    @sbruin99: I voted Lake Louise based on price and that it has a lodge feel. Good luck with your planning.

    I met FH in Lake Louise – we used to work at the Chateau! Taking photos on a long weekend is going to be a challenge, for sure. I voted Lake Louise, but you’ll have to figure out transportation (there’s one cab in Lake Louise, and it’s usually pretty busy on weekends) and accomodation can be hard to find if you don’t book well in advance. What about food and beverage – who supplies that, and how much are those costs? 

    The $300 sounds like the cost associated with flipping the room from ceremony to reception, and means that they can’t use the space for anything else that morning.

    Lake Louise is gorgeous… but it gets sooooo busy on long weekends so if it were me, I’d be incredibly pissed off with all the strangers walking around ruining our photos. The Sunday wouldn’t bother me though because the Monday is still a holiday, but the busy factor would probably make me pick Banff instead.
