Beautiful Garden Wedding

We recently got married at the Cove and it was literally the perfect day! We got married in the garden and then had our reception in the reception room. Our guests raved about the food and our late night poutine bar was a hit! Terry was very helpful throughout the wedding planning process and answered all my questions in a timely manner! We loved that most of our guests were able to stay at the Cove as well! It made for a very fun weekend!

Beautiful venue

We couldn鈥檛 have asked for a more beautiful spot for our wedding. Terry was such a great support from beginning to end and was amazing to work with. The food and drink were amazing and the poutine bar was definitely a highlight.

Beautiful Beach Front Venue!

Prior to covid me and my husband wanted to have a destination wedding in Mexico. When covid hit we started thinking of alternatives and being from British Columbia we thought a beach front wedding in the Okanagan would be the next best thing. We found The Cove while searching for beach venues and as soon as we saw the pictures of the beach front ceremony venue we fell in love. When we saw the venue in person we were even more in love. It feels like you're at a beach front resort somewhere else not in Canada. It is absolutely stunning. I was also pleased with everything the package included a dinner tasting, a complimentary wedding night suite, rehearsal practice, the beach venue for the ceremony and a stunning private room separate from the resort for the reception. The coordinator Terry is very clear right off the bat with what areas he assists you with and what areas he does not. He was our point of communication for things like site tours, dinner tasting, and day of time line. He was on site for the day of but he mostly works within the background of the wedding so if you are looking for some one to guide you the day of it is best to hire a day of coordinator or wedding planner. I was very pleased with the service staff for our reception dinner. I was blown away by the chef who is the same chef for the restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing we actually did our rehearsal dinner at the restaurant as well and all of our guests wouldn't stop raving about the food at the rehearsal as well as the wedding. We were even told by many guests it was the best wedding food they've ever had. The restaurant manager, Patrick is awesome! He is so friendly and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be coming back to The Cove whether it is to dine in at the restaurant or stay for the weekend.

Beautiful Lakeside Wedding Venue Resort

The Cove Lakeside Resort is such a remarkable waterfront location. The rooms are spacious and clean with lots of window light. The staff are accommodating, friendly and professional. As wedding photographers, the venue is impressive with two stunning ceremony locations as well as reception spaces. There are also many photo locations on the grounds as well as very close by, which make the Cove Resort a very convenient, one-stop wedding venue. The food is always sensational, the property is very well-maintained, family-friendly, yet still encompasses a romantic atmosphere. We highly recommend the Cove as a wedding venue, a beautiful place to visit while visiting the Okanagan, or even a stay-cation!!

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鈥檚 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.

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.

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 :)

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!

Beautiful Wedding Venue

I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better spot for our small wedding. The staff were all amazing and Terry was excellent to work with. We hit a few snags along the way due to covid, but we were still able to make everything work out perfectly. Highly recommend this as a venue! We got married in the gardens and I would definitely recommend this over the beach. It鈥檚 so private and beautiful!
