Wine, stunning views, outstanding photos… is there anything more beautiful than an Okanagan Valley winery? We may be bias because we live here, but we can’t think of a better place for two newlyweds to exchange their vows. Popular wedding venues like Mission Hill, Summerhill, and Burrowing Owl are all amazing and obviously make for stunning photos, but there are so many other vineyard locations throughout Kelowna, Penticton, Lake Country and more to hold your wedding reception. Here are five of our favourites.
Lang Vineyards – Naramata Bench, BC
The size of this boutique winery in Naramata Bench shouldn’t shy you away from booking them for your big day. Everyone wants beautiful wedding photos and the way this vineyard is laid out, the backdrop definitely won’t leave you feeling disappointed. Rolling vineyards, scenic views of Lake Okanagan below, and the Okanagan mountains above, Lang Vineyards is a perfect place to host your wedding reception and ceremony. Before or after the event, your guests are invited to book themselves in for a tour of the winery and also sip some of Lang Vineyard’s best wines.
See Ya Later Ranch – Okanagan Falls, BC
A wedding in wine country should be complete with top-notch views of the valley and that’s what you’ll get if you have your reception and ceremony at See Ya Later Ranch in Okanagan Falls. Situated high in the sky on their 100 acre vineyard, See Ya Later Ranch is an exemplary outdoor wedding venue in the Okanagan that provides wedding guests with views of Skaha Lake, Hawthorne Mountain, and the valley in general. Outside in their “Vineyard Marquee” they’re able to accommodate 100 guests, a lovely size for a romantic day of matrimony!
Poplar Grove Winery – Penticton, BC
Ready for the outdoor ceremony you’ve always dreamed of? In our opinion, Poplar Grove Winery is one of the best places to have a wedding in BC. Customize your wedding day guest list for a small wedding of 65 people all the way up to a larger guest list of 150 people – Poplar Grove will make it happen. Enjoy a decadent meal fully customized by you and chef Bruno and once your bellies are full, you and your closest friends and family can kick off your shoes and dance the night away. Poplar Grove makes wedding day dreams come true.
50th Parallel Estate Winery – Lake Country, BC
Wedding day packages at 50th Parallel Estate Winery are something special, especially since they have different areas of their vineyard to choose from to hold your reception. There’s just no other place like 50th Parallel! Choose from the vineyard infinity event pad, the winery crush pad, or the winery tank hall and no matter where you are within 50th Parallel Estate, their team can design your event for you and give you delicious dinner options from their own restaurant. On the 50th Parallel Estate Winery website, they say it best: “You and your guests will leave with Unparalleled memories that will last a lifetime.”
Off The Grid Organic Winery – West Kelowna, BC
This West Kelowna winery makes for a perfect place to exchange your vows! The organic vineyard overlooks Lake Okanagan below along with those exquisite mountain views that only Westbank can naturally provide. If you’re looking for an event venue that’s surrounded by 30 year old grape vines, rolling grass lawns, wine barrels, flower planters, and a wooden pergola, you’ve just scored the jackpot with Off The Grid. Any early guest arrivals are treated to a private wine tasting, so that’s an extra bonus when trying to figure out how to make your wedding day one your guests will never forget!
