As a sought-after wedding destination, the Okanagan is abounding with
beautiful venues. The toughest part is choosing! To help you decide, here are
a few reasons why Gallagher’s Canyon Golf Course should be on your radar
for your 2019 wedding.

1. The Price

Let’s be honest — weddings ain’t cheap. For most people, cost is an
important consideration when booking a venue, which is completely
understandable. Hosting your special day at one of the country’s best golf
courses may sound like a bank-breaker, but Gallagher’s actually offers some
of the lowest rates in Kelowna for a venue of its quality. Check out their
wedding package for full details of services and pricing.


2. All-inclusive packages

Another honest fact about weddings: as amazing as they are, they can be pretty stressful. There’s a lot of coordinating that goes into a wedding, and the last thing you want is to be distracted by all the little details on your special day.

Gallagher’s Canyon’s experienced wedding coordinator will be there to take care of everything so that you can truly live in the moment. Not only can your entire wedding (including the ceremony, photos, cocktail hour and reception) be hosted in one convenient location, but everything else you need is provided. All you need to do is set up any special decorations you’d like, and have fun!

The day of the wedding isn’t the only time that Gallagher’s is ready to assist. They also offer planning services and consultation, vendor referrals and partner discounts, stag and stagette packages, family and friends golf discounts, rehearsal dinner packages and more.

3. The picture-perfect ceremony setting

If you’re looking for a classic Okanagan setting for your wedding, Gallagher’s is hard to beat. With a beautiful backdrop of the golf course and surrounding mountains, the ceremony site is the perfect place to recite your vows and take stunning photos.

The ceremony site is built on the precipice of the canyon, just off the ninth fairway of the golf course, making it very private and peaceful, far from any noise distractions. As a fun and unique added touch, guests are chauffeured to the site in white, six-seat golf carts.

4. A reception to remember

Once the ceremony is complete and the photos have been snapped, it’s time for everyone’s favourite part — the reception.

The Canyon Room at Gallagher’s accommodates up to 150 guests and includes tables and linens, serving staff and bartenders, set up and tear down, extra tables and more.

Your guests are sure to have a memorable time dancing the night away on the built-in 15 x 15 dance floor, enjoying beautiful views from the private patio and dining on delicious food. And, speaking of food…

5. Mouth-watering menus

Gallagher’s Canyon supplies all of the food and beverages for their weddings, except for the wedding cake. With lots of tasty, high-quality menu options, you can rest assured that your guests will stay happily full and ‘hydrated’ all night long.
