About Obsidian Ridge

Obsidian Ridge is an eclectic wedding venue located in Tofield, Alberta. This expansive estate represents the equal passion the owners share for innovative design and spectacular celebrations. Incorporating elements of ancient architecture with a modern edge, this event space has to be seen to be believed. Honor your special day in a true one-of-a-kind location, creating memories you and your loved ones will treasure for life.

Facilities and Capacity

The brainchild of founders Jodi and Layson LaFayette, Obsidian Ridge exists to provide an alternative kind of event space to your average venue. Part of the LaFayette’s mission with this establishment is to help their clients fully immerse themselves in their milestone celebration. They offer an overnight experience so guests can reap the benefits of their unique resort. You may begin your day in the hobbit hole get-ready suite which is built out of a converted airstream vehicle and features contemporary, luxurious design. Then, you can pass through the moon gate and exchange your vows in the epic amphitheater, constructed entirely from monolithic stone. Your guests can witness your ceremony surrounded by the great outdoors, with a seven stage waterfall and infinity edge pond only a short distance away. Gather post-service around the fire pit and share some refreshments. This carefully crafted area is a brief walk from the camping grounds and has a capacity of up to 200 people. To host a remarkable reception, you are invited to make use of the specially crafted indoor reception tent. This structure, with its dramatic fabric cathedral ceiling and stunning views of the surrounding landscape, provides a spacious area in which to share a meal with loved ones. Warm chandelier lighting throws a golden glow upon you from above, aiding the peaceful ambience. Following your meal, seating can be cleared to make way for the dancefloor, where you and your guests can revel until bedtime.

    The venue is stunning and our experience has been very simple and professional!

    We had an amazing tour of this beautiful venue and were blown away at all of the detail and effort put into each aspect of it. From the amazing stone in the amphitheater, the incorporated elements, the groom and bridal suites, to the social fire pit, we fell in love with it right away! The hard work ethic and professionalism was very vivid as well. We are very excited to have our special day here and would recommend it to anyone!

    Amazing! Can't wait to have our wedding there!!

    Layson is great to work with. Very easy and quick communication. Very accommodating. Provided a perfect tour that really gave us a vision for our wedding. I love how much pride they have in the venue and the story that goes along with it.
    The venue is gorgeous and has more than what we've dreamed of. Words can't express our excitement!

    The outdoor wedding venue in alberta!

    I wish I could underline the word 'the' in the title because I feel this is THE absolute best outdoor venue area in the province!!!! You know how you book an all-inclusive vacation so you have no worries once your holidaying?? Well, this is wedding equivalent of that!!!

    The energy in this place is so warm, romantic, welcoming, happy, comfortable, charming, relaxing, and positive. I love how friendly and helpful the staff are and they do everything they can to ensure your day is easy and as magical as you've dreamed about your whole life.

    The countless hours of work the crew have put in to this environment is apparent the minute you drive up to the stone gates and the feeling you get once you exit your vehicle to look around is like none other. They left no stone unturned (you'll see why that phrase is appropriate once you go look!!) and everything you see here comes with a ton of thought behind it; from the use of symbolism throughout, to the optimum daylight hours for photo ops, it's all there!

    This place is the real deal, people!! I'm so in love with it and wish I could just move in and spend all my days here!!!

    You won't regret booking here one bit, I guarantee it!!

    The grounds are so incredibly breathtaking! I couldn’t have dreamt up a more beautiful space for my event! The owners/operators of the site were easy to work with. It made the whole experience wonderful! I highly recommend this venue!
