History

The name Grouse Mountain was given by the first recorded hikers to reach the summit in October 1894. During those days, the hikers had to pass through snow, rocks, and deep forests to reach the top. The hunters honoured the blue grouse they hunted to survive by naming the mountain after them. The mountain started attracting more hikers; among them were Don and Phyllis Munday, who are credited with building the first log cabin on the mountain.

    Great venue, great food and of course great view!

    Grouse Mountain was the first thing we thought about for a reception venue when we got engaged. However, we didn't actually look into it as we thought it would be far above our budget, but after asking around at a few other venues which all turned out quite expensive we asked Grouse for a quote. They were almost half as expensive as the rest of the ones we looked at were and very affordable. While they were also the venue that would look the best by far.
    We had booked the Timber Room which comes with a deck with a beautiful lookout over Vancouver. We were crazy lucky with the weather and had unlimited vision.
    As the weather was so good, it was really busy at the mountain, but they made sure that ourselves, the vendors and our guests could skip the line and get up and down the Skyride quickly.
    Liza was very patient with us and very helpful, especially when our date approached.
    The food. I can’t even begin about how amazing the food was. I think almost every single one of our guests mentioned how much they liked it. Some even pointed out that the cake, which was part of their buffet desserts, was just as amazing as the wedding cake we got at an actual bakery. Even the simplest things they had tasted absolutely amazing.
    Our family asked for a beamer last moment and Liza was super accommodating. We also decided last moment that we did actually want a toast and Liza made sure that it was arranged right away. We both would totally recommend Grouse as your wedding venue.

    Amazing venue

    It was really easy to organize the event on Grouse. We couldn't have asked for a more Vancouver location for our out-of-town guests. They even have a little bridal cabin up there where you can spend the night. We were able to take stunning pictures on the mountain. The wedding coordinator (Liza) was fast and efficient and made the process really smooth. The only complaint we had was the food. Grouse has to do the catering and the food was mediocre (average wedding food with above average prices). The alcohol was also a bit pricey. However, given the beautiful room (that needed little decor), private deck with the best view and amazing experience for guests, I wouldn't change the venue.

    Super Easy Wedding Day

    Grouse was quick to respond to our inquiry, work with our budget, and fairly flexible with our needs. We had a potential security issue with a possible gate crasher and Grouse already had a protocol in place - it was really awesome to know that my day wasn't going to be hijacked! We were able to hold our rehearsal on the mountaintop and have our bridal party attend a menu tasting. Our coordinator was so on top of things that nothing was forgotten. If I forgot to sign something or put an item in our timeline, she'd send me a quick email. She was happy to answer the random questions emailed at 2am, too.

    My only disappointment was that we weren't able to access the reception room until 4:30pm day-of to decorate. The ceremony was supposed to be at 3 on the deck. We moved the "I do" to later in the evening (with an amazing sunset at dinner!) and everything was fine. At the last minute, Grouse let us into the venue for 3:30pm so our friends could decorate and the bridal party wandered the mountain for some memorable photos at the bear habitat and in the snow.

    Grouse Mountain

    We had a truly amazing experience. Liza was super easy to work with and very accommodating. We received so many compliments the day of with how smooth everything was and beautiful. Staff were very attentive throughout the day, constantly serving guests whatever they asked for. The food was delicious, presentation awesome. Wouldn’t hesitate to book or work with them for another event. We are so happy we got married on top of a mountain overlooking the city we grew up in.

    We want to tell Liza Kenny and Renee how thankful we are for working with us! We made the right choice to pick the Grouse Mountain as a place for our wedding celebration!
    Our guests were amazed by how well everything was organized and really enjoyed friendly staff and overall organization.
    We got very lucky it was very sunny and clear! :)
    I can't imagine our wedding celebration without your help! Liza, you did a huge job for us and we appreciate it!

    Thank you so much my dear!
