Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can we do our wedding ceremony outdoor? 

Yes, you may do wedding ceremony outdoor if it does not rain or snow. Please note it rains more in Hatzic Island compared to other parts of Lower Mainland, and weather can be unpredictable. We ask you to decide if the ceremony will be held outdoor or indoor at least 7 days before the wedding. 

2. Can we do our wedding reception outdoor? 

Yes, you may if weather permits, until 10pm due to noise bylaws. There is $300 + tax for setting up and taking down the outdoor wedding white reception tent (10 x 20) decorated with lights, greeneries, and curtains. If due to the guest size, a second reception tent (10 x 10) can be added for the total of $400 + tax. The tent will be set up close to the side of the house (on the same side as the wooden gazebo) in order to allow easy access between the kitchen and the guests. Please let us know if you would like to add the white reception tent(s) at least 21 days before the wedding.
