Time goes by slowly at the Fraser River Lodge. This pristine venue is located near Agassiz, British Columbia 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 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 50 guests, the field allows for 200 guests, and the outdoor Marquee Tent is also offered as 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 privately, and their Honeymoon Suite is included in all standard Wedding Packages.
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 arbors), 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, a 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 are available for an additional cost.
We are proud to introduce our new Executive Chef, Justin Paakkunainen! While boasting an impressive 20 plus years in the kitchen, our Chef brings a consistently refreshing new menu to our guests. Driven by an unwavering passion for the art of cooking, and a constant desire to grow in his craft, Chef Justin is always searching for new ways to breach the barriers of our guest's expectations for pallet pleasing, illustrious meals. We take particular pride in supporting local farmers, and businesses by sourcing our foods locally, or as we like to say "farm-to-table." We also go to great lengths to purchase our seafood locally, ensuring that we provide the highest quality and freshness.
Chef Justin Paakkunainen 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.

Best. Venue. Ever
Once we got to Fraser, we met with Wendy. Wendy asked us some questions and proceed to walk us through the venue. As we walked around and saw the mountains, we immediately fell in love. Wendy talk us through all the details, offers and all the things that was included in the package and we reserved the date.
Then COVID hit. Fraser offered one time reschedule for free, so we extended one year out. Unfortunately, it was too soon, so we extended it again with small fee.
Finally, as the date got closer, Wendy and the team started contact us and making sure what we wanted is listed. It was very detailed list and I'm so glad they did this.
We booked for 2 days, one rehearsal dinner (day before) and the wedding day. When we got there for the rehearsal dinner, it was then I realized how amazing this place was.
We were greeted by everyone. Cynthia, the manager of the servers, took care of us. She remembered I don't drink, made sure people always had their drinks or whatever they need. This went on for both days we were there.
Something is really special about Fraser, not only just the views. I think because when you book the venue, the whole venue is yours. There will be no stranger on the premise. So all the staff knows you and your family and you really get treated like VIPs.
On the wedding day, Wendy and the team kept in touch with us, make sure the vendors connected with each other and got what they needed.
It was a bitter sweet moment for us with Fraser. We were "together" for 2 years, keep in touch and continue planning. Then it all came together in 1 day.
Our wedding went very smoothly. Some small hiccup that got addressed quickly. For the ones that didn't, I don't think I remember or it mattered.
I'm not sure if we would have gotten the same treatment or experience had we gone somewhere else. All I know is, all of our family and friends told us how much they enjoyed our wedding and how beautiful the venue is.
Thank you Fraser and everyone on the team for taking care of us (and our family and friends) and made our special day even more special.
