Welcome to our wedding site! Here you should find all the details of our exciting event, found via the links on the green bar above. If you have any questions of course just let us know. Overall we are planning a very simple and laid-back casual event, but we will try to put details here that will help you plan a fun trip.
When: That’s easy – Saturday April 21, 2012. Some guests are coming out just for the weekend, but many are staying for a few extra days or a week to relax, enjoy the area, and hang out with us!
Accommodations: Black Rock Resort is a brand new and absolutely gorgeous resort built right on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is surrounded by rainforest, and overhangs rocky Pacific shoreline and crashing waves. The place is a work of art and we love the contrast of luxury accommodations in a rugged natural setting.
To make the weekend simple, the wedding, reception, accomodations, etc. are all in this one location. We are happy to be getting a great event rate there, so you can enjoy the luxury at an affordable price. Some guests are planning to stay at Black Rock Resort, others have found great sounding accommodations nearby. We have heard that Black Rock is starting to fill up and run out of certain room types; so book there right away or check the bottom of our accommodations page for more great options.
The Event: You can expect a short simple Ceremony on Saturday afternoon. Black Rock Resort has an amazing deck overhanging the ocean, and a gorgeous wine room with great ocean views as well. We will be in one of those spots for the short ceremony. Dress will be semi-formal so no need for fancy dresses or suits. Following that will be a very short break where you can relax in your room, explore the resort, etc. Reception dinner will be prepared by the talented on-site chefs and will be a buffet style served in the main ballroom. We are planning some more fun activities for the rest of the weekend, or you can easily fill your time on-site (hiking! spa!) or with the endless nearby attractions.
Location: The resort is in Ucluelet BC, less than an hour south of the popular surf/beach destination of Tofino. Ucluelet is primarily a quiet fishing town but has plenty of good places to eat, stay, and explore. There are many ways to get to the area, see the Getting There page for that.
Activities: Black Rock Resort is right on the Wild Pacific Trail, a beautiful and easy hiking trail and main Ucluelet attraction. We feel everyone should make the 45 minute drive north to Tofino as well- the town is beautiful and you could spend days just visiting all the roadside attractions on the way. The huge beaches, stunning rainforest walks, and amazing restaurants are just the beginning. See our attractions page.
We can’t wait to see everyone in April, and hope you are as excited as we are to spend some time on Canada’s beautiful Pacific coast.
