We live 15 minutes from the Fraser River Lodge!

We are fortunate to reside a mere 15 minutes from the enchanting Fraser River Lodge. Our journey to this idyllic location was a dream in the making. After capturing the beauty of several weddings at the lodge, we were inspired to seek a home near Harrison Lake. The allure of the deep woods and the mesmerizing view of the stars from the deck captured our hearts, and after two years of anticipation, we finally realized our dream. Now, as proud locals, we have found our forever home in this extraordinary area, and we are captivated by its unique charm and beauty.

It’s just an hour from Vancouver but feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere when you sit on their amazing patio and look at these beautiful sights.

With a beautiful view of Mount Cheam, this hillside venue has 18 acres for your event. You can even stay the night with accommodations on-site! The best part is that they’re fully licensed and have an upscale bar to entertain you all evening long.

Our top 5 reasons to have your wedding at this event space

  1. Can hold your entire event at the venue
  2. The best mountain (Mount Cheam) views
  3. Accommodations on-site
  4. 18 private riverfront acres

Where are some good places for my portraits?

  1. We always recommend some portraits on-site.
  2. Bridal falls if you don’t mind climbing a hill.
  3. Harrison lake for amazing lake and mountain views.
  4. Grass fields for the country style wedding photos.
  5. We also have a few secret areas.

We live only 15 minutes from the venue.

We had always dreamed of living in the deep woods, so after photographing a few weddings at Fraser River Lodge we started looking for property on Harrison Lake. We would sit on the deck and look up at all those stars and say “I could live here”. It took us two years to make it happen but eventually everything worked out just as planned! Now that we know this area well enough to call ourselves locals, I can’t imagine ever leaving – there’s nowhere else quite like home.

Get in touch!

One of the most important decisions you’ll make is where to have your wedding. Ideally, it’s somewhere with stunning views and a venue that can accommodate all your guests. The best mountain (Mount Cheam) views are at this location – so if you’re looking for something different but equally spectacular we’d love to start planning with you!

We never worried once

Where they really shine is the whole experience. They're ready for any weather, they are very thorough with wanting to understand what type of photos we want, they are good at following up, they are professional, they showed up on time, they made us feel relaxed during the whole day. Throughout the whole time of working with them, we never worried once.
