Beautiful Wedding Venue
Incredible All-Inclusive Venue
Any issues or questions we had leading up to the event were dealt with professionally and promptly. The staff we’d met were wonderful and helpful the whole way through.
The venue is stunning and our experience has been very simple and professional!
Amazing! Can't wait to have our wedding there!!
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!
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!!
