Vendor Spotlight ~ La Punta Norte, Summerland, BC / by Alana Moran

Looking for a fabulous wedding venue in the Okanagan?  Look no further….La Punta Norte is just what you need!

I connected with Colleen from La Punta Norte about doing this vendor spotlight and she was so gracious!  

What can you tell people about La Punta Norte Guest Inn?  It is a very unique place.  We have 6 Guest Rooms and 1 Suite.  All of our rooms and the Suite have their own private hot tub on their own private deck overlooking beautiful Lake Okanagan.  We serve a full sit down gourmet breakfast in the morning.  There is a Barbecue patio where guests can relax and prepare their own lunch or evening meal and enjoy each others company.

How did you get started in the wedding business?  The wedding business got started when my niece asked if she could get married here.  This was before we had the Event Center.  After doing that wedding we realized that this is something we could add on our business plan and it just mushroomed from there.

How many weddings do you host and what would you tell a prospective client ?  We do about 30 weddings a year from May to September each year.  We are a popular venue for many reasons.  The price is right :) and you can bring in your own alcohol as long as you have a Special Occasion License.  The view is STUNNING.  We go beyond to make sure the wedding day is all that a client hopes for and more.  Our venue is quite different than the traditional venues as we are indoor/outdoor.  We have a beautiful Gazebo with amazing views for the ceremony and can host about 100 people for weddings.

Why do you like to host weddings?  Hosting weddings is fun.  You get to be part of the exciting adventure from engagement to vows.  We like helping brides with their decisions.  It is step by step planning and we like to be part of that for each of our couples.  

What advice would you give couples?  Communication is key to a long lasting relationship!

Anything else you want to share?  We book up quickly so we suggest that reservations for the B&B or for Weddings should be done at least a year in advance….especially for Saturdays as they go quickly.  We enjoy meeting people.  We have clients that come back year after year and we feel like we are welcoming friends back each time.
