Tasha and Josh Cullen’s Wedding on the Beach
We love making it fun – and this was no exception, as we moved through the sandy beach and mild waters during our photo shoot.
If class and luxury is what you crave, then we recommend celebrating your day at Bear Mountain. The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa is located in sunny Victoria, the perfect backdrop for your wedding bliss.
A combination of secluded sumptuousness and the rural mountainside resort, Bear Mountain is undeniably built to balance everyone’s vision. The on-site staff assist with details and deliver incredible service, and all you need to think about are your upcoming nuptials. We, of course, will capture every second.
Staying here brings you luxury in the finest way possible. With no request too small (or, hopefully, too large!), the friendly and knowledgeable staff will take care of every detail with incredible service and what they call “exquisite west coast fare” (we call it insurmountable!) that is guaranteed to impress.
They offer options for every component of your wedding. The rehearsal dinner can be enjoyed in their private and intimate Wine Cellar, which seats up to 20 guests. Complimentary rehearsal space will be provided for your ceremony. For the ceremony, consider their outdoor Ceremony Circle, which overlooks the 18th fairway alongside some breathtaking views of Mount Baker. Up to 300 guests can be accommodated here, and you’ll also receive white wedding chairs, signing table, water station and use of the public announcement system.
Moving to the reception, Executive Chef Iain Rennie and his taste-bud-provoking culinary team will customize a menu that is unique to your tastes and sensitive to your budget. They offer a range of flavors and options, from plated dinners to big buffets to everything in between. Whether you are having fifty guests or three hundred, there are options for different venues around the resort. The ballrooms can fit up to 300 without the dance floor (260 with). Smaller weddings can choose from the salons, ranging from 60 to 200 guests. And intimate weddings may opt for the goldstream, perfect for 35 dancers or 50 who don’t want to kick up their heels.
Because of the popularity of the resort, it is important to book as soon as you have decided on a specific date and time. From there, you can begin to integrate all of the details of the day and ensure all of your requests are met. If you prefer to do menu tastings, they are available for plated menus, and you can finalize all decisions 30 days in advance.
Wedding specialists are personally there to meet all of your needs. They will guide you through the planning stages and menu selections, and a Banquet captain will be available for assistance with the ceremony and the reception.
The beauty of Bear Mountain should surely be enjoyed with others, and the resort generously offers guests in your group and attending the wedding a discounted rate for the duration of their stay, and room blocks are available. There are 156 beautiful guestrooms to choose from, each harbouring luxury at its best.
The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort & Spa, Victoria is an essential part of delivering that perfect setting your long awaited day. The combination of a rural mountainside resort with secluded luxury is in a class all its own, and nestled close to downtown Victoria, it makes for an amazing location.
