Information about Fraser River Lodge

Time goes by slowly in Fraser River Lodge. This pristine venue is located near Agassiz, British Columbia and at the foothills of the spectacular Cascade Mountains. The lodge is an idyllic venue for weddings of all sizes, both indoor and outdoor. A more private venue is hard to find as you will have the 18 lush acres to take full advantage of. This exclusive venue can be yours on the big day!

Facilities and capacity

The indoor Hall can accommodate up to 200 wedding guests, while the Lounge seats 35 people for dinner. For ceremonies, the Deck can accommodate 100 guests, the Field allows for 200 guests, and their outdoor Marquee Tent is also offered for a rainy day option with a capacity of up to 200 people. The Lodge also offers two onsite dressing rooms for the couple to prepare in privately, and their Honeymoon Suite is included in all their standard Wedding Packages.

Services offered

Their Wedding Coordinators are onsite for nearly the entire day of the wedding, functioning as a liaison between you, your vendors, your family, and the staff. They ensure your guests know where to go upon arrival, coordinate about 95% of your setup (excluding things like string lights or arbours), brief your commissioner on timeline changes, cue the wedding party down the aisle, educate your MC on the timeline and house policies, communicate with your photographers about timeline, lighting, and room setup, technology problem solving (slideshows, sound system, ceremony music), quality checking meals, serving the Bride at the buffet, providing customer service to the guests (highchairs, allergies, directions), etc. Prior to the Big Day they work to communicate and meet with you to sort out all the details, timeline of the day etc. and attend all on-site rehearsals. Two fully licensed bars are available with no additional bartending fees. On-site hair and make-up is available for additonal cost.

Cuisine

Their Red Seal Executive Chef Bill Schildpatt offers two seasonal buffet menus and one year-round buffet menu to choose between and has been known to be very accommodating regarding dietary restrictions, and menu alterations. Additional platters, appetizers and late night snacks are optional add-ons.

    Dream wedding venue

    The Fraser river lodge was amazing, accommodating and absolutely stunning. We debating going for a full service venue or for a more DIY venue. We’re so pleased that we went through with this gorgeous venue with an amazing staff that took over everything and made all our dreams come true. Also, having our closest friends and family spend the night at the lodge made the evening unforgettable. If you want zero stress, great communication from staff and a beautiful backdrop of mount cheam book this venue!

    Excellent value for elopement package!

    Me and my husband got married here using their elopement package, adding a few guests for dinner. The value we got for the price we paid was outstanding. The location is beautiful and the service is great, and the coordinators are awesome too, and kept in contact with me the whole year leading up to the wedding itself. I booked the venue before even seeing it in person and if you are considering the same, don't worry, it's even more beautiful in person than the pictures show!!!!

    Extremely Scenic

    I am so glad we chose this location to have our wedding. All of our guests said it was the best wedding ever. The scenery is amazing, and we had great weather for our wedding. The staff at the lodge are professional and extremely experienced. We found we didn't have to manage them at all and everything worked out perfectly. Our wedding couldn't have turned out any better. We are extremely grateful for their services. Would definitely recommend the Fraser River Fishing lodge to anyone considering a location for a wedding. The mountain view is excellent, the bison in the field always draw some attention, and the rustic feel and simple decor of the lodge is perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors and desire an outdoors theme.

    Perfection

    The Fraser River Lodge was my first and only choice when picking a venue for our wedding. We wanted an outdoor, rustic setting and the Lodge fit the bill to a T. Because we live in Vancouver, it was not always convenient for us to drive out to Agassiz to visit the venue. But Wendy and Jodie made it so seamless and easy to communicate that I felt so secure in our decision to have it out of town. The food, the setting, the accommodations, the price, the jaw-dropping backdrop, even the bison - they were all perfect. I couldn't have wished for a better venue for our special day.

    Fraser River Lodge's reply:

    Samantha thank you so much for your fantastic review! We had so much fun getting to know you and your new husband. What a beautiful day you had! Hoping your first year of marriage is just as special as your wedding day and looking forward to a future visit ;)

    Absolutely wonderful!

    I have nothing but positive things to say about the Fraser River Lodge!!!!

    -WEDDING COORDINATORS-
    Wendy and Jodie take care of you from the beginning. Their professionalism, communication and prompt responses via e-mail and phone went above and beyond. They are good at their job and you can obviously tell that they enjoy doing it. We trusted them and they excelled in our expectations. Thank you!

    -FOOD/BAR/STAFF-
    Excellent service and excellent food! We can't thank the staff enough for being super organized and kind to our guests. Growing up in a family where food was always the highlight of the party, it made me super happy to hear that all our guests (vegetarian and non) enjoyed their meals. Make sure to order the seafood platter and salmon. They are to die for! We also liked how we had the flexibility of when we wanted our bar to be cash, closed or limit certain alcoholic shots as we have some rowdy friends.

    -LOCATION-
    Besides the amazing view of Mount Cheam and the Bison, the best part was having the venue to ourselves! No need to worry about outside guests peeking in or wandering around. No need to worry about getting ready at someone's house or hotel as they have a bridal room & grooms room. No need to rent limos to transport your bridal party to take photos either as there are many gorgeous spots around the lodge to take photos! It was nice to have everything available in one location. Also - we were SUPER fortunate to be allowed into the venue the day before to set up! It made our wedding day very relaxed and stress free!

    If I were to do it all again, I'd definitely be back!
