Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site

1 to 55 Guests


Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site is a wedding venue located in Edmonton, Alberta. This period-style property stands out among the beautiful surroundings of the North Saskatchewan River, just south of the city’s downtown area. A stylish, vintage setting, it would suit a range of diverse and unforgettable festivities.

Facilities and Capacity

The eye-catching Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site would be ideal for intimate occasions. The maximum capacity for this venue is approximately 56 people, making it suitable for occasions with your nearest and dearest. Ceremonies are welcome to take place here, and low-key events would certainly be most appropriate. Considering the large windows that let in ample natural light, the Sun Porch would be suitable for the “I do” event as two people join together in matrimony. Elopements or simple celebrations could easily take place here. Indeed, it is easy to see how one of the other rooms could be suitably arranged to accommodate a commemoration of love and commitment. Owing to the luxurious and graceful style of the decor and architecture, photo opportunities could easily be enjoyed indoors as everyone relaxes into the special nature of the day. Indeed, the couple and the rest of the wedding party could assemble at the front of the house. Here, those all-important group photos can take place with the house forming an attention-grabbing backdrop.

The cocktail hour can take place in any number of rooms as everyone flits from one space to the next. For the grand reception, the dining room would certainly be a fitting place to enjoy a sit-down meal. Here, the couple can wine and dine with their distinguished invitees as the day melds into the late evening. Champagne flutes can be raised here as heartfelt words are delivered and new memories are created.

Services Offered

An event-planning service is available for those who require assistance bringing their big-day vision to life. Event enhancements such as chairs, tables, decor, lighting, dinnerware, barware, and more can all be provided. This ensures that each occasion is given worthy add-ons, including a wow-inducing chocolate fountain. Currently, any and all catering must be through external vendors. Access to a modern kitchen for onsite preparation is a possibility.


The history of Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site stretches back several decades. Alexander Cameron Rutherford, an influential political figure and lawyer, used this as his family homestead from 1911 for a considerable amount of time. It played host to many gatherings and social events over the years and today it is an ideal place for wedding get-togethers.
