We absolutely loved our time at Strathmere. We had our ceremony, reception and wedding night at the Inn. On a rainy day they flawlessly moved our ceremony inside and transitioned it back to the reception room. The Inn was the perfect location with a variety of rooms available for all guests to enjoy (ie. Games room, bar, lounge, patio, quite room with tables). The service was excellent, my husband and I never wanted for anything. Complimentary breakfast the next day was great- we only wish we could have slept in past 10am the next day!

Working with Strathmere was absolutely delightful. All our questions via e-mail were responded to within hours, our face-to-face meetings with a coordinator were always welcomed anytime we needed to 'review' the plan, many options were always provided with many possibilities. The hard part was for us to make decisions. Our coordinators often made suggestions, only when we asked, by giving us a sense of what has been successful in previous events. We never felt like our wedding needed to 'fit a mold' to Strathmere.

It is rare to experience an event venue with 'exquisite' food. Our quests are still commenting on the high caliber food and taste experience. " I could have just eaten the soup it was so good...I have never tasted salmon like that...delicious!" Strathmere offers amazing ambiance and food services.

And finally, we cannot thank the 'room reservations' office. With so many family/friends staying at Strathmere, we had some work to do in organizing room locations etc. Not too many hotels/venues work with you on this. We were toured through every option of accommodations provided so we could make some informed decisions.

My wife and I live in Vancouver but decided to get married at Strathmere as it is close to many of our family and friends. Things could have been extremely difficult trying to plan a wedding from across the country, but Strathmere made things easy. Their staff were very responsive and were willing to answer any questions we had when we first started planning. Anytime we needed to speak with someone, they were happy to work around the time difference. On the day of the wedding, the staff helped in ensuring things went smoothly. Our wedding coordinator, Linda did an amazing job making sure everything stayed on schedule and worked flawlessly with our other vendors. We decided on the buffet option. As we live in Vancouver, we didn't get a chance to go to the tasting session before the wedding. With buffets, you never know how food will taste. Us and our guests were blown away by the food. There was so much selection, and everything tasted amazing. Our guests kept telling us all night how incredible dinner was. Strathmere is a beautiful place and the staff are amazing. They know weddings and they do them well. We highly recommend Strathmere!
