The “rustic chic” theme seems to be the new look for weddings in 2015. From lanterns and chalk boards to peonies wrapped in twigs, the DIY style is catching everyone’s eye. Personally, I love the idea of a wedding at a lakeside or a winery with a view, and B.C. has some of the best places to hold this type of event. For all those hoping to follow this simple but timeless trend I thought I would list some of our favourite venues from this past summer.
First on our list is Summerhill Pyramid Winery, our DJ’s often attend weddings here and have taken some amazing shots to prove it. This location is perfect for your rustic outdoor wedding its large outdoor space includes both a vineyard and heritage lawn as well as a veranda and banquet hall indoors. The oak wine barrels around the property help give it that old feel (the wine that comes from these doesn’t hurt either).
Bottega Farm Inn and Studio in Kelowna comes in second, it has both indoor and outdoor space that fits the rustic look perfectly. Large trees surround the property for those who wish to be outdoors, while inside lights are strung along the roof giving it a true fairytale feel.
Last, but definitely not least, for our Kelowna weddings is the Hotel Eldorado. This is another favourite amongst Airwaves customers and has accommodated our DJ’s many times. The indoor and outdoor space has an amazing view of the lake and can host your ceremony right on the boardwalk. This venue is for those who are leaning more towards a beachy rustic rather than the deep forest vibe.
Now for those of you in the Lower Mainland (don’t worry we haven’t forgotten you!), the Hart House Restaurant definitely needs to be on your list of places to consider. This Tudor-style mansion is located in Burnaby, B.C. The acreage surrounding the Hart House is located next to a lake, invoking a sense of romance similar to the famous Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling kiss scene in The Notebook. Need I say more?
