    Wedding Venue Hidden Gem

    When COVID forced us to explore a smaller wedding venue, we heard about Sage from our marriage commissioner. During our site check, we were impressed with the different event space options available (Small/Medium/Large) and ended up going with The Ideas Lounge & Garden Terrace. This not only provided us with the outdoor reception space we wanted, but doubled as a rain plan for our outdoor wedding close by. James & Nicky were extremely flexible with our requests (I don't recall them saying 'No' once) and helped us customize a menu based off their many meal offerings. They easily ordered a special beer request for us and the price was very reasonable for our party of 30. All our guests had an amazing time at Sage and our wedding coordinator LOVED that they could access that site at 9am to get a start on the set up. Would recommend working with Nicky & James and booking The Ideas Lounge/Garden area to anyone needing an event space in the future.

    Super helpful

    Fani and Nicky were super helpful and responsive throughout the process. And they were hugely helpful and flexible in navigating a weird year of having your wedding booked during a pandemic. I couldn't recommend them enough!

    Amazing venue and staff!

    Exceeded all expectations! We had an intimate wedding with 13 guests at the beautiful courtyard and had our dinner at the Ideas Lounge. We were in such great hands with Nicky, who was always super responsive, accommodating and made great recommendations for our wedding.

    We chose Sage, not only because of the beautiful venue and location, but because of their flexibility with the terms of our wedding contract, which was really important to us since we were planning this wedding in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions and had already cancelled our original destination wedding plans. Sage was so accommodating and would have returned our deposit if we couldn’t have our wedding due to COVID-19 restrictions.
    Thankfully, restrictions eased before our wedding, and I am so glad we were able to do our wedding at Sage. We are so amazed at how well everything went all thanks to the wonderful Sage team, and especially Nicky. Nicky knew our entire wedding itinerary and details by heart and even stepped in to set up the decor when he noticed that we were running behind schedule. The food was absolutely delicious – all of guests raved about the hor d’oeuvres (especially the lamb popsicles!), the dinner and our open bar!

    I highly recommend Sage as your wedding venue. You will be in such great hands!

    One of the best choices I ever made was hosting my wedding at Sage!

    After moving our wedding date 3x this crazy year, I searched online for a venue I could trust was safe and properly handled for COVID. I cannot believe how incredible a venue this was and how incredible the team and Nicky was in helping us last minute pull together our wedding (in under a month!). I just literally cannot say enough good things about how beautiful, clean, organized, well maintained, safe, gorgeous, and wonderful Sage was to host our wedding in the Ideas Lounge, with a small group of people, under some crazy circumstances. Even more new BC COVID policies came into place while we were planning the small 20 person wedding, and I just felt very safe and very taken care of by the staff. I would recommend this venue to anyone for any private event. Not only do they cater (absolutely DELICIOUS food), they also provide beverage/alcohol service, service staff, and all kinds of materials needed for celebrations (sound system, easels, the list goes on). Anything we needed help with, Nicky was there. I really cannot say enough good things about how amazing the staff and venue and especially Nicky are!!!! - Natasa

    COVID-friendly rose garden ceremony and Sage reception

    We had a beautiful 50-person wedding at Sage in September 2020. Our ceremony was at the UBC rose garden and then the canapes, tea ceremony, and dinner reception were at Sage. When we researched venues, the thing we liked most about Sage was the space! There are mountain/water views and you get full usage of the Sage building including a courtyard, getting-ready rooms, and some lounge areas. We had originally planned to have 160+ guests but had to downsize to 50 due to COVID restrictions. Given the long-narrow layout of the restaurant, this actually worked really well; it felt intimate but everyone had enough space to abide by the rules.
    Sage was closed for a few months in the spring but once they re-opened, Fani and her team were transparent with us about the changes in policy and lenient about F&B minimum. I also appreciate that she sent us photos of the other weddings leading up to ours so we could get a better feel of what a "covid wedding" would be like! The food that day was really delicious and Sage won't break the bank! If you're a UBC alumni, you can get a discount as well. We had a beautiful 50-person wedding at Sage in September 2020.

Since we planned our wedding during the pandemic, Fani setup Zoom meetings to chat with us to provide us with updates on changes around the venue and answer any of our questions. This flexibility was helpful to us!
