Wedding Day Testimonials & Pictures

We would like to say a heart felt Thank you to all their Bride & Grooms.

"To you all, 

Our lives have been touched and blessed in more ways than we could have imagined.

Your trust in us to produce the Wedding of dreams gave us the inspiration to go further. 

The friendship, warmth and overpowering love we have had the privilege to witness during and after the wedding ceremonies reminds us time after time of the wedding vows we made and the joy there is to be gained in marriage. When you shed tears so did we, discretely. When you left our home as Man & Wife you left behind a happiness within the building that everyone senses. We are grateful to have been part of your special day and hope that you will choose to visit us for many anniversaries to come."

Here are some beautiful blogs of weddings hosted at the Inn, some with the ceremony onsite, some off site, some with offsite photography sessions others staying at the Inn for the whole day. We hope as new couples planning your day you gain some inspiration and come celebrate your wedding in Canmore.

Take a look at some beautiful blogs of weddings at the Inn.

Thank you for making our wedding day and weekend celebrations so special. Our guests were at ease, so we were at ease. All the small details did not get unnoticed from the candles by the tub to the signing of guest book and everything in between. You have helped us make memories for the rest of our lives. We are looking forward to seeing you again.

Norman and Liz Leach (Father of the Bride)

When Celia dragged us 4,000 miles to Canada for her wedding we didn't know that we would have such a wonderful time and meet such good folk as Lonny & Fiona (and Jacqueline & Sophia) -- we certainly didn't know we would be so well fed and watered. We've had a great time and thank everyone for all they did to make it such a great time. What more can I say!!
