Bodega was PERFECT for our wedding!
We found Bodega Ridge on The Venue Report when we were looking for venues for our wedding. We are avid travelers, both wedding industry professionals (photo and video), so we had a certain level of aesthetics and expectations, while also really wanting our wedding to be focused on our marriage and a relaxed gathering for family and friends rather than a perfect Pinterest wedding. It was important to us to find a place where our friends and family (from all over the globe) could come and stay on the property for the weekend (both at the Ridge and the Cove) and explore the area. Bodega Ridge checked all the boxes - BC was a place we had always wanted to go, the location is remote enough to feel private, but easily accessible from Vancouver, and ridiculously stunning! To top it all off, the owner Jesse and our venue contact and coordinator Angie were absolutely gems. They were so patient with us as we planned to bring 50 of our nearest and dearest to an island we had never been to (we only visited the month before!) and we had a million questions. The staff onsite was spectacular and so friendly - the service was on point and handled with so much love and care, the food was AMAZING (I wish I could taste it again), and the weather on our weekend was spectacular! You can tell that Bodega is a labor of immense love by Jesse and his entire team - they actually care about their guests and making sure you have a spectacular wedding. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our wedding, it felt like absolute MAGIC and we plan to come back to Galiano and Bodega for years to come.Sent on 01/07/2019

Best day of our lives!
We had the absolute best day of our lives celebrating our wedding at Bodega Ridge. Jesse, Angie and all the staff made sure everything ran so smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing the whole weekend. The entire atmosphere of the resort and the island is so relaxing it was easy to just get there and enjoy the experience rather than worry about all the little details. And one of the most important things for us - the food was incredible. Interesting and unique flavours with locally sourced ingredients really made the food stand out from any other weddings we've ever attended. We chose to do family style dining for the reception and it was a great way to get all our guests interacting with each other and the beautifully presented food became not just a delicious meal but a part of our decor - we would highly recommend it.Sent on 16/07/2018

Beautiful Wedding Setting
Bodega Ridge is a true west coast/BC experience and we felt so lucky to be able to have our covid micro wedding with them. We had originally planned a 70+ wedding but Bodega was super flexible, kind and understanding with us. We ended up using both the Cove and the Ridge for our few guests and they provided a beautiful experience. The cherry on top is that Bodega comes with Angie Allen as a coordinator and she is worth her weight in gold. Despite the challenges of a covid, Bodega helped pull off a serene and amazing wedding experience for us!Sent on 30/06/2020

You will not regret hosting your wedding here!
We were married at Bodega Ridge in July 2019 and can’t say enough positive words about how wonderful of an experience it was! The list of wonderful things could go on and on, but below are a few highlights:Sent on 07/08/2019
• The food! We received SO MANY compliments on how delicious the food was, with many guests even saying it was the best wedding food they’d ever had (I would very much agree!). I could eat the salmon wellington for every meal, and the paella is not only absolutely delicious, but is made in a huge pan in front of you and your guests. The portions of all of the food were very generous – huge kudos to the kitchen team!
• Organisation/planning support – wedding planning support comes with booking the venue, and Angie is the most wonderful, calming, lovely lady you could ever hope for to help you plan your wedding. She is an absolute pro. Being totally clueless to organizing a wedding and very much making things up as we went along, it was so reassuring to have Angie there to guide us with the tasks we needed to be doing, and with great advice and suggestions on anything we asked. On our wedding day we were also supported by Danika who was equally lovely, super organized and ensured the day went without a hitch – I didn’t have one moment of stress the whole time I was at Bodega Ridge :)
• The venue itself – is just out of this world stunning. We hosted 60+ guests from outside Canada, and it was the most perfect setting to show off the true beauty of the BC coast and to help them truly understand why we love living here. We and our guests stayed onsite for 3 nights, and had the most magical time tucked away in the quiet beauty of Galiano Island. As well as the natural beauty that Bodega Ridge has to offer, the lodge, cabins and all of the extras have been restored and designed with such great style and care. Having previously researched other venues where we would have to source all of the extras like tables and chairs ourselves, it was so exciting to come to Bodega and have such good quality and aesthetically pleasing furniture/items there for us to make use of.
Thanks Jesse, Angie, Danika and the whole Bodega Ridge team – you are all so lovely! A totally outstanding venue, I just wish we could do it all again.
Bodega Ridge's reply:Thank you Charlie. It was such a pleasure to host you and your family!

The most stunning wedding venue, with the best staff!
We held our wedding at Bodega Ridge last month and can’t speak highly enough about it. We knew we wanted to get married on one of the Gulf Islands and when we began researching, the Bodega website jumped right out at us as exactly what we were looking for, so we went ahead and booked without even visiting! It was 100% the right decision. The whole planning process was made easy with Jesse and Angie’s guidance and advice along the way, despite the added challenges of an island wedding. In fact, all of the staff were amazing, with the most positive, can do attitude. Nothing was too much trouble. The actual event was just magical and our guests (many from the UK) were blown away. The cabins are fantastic, the stunning ceremony site, grounds and lodge, not to mention the views. The food was some of the best I have ever tasted, again something many of our guests agreed with and commented on. Being able to have the wedding over a three-day period made it so special as the guests really got to know each other and were able to completely take in and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of beautiful Galiano Island. Thanks again to the whole team!Sent on 13/08/2019
