It’s bound to be one of the most memorable moments of your life. So where will you choose to pop the question? It’s easy to dream big: you’ll flash the ring while skydiving over the Spanish countryside; you’ll get down on one knee during an NHL game and have it broadcast on the jumbotron; you’ll rent a massive billboard along your girlfriend’s route to work and plaster your proposal on it.

Better to keep it simple and classy, we say. Pick a beautiful backdrop, plan something special for just the two of you and make sure you have plenty of time to relish your excitement. Here at Summerland Waterfront Resort, we’re host to countless couples who walk in as lovers and leave as fiancées—after all, this is one of the Okanagan’s most magical and romantic places to propose.

Step one: book your suite. Our lakeview suites overlook a vista of Lake Okanagan that’s (almost) as beautiful as the one you’ll share it with. You and your special someone can toast the occasion with a glass of local wine on your private balcony, followed by a vinotherapy massage at our day spa and a gourmet meal at our onsite Local Lounge • Grille.
Step two: plan your itinerary. The fall and winter seasons are, arguably, Summerland’s most romantic. The tourist crowds have thinned out and it’s a quieter, more cozy town, with a quaint charm that suits the holidays perfectly. Local wineries (of which there are dozens) offer off-season tours, and let you stroll through their vineyards.

Nov 29 & 30 is an especially fitting weekend to visit, when the Summerland Light Up the Vines event adds an even more romantic glow to the city, and features special opportunities for shopping, entertainment and, of course, wine tours and tastings. 
The proposal is just the beginning, and with so much to come, we’d love to be a part of it all. Host your wedding ceremony with us, and create more cherished memories by returning for your anniversaries. There’s no better destination to have as your special place than Summerland, BC.
There’s a reason that the Okanagan is one of BC’s most popular destinations for weddings. From photographers to florists, the valley is home to a wide variety of special event professionals who work to make these very special occasions unforgettable for everyone in attendance.
On Saturday, April 5 from 10am to 3pm, Summerland Waterfront Resort is pleased to host the Summerland Wedding Affair, a special gala event showcasing the Okanagan’s top wedding experts and suppliers.
All are welcome at this intimate and informative gala, which offers a rare opportunity to speak in-depth with local wedding professionals. You will be able to discuss options, amenities, products, services, availability and pricing and even book, all in the intimate environment of our ballroom which will be set up in gala wedding style to suit the mood. 
Attendees include caterers, florists, photographers, hair and makeup artists, party rental companies and wedding planners.
Enjoy fantastic wine and cuisine while you chat and browse. The event will be catered by our very own Local Lounge • Grille with wine provided by Okanagan Crush Pad Winery and Sumac Ridge Estate Winery.
The Summerland Waterfront Resort is located at 13011 Lakeshore Drive on the scenic shores of Lake Okanagan, a magical setting for your special day. We specialize in all-inclusive wedding celebrations for as up to 120 guests, with two outdoor ceremony locations, including our exclusive beachfront. Wedding guests enjoy luxurious accommodation in our condo style suites, which feature full kitchens, breathtaking views and more. Guests enjoy onsite boat rentals, pool and hot tub, day spa and award-winning onsite restaurant.

Summer, Weddings
Take a minute to picture this: azure skies, golden sand, white lace blowing softly in the ocean breeze. A sun-kissed bride and groom embrace as gentle waves lap at their feet. It sounds like the picture perfect wedding ceremony, the stuff of magazines and daydreams. It also sounds like something destined for a tropical locale far from our rugged northern climes. But, in fact, here on Lake Okanagan in Summerland, BC, our beaches are just as idyllic, just as breathtaking, and just as magical as the ones you’ll find down south. At the Summerland Waterfront Resort and Spa, we can help you plan a beachfront Okanagan wedding that will be as gorgeous as anything your imagination can create—without the hefty travel expenses.
