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 spectacularCascade Mountains.

2-200 guests can be accommodated both inside and out. A private chef with custom menus is included and a fully licensed bar is offered. On-site hair and make-up is available. There's a large deck for dancing space. The all-inclusive packages allow for guests only on property with just one wedding at a time, so there is no confusion or mix up.

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 ... View more 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.

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 ... View more 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!

Fraser River Lodge is such a beautiful venue! The view is amazing and makes a great backdrop for photos. The venue itself has a rustic feel but looks new and is very clean. We booked out the venue and the outpost house next door for 2 nights and our guests had the time of their ... View more lives. We had so many compliments of how much fun it was, what a great beautiful venue it is and the food was excellent and very fresh. Also it was very nice that once we booked the place then it is solely ours to use which made for a great intimate wedding with our guests. The staff at the Fraser River Lodge were also super friendly and accommodating, especially Wendy and Jodie who helped co-ordinate our wedding. They were very responsive, gave great suggestions and had all the details about the venue on hand. They are very experienced and go above and beyond to ensure your wedding runs smoothly the entire time. We can't thank every one of the staff at the Fraser River Lodge enough for making our day truly special! We would have our wedding there again in a heartbeat and recommend staying the 2 nights to really soak up all the beauty of nature.

Fraser River Lodge is a beautiful venue. Even in the rain! When we went out to see it the first time, my husband told me I would be hard pressed to find somewhere else that he would like as much (so that settled that!). The lodge itself is well-built and feels very new. The ... View more mountains/river are such a great backdrop. The food was incredible. The bar service was perfect. Working with Wendy/Jodie was wonderful. I never felt like I was being a naggy bride. They always replied to everything so quickly and had very helpful responses. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. They let us bring our trailer up so our dogs had somewhere to sleep (the lodge rooms aren't pet friendly, we didn't have a dog-sitter and we wanted our dog to be the ring bearer - and they were so accommodating!). One of my bridesmaids and I were able to stay in the lodge the night before (Friday night) so we were on-site bright and early for hair/makeup too. So grateful for that! Overall, our guests loved it and kept saying it was such a perfect venue for our wedding :) There were a few areas of opportunity of course but don't let them dissuade you! We would 100% have our wedding here all over again :) -Dessert Bar: A large number of our guests (including the bride/groom/immediate families) had no idea the dessert bar was put out so they didn't get any dessert (and we had opted for the dessert bar instead of a traditional wedding cake). It would've been helpful if someone had told our DJ so he could make an announcement or if the coordinators told my husband and I - or set aside a plate for us. I also wish they didn't take it away so quickly (or again, make an announcement that they had to clear it down so people could load up plates). -Wedding Day-Of Planner: I know there is a ton to do on the wedding day but throughout the process, I was assured I didn't need a wedding planner because the venue would do everything for us. I really wish I had one on the day of to attend to the bridal party. Jodie/Wendy were amazing and super busy doing all the other things but when we were in hair/makeup, there was nobody to help get our lunch (and the boys' lunch) out of the cooler, or to run up to grab us coffee or help the photographers when they needed a less ugly hanger for dress photos. Thankfully my mum came early so she could be our little helper running around like a madwoman. Wendy did pop in maybe 2 or 3 times but we really needed a more full-time presence (or someone we could text to come by if we needed something). -Ceremony walk-through: Because this is in Agassiz and members of our wedding party had small kids, it was too hard to arrange a rehearsal/rehearsal dinner. We were told we'd get a quick walkthrough before things began but we didn't. It would've made things less stressful if someone had told the groom/groomsmen where to stand and the bridesmaids etc. We winged it and it was fine but anything to alleviate anxiety is crucial especially when we set expectations with the bridal party that we'd get a quick briefing. The total cost below is a guess (it's been a few months now). It includes our wedding size (107 people which were 93 adults, 15 children), lodge accommodation and bar tab.
