Wedding Reception Venues

Eldorado Great Room and Lake View Terrace Bar

We love weddings so much we decided to expand our second floor banquet space in 2011 to create the ultimate wedding reception venue. Anything but a boring ballroom, the Great Room is a unique event space seating up to 150 guests with floor to ceiling windows, cork flooring perfect for dancing the night away and drop down LCD projector to show off your fave photos. The adjoining Lake View Terrace Bar is perfect for pre-reception mingling and can be set up to feature personalized “Mr.” and “Mrs.” wedding bevies for you and your guests!


Lakeside Sunroom and Terrace

Classically styled just above water’s edge, the main floor Lakeside Sunroom is a bright and beautiful banquet space accommodating up to 100 guests. This private space features original hardwood floors and an array of retractable glass doors that open directly onto an adjoining 720 square foot covered terrace. Whether your preference is buffet style or a gourmet plated dinner, the Sunroom easily lends itself to both. Sure to be a wedding to remember, guests will enjoy dancing lakeside in the Sunroom watching the sun set over Okanagan Lake!

Wedding Ceremony Venues

Sun Roof

This new ceremony venue is unlike any other in Kelowna and will literally take your breath away. “I Do’s” become more magical with Okanagan Lake as your backdrop and wedding pictures will be transformed with sweeping 360 degree Valley views. The Eldorado outdoor Sun Roof can host up to 150 of your closest friends and family and will definitely be the wedding they always remember!

Couples at the El

Meghan & John Adcock, May 30, 2015

The Hotel Eldorado was an absolutely amazing place to host our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our selection. Everything went off without a hitch and the hotel worked perfectly with our Day of Coordinator, Peace of Mind Weddings. The Staff were all friendly and professional, even the hotel/restaurant staff that were not actually part of the wedding. We enjoyed the cocktail hour on the roof, everyone was happy with the selection of alcohol available and it was a great setting, following our ceremony. The food was excellent, we've had nothing but compliments since our wedding day. We would definitely recommend The Hotel Eldorado to anyone we know that is hosting an event.

Adrianne & Devon Jorgenson, July 31, 2015

Thank you so much! We heard nothing but wonderful things from all of our guests, parents, and wedding party; food and beverage was fantastic, service was above and beyond, and everyone loved the vintage ambience that the El has to offer. Devon and I also want to say a big thank you - every part of planning was made to be so special, and everything was so timely and easy! We have been non-stop reminiscing about our wedding day and stay at the El… and are already planning our next visit! Good luck to you with the rest of your wedding season – I’m sure that every single wedding will be as wonderful to the bride and groom as ours was to us! Many, many thanks!


Lindsay & Jeff O'Brien, September 18, 2014

I would like to thank everyone from the EL and weddings team that took part to make our day so absolutely incredible. I would like to thank you, Lindsay, especially for making this day go off without a hitch and far exceeding my expectations. I cant express how unbelievably impressed and thankful I am for you and your team. You helped make our wedding day spectacular. I would like to thank you for being so patient and accommodating to us as an entire family, not just myself and Jeff. I was blown away but the service at the reception. I was so impressed with how efficient and timely it was. I wanted to thank Brent for making everything run so smoothly and staying in constant contact with us to ensure that everything was running according to plan. The food and wine was amazing. I also wanted to point out how great the cleanup staff was at the end of the evening. My mom was so impressed with how helpful they were. They made everything run so smooth and quick. I have nothing but positive things to say about the entire experience. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was, how great the service was and how accommodating the staff was to everyone. Everyone had such an amazing time - we can’t stop reminiscing on the day’s events.  I cant thank you enough for making our day as amazing as it was. I was told a number of times to expect hiccups, mistakes and set backs on our big day - I did not experience any. It was perfect. I hope to be back visiting you guys again in the future. Thank you for everything. 


Chantelle & Derek Brown, September 4, 2015

Thank you!! Honestly,  you guys were so great. I don't have a single thing that I would change. You all made the event so seamless and memorable.  Everyone loved the food. Thank you again.”




Stephanie & Sean Schwemler, May 24, 2014

The Hotel Eldorado really made our wedding day as perfect as it could be. Leona and the wedding coordinators did everything they could to make our vision a reality. During the planning process, they were quick to respond to all of my emails and every question was answered immediately. On my wedding day, the staff at the El made sure that I had nothing to do but simply enjoy my day. The food was absolutely amazing and the venue was beautiful, and the staff attentive and incredibly friendly. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was and how helpful all of the staff was. My wedding day went off without a hitch and I owe it all to the Hotel Eldorado. Thank you all so much!!


Tara & Bryan Dawley, August 16, 2014

Bryan and I cannot thank the Eldorado enough for hosting our wedding day! The entire team went above and BEYOND just being our venue and providing food & beverage services. You were very understanding and accommodating with any last minute changes and very organized which helped our wedding day be stress free. You even took the time to make Bryan and I feel special even though we know you are managing several weddings in one weekend and we really appreciated that. The Eldorado truly lives up to the level of expertise they are known for. Bryan and I will forever hold a special place in our hearts for you guys and we will be forever grateful!

Madison & Brenden Robinson, August 17, 2014

We had the most perfect day! Everything was amazing, the El was magnificent. Also thank you for the bottle of champagne in the room for us that was really sweet! We felt really taken care of from the first time we stepped foot on the property! The food also was amazing! All of our guests loved the meal and are still talking about how they had seconds and even third helpings!! It was really nice having the Banquet Staff serve me in the buffet, I was wondering how I was going to manage while holding my dress! And I really liked the mini-desserts they were perfect.
