    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!

    Blown away

    We were absolutely blown away by our wedding experience at Sage. Nicky, and everyone and everything about Sage, exceeded our wildest expectations. With everything going on with Covid and the changes to our wedding, we were not expecting to still be able to get married at Sage. However, Nicky and Sage made it happen, and with so much warmth and care and absolute professionalism….. Nicky’s communication is the best I’ve ever experienced, let alone in the wedding industry. And his kindness with us, and eye for and attention to detail made him a dream to work with, and the biggest blessing for our wedding. And the venue could not have been more beautiful and perfect for our wedding, big or small, and the food was spectacular, and everyone who helped us on our wedding day was so kind and accommodating, and we got so many compliments from our guests on everything from the view to the vibe to the service to the food, and we are just so grateful and blown away by how well everything went, thanks to Sage and Nicky. We could not recommend them more, and will be forever grateful to them for making our wedding the incredible experience that it was. Thank you Nicky and Sage from the bottom of our hearts. You exceeded our wildest expectations, and are just so lovely and incredible to work with. Getting married at Sage was the best decision we made.

    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!
