For those who love the allure of the great outdoors, there’s no denying that the Canadian Rockies are an ideal place to spend one of the most memorable days of your life. Mountain weddings give couples the perfect backdrop to say, “I do”, and pack a rustic charm that is simply irreplaceable. Canmore, Alberta, is an unsung gem of the Rockies, treating guests to incredible views year-round. Whether you grew up visiting or are looking for an alternative to the busyness of major tourist destinations like Banff or Jasper, here are a few reasons to consider Canmore for your big day!
Canmore is home to incredible mountain views, an incredible culinary scene, and plenty of areas to relax. For those looking for a quiet, peaceful, setting to say their vows, Canmore is often less busy than other tourist destinations like Banff, which is only 26km (16 miles) away. Bordering Kananaskis Country, Canmore is a serene hideaway for couples looking to explore and bask in the rugged beauty that the mountains have to offer.
As a bonus for those with guests coming from out of town, many of the local accommodations are fully equipped suites and condos, making it easy for families to share a settle in early (or stay later to enjoy the scenery on their own!).
Stunning Backdrops and Locations
With nature at your doorstep, it’s hard to find a location in Canmore that doesn’t feature breathtaking views. For those considering an outdoor ceremony, venues like Rundleview Parkette and the Canmore Ranch (exclusive to Cornerstone Theatre in 2019!) treat guests to fantastic views of the Three Sisters and a vast array of natural touches. Permits may be obtained for outdoor venues through the Town of Canmore.
For those feeling a little weather shy, or wanting to stay indoors, the Cornerstone Theatre and Canmore Nordic Centre serve as fantastic venues with luxury wedding services for you and your guests to enjoy. Cornerstone Theatre hosts up to 200 guests in a rustic cabin-style theatre and has plenty of extras to help you and your guests celebrate in style. The Canmore Nordic Centre can comfortably host weddings up to 80 guests. Catering is provided by the Cornerstone team, and several options are available to help you enjoy your day.
Plenty of Activities for Everyone to Enjoy
Whether you’ve been bitten by the adventure bug or are looking to unwind in luxury before your big day, Canmore is full of ways to make the most of the great outdoors. Home to countless trails, lakes, world-class spas and a delectable food scene (including local breweries!), there’s no better place to celebrate your marriage in style.
