In this multi-week series, our experts give advise on how to have the best Winter Wedding possible.

There’s something about a Winter Wedding in the Mountains that screams Romance. With the majestic beauty of snow covered tress and mountain caps, plus the amazing light that winter emits, if you’re looking for the full mountain experience, winter is the perfect time to book your wedding.

Here in Canmore and Kananaskis, we are all about winter (it’s around for 8 months out of the year, so we kind of have to be), and we know winter weddings. If you’re planning on, or thinking about having a winter wedding, you’ll want to read on for tips and inspiration from our local wedding professionals, on how to get the most out of your Winter Mountain Wedding.


Today we have winter wedding venue and inspiration from Coast Canmore Hotel, Grand Rockies Resort, Delta Lodge at Kananaskis and Alpine Helicopters.
