How did your company get started? How did you get into your field of expertise?
At The Butchart Gardens we are most passionate about creating the perfect experience for our visitors. Whether it is a walk through The Gardens, or a wedding celebration, we want to ensure that the experience is enjoyable and memorable for everyone.
What are you most passionate about professionally?
What most excites you about your business & the contribution you can make?
The Butchart Gardens has been operational for over 100 years, however we only began welcoming weddings in 2008. After many requests, we evaluated how we could offer the best possible experience for a bride and groom which is why our Wedding Season of January 15 through March 31 each year was chosen. It is the only time of year where we can close one of our gardens and offer it exclusively to a bride, groom, and their guests.
What makes your business unique?
When it comes to weddings, our most unique feature is our Spring Prelude indoor garden. This garden is built from scratch each year in 8 days, and provides a beautiful weather-proof location for ceremonies and standing receptions. It is kept fresh and in bloom through out our Wedding Season so that we always have a vibrant garden ready for our couples to say 'I do" - no matter what the weather is doing outside!
