Weddings in Banff and Lake Louise

The evening sun shone out from behind the mountain peaks, bathing the procession in glorious golden light. As a quartet of violins began playing, the guests who had gathered on the shores of the turquoise lake fell silent. You began to walk down the aisle as if in a dream – elated to be in the presence of your friends and family in the most beautiful setting imaginable to marry the love of your life. 

In Banff and Lake Louise you can exchange vows and celebrate your nuptials on the shores of an emerald green lake, on top of a mountain at sunset, or in a luxury fairy-tale castle by a frozen lake. The dramatic scenery, romantic accommodations, fine cuisine, and stunning venues make Banff and Lake Louise one of the most magical wedding destinations in the world.
