We were looking for a venue for our wedding elopement ceremony with a handful of our family members. Bloedel was the perfect space that captured our love of natural surroundings, and felt like a “destination wedding” at home. We didn’t have to worry about the weather as we were inside the tropical dome and it would be beautiful and warm regardless. It was an amazing experience, the planning process went so smoothly and Lindsey and Maria were great at answering our questions so quickly. On the morning of everyone was so helpful and ensured everything went on time and as planned. Our photos will be apart of our most cherished memories. Thank you to the entire Bloedel team.
We had an intimate elopement at the conservatory. They were so amazing to work with. It was nice and warm in there thankfully because it was COLD when we got married. The flowers and birds was the perfect setting for having a tropical wedding in Canada!
What is your favorite part about a wedding? Seeing families and friends connect in our space while celebrating our client's special day is our favorite part about a wedding! At times, a wedding can feel like a reunion, where people who haven’t seen each other for some time come together to share in the joyous occasion. We love witnessing those heartfelt moments where people reconnect or form new connections for the first time.
