BC Wedding Awards 2020 FinalistBC Wedding Award winner 2019Based on our previous wedding experiences, here is a suggested schedule of events for your special day:

The ceremony begins between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm, and is approximately 30 minutes in duration

The ceremony normally takes place on the main sundeck, with the ocean as your backdrop.

Wedding Reception at 3:30 or 4:00 pm until dinner service

The reception should start almost immediately after the completion of the ceremony. It can take place outdoors on our covered atrium, or on the lower sundeck. Sparkling wine, bar service, and tray passed hors-d’oeuvres can also begin.


The couple will typically have their wedding photos taken on the property. If your photographer is new to the Lodge, please have them conduct a site visit of the property to identify the best spots for your pictures.

Wedding Dinner at 6:00 – 9:00 pm

We ask that guests arrive promptly for the meal service to ensure the freshness and quality of the meal.

Cake Cutting

Once you have determined the schedule for your dinner service (speeches, toasts, and presentations) we can establish the best time for the cake-cutting ceremony.

Dessert & Coffee Service begins around 8:00 pm

Wedding cake and dessert servings, as well as coffee & tea.

Post Dinner Reception & Dance between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm
