    A beautiful, mansion-style venue

    We really wanted to have our reception in an old mansion in Vancouver, but couldn't find one big enough for 125 guests. The VRC was a perfect blend of space and that old-fashioned style. It was a little tight for our size of wedding in the Harbour Room, but we made it work by renting the Trophy Lounge as well. The wrap-around deck overlooking the city was a perfect place for our guests to get some air too! We have no regrets about this beautiful venue for our big day.

    Perfect Venue

    Working with the staff, Carla and J.J., at the Vancouver Rowing Club to coordinate and plan our wedding was very easy due to their professionalism and friendliness. J.J., the bar manager, made sure that drink options were to our satisfaction and assembled an amazing staff for the day of our wedding. Communication with the events coordinator was very easy and they were able to answer any of our questions promptly. The venue itself is located in such a beautiful setting and provided us with wonderful city and park venues. We felt it was the perfect place for a Vancouver wedding and it made our wedding day even more special.

    Vancouver Rowing Club was absolutely amazing! We loved that it was right on the seawall and you get the perfect feel and view of Vancouver. Nicole, the event manager, was really responsive and flexible with our needs. This venue is kind of a bare basics type of deal? Just chairs and table ... and you can really jazz it up and make it your own or have it as is (which IMO is not as nice). But the options are all there! They make their money through their bar, so you have to do your drinks through them which is fair. And you have the option of open bar or cash bar, which is quite standard in Vancouver. I absolutely loved them and highly recommend it!

    I am so happy we had our Wedding at the Vancouver Rowing Club (VRC). It was a beautiful venue and a perfect location. We had both the Ceremony and Reception at the VRC. We had about 136 guests and it was a perfect fit. Lindsay and her team and Nicole from Emelles Catering were amazing to work with. They went over and above on the day of and during the planning, they answered all my emails and questions. Trust me I had lots of questions. They were accommodating and you could tell that they have experience working with Brides. We went back and forth with the menu and decoration options and both Lindsay and Nicole worked with me through it all. They were professional and easy going from the start. All the staff were friendly and fun and I would work with them again in a heartbeat. I would definitely recommend the Vancouver Rowing Club.

    tVancouver Rowing Club was the perfect venue for us! We wanted our guests from all over the world to really experience Vancouver for what it is, with Stanley Park on one side, the water and skyline on the other side, right on the water, with mountains in the background. It didn't hurt that we picked a fireworks night for our wedding, and yes, you can see the top half of the English Bay fireworks, and our guests were properly wowed!

    Our ceremony outside was gorgeous, warm, close to nature, close to the city, just like we wanted it to be. The reception was flawless, plenty of space for our DJ, entertainment on the stage, a swelteringly hot day meant the patio was used lots throughout the night, with big fans cooling down the inside. Ice water at the bar was such a life saver!

    Lindsay responded to every email as soon as she got them, follow up was thorough and she always had suggestions to how our requests could be solved. I would be thrilled to attend more weddings at the beautiful Rowing Club!
