Best Day Of My Life - HUGE thanks to Bridges

Where do I even begin? Our overall experience with Bridges for the most special day of our lives was a 5/5. Not only was the staff friendly, prompt and extremely accommodating but the food was ... Read more absolutely incredible. We are still getting comments from family and friends on how amazing the food and service was. Our experience with Bridges events manager Kate was so much fun and very easy. She was able to help organize the flow of our day, ensuring that the food and drinks were circulating to our guests and that the experience was pleasant and enjoyable. She had some great recommendations on canapés and late night snacks that everyone ended up loving! Kate is honestly the sweetest and so determined to ensure that every aspect of your special day is perfect. My favourite part was that Bridges actually matches their flowers in the restaurant/bathrooms to the flowers used in your wedding! To all the couples that are considering Bridges for their Wedding Day... I would highly recommend booking with them. The view, the vibe and the overall energy of that place made our day so much more incredible.

Amazing Day!!

We rented the space upstairs for our wedding on August 12th and had over 100 guests. Everything was absolutely perfect! First of all, the space is spectacular, with floor-to-ceiling windows all over, ... Read more a huge patio with doors that open right up, and the best view in town, of the marina, the water and the city in the background. The food was amazing, which was extra surprising because with that many people it's hard to get the food perfect. Plus there were a number of people with special requests for vegan, gluten-free dishes. Everyone made a point of telling us how fantastic their meal was. The Bridges staff in charge of our event were spot on, from organizing the chairs for the ceremony, then moving everything back into place for dinner with no issues, serving dinner in a very organized, timely manner, the bartending, dessert service, snacks later on...all was executed perfectly. There was nothing we could complain about, and in fact we were blown away with the professionalism and organization. They made every effort to make sure that everything went according to plan and I could not have asked for anything more from them. Thank you to Kate, the event manager, and the other wonderful lady (who's name I can't remember...sorry!) who helped make the day so memorable and fun. I really recommend this place for anyone looking for a venue for their wedding!!

Perfect Venue!

We live in Toronto, but were getting married in Vancouver. Many of our guests were from out of town, and we wanted to make sure our wedding showed off the beauty of Vancouver. We wanted a venue that ... Read more we could hold both the ceremony and reception in, somewhere that was very "Vancouvery", and where it was easy for our guests to travel to from YVR. Bridges was perfect! They were very flexible with working with us and things that we wanted. We requested specific seating inside during ceremony, an oyster bar during cocktail reception, and other little details throughout the day. The communication throughout the process was quick and helpful, and everything turned out perfectly the day of. So many of our guests commented on how great the food, drinks and venue was. Definitely would recommend Bridges to anyone looking for the perfect Vancouver venue!
