If you’ve ever wanted to get married at a one-of-a-kind location that will absolutely wow your guests, there’s a place to do it—and it’s based at the Abbotsford International Airport. Airside Event Spaces was started by husband-and-wife team Kayla and Tylor English, who wanted to fill the need for unique venues in the Fraser Valley. This private airport hangar allows guests to dine with a gorgeous view of the mountain and an eclectic view of the airplane runways. Designed specifically with weddings in mind, the venue has catering and furniture teams as well as stellar audio, visual and lighting options. Composed of three hangar bays, the space is completely customizable to any size wedding.
But one of the coolest things about getting married here? A killer entrance. You can exit a private plane right on the tarmac, in view of your guests, for a spectacular drop-off like no other. “We’re happy to arrange charter flights to our guests, depending on availability,” says founder Kayla English. “Some guests bring their own planes, too!”
Besides having an epic airplane-themed wedding, you’ll be able to personalize your wedding to your heart’s desire. “While renovating the space, we wanted our guests to be able to bring their vision to life without having to work around patterned hotel carpet or covering up dull walls,” English explains. “Everything is white, modern and just ready to be added to and not covered up.”
