For a smaller, more intimate gathering, the Okanagan Room, also in the same tasteful scheme, will accommodate a maximum of 120 guests. Both rooms show beautifully and will enhance in commemorating your wedding day.

Our complete Catering Package is available online or by request from Sales and Catering and we welcome your personal suggestions so that together we may coordinate your dinner , late night buffet or snack, and any other pre or post wedding functions you wish to organize.

For something unique, our Executive Chef will prepare Cheesecake Wedding Cakes with as many tiers as you wish presented in a simple elegance with your own fresh or silk flowers cascading from the tiers (charges apply). Our Catering Co-ordinator will be happy to discuss this or other options, please enquire directly for more information.
