Vancouver Island Music Fest 2017

Vancouver Island Music Fest 2017 Another successful Vancouver Island Music Fest (VIMF) has come and gone.

There are a lot of music festivals out there so it’s no small feat for a festival to survive let alone thrive. People only have so much money and […]

If you’d like to find out more about our wedding packages, we’d love to hear […]
