It's the stuff bridal dreams are made of! Starting in July, 2020 brides and grooms can now tie the knot at breathtaking locations, many that have never been available before for wedding events. It's an especially thrilling opportunity for nature-loving couples heading to the altar.
Alberta regulations currently allow up to 15 people in indoor or outdoor gatherings. These unique ceremonies will be intimate and allow room for a couple’s closest relatives and friends.
Despite COVID-19 wedding setbacks earlier this year, there's not only hope, but excitement for those who still want to get hitched this season.
“We know many couples who were really disappointed when their hard work and dream wedding plans fell apart," says Megan Bowman, Regional Group and Event Manager. "By offering scenic venues that have previously never been available for weddings, we can now help create unique and truly special days for couples still looking to wed in 2020.”
Elopement packages are available and bookings for the summer and fall season are expected to fill up quickly.
The Banff Gondola features mountain-top views that will make for an unforgettable wedding backdrop. Having only been previously available in the winter, the summer offers extraordinary panoramic scenery. The Sky Bistro, Banff’s #1 restaurant, will provide a five star 3-course reception dinner and lunch (additional inclusion).
Get married atop emerald green water surrounded by coniferous pines and rocky shores at Banff's Lake Minnewanka. The nautical theme sets sail on one of our finest cruise boats that can comfortably host your wedding party, while voyaging you and your guests through stunning and serene landscapes.
