Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
The New York Times said this about Vancouver:
“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.”
Vancouver is one of world’s most spectacular cities and consistently voted one of the most liveable cities in the world. Located in the most western province in Canada, Vancouver is the third largest city Canada behind Toronto and Montreal.

My Favorite Properties
Grouse Mountain is one of the North Shore Mountains of the Pacific Ranges. It was named by a visiting hiking party in 1894, after they encountered a blue grouse bird on the alpine slopes. Today, from sophisticated entertainment to unspoiled nature, Grouse Mountain is the best all-in-one, four season wedding destination. This wilderness paradise is located only 15-minutes from downtown Vancouver, and the famous Grouse Mountain Skyride (North America’s largest aerial tram system) takes you on a one-mile aerial journey to the Alpine Station, 3,700 feet above sea level.
Imagine your special day starts with your grand entrance via a helicopter onto the beautiful mountaintop. Your wedding backdrop is the breathtaking panoramic views of the city, sea and surrounding mountains unfold, culminating with a summit altitude of 4,100 feet. You and your guests dine at an exceptional at the crown jewel of the resort’s award-wining restaurant collection high above the city. Your culinary team utilizes the finest regional produce, crafting dishes that showcase the best of BC while minimizing its environmental footprint.
Grouse Mountain has all the amenities you need for your wedding. It can even cater to your pre-wedding activities like bachelor or bachelorette parties. In the summer, the mountain features Skyride, zipline, hiking, paragliding, ecotours and a wildlife refuge. In the winter, it provides an excellent place to enjoy a winter wonder land. It is equipped with theatres, chairlifts and an ice rink to enjoy countless activities such as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sleigh rides and sno-limo.
What is love, but an emotion,
So strong and so pure,
What is love, but a force
To bring the mighty low,
What is love, but a triumph,
A glorious goal attained,
So tell it on the mountaintops,
In all places high and low,
That love is the reason to be,
And will never break or bow.
- Matt Dubois -
So tell it on the mountaintops of GROUSE, tie the knot or renew your love on the Peak of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. On your special day, overlook the glittering city lights and twinkling of the ocean, the world is at your feet.
