This is something my now husband and I looked into as well. Would you be open to still doing a bit of a destination wedding? By that, I mean, there’s a company that does elopements in Banff, Canmore and Lake Lousie. You could have a gorgeous wedding ceremony in Lake Louise with your parents and siblings present and gorgeous mountains as your back drop, then still come back into Calgary for the reception in the evening.

As for a reception venue, my reception was at Crestmont Community Centre. It was reasonably priced. It doesn’t need much for decoration, as there’s windows all around, so basically a mountain view. You would just have to bring in your own caterer. The facility is fantastic though. Our reception had 65 people, and it worked very well. The venue didn’t feel too big or too small.

Weather is definitely an issue!  I would just make sure you have a back up plan, somewhere you can move inside if necessary.  My cousin was married inside hotel arts, they had wanted to do an outdoor patio thing by the pool but it rained so we just moved the party inside… noone noticed, just kept drinking!

Rocky Mountain Elopements http://www.rockymountainweddings.ca/  . I don’t personally know of anyone who has used them before, but they’ve great info on their website. I’m sure there’s other companies that offer this service as well.

Darling Husband and I decided to have a bigger ceremony and in a church was important, so it was at Central United Church.
