    Beautiful Winter Wedding

    We had a winter wedding at the Sun Peaks Grand, ceremony on the Terrace and Reception in the ballroom. They do a fantastic job of setting everything up and making sure that everything is done to spec. We worked with Faith and she did an amazing job double checking things herself that day to make sure our day was great. The day was wonderful, the scenery couldn't be beat. All our guests had a great time up at Sun Peaks as well as the wedding. If you look up photographer Nancy Critchley Photography on Inta or facebook you will see some of the amazing photos.

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful comments Alysa. It was truly our pleasure to have the chance to work with you to create your perfect wedding day! Wishing you and your now husband all the best in this new chapter of your lives as Mr and Mrs.

    September 8th, 2018 Wedding

    We had our early fall wedding up at Sun Peaks just a couple of weeks ago. We absolutely loved our experience! The wedding coordinators were incredible, and were extremely accomodating and helpful during our whole weekend. There were several last minute changes we needed help with, and they were able to accomodate us. Faith, especially was amazing to work with! I cannot put into words how thankful I am for her flexibility and help.
    Thank you Sun Peaks & Faith/Kaitlyn/Corrie!
    Matt & Lindsay

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much Lindsay! It was truly a beautiful wedding, we were happy to help out in any way we could, congratulations again to you both.

    Sun Peaks Wedding

    I had Sun Peaks picked out in my head before even being there. It was the backdrop we wanted as well as location. From point of contact to the final day Kaitlyn and her team were friendly, professional and thorough. From small requests to large ones they pulled through for us and made everything come together perfect. Small hiccups were resolved quietly and calmly and they made every effort to make us feel special up to that day. I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much for the lovely review Kelti! It was really our pleasure to be such a big part of your wedding day. It really was a beautiful one!

    Excellent!

    Our wedding ceremony was totally amazing at the mid mountain chapel, Sun Peaks. Kaitlyn helped organise our perfect day with no fuss and it was super affordable! The day went so smoothly and we had the best time! Catching the chairlift up to my wedding was an incredible experience! Thank you!

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    What a lovely review Meghan, thank you so much! It was really our pleasure to be a part of such a special day for you and your husband.

    The Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Conference Centre and the Village of Sun Peaks was the perfect back drop for our wedding! If you are looking for a "destination" wedding that is still close to home this is the perfect venue for you. The banquet staff for our event were attentive, professional, and very friendly to all of our guests. Our wedding coordinator through the Sun Peaks Grand, Kaitlyn, was absolutely amazing, She made the whole event possible and made the planning process so much easier. She was the cherry on top for us.

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review Chelsea. It was our absolute pleasure being a part of this very special day! Just know that you will always have a little place in the heart of Sun Peaks and we look forward to you and Alex coming back to visit us anytime.

    Cheers!

    Sun Peaks Grand hosted our Wedding this summer and we couldn't have been happier with the destination! Everything was organized perfectly and effortlessly!
    We stayed in the Mountain Suite and it was just phenomenal!
    The Covered Bridge by the Heart Shaped Rock was the perfect setting for the ceremony...absolutely stunning!
    I would recommend Sun Peaks Grand to anyone who is planning a wedding.

    My husband and I had our wedding at Sun Peaks on Dec. 17, 2016. It was absolutely wonderful! The staff were very helpful and worked with us on many different issues. The food was absolutely delicious! The atmosphere was sincerely magical. It was their busy season, so there were a lot of people around, but we didn't mind the attention. People thought we were part of the attractions (as there were a lot of people dressed up and walking around) and were taking photos of us (So if that isn't your thing, I suggest going during spring/summer/fall months). It was wonderful, children thought I was some sort of snow queen! haha! Well, anyways, if we could do it there again, we would!

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review Michelle! Anytime you and your husband would like to come back and visit us please do as we would love to see you both again.

    Our Cancelled Covid Wedding...

    We were to be married at sun peaks this past weekend.
    Due to Covid we cancelled last year.
    Our wedding planner Kaitlyn messaged us just prior to our what would have been date with the kindest words, when almost noone even remembered that this was to be our day, she did.
    She loves her job and loves her clients and it showed through the whole process. When we had to cancel, she was so accommodating and the entire sucky process was handled with grace and ease.
    I can't imagine that was easy, but she never let it show. As brides all around me were having bad experiences in rescheduling & cancelling, Kaitlyn held us with compassion, rather than inconvenience in the process.
    In the planning stages, her level of excitement was right there with ours!
    The entire process was really amazing with the resort.
    I just wanted to leave this review because I am so grateful, in retrospect, that this was going to be our wedding place. With covid, we still don't know what to do...
    but when we do figure it out, our new plans will not be made without the gratitude in our hearts for what Sun Peaks did for us in this "first try" at booking our wedding.
    Thank you to everyone there who walked with us on this journey.
    Sun Peaks and its people are pure magic.
    Anyone who chooses to be married there will not be disappointed.
    Summer or Winter, the Mountian is amazing.

    Ps..the pic below is not from the wedding but from me and my bride squad skiing in wedding dresses as a pre run ;)

    Covid Bride,
    Kylye

    Beautiful venue and lovely to work with

    We got married in September and scaled back our guest list from 75 to 15. We had paid for almost the whole 75-person ceremony and reception already, but when we decided to go with a ceremony only, sun peaks refunded us all the money we had put down for our reception. It was a huge weight off to not have to worry about that or when to reschedule if they had held our money.

    From the beginning when we first booked early 2019, they were super responsive, really great about answering questions and keeping us advised of staff changes.

    Ceremony site was very beautiful and we barely decorated.

    Overall really great experience and we plan to throw an anniversary party in sun peaks next year or the year after.

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much Stephanie for such kind words. While unfortunately your wedding wasn't able to occur as you had originally planned it was still a beautiful day and we were still honored to have been a part of it.

    Amazing.......Food, People & Setting

    We had our wedding here in February 2019, it was a pure Winter wonderland wedding. It was perfect! Faith was our coordinator at Sun Peaks & she was beyond helpful & always got back to us in a reasonable time from any queries & questions we had. She went out of her way to make sure the day went smoothly & as we had planned. We were in constant contact with Faith throughout the lead up to our wedding & we were kept in the know all the way through. Rob & his team did an amazing job with the food & even went out of their way to ensure all the dietry requirements of some of our guests were met. Everyone that attended had nothing but great things to say. The ballroom was perfect the staff were amazing throughout the day & the outside setting for photo's was wonderful. This place is gorgeous summer or winter so if you are planning either season you will not be disappointed. The hotel has some great areas for photo's or take them outside to the village. We couldn't have been happier with how the day went. WE LOVED OUR WEDDING DAY here & you will too!

    Sun Peaks's reply:

    Thank you so much Carly & Bruce for such great feedback and mentioning Chef Rob and his hardworking culinary team! The Sun Peaks Grand Hotel & Conference Center was delighted to host your cozy winter wedding and hope to see you in the near future!
