Best Venue Ever!!

Hosting our wedding at Kicking Horse was a dream come true! From start to finish, we could not have been happier with the service, hospitality, responsiveness, attention to detail, flexibility, and organization from the entire Kicking Horse and Eagle's Eye staff, with a special shoutout to Nadja who was integral to making the entire wedding process seamless. The Eagle's Eye venue was spectacular, inside and out, and bent over backwards to make the day exactly what we had envisioned to the tiniest of details. In the strongest terms, we would recommend KHMR as a wedding venue for any almost-newlyweds!

Incredible Venue

Where to begin.. KMHR was truly the most sensational wedding venue, for so many reasons. I should preface this review by saying that I went into this completely blind, I am from the US and never saw the venue or tasted the food until our rehearsal. First - location! What a positively spectacular place. The views of the mountains are unmatched, and the restaurant is the stunning. I literally could not have dreamed up a better spot for my wedding. Two - food! We opted for the buffet and WOW, it was wonderful. Even my extremely picky family members raved about the food. Three - Staff! Rachel and Nadja made the planning process so very easy from start to finish. I kept waiting for the stress to set in, and it never did. Day of we had a few hiccups, and Nadja went above and beyond for us. She was also so super with our guests who wanted to use some of the wedding perks around the resort. Night of, the staff was so kind, helpful and attentive. We also opted to stay on the top of the mountain that night, which I would definitely recommend. The staff were amazing start to finish.

If you are on the fence about this place, do it! You will not regret it.

The most incredible wedding we could have imagined

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort was the perfect location for our dream wedding. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice. The views from the top of the mountain at Eagle’s Eye were absolutely breathtaking and provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and reception.

The staff at the resort, including the coordinators and restaurant staff, were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Rachel and Nadja, especially, made the planning and execution of our big day a breeze. They were attentive to our needs and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. They were friendly, professional and made sure that everything was executed perfectly.

One of the highlights of the venue was the food, which was absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about the meal and we were so pleased with the quality of the food and service. The restaurant staff was incredibly accommodating and made sure that every detail was taken care of.

The accommodations at the resort were also amazing. Our guests were able to stay on-site and enjoy all the amenities the resort had to offer, including the outdoor hot tubs with a view of the mountain.

Overall, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort was an incredible location for our wedding. The staff, views, food, and accommodations were all top-notch and we couldn't be happier with our choice. We highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a unique and beautiful mountaintop wedding.

Dream Mountain Wedding

From start to finish, this venue did not disappoint. Nadja and Rachel were our primary contacts during the wedding planning process and they were both very responsive, professional, and very helpful with all the questions that we had leading up to the big day. The venue is very transparent with costs and provide a detailed breakdown of pricing. They are also very accommodating with any special requests (such as dietary needs, alcoholic beverages, food/drinks throughout the day, decorations, set up, etc.). The staff at the Eagles eye are amazing, especially Mark. Mark made sure everything was perfect the day of the wedding, from providing food to the wedding party during the day, to helping me with my dress before walking down the aisle, to gathering and taking down all the decorations at the end of the night - he was awesome and ensured that everything went smoothly! The servers and bartenders were also very attentive and helpful throughout the night and the food was amazing!!! I also recommend the food tasting a month before as it really helped solidify how the day would flow and any last minute details that might need to be sorted out before the big day. I can honestly say that this was the wedding of my dreams and I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone looking for a mountain wedding!

A Dream Wedding Venue

From the moment we were engaged this was the only venue we wanted. It is so incredibly beautiful. We were married at the end of March and the weather that day was incredible. The views were spectacular. We had lots of family travelling from other parts of Canada and the UK and they all said it was the most beautiful setting for a wedding. Nadya and Rachel and the team at the Eagles Eye went above and beyond to make the day go so smoothly. They were so amazing at every part of the planning process and I felt completely confident in them. They helped me to find ways to honour my Dad during the reception and helped us to perfect the menu. They offered tons of advice throughout. The food was incredible as was the service. We stayed up at Eagles Eye for the night and the service the next day was great too.
I would absolutely recommend Eagles Eye for any wedding, such a once in a lifetime special venue.

Amazing wedding venue, highly recommended!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Eagle’s Eye restaurant this summer after two postponements due to COVID. We chose this place as multiple friends had told us it was the best wedding venue they had ever been to, and we were absolutely not disappointed – the same sentiment was shared with us after the wedding by many of our guests. We worked with KHMR staff for three years planning this event, and they (Rachel and Nadja in particular) were an absolute dream to work with – fast response times, clear information provided, and always professional. The food and service were excellent (thanks to Mark and Wade), and they were very accommodating of our requests. We dealt with some bad weather on the day of and day after which impacted the gondola, but KHMR took away the stress by arranging for trucks to carry guests up and even stored some stuff for us for a week until we could swing by and pick it up (special thanks to Rachel and Nadja for saving my flowers!). We truly felt that they went above and beyond for us and would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is considering it for their wedding!

Dream wedding on top of a mountain

We had our wedding at Eagle's Eye restaurant at Kicking Horse resort in July 2022, and have nothing but glowing reviews for the team, organization, service, and the VIEWS! And considering the incredible location, we felt that the value was well worthwhile. We would happily recommend this venue and team to any couple!

Amazing experience during uncertain times

My (now) wife and I booked this venue for August 2021 back in January during the height of the pandemic, hoping things would clear up in time. Dispite the stressful scenario, staff at Kicking Horse could not have made our experience any easier or be more accomodating. From the day called and toured the venue, to the dozens of emails through plannning, until the week and day of the wedding, they took the absolute best care of us, our families and our guests. If we could give more than 5 stars across the board we would. Cheers to Nadja, Rachel and their amazing team!

Simply Amazing

Not only is this a insanely beautiful venue but the quality of people they have is amazing. Not to mention this corporation allowed for a refund given the 2020 covid 19 pandemic. I have so much respect for them and will reccomend them every single time. We chose to elope with just 10 of our family members and to forfeit the big wedding but the staff was outstanding throughout the whole process. Nadja & Andrew are responsive, respectful, caring and just all around amazing to deal with. Should you'd decide to book with them you will never once regret it. My heart goes out to the 2020 Covid brides and my many many thanks goes to this amazing company for making this easier on us.
Thank you for everything guys, you really are rock stars!

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!!
