Perfect Venue, Our 1st Choice!
The John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse was an amazing venue and it looked beautiful when completely set up. The view was gorgeous and and dock gave us some stunning sunset pictures.
The balcony was a great place for guests to mingle.
Everything went as planned and the staff were so nice and accommodating. It was our number 1 choice and were so happy we booked it. We also had so many comments about how beautiful the venue was from our guests.Sent on 25/09/2019

Perfect West Coast Venue!
UBC Boathouse was the perfect venue for our big day! We ended up needing to go with our plan B set-up due to weather, but they did all of the work, and made it the least stressful process possible. They were an excellent venue, our guests loved the view, and we had a stress-free wedding day! They were perfect for us!Sent on 29/07/2019

Best venue in the Lower Mainland
We had our reception and ceremony here for 100 people. It's an absolutely stunning venue with great West Coast vibes, with the option for an outdoor ceremony and a back-up option in case of rain. The UBC Boathouse team was incredibly responsive whenever I had a question, straightforward and clear with their contract and pricing, and the day-of venue coordinator I worked with (Morgan) was on game during the event. Would recommend to anyone looking to host an event!Sent on 10/07/2019

Flawless From Start to End
Liked that we worked with one person and discussed all options and floor plans available. Always very responsive in replying. Didn't use any of the vendors they worked with, but this would have been easy to arrange. It was a gorgeous setting and all our guests were shocked about this 'hidden gem'. Would love to host another event here.Sent on 25/07/2019

Beautiful venue with professional and helpful support team
We had our reception (not ceremony) at the venue and loved it. If you want to channel west coast / Vancouver vibes it is perfect! We barely decorated at all because it is already warm and bright with a natural vibe. Although we found it quite expensive, the fact that we didn't need to invest in decorating the space and that we could bring our own food and alcohol was a huge plus for us. It was one of the only venues we found that could accommodate a late night dance party (past 1am) and would let us bring in our own alcohol (with no exorbitant charges) for a wedding of our size (130). The staff were always responsive and helpful. There are some restrictions but you can't escape that anywhere. All of the vendors we worked with say they love working there as well, which I took as a great sign! Really the price tag is the only downside.Sent on 09/07/2019

We had a great experience at the Boathouse- everything from the first meeting to the day of the wedding was very smooth. The team is responsive, and organizing is straightforward. There are no hidden fees or surprises. The cost is a bit steep, but honestly for the views and experience it was so worth it!Sent on 17/07/2019

Perfect venue for wedding ceremony/reception
The perfect venue for our wedding ceremony & reception. They were responsive to our needs and were instrumental in making this a special day. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The venue was absolutely stunning, and our guests commented on the beauty of the location. The transition between indoors ceremony to reception was seamless. The venue was an excellent fit for our 100 guests.Sent on 03/05/2019

The UBC Boathouse was an absolutely stunning venue - what a find! The location is beautiful - right by the water, with the mountains in the background. Our guests loved it! The staff was exceptional in the months leading up to our wedding - the most responsive of all of our vendors, answering our questions so quickly and going out of their way to be helpful. We were also very impressed with the day-of venue coordinator who was so professional and so helpful, and went above and beyond. This venue is overall a great value for the money (and additionally, we were married on a Sunday which helped our budget a bit). Because the building and surrounding area are so picturesque, our decor needs were minimal. We would recommend this venue without hesitation to anyone!Sent on 29/06/2018

My husband and I got married at UBC Boathouse in October, and it was picture perfect! We were able to get some pictures on the docks as the sunset, and they came out absolutely perfect! The space was perfectly sized for our medium wedding (110 people), although we're sure it would accommodate more or less equally well. The staff were amazing and worked with us from day one to make the day unforgettable!Sent on 20/12/2018

My husband and I got married Friday August 24th, 2018 at the John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse. It was a magical day and I couldn’t have asked for a better venue to have our dream wedding at. The boathouse was incredibly organized and professional throughout the entire time! Always there to answer any questions and trust me I asked a lot. They also were two steps ahead of me with the organization of my wedding it was amazing! Thank you so much UBC Boathouse for making our wedding flawless from start to finish and for making it such a night to remember!Sent on 18/09/2018
