    Emilie D'Amours handled our reception at the Fairmont Banff Springs for our small wedding in May of 2017. We had eloped with immediate family to Canada from Texas site unseen. Emilie was amazing start to finish! The hotel staff and service were amazing apart from the spa however, Emilie went above and beyond to make our wedding day PERFECT! The reception was perfect, dinner and cake tasted AMAZING!! Highly recommend!

    Amazing venue

    It’s expensive but worth it. The mountain view is breath taking. The food was amazing. Everything went mostly smooth. The rooms were incorrect but they fixed it for us. Although they said the outdoor terrace would be private and there was hotel guests outside taking pictures during our wedding and I wasn’t too happy about that.
