About

Alberta’s Premier Wedding Venue for Romantic indoor-Outdoor Weddings

There’s no other love quite like yours...and there’s no other wedding venue quite like Pine & Pond.

Run-of-the-mill, this is not. Imagine exchanging vows by a gorgeous pond. Majestic trees, rolling green lawns, beautiful flowers, rippling waterfalls, the big prairie sky…your guests won’t be able to get over the charm and romance of the setting.

Facilities and Capacity

After your first magical kiss as newlyweds, you and your guests are invited to celebrate in a transparent tent, with capacity for 200 guests, where you’ll dance the night away under the stars - no matter what the weather holds. Softly illuminated with chandeliers and mini-lights, the tent combines the best of nature and glamour for the most romantic setting imaginable.

Services Offered

As one of Alberta’s most sought-after wedding venues, you and your guests will have exclusive access to the entire multi-acre property. Several historic buildings and features throughout Pine and Pond provide endless inspiration for truly unique wedding photos, and the fire pit, tree-lined paths, and rolling manicured grass create the perfect relaxed setting for your guests to stroll, explore, socialize, and play yard games. Table decor is included so that all you have to worry about on your wedding day is saying "I DO!" Choose from an array of options, hand-selected by our professional decorators.

But more than anything, Pine and Pond is a nature lover’s dream.

There is no shortage of stunning views and vignettes to snap those dreamy wedding photos, and as the sun sets into a stunning pink sky, your guests will be mesmerized as they see just how beautiful rural Alberta really is - and how your wedding was truly the most beautiful one they’ve ever seen.

A variety of packages are available to choose from, so couples can select the one that best suits their vision. Couples can choose a one day or two day package or they could choose an intimate package specifically designed for those who want a smaller sized event. Pine and Pond will take care of the set up, take down and clean up of your event. All packages include a variety of table decor options making it easy for you to plan and customize your event to your preferred style. A list of preferred vendors is provided, including caterers, florists, photographers, transportation, and more. In addition, the bridal couple is welcome to enjoy a honeymoon cabin for their first night as newlyweds together.

    Wedding Venue

    Pine and Pond is an absolutely stunning venue situated just outside of Ponoka, Alberta.
    We had our wedding here on September 11, 2021 and it was absolutely amazing. You get the entire grounds from large grassy areas for cocktail hour and lawn games, an outdoor bar, fire pit area with ample amounts of seating, a separate outdoor ceremony area with platform and arch, bride and groom getting ready buildings, a see-through tent for reception/partying and another bar, and my list goes on!!
    Our guests could not stop raving about the venue, and had so many different areas to enjoy themselves, which eased our minds while we took photos.
    Working with Keith was a breeze, he was timely in responses, was flexible with us and our vision, and on the day staff assisted with set-up and any questions we had, but were also "hands off" where you felt it was your own private property for the evening!
    If you are looking for a place that has it all from decor you can utilize, tons of parking (and you can leave your car overnight), vendor suggestions, no corkage fee, beautiful wood tables, sound system, projector system and so much more, you are in the right place.
    We will forever cherish our beautiful day, and have so many stunning photos that we did not have to go anywhere to take, as the property has so many picture-perfect spots.
    Thank you again Pine and Pond, you guys are amazing!

    Pine and Pond's reply:

    Thank you Kayleigh! You were so wonderful to work with. We are so glad that you chose Pine and Pond to host such a special day for you and Marlin.

    Stunning Venue!

    Pine and Pond is a one of a kind beautiful Venue. Its a one stop shop for amazing ceremony, reception and breath taking photos. Keith the owner works very hard to make sure you as client are happy and satisfied with everything for your big day. Only negative we had is this place is pricy and when you go for the deluxe package or extra time- things really add up! but overall we believed it to be worth it. That is how much we were impressed with Pine and Pond

    My dream venue come true

    Cannot say enough good things about Pine and Pond & their staff. Keith (the owner) was so flexible and patient when we needed to make decisions re: covid. We also hired their bartenders for the night, and they were so great. The venue itself is also stunning and provides many different backgrounds for photos. I’ve had nothing but compliments from my guests about the venue and their staff.

    Pine and Pond's reply:

    So glad that we coule make your wedding dreams come true! Thank you for trusting us in with your wedding day. Best wishes!

    Breath taking

    The gentleman Keith that we were dealing with was awesome. They were flexible at letting us come out a few times. They did a fabulous job on the decorations for the reception. They were also so great as it was raining on our wedding day that they quickly moved the ceremony inside the tent, it was beautiful! The people that run this venue are friendly and do a professional job. They have done so much to this venue to make it magical. My husband and I definitely recommend this venue!

    Love! Love! Love!

    Everything about this venue was absolutely amazing!!!! Keith and his staff helped to make our day so wonderful. My husband and I kept saying that we felt like we were in a movie wedding, and our guests were amazed by this venue. We loved that we could have everything at one location, from the prep, to the ceremony, to the reception. Most of our guests were from Edmonton and Calgary and we were originally concerned about travel and if our guests would enjoy the venue, however everyone raved how much they loved it!!! Overall, this is an incredible venue that you should strongly consider!!

    Pine and Pond's reply:

    Thank you so much Deanna! We appreciate you review and we are so happy to have been able to host your event.

    Amazing venue!

    We booked this venue way before COVID was ever a thing. As our day approached the regulations kept changing and the team at Pine and Pond were so so so flexible and understanding. We experienced so much stress as it felt that the pandemic was taking away all the special moments but the team at Pine and Pond made sure that everything was just as we dreamed it would be and more!

    They have thought of absolutely everything that could add to your day-- from the stunning reception tent, ceremony site, bridal suite and groomsmen den, everything was set up and decorated beautifully. The team at Pine and Pond made sure that everything was all ready to go and the grounds were stunning. I would definitely recommend this venue to everybody as the pictures do not even do it justice.

    I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about this venue and the people that work here... they helped make our day everything we dreamt it would be and more.

    Pine and Pond's reply:

    Thanks for your kind words Madison. It was a pleasure to serve you. We are so proud of how you preserved through the stress caused by the pandemic. Keep being amazing!
