    Our dream "destination" wedding come true!

    We'd never heard of the Norland before I met them at a bridal show in Calgary. A gorgeous, affordable, Southern-style mansion just two hours south? Somebody pinch me!

    When told we were having our wedding in Lethbridge, people always asked if we were from there/why Lethbridge. Then I'd whip out my phone and show them this fabulous venue and watch their jaws drop. Needless to say, they understood!

    The estate is stunning, and having the whole event from ceremony to photos and the reception all in one spot made it super convenient. The whole team was a dream to work with. They understood our needs (namely allergies) and worked very hard to ensure they were met. I'd like to specifically shout out Alex, Laura, Kelsea, Trisha, and the owners Dale and Maurine. Our wedding was absolutely perfect.

    I also appreciated the handy list of recommended vendors the Norland had available, making vendor hiring decisions a piece of cake.

    Elegant Garden Party Wedding

    Norland was an excellent location. They are tied to using LA Chefs as the catering because it is owned by LA Chefs. They were up front about fees, but did not factor them in when giving totals unless explicitly asked to do so. They have a strict 2 pm access to the lodgings on location which caused some issues with getting ready there. The getting ready space is very small and dark.
