    UBC Sage - 10/10 Would Recommend!

    We had such a great experience with UBC Sage... they put together a beautiful wedding in less than two months, and they were a delight to deal with. Meagan was our contact and she went above and beyond - answering my 4-5 emails a day, searching her own house for a steamer for my dress, making sure all of my million dietary requests were met for all of our guests, providing a special chair and extension cord for my gran to have a comfortable seat and heating pad for dinner... she was just so lovely. Everyone was raving about the food (we did the Lion's Bay menu with an added gnocchi course - delish), and the we thought the prices (both food and beverage) were very reasonable. Can't say enough about this venue!

    Great Food and Super Easy to Work With

    We had our wedding at Cecil Green, which has Sage as the in-house caterer. The food was very tasty, and there were plenty of options for everyone. (Levi reached out to me a while before the wedding to make sure there would be special vegan options for myself and a few of the guests, since there wasn't a vegan entree on any of there buffet menus.)

    They were very responsive and easy to work with through the planning process. Since we were working without a coordinator, they helped us with figuring out how much food to order and fine-tune our timeline.

    On the day of, everything ran like clockwork. Everything was ready when we needed it and everything ran perfectly on schedule. (And the food was great!)

    Great service and delicious flavors from around the world.

    Working with Sage Catering for our wedding at Cecil Green Park House has been a dream. Levi, the business development manager, was very flexible when it came to our ever-changing needs and wants. He was communicative and responsive to our emails, even with the busy wedding season, and never failed to update us throughout the wedding planning process. Levi and the Sage staff were able to accommodate our guests' allergies and dietary restrictions, and we still get compliments on the food, especially the salmon, scallops and pork belly, brisket sliders, and the baos. Thank you Levi and the entire staff at Sage Catering for making our dream wedding menu our reality, and for making the delicious spread of food that encompassed both of our different cultures.

    Highly recommend!

    Sage was very accommodating in planning a wedding during COVID! Nicky in particular was fantastic in answering all our questions, and seeing our vision come to life. Nicky is like a pseudo wedding planner and very knowledgeable. The Sage venue itself is fantastic because their are multiple different settings allowing for reception/ceremony indoors or outdoors. We did a buffet for our reception and we’re shocked how good the food was!

    Rose Garden and Sage Wedding July 2021

    We held our wedding at the Rose Garden and Sage Bistro in July 2021 (originally rescheduled from May 2020). Nicky, the event coordinator was incredible to work with. He was immediately responsive to any questions we had, and most importantly, very flexible when it came to changes due to COVID (we ended up rescheduling 3 times!). He clearly showed that he cares for the couples he works with and wants them to have the most amazing day - which we did!

    The venue itself was gorgeous, and the staff were all wonderful. Many of our guests were amazed at the ocean and coastal mountain views from the Rose Garden and the Sage Patio. The food was incredible (and exactly as we remembered it from our tasting), and all of our guests were raving about the food, from the cocktail hour to the late night snack. We can't recommend this beautiful venue more!

    The dream team experience

    The breadth of experience and knowledge of the team, led by Nicky Lau, was excellent. They led us through the entire planning process and helped trouble shoot our questions with grace and kindness. The venue itself provided stunning mountain and ocean views and the patio is surrounded by soaring evergreens. We highly recommend Sage for your wedding venue.

    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
