    The View is the BEST!

    Stunning views, amazing staff, fantastic food, exceptional professionalism, and not enough wonderful adjectives to describe how the whole event turned out. Huge thank you to Allison for making it all so easy to organize, for providing support and ideas and doing so much of the planning on our behalf.

    Would do it all again in a heartbeat!

    Allison, The View and Forage Caterinf were wonderful! Allison was positive, helpful and generous with her time. She was very responsive during the planning process and always willing to help.
    In addition, during the set up and the event the entire Forage Catering team was fantastic. All of the staff truly went above and beyond. Everyone seemed to really care about the event, was professional, kind, helpful and friendly. The venue is great, the food was amazing, the crew was awesome and we could not have asked for anything different for our wedding. Highly recommended!!

    I loved our wedding at the View. We had our ceremony on the patio overlooking the city of Vancouver and the reception inside. The View really does live up to it's name. They were great with letting up set up the day before and picking items up in the loading bay at a later day after the wedding.
