tons of candles. This room can also be transformed into a stunning reception space for small numbers, with family style tables or a casual yet elegant lounge space.
Speaks to your heart too, doesn’t it?
Looking for the perfect blank canvas space? This is it. Located just outside of the downtown core in North Vancouver, the Pipe Shop is a one of a kind space in both looks and usage – meaning you can bring in all your own vendors, design the event exactly how you want it, without restrictions on your suppliers.
Its newest renovations and updates from early last year made it even more of a prime location with added features essential to hosting weddings and private events. Their location on the waterfront gives you direct access to piers and a view of the downtown Vancouver cityline. You can easily pop over to greener areas for a little more ‘nature’ as it is close to plenty of waterfront parks, as well as areas like Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, Cleveland Dam, and Grouse Mountain.
We had the honor and pleasure of being one of the first few weddings to be hosted at the new Parq Vancouver – and wow! Did it quickly become one of our favorites right out of the gate! The new resort, located in downtown Vancouver, is the definition of glamour. From the first impression before they even walk through the main doors, the incredible staff and their detail-oriented concierge style service is second to none. Essential for a venue this large, in our opinion.
On the fourth floor, the ballrooms boast contemporary and neutral color palettes, perfect for transformations yet stunning on their own. The Fairview room stole our hearts, with its massive floor to ceiling windows, rich wood accents, and unique layout. It is the only ballroom with direct access to a beautiful outdoor terrace, overlooking both the cityline and harbour. A perfect sunny spot for cocktails and lounging!
For incredible photos, adventure around the resort for awesome urban shots, visit David Lam Park for a touch of green, or head to Yaletown for a dose of exposed brick magic.
A true urban treasure, highlighting the love for exposed brick, wooden beams, and hip deco. Located in bustling Yaletown in downtown Vancouver, this unique space has aced what it means to be one of a kind. Perfect for smaller groups under 100, The Loft offers a low maintenance approach to a fabulous affair – just add some fresh blooms, a great DJ (they have a killer dance area!), and a sweet station to top it all off!
After having your ceremony against their white brick wall, guests will transition to the cocktail area while the room is being transformed into the dinner setup. Take a walk around Yaletown for amazing urban photos or take advantage of all the different lounge areas that The Loft offers for more portrait style shots.
Once the cocktail hour is complete, guests are welcomed back into the reception room where it has been transformed into a family style dining experience, with all catering coming from the Earls kitchen. Long tables allow guests to get cozy under the wooden beam ceiling and sparkling chandeliers. We simply love this space!
