Cedar Haven is a new wedding venue in East Sooke, Vancouver Island, Canada. 2017 was our first full year of magical weddings in the woods! Built with love by the family who has lived here for the past 16 years.  Sarah and Bruce the owners of the property had their wedding here in 2000 so they are thrilled other people want to do the same. Cedar Haven was a vision born from a styled wedding shoot. We thought wow other people might really love to get married here. The beautiful rain forest setting gives off some major twilight vibes.. OR game of thrones... OR fern-gully.. Which ever you think suits it best. Turns out its perfect and everyone even the men are in love with this outdoor cathedral! The property has an tranquil feel and is the perfect place to feel connected to nature.

The ceremony site has accessible power for lights and sound equipment. You can dress it up or keep with the natural theme either way is gorgeous! Go totally glam or DIY; pinterest it up!  We will eventually offer packages with more amenities but are allowing for couples to rent a tent for a reception on the lawn facing the woods with an outdoor seating area in the back.

 

We just completed our bridal suite. A space for brides and bridesmaids to do final prep before walking down the isle! We also hope to one day be able to renovate to offer reception space. Until that time we are offering the lawn space for tent receptions. BYOT (bring your own tent)

We plan on growing year by year to make this a place you'll never forget.

We currently aren't offering planning services but can offer advise and contacts including decor and catering to make the day really stand out.

Close to the Sooke prestige hotel, the East Sooke community hall, Metchosin Community hall and other reception and lodging locations. Closely located to East Sooke park for other photography options and can also offer Photography services with Rivkah Photography.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Becca Carroll

The idea Woman/Photographer

Becca is a wedding photographer and lover of all things wedding. She grew up on the property and has used it for many photo shoots in the past many of which have been published. The idea to make the property a wedding venue came after noticing there was a call for this type of magical ceremony venue in the woods. The property has an amazing feel that makes everyone instantly comfortable and at peace and Becca feels like sharing this is the best option.

Sarah Balazs

The creative mind/ Gardening Guru.

Sarah is the owner and has been the main tender of the property over the years. Growing the love and the aesthetics of the land constantly. Recently retired she was excited to jump on board to be a part of making peoples most important day that much better. Out in the dirt clearing paths and ceremony site, pouring love into the project; she is excited to see what our clients for 2017 have in store for this magical land!

The Boys

The Braun/"Yes" men.

 

The boys agree, "Yes dear" , that this is a wonderful opportunity to have our property provide wonderful experiences to people all over. They help up with all the hard work and Bruce even offers traditional first nations sweats on the property so long as the fire ban isn't on. It is a beautiful healing ceremony and we can't wait to extend that to those who are interested. Usually healing sweats are on the new moon and full moon.
