9 Beautiful Summer Wedding Venues in and Around Vancouver

Science World’s Green Roof Terrace and Patio

Location: Vancouver
Capacity: 180 ceremony; 160 reception
Minimum Spend: From $7,300

Raise a glass to your romantic chemistry at Science World! While the venue offers multiple event spaces, we love the Green Roof Terrace for a summer wedding. Enjoy panoramic views of False Creek (and the lights on the “golf ball” dome once the sun starts to set) as you mingle in the shady comfort of a tented area that can accommodate almost the entire maximum capacity of the venue. scienceworld.ca
