If a beautiful lakeside location is high on your priority list, you may want to consider Hart House in Burnaby. 

Great Venue Options
One thing you might love about this venue is your many location options. There are spaces for large parties as well as places for much smaller groups. 

The Tent
This option is available mid-May through the first weekend in October. Weddings take place on the lawn and are moved into the reception space during bad weather. With a large dance floor and draped ceilings with chandeliers, this is a great space for a warm weather reception. Heaters are also included for those days when the weather is a bit cooler. The Tent option is perfect for groups of up to 200 people.

The Lawn
If you want an outdoor wedding or reception, The Lawn is your perfect option. Large tables and chairs can be set-up for a sit-down meal. Your guests can enjoy the beautiful trees and natural beauty of the outdoors. Plus, this option is sure to provide excellent wedding photos.

The Restaurant
The main dining room of the Hart House Restaurant can be rented out for your wedding celebration. You will have the entire dining room exclusively for your group. With room for up to 80 guests seated and 100 reception-style, this is a great option year-round. The restaurant's four fireplaces are sure to add a fun touch to your wedding and keep your guests warm when the weather is colder. During the summer months, rental of the restaurant includes access to a gorgeous patio.  

The Rosedale Room
If your group is a little smaller, the Rosedale Room might be your perfect option. The windows overlook Deer Lake and the gorgeous fireplace is sure to keep your guests happy and warm, even if you get married in the winter. Using round tables, it can accommodate up to 64 people. With rectangular tables, it can seat up to 80 people.

The Lakeside Cottage

Of course, some couples just want a small, intimate ceremony. If that is the case for you, the Lakeside Cottage is a wonderful option. Located just a short distance from the main restaurant, the cottage also has a fireplace. It is perfect for groups of 10-32 people. Rental of the Lakeside Cottage also includes the use of the lawn for a reception.

While you can get married here year-round, summer is probably your best option. You can use both the indoor and outdoor space, and the weather is more likely to be nice. Of course, wind, rain, and other weather conditions can happen any time of year. If you are planning on having your wedding or reception on the lawn, be ready with a backup plan.
