So we are finally getting married!

We are quite excited about the whole undertaking and looking forward to being surrounded by our friends and family when it happens.

Lauren and her sister found a fantastic location just outside Victoria in the new golf resort of Bear Mountain that is perfect! Called The Treehouse, it is a small and intimate two story building suspended on top of local timber and overlooking a gorgeous wooded valley.

The location is ideal for both the ceremony and the reception and both will be happening on site, regardless of weather. Should the somewhat tempermental Victoria weather behave, the ceremony will be outside.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!

....................... Matthew and Lauren

On our wedding day, October 11th 2008, we are planning to start the service at 3:30 PM - outdoor at The TreeHouse if the weather behaves, indoor if it does not.

After the secular service, we will be taking a break to have our picture taken a million times but inside The Treehouse, appetizers and beverages will be served. The evening will continue with food and drink offered throughout the night.

Come prepared to have a good time!

We will have a shuttle service from The Treehouse to downtown Victoria leaving an hour apart starting at approximately 10:15PM and running until 1:15AM.
Seating is limited (6 passengers per trip, so please let us know in advance or it will be first come / first serve the evening of.
We ask that people please leave a donation for the driver (suggested approximately $7/person)

If you are interested, we are registered at Home Outfitters(list available online here)
and in Powell River atCranberry Pottery. We are also registered at Williams-Sonoma (list only availablein store, sadly not online).

Although the Treehouse is a bit of a ways outside Victoria (approximately 30 minutes drive from dowtown), there are many options for accomodations.


There are many Travellers Inns in the Victoria area. This one(Travellers Inn - City Centre), is close by and reasonably priced.
A short walk away is the Westin Bear Mountain

This resort hotel / spa / golf course is a Five Star facility.


Many guesthouses are also available in the region (some as close as 8 minutes away!) and can fit most price ranges and specfic requirements (kids, pets, etc). Our lovely friend Charlotte has compiled a nice list which you can download here .

The day following the wedding, we will be at the father of the brides house for a gift opening / social gathering from noon until 4PM.

Feel free to drop by!

We will be serving a continental breakfast through the day so do please come by and visit, sit and chat, and enjoy a relaxed time.
