A couple of weeks ago, we had the opportunity to work with some wonderful Cowichan Valley based wedding vendors to showcase one of Vancouver Island’s newest wedding and event venues, Keating Farm. This event was the second Planners’ Supper Club we have organized and, like the first one in April of 2019, we had the same goal of showcasing a venue and team of vendors to some of the island’s wedding planning teams.
This year has been tough on so many industries, including the wedding industry, and we know first hand what a ride it’s been for our fellow wedding planners so it was lovely to enjoy an evening where we could be together (at a distance, of course!) and have a little bit of fun!
The planning for this event began in March when our lead planner, Carley, went for her first site visit at Keating Farm. She immediately fell in love with the beautiful property and started working with Keating Farm owner, Rebecca, to plan this lovely evening to showcase the farm as well as some wonderful local vendors. Check out the fun below, which has been beautifully captured by our talented friend, Sabrina of Sabrina Patrice Photography.
We enjoyed a full tour of the property at the beginning of the night and heard about all the history and the work that went into restoring the house. Rebecca and George have put so much into making Keating Farm an incredible venue that we can’t wait to have the opportunity to work at!
As guests arrived they were welcomed with a glass of Valley Cider. After exploring the expansive property, everyone worked up an appetite so Farm’s Gate Food & Catering was there to treat us with beautifully crafted individual picnic boxes.
The night ended with gelato from Gondola Gelato Truck. Albi is the owner of the vintage Ford that he has transformed into a gelato truck! He makes all of his gelato by hand and takes his truck all over lower Vancouver Island, he can even stop by your event!
