Last update: May 2024

Centrally located just 10km north of Sylvan Lake, Alberta, 52 North Venue was created with an industrial-chic design for the modern wedding. Full weekend packages, on-site accommodations, and seven acres of natural scenery, including a winding creek and towering spruce trees, make this venue perfect for a mini-getaway. This location features a New York-style brick wall, high ceilings, and bright natural lighting to create a lavish and stunning wedding.

You can emphasize the minimalist aesthetic or add softer elements such as florals, draping, and romantic lights for your ceremony and reception.

A beautiful attached suite on the second floor features styled vanity prep areas, a living room with a gas fireplace, a full kitchen, sleeping accommodations for up to 6 guests, and two full bathrooms, including a luxury soaker jet tub. The suite offers a large deck with forest views. An additional building steps from the main space includes a speakeasy style wedding party lounge and 4 private bedrooms for up to 8 guests.

A venue & the experience of a lifetime

52 North Venue checked all of our boxes and boxes we didn’t even know we had! There is no where else I would have wanted to get married. Kat and Devon have created the most incredible space, and offer something truly different and unique. No detail has been missed, they have thought of everything and beyond.

Best Wedding Venue

Having out wedding at 52 North was absolutely amazing. The venue is stunning, all of our guest commented on how wonderful and beautiful the venue was, and Kat and Devon are amazing people. They really care about the venue and their clients. They were responsive, accommodating, helpful and kind. The venue is very well managed and it showed. We were really impressed that over the pandemic they reinvested into the venue, between our first viewing and our wedding (2019 to 2022) they really polished the venue and added some useful and beautiful features. I highly recommend 52 North for weddings or any function. You will not be disappointed.

Everything About This Venue Is Absolute Magic!

Kat and Devon are amazing souls! They are super down to earth, easy-going and professional. We booked our August wedding a year and a half in advance and Kat always kept us in the loop as to what was going on at 52 North and always replied to our emails right away, answering any questions we had.
The projects Kat and Devon have done to the venue– the penny bar which is absolutely stunning; the wooden tables are so gorgeous, the brick accent wall that they painted each piece themselves is phenomenal and the beautiful patios outside with all the string lights are incredible. With the amount of time, energy and love they have put into 52 North, you just get this beautiful vibe and energy to your wedding to makes it even more magical.
We got the venue on Friday afternoon and had it until Sunday – this was perfect because my bridesmaids and I stayed in the upstairs loft the night before and we were able to get our hair and makeup done in the gorgeous makeup room there in the morning. I didn’t feel rushed about anything as there was no driving around to be done; everything was there at the venue. This included being able to set up the décor for our ceremony on the morning of our wedding.
We had an outside ceremony that was located on the venue grounds, surrounded by beautiful trees. Because the outside at 52 North is so stunning and gorgeous, we took all our photos there which saved us a lot of time and allowed us to enjoy our day more.
At our reception, we opened the bay doors slightly to be able to get a soft breeze throughout the reception area. Our guests loved the vintage truck that is on the grounds; many photos were taken in front of it. Our guests also loved socializing on the bar stools and barrels as well as the lounge furniture and used the patio area a lot.
At the end of the night, it was perfect because my husband and I stayed in the upstairs loft and were able to sleep in the next morning because 52 North takes down and cleans the reception space; this was INCLUDED in the package!
If you’re looking for a venue where you don’t have to stress and can instead enjoy your beautiful day, then 52 North Venue is exactly who you should choose!
We cannot express enough how much we love 52 North Venue.
From the bottom of our hearts thank you Kat and Devon for help making our wedding as magical as it was!

Stunning property for events, both inside and outside!

Everything about this venue was perfect for us!

The outdoors area is surrounded by beautiful trees and well maintained grass, making it perfect for the ceremony and photos both before and after. From there, we planned to move right into the reception portion of the evening. We figured that being able to stay on the property for both the ceremony and reception was ideal.

When booking a venue, I was also adamant that I wanted something light and airy. 52 North Venue set the perfect backdrop for this with its large garage style windows letting in plenty of natural light, along with the white walls and concrete floors. It also has unique lighting making and a brick wall making it stand out even more.

Lastly, the convenience of the attached suite for myself and the bridesmaids to get ready in the day of was perfect as there were even separate spots for the ladies to have their hair and make up done.

In the end, we rescheduled our wedding twice at this venue due to covid restrictions before eventually deciding to elope at our family cabin. However, the owners (Kat and Devon), were more than flexible throughout the entire process. We will look forward to re-booking this venue in the future for an anniversary party so our guests and us can really celebrate the marriage.

Queer Friendly and Gorgeous Venue

52 North Venue was the perfect location for our elopement! As a queer couple, we appreciated every effort that Kat and Dev took to make the entire experience suited to us. From the very start they were supportive and enthusiastic about our future marriage and the level of comfort that we felt with them is what ultimately encouraged us to choose their venue. With just our immediate family present, we said I do in front of the picture perfect brick wall. We were in awe of how this huge space transformed into an intimate space that met our needs perfectly. We started our day with setting up the dining area, the aisle and the bar which took barely any time at all because the space has so much character on its own! After setting up the reception space, we all headed upstairs and got ready in the suite which was exactly what we needed for the entire family to comfortably prepare for the rest of the day. When we got up there we found so many thoughtful touches that meant the world to us! The ceremony was everything we dreamed of with the industrial yet cozy atmosphere. After the ceremony we were able to take all of our wedding photos in the trees and throughout the venue. Not having to leave the location to get beautiful photos was so convenient. Once the wedding formalities were finished we had an outdoor games tournament with our families. Thanks to the outdoor set up we were able to enjoy the evening under twinkling lights! The next day we had our family back to the upstairs suite to enjoy brunch together before packing up and heading out. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kat and Dev for everything! We cannot recommend 52 North Venue enough, it has everything that you need for a beautiful flow from getting ready to relaxing in a gorgeous tub at the end of the night. Book them for your next event, you won’t regret it!

Our wedding at 52 North was nothing short of phenomenal. The venue is absolutely stunning and had everything we were looking for. The bridal suit is perfect, ceremony space gorgeous and reception area totally unique and incredible. We loved having the option to have our bridal party camp out at the venue. Kat and Devon were so accommodating and easy to work with. They always got back to us right away and were very helpful. Book your wedding here, you won’t regret it!

Meet the team

Kat & Devon
Kat & Devon
Owner/Client Coordinator

Katrina and Devon are the husband and wife team that own and operate 52 North. Their collective knowledge and experience in event production, trades, sound design and music played a major role in the creation of the venue and everything it has to offer.

Both born and raised in Central Alberta, Devon and Kat met at Red Deer College studying music. They've grown into a family of 5 (or 6 if you count their dog Nash!)

Providing a luxury wedding experience is their top priority.

"Like you, we struggled to find a unique, modern venue for our wedding, which is why we custom-built 52 North. The 7-acre wooded property contrasted with the industrial reception space creates an experience like no other. Enjoy the relaxed feeling of a destination wedding event while being only minutes from Sylvan Lake."
