TOFINO BEACH WEDDINGS: Planning for the Best. Day. Ever.

When it comes to dream beach wedding settings, you could say Tofino and Pacific Sands specialize in dream fulfillment.

From beachfront accommodations, sandy shores, and non-stop waves in Cox Bay, to Pettinger Point and the majestic, meandering boardwalk beneath a towering tree canopy of ancient rainforest, Pacific Sands is a wildly romantic place to say ‘I do.’

As for the all-important details that make a destination wedding or elopement intimate, seamless, and stress-free, queue the planning professionals at Rare Earth Weddings & Events—our exclusive wedding planning partner—complete with your pick of packages.

“We’ve been organizing weddings at Pacific Sands for over 10 years,” declared Sheila Orchiston, owner at Rare Earth Weddings. “It’s such a magic setting; the perfect balance of raw and natural, yet so stunning.

“And there are so many outdoor backdrops to choose from to make it special, along with the onsite Rainforest Tent which is a spectacular place to have an indoor dinner or reception literally in the forest!

“Just like every couple is unique, so is every ceremony. We love creating customized nuptials, and are steadily booking through summer and fall of 2021, into 2022 and beyond.”
