Situated in Vancouver's West End is the Roedde House Museum, a superb late-Victorian house made in the Queen Anne revival style and an excellent venue for a vintage style wedding. Constructed in 1893 for the family of Gustav Roedde, the city's first bookbinder, this magnificent building has been truly restored to authentically represent the daily life of a middle class immigrant family.
Facilities and capacity
This stunning museum venue acts as a great place to hold a beautiful and classic celebration. The first floor provides exquisite living and dining rooms which are able to hold up to fifty to sixty-five family and friends for a reception and thirty-five guests for a seated event. Their outdoor space also offers an elegant atmosphere.
For insurance purposes, one or more staff members will be present. A entertainer booked by the couple has the option to use a 1983 Steinway piano which sits in the parlour. Their 1980's kitchen is equipped with a modern fridge, dishwasher and microwave that can be used. Speakers that are connected to an ipod dock are set up throughout the space.
In addition, China cups and saucers are available for use but any required tableware and a liquor license must be provided by outside vendors. If necessary, the museum is able to recommend fantastic vendors for the future newlyweds.
