My wife and I had our wedding at Rocking R Guest Ranch in September. The whole experience was so much better then we could have ever imagined! Terri was absolutely fantastic to deal with, not only with making sure everything was perfectly set up she also helped with the planing and provided many ideas to make our wedding the best day of our lives. The cabins are cozy and inviting while the rest of the venue was stunning. There are amazing views from the entire property. On the wedding day Terri and her staff were amazing and made it a truly memorable experience for us! Thank you so much Terri !!!Sent on 19/10/2019

Perfect venue for a wedding
We had our wedding at the Rocking r guest ranch,in August. It's a beautiful venue, the property is green and full of big trees and horses, which made for excellent picutures. The venue tent is lovely, with elegant touches already inside. The food was amazing and we had so many compliments on it as well! Terri was great and very easy to work with, I would highly reccomend this as an event venue. We also stayed in the cabins, which are very comfortable and clean. The hot tub is a nice touch also!Sent on 02/11/2019

Book this VENUE!!!
My Mom kept asking me during my wedding planning, "You sure there's not more to do? This seems too easy". After helping my sisters plan their weddings, my Mom couldn't believe everything Terri included with her Venue and neither could I. Weddings are hard enough to plan you don't need to stress about renting tables, chairs, cutlery, glassware, linens, plates, bartender, servers, etc. Terri takes care of it all. She also has many recommendations for extra vendors to use (photographers, DJ, dessert, decor, wedding planners, etc). Terri also has an option of providing a Hayride which we chose to do, and our guest LOVED it! It gave them something to do while photos where being taken. Not to mention the other horses on her land the guest loved as well.Sent on 06/08/2019
Terri also has 2 cabins available on her property which we also booked and had the best time. The night before the wedding my girls and I enjoyed having a glass of wine in the hot tub and relaxing before the craziness began the next morning. The next morning we woke up to an amazing view and while hair and makeup were being done we enjoyed the entertainment from the horses outside our front door.
I sent Terri numerous emails with questions, confirmations, etc. She always got back to me within the same hour if not sooner. She was very accommodating when we asked to come out to the Ranch to plan some decorations and then again with our photographers. The day of our wedding, it was calling for rain and Terri prepared me the ceremony may not be able to be held outside. However, she gave me some other options and was willing to wait until the last minute to call it. Which I appreciated so much.
The Rocking R Guest Ranch was the first venue we went to go look at. We loved it right away. But we felt we needed to look at one more venue just to compare. Our second venue didn't even come CLOSE to The Rocking R Ranch. If you are looking for a rustic, GORGEOUS, stress-free venue. Then look no further because you have found it. I could go on and on about how amazing this place is and how wonderful Terri was to deal with. All I can recommend to you is, take the time to go visit the Ranch. I guarantee you will not be wasting your time.
Rocking R Guest Ranch's reply:Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We really appreciate all of your wonderful comments! You were so calm on your wedding day and we are happy that we were able to help you create a stress-free wedding. All the best to you and Brad!

Amazing wedding experience
My husband and I just recently got married at Rocking R Guest Ranch and had what can only be described as a perfect day.
We started our wedding venue search with the goal of finding something outdoorsy, but found the places in Banff, Kanaskasis and Canmore to not quite fit the bill - either too expensive or too restrictive or too cookie cutter. We stumbled upon Rocking R while doing some online searching and were able to meet with Terri the next day to check it out. We fell in love immediately and have absolutely no regrets with having our big day out there. Nearly every guest commented on how picturesque the setting is and what a wonderful wedding spot we had found.
Terri was incredibly supportive every step of the way, making sure we were on track and able to answer any and all questions.
Her list of preferred vendors made the planning stages nearly seamless as we went with her tried and true suppliers who did not disappoint. A tasting dinner in early spring allowed us to meet with additional vendors as well as taste the delicious food from the on location caterer.
Being able to have access to the venue from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning allowed for a non-frantic set up and time spent with friends and family during the rehearsal bbq which we were able to host out there as well. The cabins on site are extremely well appointed with every detail thought of.
We additionally hired a ‘day of’ coordinator which took the organization to the next level and allowed Terri to focus on keeping the venue top notch.
Hurry up and book this place!

Absolutely Perfect Wedding Venue
We had our wedding at the Rocking R' Guest Ranch on June 29th, 2019. We came across this venue by chance when we were searching in the fall of 2017! We instantly fell in love.
From the moment you drive onto the property you are surrounded by natural beauty and an instant feeling of relaxation! Terri was amazing to work with and she really has thought of it all. She is prompt in her responses and so incredibly easy to work with. Her staff and trusted vendors are extremely professional - from the amazing dinner service to the top notch bar tenders, nothing about our experience was negative.
We had an absolutely perfect wedding weekend and I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a relaxed, fun wedding. This venue offered us a beautiful outdoor ceremony spot (with a wood arbour and a stunning tree to tie the knot under), a spot to set up lawn games for our guests, so many amazing spots to take photos, a patio for all of our guests to enjoy each other's company and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, a tent for our reception and dance, and 2 beautiful cottages to enjoy over the weekend!
We cant wait to go back and stay in one of the cottages for a few nights. There is something so peaceful about this place and it truly is something special!Sent on 21/07/2019
Rocking R Guest Ranch's reply:Thank you for the wonderful review!! We very much enjoyed hosting your wedding at the ranch. You, Alex, your family and friends were so easy to work with and we are thrilled that were able to make your wedding day a success! All the best in your married life!

Beautiful views and venue
It is a beautiful venue and property. Terri really takes care of you which takes away a lot of stress that comes with planning. She is very professional and organized. The food was amazing and all of our guests enjoyed the selection from the appies to dinner. The only down sides are having to have the music off and guests gone by 1230 but that was made very clear to us prior to booking. As well as part of the package is having access to the beautiful cabins on the property but they are pricey and you do have to pay for them regardless if you are using both or not for the weekend. There are lots of beautiful areas around for taking wedding photos and everything went very smoothly.Sent on 21/09/2018

Amazing wedding venue!
We hosted our wedding at the ranch on July 14, 2018. It was truly a perfect day and we were so happy with the venue that we chose!
Terri (the owner) is extremely responsive and easy to work with. She has hosted many weddings and has thought of every detail to make your day as streamlined as possible. Hosting the rehearsal dinner at the ranch and then having the bride and bridesmaids stay in the cabins that evening made everything so relaxed. It would have been very hectic to get ready at one location, move to another for the ceremony and then move again for pictures or the reception. The day flies by, so being in one spot is ideal!
The property is beautifully manicured and the tent is spacious, clean and even has chandeliers! The outdoor patio space is great for warm summer evenings and the ranch gets the best sunsets; all of our guests were taking photos! We received a lot of compliments about the food and the service was great. Being able to bring your own alcohol is also a huge bonus.
Overall, I would highly recommend this venue, we had an amazing experience!Sent on 26/07/2018

Rocking R Guest Ranch Wedding
My husband and I were married at Rocking R in June 2018. The venue, both ceremony and reception area are so beautiful. Terri was amazing and we had tons of flexibility in terms of decorating, food etc. I would highly recommend Rocking R if you are looking for a farm wedding close to the city. My guests commented on how much fun the venue was and how yummy the food tasted. The only thing I would note as a caution is that due to the area bylaws, music must be off by 11:30pm. That means bar closed and everything shut off by 11:30pm. We were well aware of this when we booked but it does come quickly and we didn't want it to end because we were having such an amazing time! I think this is pretty standard for out door weddings. Something to keep in mind when you are booking your venue. Rocking R went above and beyond for our wedding and we are still so happy we booked and were married there. Thank you Terri!Sent on 20/08/2018

The ease that the location made our wedding was excellent. Being able to have everything at a single location made the stress of the whole event much easier. The food was well received by everyone and was very pleased with the hall. Overall it made the entire day very enjoyable and we left with no regrets with our wedding.Sent on 13/11/2017
