    Beautiful, flexible venue, outstanding menu, amazing staff

    I’ll preface this by saying I’ve been working in weddings for ten years, the past five of which I’ve been in wedding planning/design. This meant that I came in to this venue with a lot of ideas and a very specific vision. Sage was absolutely perfect in every way for this, and I could not have asked for a better venue manager than Nicky to help me bring my vision to life.
    Nicky was extremely responsive, always had very helpful suggestions, and was completely open to us utilising the venue however suited us and our guests best. In fact, he welcomed the opportunity to do things he and the venue hadn’t done before so that they could find new ways of doing things and expand their portfolio of ideas.
    The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and has both mountain and ocean views, which was perfect for hosting our mostly out-of-town guests. The outstanding, modern Arthur Erickson design is a blank canvas and lent itself so easily to our minimal mid-century modern decor (as it would to ANY type of decor) and the venue’s stock tables and chairs were much nicer than anything I would have considered renting from a rental company. Nicky was very accommodating in letting us do what we wanted with the layout of the room(s) to make the space(s) our own. Both the indoor and outdoor areas were very flexible and we were able to host different parts of our day in all different places, keeping the visuals interesting for photos and allowing us and our guests to really experience the venue.
    My groom and groomsmen set up our decor in the morning and the staff were completely on top of getting tables, chairs, ceremony space, dinner space, and cocktail space set up. They were helpful in moving items and answering any set up questions we had. They made sure everything got done well ahead of schedule!
    The food was beyond delicious and the menu was easily the one thing I got the most compliments on - our guests loved everything! The kitchen was happy to make minor changes to include certain ingredients we love, and also accommodate any kind of allergy. They were completely on top of who needed what and were very quick - every one of our 95 guests ate the same course at the same time - and they cleared quietly and efficiently. Everyone was very professional and kind.
    I (obviously) can’t say enough good things about Sage, so I'll just say this: of all the venues I’ve ever worked in for weddings, Sage is by far my favourite. I can’t recommend this place enough for any type of event - you'll absolutely love working with Nicky and Sage.

    Perfect Wedding

    We had a fantastic wedding at Sage and it was an amazing experience for us and our approximately 110 guests. It comes with a wonderful view and it made for a lot of interesting photos and video opportunities. The venue was overall perfect for us and our needs. The coordination with Nicky and the team was smooth and he answered all our questions promptly and with sufficient detail (unlike some other venues we contacted). They accommodated several visits for us to visualize and plan the setting and placements of decorations, tables etc. and taste the wonderful food that we would later have at the reception! Nicky was very easy to communicate with and told us everything we need to know and offered advice based on what other people had done in previous weddings, and provided a lot of help in the wedding planning process (We didn't need a wedding planner). Thank you so much for the unforgettable experience we had at Sage and we highly recommend the venue for all!

    Would highly recommend!

    Nicky was professional and accommodating throughout our pre-wedding planning. He was thorough and quick with all his email responses and made sure that the venue/dinner was the way we had planned it. The food was delicious and the scenery stunning to say the least. Would highly recommend!

    Everything we could have asked for and more!!!!!

    Without hesitation we would recommend Sage to a friend. In fact, there is no one we wouldn't recommend Sage to. The venue was everything we imagined it could be. It is an elegant space that has floor to ceiling windows highlighting the gorgeous view of the North Shore mountains. Outside, the large patio space was ideal for hosting guests for a cocktail and appetizers, all while enjoying the same view. The bar, much like the rest of the space, was classic and required very little in the way of decor to accentuate its well appointed finishes. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely accommodating of any and all allergies and dietary restrictions.

    Perhaps the best part of our experience with Sage was the attentive and thoughtful guidance of the event coordinator Nicky. Nicky ensured that every question we had was answered, every concern quelled, and every detail organized. He was quick to respond to emails and went above and beyond our expectations.

    Awesome Experience with Sage

    My husband and I chose Sage Bistro for our wedding ceremony and reception. We couldn't have been happier with the experience. Staff were friendly and helpful right from the planning stages, and they took care of every tiny detail. Catering, setting up and taking down tables and chairs, organizing the outdoor ceremony, and even suggesting a fantastic list of vendors that we ended up using for music, flowers and decorations. Our wedding was affordable and personal, and the Sage Bistro team went above and beyond to make the experience perfect. I would highly recommend their services.
