Amazing venue, you won't regret choosing them!
We got married here over the September long weekend and I can't say enough of how beautiful and perfect this place is. The property is stunning and beautiful on it's own, requiring minimal decoration as it's just naturally beautiful. The owners are extremely responsive and flexible to help you get the exact day you want. The log cabin is a marvel to stay in so I highly recommend doing that. It was so wonderful to be able to stay on the property, as well as the option to have friends and family camp on property too - it just made everything better having everyone so close and having fun. Everyone that came to the wedding complimented how stunning it was and was so impressed with the place. Go check it out, it's worth it and so close to Calgary or Red Deer that it's easy to find vendors. There's also lots available more locally from nearby towns of Sundre and Olds. We were so happy with our wedding here and I honestly have no regrets about choosing this venue. Thanks Bev and team!Sent on 09/09/2021

Bev and Murray Jans
Hi, we are Murray and Bev Jans. We are the owners/operators of Diamond in the Rough Wedding and Events Venue. We were told that we could skip posting our age, so we’re going with that!
Our hobbies and interests include our horses, camping, my mini donkeys, Murray’s hunting and fishing, but most of all, our 4 beautiful grandkids! Murray always says we should have had them first!
We have been married for 35 years this year and both feel so fortunate to have had one another, our best friend at our side since the day we said “I Do!” We remember our wedding day with fond memories and smiles on our faces. The hope of our family is that Diamond in the Rough can play a part in helping create those fond memories for others.
We have farmed cattle together for the past 34 years. This last spring, we decided as a family, that we were ready to make a change. It has been a journey and a dream come true.
The journey that we will forever treasure, has been having all of our kids at our sides transforming the farm into a “Diamond in the Rough”. You have been meeting them in prior posts over the past few days. What you don’t know about them is that they are hard working, dedicated and caring young adults that make us so very proud to call ours! Without them, the idea nor the work it has taken to bring the dream to life would ever have been possible.

Hi my name is Lane and I am the oldest in the family and this is my beautiful wife Jenna. We live in Grande Prairie with our 4 beautiful kids!
My role at Diamond in the Rough is general labourer, equipment operator and chief drywall installer. Then my wife helps with decor, landscaping inspiration. Since we live away we plan to come down in the summers during high season to help whenever we can. I work for Nakoda Energy Services providing flameless heat and fuel gas management. My wife is a stay at home mom and full time hobby farm and art enthusiast. Together in our free time we care for our goats, alpaca, donkeys, mini donkey, mini horse, chickens, geese, pigs, pot belly pigs and a luscious garden. The winter months are spent on the mountain backcountry sledding...BRAAAAP!
Im very excited to be a part of such an amazing family adventure that keeps us all so connected and I can’t wait for the finished product!

Hi my name is Leah and my role at Diamond in the Rough has been the website designer, landscape enthusiast as well as I assist with email response and bookings.
I am 30 years old and I am the second oldest child in our family.
I have been in the Social Work field for over 10 year mainly working with victims of domestic violence. I now work for Alberta Health Services at the Red Deer Hospital. I have a Bachelors Degree in Social Work which supports my love of working with people.
The first love of mine has been travelling, I have always been planning for the next trip. My favourite place in the world will always be Iceland. You will always hear me recommend it when talking about travel.
Since Diamond in the Rough became a part of our family I have been so excited to inspire our new landscape. I have been working on beautiful gardens, and flower beds that will compliment your dream wedding and photos.
