The UBC Boathouse is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue. The light-filled Main Hall with floor to ceiling windows, offers amazing views of the Fraser River and North Shore Mountains. Even with the close proximity to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), The UBC Boathousefeels tranquil, and the sunsets are too die for!
Indoor to outdoor access is seamless – a ceremony on the dock with reception upstairs makes the most sense because you don’t have to “flip” the room. Working out of the galley kitchen is fine for smaller weddings. For large wedding parties, a temporary kitchen set-up in the hallway by the offices works best.
As a preferred wedding caterer to The UBC Boathouse we’ve enjoyed a close working relationship with Sharon and her team and have a huge admiration for their professionalism and organization.
