    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Cait and Wil

    Best experience!!

    We hosted our reception here at the Cove. Terry Pritchett was so so helpful. He was very responsive and very accommodating to what we wanted. He gave us a great deal. We had a lot of our guests stay at the hotel for a discount and everyone felt spoiled during their stay. The grand room was transformed with stringed lighting (we put up ourselves), long tables with greenery and candles everywhere. Our wedding was 110 and it fit everyone perfectly and felt so cozy. Food was amazing. I have no regrets about our decision!!! I just wish I could relive the day!
