Stunning Kelowna Wedding Venues

The four-season beauty and tranquility of Kelowna provide an unforgettable backdrop any time of year for your wedding at The Cove Lakeside Resort. Overlooking Okanagan Lake, framed by landscaped gardens and mountain views, we provide an Okanagan Valley wedding venue unlike any other in British Columbia. During the spring and summer, views of the sparkling lake at sunset inspire gatherings large and small. Fall brings an orchestra of color to the trees surrounding the resort.

Breathtaking Beach Front Resort
My husband and I wanted to get married on a beach, preferably in Mexico or something to that liking. However, some family health issues had us reconsider travelling outside of Canada and took us to find a beach front venue in the Okanagan instead. The pictures of The Cove Lakeside Resort do not do the property justice. We got married on the Beach, had cocktails on the Gellatly Terrace, and dinner in the Grand Reserve Room. It was everything we could have asked for and more! From the waves in the background while we said our I do's on the beach, to taking our bridal party photos on the property and next door at the Gellatly Nut Farm (GREAT place to take pictures), and ending the evening in the Grand Reserve Room, it was the perfect venue. As every wedding does, there were a few hiccups along the way, but Terry Pritchett, The Cove's wedding coordinator was absolutely FANTASTIC! With the exception of a Day of Coordinator, I planned my own wedding. I am thankful he was he was quick to respond, courteous and always made time to answer any questions I had. Both Patrick & Elizabeth were also extremely helpful the day prior during our rehearsal & the day of. My only word of advice for future brides - if your guest list is upwards of 95/100 guests, know that the Grand Reserve room is a "cozy" room - we had 95 guests, and it was great for dinner and speeches, but come dance time, we asked The Cove to put away 2 tables so we had extra room to tear up the dance floor. But all in all, I am so happy we picked The Cove for our special day and thank everyone who made our dream come true :)

We hosted our reception here at the Cove. Terry Pritchett was so so helpful. He was very responsive and very accommodating to what we wanted. He gave us a great deal. We had a lot of our guests stay at the hotel for a discount and everyone felt spoiled during their stay. The grand room was transformed with stringed lighting (we put up ourselves), long tables with greenery and candles everywhere. Our wedding was 110 and it fit everyone perfectly and felt so cozy. Food was amazing. I have no regrets about our decision!!! I just wish I could relive the day!
Amazing place to have our wedding!
I was married at The Cove on June 28th 2018, it was an amazing place to have our wedding! From the beginning, the coordinator we talked to, Terry was very efficient, he always made sure to get back to me right away with any question or request. On the day of our wedding, everything went smoothly and as planned. Our bridal party stayed in 2 rooms the night before the wedding and the rooms were fantastic! Lots of space to get ready for your wedding or finish up last minute prep. We had 4 of us girls, a makeup artist and hair dresser and family coming in and out of the room and there was plenty of space. The staff were amazing, they called our room to make sure everything was good and also held doors for us while I entered the garden to be married and I heard many words of congratulations from staff as well. The food was out of this world, local and so fresh! All our guests were raving about the food the next day and about the whole experience! I would recommend The Cove to anyone looking for a great venue where you can have your ceremony, reception and a place for your guests to stay!
Our wedding experience at The Cove was flawless. So glad we chose this location, our memories are priceless and we still crave the excellent food that they served! What a great team of people at The Cove.
