Facilities and Capacity

With 250,000 square feet of space for couples and guests to make use of, The Nest at UBC is a truly vast building. Complete with over 21,000 square feet of exterior areas, it is a truly complete venue. From the outside, its glass facade offers a truly remarkable backdrop for anyone who wants to mark the milestone with social media-worthy photographs. Inside, the “I do” moment can be enjoyed at the designated ceremony space. Here, chairs may be arranged for the couple’s guests to sit as the romantic moment takes shape. The to-be-weds can stand in front of a series of steps as a makeshift arbor frames them against natural light from tall windows behind. An architecturally stunning place, it manages to fuse creativity with minimalism. The Great Hall offers somewhere expansive to suit the reception. Measuring some 8,800 square feet, there is ample room for many invitees to gather here. Indeed, capacity depends on the layout chosen. Up to 600 people may be seated in banquet style, while approximately 900 invitees can enjoy the surroundings when arranged for a mingling reception. Tables and chairs can easily be arranged for the meal as everyone reclines into luxury in this well-lit space. Elsewhere, the Gallery & Patio is available for those planning celebrations of approximately 200 people. Boasting almost 4,800 square feet, this illuminated and chic space would suit a seated dining experience before guests enjoy beverages from the bar beneath the stars. The Rooftop Garden offers generous mountain views, seating, and space to explore as the day progresses. Ideal for intimate gatherings, its capacity ranges between 100 and 150 guests.

    Major thumb's-up for AMS Catering and the Nest! They were the easiest and most helpful to deal with out of everyone associated with the wedding. Sterling Aurel even gave us great leads on vendors for flowers and the cake, tracked down the chocolate fountain my bride always wanted, etc. The food was fantastic -- I didn't get much, but everyone else raved about it. They handled a variety of dietary restrictions effortlessly, too. We were married in the Performance Theatre and had the reception in the Perch.
