We had our ceremony and reception at Eagle's Eye Restaurant at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. I would highly recommend this venue. Kicking Horse offers a stunning view for pictures and ceremony site and excellent service and staff. Capacity for the Eagle's Eye venue is 116, we ... View more had 85 guests and I don' think I would have more than 90 in this venue for space and comfort of everyone. The chef at time was easy to work and flexible with menu choices. The menu offered has tons of choices! My only complaint would be that the food was served a little late during our plated service which held up the evening a little! We loved every minute of our wedding day and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort was a big part as to why!

We had our wedding at the top of Kicking Horse mountain, it is the most breath taking venue around. So amazing that you can get married at the top and others can come too (Gondola)! The venue at the top is beautifully decorated and not at all like a ski chalet. I would choose ... View more this venue again and again. The staff were perfect and my contact person throughout all of the planning was amazing and made it so stress free. I cant stress enough how amazing this place is- worth every penny.

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Eagle's Eye. Getting married on top of the world was breathtaking and perfect. Marcus, the manager, was beyond helpful and professional. The wedding coordinators were always prompt on getting back to my many random questions. The venue is hands down the most beautiful place on earth.

I have nothing but amazing thing to say about this wedding venue. Not only is the view phenomenal, making for unique and truly stunning experiences and photos, but the staff is exceptional. We were consistently impressed with the level of service we received both before and on ... View more our wedding day. The food was amazing, people are still talking about it. If you love mountains, skiing or are slightly adventurous. I highly recommend a Kicking Horse wedding! Its just so beautiful and perfectly organized.
