I am so happy we had our Wedding at the Vancouver Rowing Club (VRC). It was a beautiful venue and a perfect location. We had both the Ceremony and Reception at the VRC. We had about 136 guests and it was a perfect fit. Lindsay and her team and Nicole from Emelles Catering were amazing to work with. They went over and above on the day of and during the planning, they answered all my emails and questions. Trust me I had lots of questions. They were accommodating and you could tell that they have experience working with Brides. We went back and forth with the menu and decoration options and both Lindsay and Nicole worked with me through it all. They were professional and easy going from the start. All the staff were friendly and fun and I would work with them again in a heartbeat. I would definitely recommend the Vancouver Rowing Club.

tVancouver Rowing Club was the perfect venue for us! We wanted our guests from all over the world to really experience Vancouver for what it is, with Stanley Park on one side, the water and skyline on the other side, right on the water, with mountains in the background. It didn't hurt that we picked a fireworks night for our wedding, and yes, you can see the top half of the English Bay fireworks, and our guests were properly wowed!

Our ceremony outside was gorgeous, warm, close to nature, close to the city, just like we wanted it to be. The reception was flawless, plenty of space for our DJ, entertainment on the stage, a swelteringly hot day meant the patio was used lots throughout the night, with big fans cooling down the inside. Ice water at the bar was such a life saver!

Lindsay responded to every email as soon as she got them, follow up was thorough and she always had suggestions to how our requests could be solved. I would be thrilled to attend more weddings at the beautiful Rowing Club!

What a great venue! Very unique with a ton of charm and character, plus amazing views to the city over the water. They re-did the decking which was perfect for our ceremony, and the outside terrace was such a hit on a warm summers night. Lindsey the event manager there is awesome to deal with. She was very flexible and accommodated all of our requests, even the unusual ones. The room looked stunning as well...

We recently had our wedding reception there. I would probably choose a different location if I were to do it over again.
Pros: nice looking venue. Use of the deck which is pretty with the city as a backdrop. Great photo opportunities.
Cons: spoke with 4 different people in an 8 month period. They seemed to have poor communication between new and old staff. Some things we spoke about with the previous event planner was never passed on to the new event planners. So lots of miscommunication. You have to pay extra if you don't like their caterer and want to use someone else even though their caterer is overpriced!! With a caterer of our choice and the extra charge added, it was still cheaper than going with their in-house catering company!!
All in all, nice location. Nice looking venue. Staff aren't very organized. I would pick another spot just to not have the small headaches.
