Located in Alberta, Canada, a wedding in Banff often is on the banks of a turquoise lake surrounded by glacier-clad peaks, blooming wildflowers and a crisp blue sky.

The combination of dramatic and unparalleled scenery, fine cuisine, romantic and luxurious accommodations and extraordinary venues can make your mountain wedding so spectacular, your guests will be raving about it for years to come.

What We Love

The ceremony and reception options are endless: tie the knot at the top of a ski hill, under a gazebo by a flowing river, in a heritage mountain cabin or on a dock by a mountain lake.

What to Know

Banff takes environmental stewardship very seriously, and they do not permit bottled water at their national park events.

Canada’s policies for visitors are strict, so make sure you consider your guests prior to booking a wedding in our northern neighbor.
