    Intimate Mountain Wedding!

    Buffalo Mountain Lodge was a great venue. We had our ceremony on Tunnel Mountain Reservoir, and we are STILL getting compliments from our friends that it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. Wapiti Lodge was only about a 200m walk from the ceremony site, and has a true mountain lodge feel. Hardly any decorations are necessary as the room is beautiful in itself! Be prepared: if your guest number is too high, buffet for food will be served downstairs - which is hard on our older relatives! We had to go for a plated dinner due to this. All music has to be off by midnight, so the night did feel somewhat shorter than we would have liked. However, it was a small compromise for the venue location - one of the best locations for your money in Banff!

    Picturesque Venue

    This place was amazing, and by far exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing, the space we had was well worth the price. They were also very helpful for setting up our ceremony across the street!!

    The staff here were phenomenal

    We had our celebration of love here in January.

    The main building is gorgeous with the little bar area.
    As for rooms, ours was dated, but pet friendly as we brought our dog. My parents requested a room in the new area, amd their room was gorgeous. I would recommend requesting a new room.

    However, what really made the celebration and the stay, was the staff. They were absolutely phenomenal. Over the weekend we requested extra chairs, a play pen, salt on some ice, and the christmas decorations to be removed prior to our ceremony. Everything was addressed within minutes. They were so fantastic.

    The meal during the reception was incredible. We had the options of steak and salmon, my grandpa said it was the best steak he has ever eaten. The lava cakes were mouthwatering!

    All in all, what made this place were the staff. Good work you guys, thank you for the worry free weekend.
