Wescadia Tasting Event

We had our annual Wescadia Tasting Event for our lovely Cecil Green brides, grooms and family last weekend. We host these events so that couples can get an idea of what their wedding day could look and feel like here at Cecil Green Park House. Answers to questions such as “what do the chairs or tables look like?” or “how does the food taste?” or “how does parking work?” can be found and the real fun planning can begin!

Wescadia blew us all away with novel taste-tantalizing and visually appealing dishes. Credits to the new head chef who was the creative mastermind behind it all! Thanks to him, we now have bacon maple ice cream on the menu. That was a HUGE hit at the event, which comes as no surprise since it’s hard not to love bacon.

Our teams had a great time meeting and chatting with you over food and drink. We cannot wait to see your wedding plans come to life this year.

Major thanks to The Flower Factory for sponsoring all of the flowers and making our venue look absolutely divine. The tall pillars of peach roses and long garlands of deep green eucalyptus brought an air of elegance. Denise Lin Photography, thanks for capturing it all!

Rosa and Daniel

Rosa and Daniel had a warm, cheery winter wedding with us that was full of entertainment, laugh and love. Friends and family had games and presentations planned for the couple that were hilarious and put to the couple to the test!

Winter weddings just have a certain glow to them that I can’t quite put my finger on but Edward Lai definitely captured that on his camera.

Taryn and Brad

Words from the gorgeous bride:

“Brad and I fell in love with Cecil Green Park House as soon as we saw it. We knew that it was where we had to get married. We met at UBC and we wanted to get married at UBC, and this was the perfect spot on campus.

We went slightly non-traditional in terms of Cecil Green set up, and had the guests facing the house. Our processional came down the front steps so all the guest could see them in full view. I came out from the side of the garden a processed along the lawn – surprising everyone! Having the house to take photos in afterwards was amazing. We got some really special pictures with the character features in the house. The day was beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for more!”

Nicole and Egan

Nicole and Egan’s Paris themed wedding. It definitely had un air d’amour! Soft white and pink colours really set the elegant tone. I especially loved the billowy chuppah. For all you DIY brides out there, you can learn how to make one here.

Ariane and Henry

I can’t get enough of rose and gold themed weddings! The softness of the pink and the contrast of gold are the perfect complements to each other. Ariane and Henry had theirs beautifully decorated by Wedding Design Studio.

They chose to have their ceremony facing the west side of the pond for about 90 guests.

Baby’s breath should be bottled up and made into a perfume, don’t you think?
