New Years Eve Wedding of our dreams.
We chose the Cove Lakeside Resort for our New Years Eve wedding on December 31, 2019. It was outstanding in every aspect. Terry Pritchett, the wedding coordinator was excellent to work with. His experience in this type of event planning was very much appreciated. He spent time with us to ensure that our vision for this special day materialized to perfection. He was prompt to respond to any of our questions or concerns in the planning process and offered great suggestions along the way. Our ceremony was in the Gellatly Reserve Room and the dinner/reception was in the Grand Reserve Ballroom. The meal was fantastic and enjoyed by all. The Grand Reserve Ballroom proved to be a beautiful warm and inviting space for our reception. We had 78 people attend and had plenty of room for round tables and a dance floor without taking any tables away. Every single staff member that worked that evening was very attentive to our needs and the needs of our guests. They were truly awesome! All of our out of town guests stayed at the resort along with 90% of the local guests. The guest suites are second to none. It made for a very stress free day not having to worry about travelling from the ceremony to the reception and from the reception home. Although the weather was a little less than desirable we were able to get some beautiful outdoor photo’s on site in the gardens and lakefront area that surround the resort. We would not hesitate to recommend the Cove Resort to anyone considering having their wedding there. Summer or winter it is the perfect venue, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 05/04/2020

Breathtaking beach front resort
My husband and I wanted to get married on a beach, preferably in Mexico or something to that liking. However, some family health issues had us reconsider travelling outside of Canada and took us to find a beach front venue in the Okanagan instead. The pictures of the Cove Lakeside Resort do not do the property justice. We got married on the Beach, had cocktails on the Gellatly Terrace, and dinner in the Grand Reserve Room. It was everything we could have asked for and more! From the waves in the background while we said our I do's on the beach, to taking our bridal party photos on the property and next door at the Gellatly Nut Farm (GREAT place to take pictures), and ending the evening in the Grand Reserve Room, it was the perfect Venue. As every wedding does, there were a few hiccups along the way, but Terry Pritchett, the Cove's wedding coordinator was absolutely FANTASTIC! With the exception of a Day of Coordinator, I planned my own wedding. I am thankful he was he was quick to respond, courteous and always made time to answer any questions I had. Both Patrick & Elizabeth were also extremely helpful the day prior during our Rehearsal & the day of. My only word of advice for future brides - if your guest list is upwards of 95/100 guests, know that the Grand Reserve room is a "cozy" room - we had 95 guests, and it was great for dinner and speeches, but come dance time, we asked the Cove to put away 2 tables so we had extra room to tear up the dance floor. But all in all, I am so happy we picked the Cove for our special day and thank everyone who made our dream come true :)Sent on 23/09/2019

Great Wedding Coordinator & Beautiful Venue
The Cove was a beautiful location for our August 2019 wedding. The wedding coordinator Terry was amazing to work with and was able to accommodate all our requests and guide us through the planning process. The staff were prompt and friendly for the setup/takedown, bartending, and food service. The food was so good, all our guests loved it. Everyone who spent the weekend at the cove had a great time enjoying the pools and surrounding area. We definitely recommend this venue for a wedding.Sent on 28/01/2020

Beautiful Resort Feel
We chose the Cove for ease of planning, location and the resort feel.
Pros:Cove supplies/sets up chairs, tables, linens at the ceremony site and reception areas, this relieves a lot of stress /saves time for clothe couple and who ever is helping you. They are flexible with design requests. Excellent day of service & super tasty food.All round Beautiful and relaxing resort feel. Each unit is spacious, has a hideabed in living area and has a kitchen and balcony. Each one I saw was beautiful and different. All views are nice! We were able to have family get togethers in each room with plenty of space- seating inside and out. Gellaty nut farm literally right beside. We didn’t leave the area for photos. We feel our time was maximized here with no running around. Perfect for small kids too. Bar staff excellent!
Cons:Some hidden service fees w plated meals, 3 day min to stay at resort- lots of our guests stayed elsewhere but we would have loved everyone in one location. The pictures in brochure/website do not directly reflect what’s included in the fee, for example the pictures show up graded chairs/linens and personal table numbers (chairs and table numbers are supplied) This just adds an unexpected cost if you’re particular about the design side.Sent on 13/09/2018

Our Dream Wedding at The Cove Lakeside Resort - Kelowna
We held our dream wedding at The Cove on August 30th, 2019. It was a phenomenal venue! The staff was amazing, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was beautiful.Sent on 30/09/2019
Terry Pritchett was amazing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, knowledgeable, punctual, and assisted us in achieving quite a few little extras we planned for our big day! He was also full of tips, tricks and advise which proved to be extremely beneficial in our planning process!
Between the Cove management and staff, and the incredible vendors we utilized, we had the most spectacular day. Our guests are still talking about it a month later, and the feedback has been 100% positive.
A BIG thank you to all of the staff at The Cove for making our wedding such a memorable experience.
