An undeniably amazing wedding venue
I cannot say enough about how easy it was to plan my wedding at this venue. Adrienne and Nadja were so helpful and responsive. Their passion and enthusiasm definitely shows, and they always try to do whatever they can to accommodate your requests.
We had our ceremony and reception at Eagle's Eye Restaurant and it was nothing short of spectacular. The staff during the wedding was awesome and things ran exactly on schedule. We did the buffet option, which I highly recommend. I can't say enough good things about how easy this whole process was. Everyone always kept asking me "how's the wedding planning going?" making me feel like I should be doing more. But you don't need to do a lot because this place is already so beautiful, and they basically handle all of the seating/decor logistics. With this venue, your wedding will be a true "experience." I live in the US and a venue like this in the states would be at least 3 times the cost. I highly recommend it.Sent on 16/08/2018

We had an excellent wedding at Kicking Horse mountain resort - a local destination wedding. Views were stunning! Staff were friendly and helpful (Adrianne was especially helpful) - they offer several options but if you want a lot of customization it can be tough. They are set up better for receptions at Eagles Eye (in terms of literature, bar service and decor support). Also, keep in mind the alcohol options changed mid summer (slight changes to the wine list, price changes and major changes to the craft beer options).Sent on 23/10/2017

Amazing day at an amazing place
This choice for our wedding day was perfect! Adrianne and Nadja were always there to answer any questions I had , and so prompt in responding. They made the organizing and planning so much easier! The ceremony went seamlessly , and Mel is such a great help, she no doubt had something to do with it all running on time. The ceremony itself was incredible;memories we will cherish forever. The staff and everyone at the Eagles eye is so great! They were never rude or made me to feel stressed out at all. We had our reception at the Whitetooth Grill... the space is beautiful. There is more info on the eagle eye reception so I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect. But it was flawless! They set up your tables and then we had to go in and decorate. I had minimal
Decorations and the space looked great! The reception was so much fun, beautiful, and the food was amazing. We did the Selkirk buffet and had so many compliments on how great the food was! If you are considering this as your wedding venue, don’t hesitate. I could not recommend this place enough. We are already planning our trip back!!Sent on 01/10/2018

Amazing Views, Service, Food and Drink
We had an amazing day and night yesterday for our Wedding at Kicking Horse Resort and Eagle's Eye Restaurant. Adrianne, Nadja and all of the staff that helped organize the venue rental, hotels, gondola, schedule etc. did an amazing job and were timely in their response when we had questions.Sent on 09/08/2018
We were able to get a large group of our guests out to Peak’s Grill Saturday night and appreciate the staff there and their willingness to cater to such a larger group and make sure everyone “hydrated” and fed.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at Eagle's Eye Restaurant and both were everything we could image. The food, drink and gondola were all spectacular and everyone enjoyed it very much – we only heard positive reviews from all of our guests. The gorgeous views helped provide one of the most stunning backdrops we could have ask for. The staff at Eagle’s Eye Restaurant were absolutely amazing. Mel and her team went above and beyond in helping to make sure that not only my wife and I were taken care of, but all of our guests as well. The food and drink was delicious and all the staff provided amazing service were so friendly and easy to work. They handled all of our questions and concerns immediately and with care which helped make the night that much more enjoyable. Jasmin was our overnight staff and we would like to acknowledge that her friendliness and willingness to help make our overnight and morning as special as it was, was very much appreciated.
Thank you very much everyone at Kicking Horse Resort and Eagle’s Eye Restaurant!

The perfect mountain wedding!
Our wedding at Kicking Horse was the most perfect day imaginable. Nadja was so accommodating, patient, and organized. We honestly spent the weeks leading up to the wedding saying, "There's no way it can be this easy!" It was such a stress-free experience, and we are still getting dozens of compliments 6 months later. It was a no-fuss location, we only needed minimal decorations because the surroundings were so beautiful. We were stunned at the value of the location, our guests are still all convinced that we broke the bank for such a beautiful wedding, but we found it to be very reasonable because so much was included, and we never felt as though we were being 'nickel-and-dimed'. Our guests loved getting to all stay in the village so that we could meet up for breakfasts, etc. The food was fantastic, the tasting experience was amazing, and we would get married here again a thousand times over. Can't recommend highly enough.Sent on 08/04/2018
