    Best venue in the lower mainland

    Fraser River Lodge hosted our wedding in October and knocked it out of the park. We chartered a fishing trip the day before with Mike and his refusal to get skunked resulted in us getting a beautiful tour of the Fraser River followed by our first sturgeon!
    Wendy was a wedding hero, helping us organize everything on the venue side of things, reassuring us, and being a guiding light. The venue was an amazing blend of laid-back when needed & supportive and prepared when needed.
    And if the chef doesn't have a Michelin star yet, he should.
    I highly recommend the venue for both fishing charters and weddings!

    Amazing experience with FRL!

    We have nothing but good things to say about Fraser River Lodge. The staff from the time we booked to the day of the event were absolutely amazing. They were organized, friendly and beyond helpful. Our guests are still raving about the buffet dinner, which had lots of options that suited everyones needs (including those with food allergies). The lodge rooms were cozy, and they provided a nice touch of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to the bridge and grooms suite the wedding night. And the view was of course spectacular!

    Traci, thanks for posting such an awesome review. All of us here at the lodge had such a fun time working your wedding. It was so nice that you booked the lodge for 2 days, it gave us all a chance to get to know your group a little better, especially those crazy Australians and Bobsledders!! Congrats again to you and Lucas!!

    Organized, relaxed, friendly staff, experienced in weddings/large events

    We recently got married at the Fraser River Lodge and loved our experience! The communication with the Lodge through the planning process was prompt, and they did a great job in answering all my (many) question. The staff at the Lodge is friendly- all our guest are still talking about how attentive and experience they were. The food was delicious and they did easily accommodate non dairy and celiac plates for some of our guests. The location is beautiful and we are so happy to have celebrated our special day there.

    Amazing venue!

    We absolutely loved having our wedding at Fraser River Lodge! Both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations are beautiful. Wendy and her team are responsive, professional, and very accommodating to our needs. They were able to make changes to the menu, and accommodate last minute changes to our guest number. Everyone absolutely raved about the food; it is by far the best food we have had at a wedding! Overall FRL made our wedding day so amazing and unforgettable.

    Leave your guests speechless

    We were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, and scenery. The food was out of this world and all our guests commented positively on the quality and quantity. The rooms and out post were the perfect paring and we loved being able to relax onsite. The venue played a huge part in the success of our weekend and one of the main reasons our guests are still taking about our ceremony and reception. We can’t thank Wendy and her team enough.

    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!

    Clara & Max, I really enjoyed getting to know you through this planning process and I was genuinely honored to have played a small part in pulling this together (with the help of our awesome FRL team too!). Of course, it really helps to have amazing clients like you to work with. The huge smiles on your faces, warmed my heart.
    All the very best,

    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!!!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words Natasha. I'm thrilled that your wedding was everything you hoped it would be. Congrats to you and Trevor!! Come back a visit us again.

    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.

    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!
