I really wanted a venue where we could have the ceremony and reception in the same place without the staff having to flip the room. The DAC is perfect for that. It has a beautiful rustic feel with log beams and stone fireplaces and full window views out over the mountain and water.
The food and service were amazing and we were able to do plated dinner and ice cream sundae bar for dessert. I recommend the late night pizza it was delicious and gobbled up quickly.
We covered beer and wine for guests and some champagne as they arrived and guests could purchase anything else they wanted instead.
Vivian and her team were amazing to work with and I am so glad we picked the DAC for our special day.

I absolutely LOVED having our wedding at the SFU Diamond Alumni Centre. The coordinator, Vivian, made our experience absolutely amazing! She always responded to emails super fast, and answered all questions and concerns in a timely manner. She was super flexible with us when it came to when we could come in and set up for the event, etc. Several times we went up there for lunches and visits with family, friends, and vendors, and were always welcomed and remembered! We really felt at home when we visited, and we are super sad that the whole experience is over!! Well we didn't get to sample the food before, it didn't matter. EVERY guest said that the food was phenomenal, and we were so thrilled! The salmon and tortellini especially was mouthwatering! There isn't a bad thing I could say about this venue :) The dinner plates were a tad pricey, but you have to pay for quality, and that's what we got! Vivian was also super flexible allowing us to change some things up from the standard menu. We were also able to choose between cash bar, host bar, or toonie bar. We ended up choosing cash bar for our cocktail hour, dinner wine served to the tables, and toonie bar once the reception started! Thank you for hosting our wedding! We will never forget it! xoxo

They are super flexible and open to however you want your event to work out.

The menu options were vast and we were able to make the menu that we wanted. The food was AWESOME, had nothing but complements from all of our guests.

The bar offerings were very flexible, we did a capped open bar that would turn to cash and were able to specify which items were included and which weren't. We also had the option to do toonie/tickets ...basically whatever you want!
Quick to respond with any questions, beautiful views, beautiful scenery, linens and table settings included. One-stop shop!

My only complaint was a lack of air conditioning, they had ceiling fans but they didn't do anything. It was 30C and we had to supply our own fans to help keep the venue cool, which wasn't a problem just make sure you plan accordingly.

We loved this venue for our recent winter wedding. It's got a west coast/ cabin vibe going. The rental rates are very reasonable and the food was a big hit with the guests! The people are a pleasure to work with; they are very available by phone and email and seemed really into working with us to achieve the wedding of our dreams.

Being an SFU Alumni, I had attended other types of receptions at the Diamond Alumni Centre. When it came time to pick a venue, the DAC was our first choice. We were looking for a convenient, intimate setting for our friends and family with the reception immediately following the ceremony. Vivian, the banquet manager was such a pleasure to work with. She had some great wedding vendor recommendations and was able to help accommodate a few specific menu requests. We received many comments about the food being great (we opted for the beef carving station and westcoast seafood cascade add-ons). The staff at the DAC were professional and did a great job!

We loved the location of SFU - it felt remote, with amazing views, but was still accessible. The food was incredible, and was complimented by many of our guests.

The price was also incredible. We were able to use the alumni # of a friend, which offered a hefty discount.

We did our photos around SFU first, then had the ceremony in the room downstairs, then headed upstairs for cocktails and reception. Our guests really appreciated not having to wait around for hours in between.

The coordinator, Vivian, was excellent. She was easy to work with and really provided peace of mind, which is priceless while wedding planning!
