We’ve booked the Dockside Lounge at the Granville Island Hotel for our wedding on October 1, 2011. If you’re visiting from out of town (or just want to spend the night at the hotel), we have a block of rooms reserved with a special rate. Contact the hotel at 1-800-663-1840 (+1 604-683-7373 if calling from outside Canada/USA) or email@example.com for details. We’ll keep updating this page with information as needed.
We’re registered at Provide for a set of Heath Ceramics and at The Bay for a few things. We’re already well established in our home and have most of what we need, but we’re visiting Australia for our honeymoon and welcome any contributions towards that adventure.
The Granville Island Hotel is located at 1253 Johnston Street, at the east end of Granville Island. The ceremony will start at 3:30 at Ron Basford Park next to the hotel, and the reception will follow at 5:30 in the Dockside Lounge inside the hotel.
