Hotel Eldorado – http://www.hoteleldoradokelowna.com/
Over the years we’ve become quite familiar with the “El” having hosted countless weddings at their perfect location and for good reason. Here’s why we feel like the “El” is our second home:
The Eldorado has Kelowna’s only rooftop ceremony site with a panoramic view of the valley. Not only that but the hotel itself is situated on the water, giving you an up-close view of the famous Okanagan Lake. Watching the sunset over the Monashee Mountains while guests celebrate your love, is one you won’t ever forget. For those ladies that love high-heels we can all agree that having a ceremony with incredible views without the complications that come from walking on grass is definitely a bonus.
The reception space is full of natural, golden light creating a warm, inviting space that includes a covered, outdoor patio with the lake unfolding beneath you. This illuminating space creates a fun, romantic feeling that cannot be matched.
The hotel itself includes a marina, boardwalk, restaurant, bar, vintage pool, pet friendly rooms, vintage cars, easy accessible location, and complimentary valet parking. Need we say more?!
In our experience the Eldorado staff are always willing to assist you in anyway and they are great problem solvers. They are never hard to find, always welcoming and quick to answer questions.
If you’re looking for a smooth, convenient venue with spine-tingling views, on-site activities, food and more…then this is the one for you!!!
The Harvest Golf Club – http://www.harvestgolf.com/
This is a memorable venue, located on a championship-length golf course. Having experienced their incredible food, quality service and spectacular views we applaud any couple who chooses this venue to tie the knot.
The views never cease to amaze from any location on site. Beginning with your drive amongst the lush green golf course to the spectacular views from their reception site, to their on-site orchard, gorgeous pond and clear skyline overlooking the Okanagan lake & Valley.
Getting married on the impeccably maintained grounds of the Harvest, beneath a lovely arbour amongst your loved ones could not be anymore beautiful. The outdoor charming ceremony site and elegant reception space are situated beside a lovely pond where turtles can be seen basking in the Okanagan rays. The Harvest has unlimited views for incredible photo opportunities for your bridal party and guests. There’s no need to ever leave the site to achieve treasured imagery.
The Harvests’ welcoming demeanour and commitment to seeing your special day unveil smoothly is one to be praised. From the cart-boys helping hands to transport you to and from your location, to the caterers dedication to getting each meal right is unmatched.
On that note let’s talk about food. The catering at the Harvest is consistently delicious whether it be a vegan meal or the Prime Rib. The staff ensures they know who’s sitting where, that the meals are on time and that the tables are cleared and glasses are replenished frequently. Can’t ask for better service!
