Perfect day

We could not have asked for better from Norquay! Everything was done exactly as they said it would be, they were incredibly helpful when it came to set-up and tear-down of the decorations, and Teha really knows her stuff! I found her very knowledgeable and helpful as we planned.

Cannot say enough good things!

Mount Norquay was an absolutely incredible venue for our wedding. Not only was it stunning, but the staff were very helpful, Teha is extremely knowledgeable and a quick communicator, and the cost was reasonable. I will 100% recommend this venue to other brides.

Perfect Stress Free Wedding!

Our day went so seamlessly it was almost unbelievable.... except for the fact that perfection was guaranteed after meeting Teha and her team.
The venue, Teha, and her staff made this special day a dream! Teha was quick to answer every email I sent with helpful advice and reassurance. We showed up for rehearsal with everything in its place and only had to set up the decor. Our outdoor ceremony had all of the chairs already set up and take down was sooo simple, all we had to do was pick up our decor!
Ross and his bartending team were so kind and helpful. The serving staff always made sure we had our glasses full and anything we needed. The shuttles ran right on time and made sure all of our stragglers were aboard at the end of the night. The food was delicious! The steak was so tender I couldn't believe the quality for the number of guests. Nothing but amazing things to say about this venue and team, I could go on forever.
BOOK THEM for your wedding if you want everything to be perfect, on time, and completely stress-free!
Not to mention the stunning views, our photos from up the chairlift are breathtaking!

Amazing venue!

We had the most magical day possible at Norquay. Teha and her team are absolutely incredible. We had such a stress-free time planing our wedding because Teha was there to help and support the whole time. She answered countless questions and was absolutely 100% dedicated to ensuring that WE had an amazing time as well as our guests. Even when things went awry (torrential downpour when we were supposed to get married outside), the Norquay team sprung into action, switched our ceremony site to indoors, and continued to make sure all our guests were comfortable, happy, and well served! The bar staff and servers were also amazing and provided top tier service. The food was also amazing!
Highly recommend getting married at Norquay, we had the time of our life.

Best wedding location!!

We can't even put into words how happy we are with how our wedding day turned out! Due to covid, we had been working with Teha for two years planning this day and she was always very responsive, honest, and helpful. On our wedding day, the team at Mt. Norquay had everything down to perfection - the setup, the food, drinks, shuttle - everything was PERFECT! We experienced the random mountain downpours and as soon as the rain stopped the Norquay team was out on the patio drying all the furniture so guests could be outside.
We are so pleased with our experience and truly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a mountain wedding.

Absolutely amazing

Our wedding was flawless! Teha and the Norquay team were so amazing and flexible for us. Everything we wanted at our wedding they provided. When I got sick between the ceremony and the reception, the staff brought me orange juice and ginger ale! Everyone was so thoughtful and considerate. Totally worth it!!

UNREAL. So glad we chose them!

Teha and the whole Mt Norquay team (especially Linda!) will go above and beyond to make your wedding a dream, and cover every tiny little deal. Two months later, we're still glowing, couldn't imagine having held it anywhere else. Banff is beautiful, the venue is gorgeous, the menus were described as mere guidelines as they let us customize however we wanted, and the food is AMAZING (our guests were beyond impressed... and we had some picky people in attendance). The staff are super friendly and clearly veterans. We had brunch up at the Cliffhouse Bistro a few days before the wedding and realized our waiter there was going to be one of our bartenders鈥攈e ended up bringing us champagne on the house! What a guy (thanks Max!). On the day of, they had an ARMY of bartenders for our 165 guests, and they made plates for our entire head table, which was a godsend. When we initially met Teha, we told her Mt Norquay was the first venue we'd visited so she gave the gave us a full Wedding 101. She clearly knows what she's doing. She's extremely transparent and upfront about costs and will let you know of any anticipated logistical challenges. She gets things done when she says she will, and she understands that you'll likely need a heavy dose of guidance. And she's super cool. We asked if it would be ok to bring in shot-skis because we figured our guests would enjoy getting a bit rowdy Her response, "Why bring them in?? We have two shot-skis here you can use!" Badass. Oh and the day after, we went to collect our stuff (because you don't have to do a full clean-up the night of, which is HUGE), they had everything all nicely organized sitting on the bar for us. Took 5 minutes to toss it in the truck. AND, she graciously tolerated my dad's awful jokes over the course of several months, which must have been absolutely grueling. I assume you don't know my dad but his jokes are complete groaners. Anyway, we appreciate if you actually read all the way down here, we obviously have nothing but the best things to say about Teha and Mt Norquay . If I wasn't a tad worried about identity fraud, I would be very tempted to leave my cell number for anyone who wants to call me to ask questions about Mt Norquay because I would be eager to sing their praises to anyone who would listen. If your mind is made up on Banff, Mt Norquay is head and shoulders (and a literal mountain) above any of the other competing venues. Best of luck!

Best Venue in the Rocky Mountains!

We had our wedding in September 2019 at Mount Norquay, with our ceremony on the deck and our reception in Kika's Cafe. Having previously attended a wedding at Mount Norquay, we already knew what a great venue it was, but hosting our own wedding there we can still say we were so incredibly impressed with every single person we interacted with at Mount Norquay. Teha was amazing to work with from start to finish throughout the planning process. Right at the beginning of the planning process she sent me a few excel files to play around with to see if Mount Norquay's costs were in-line with our budget. As a type A person, I can't tell you how helpful these tools were for staying on track leading up to the day. I also loved how little we needed to bring to the venue decor wise as it was already such a great space.

The staff during the reception were amazing and we felt so taken care of! We absolutely LOVED the food! All of our guests were so impressed by the food and the drinks and the staff! We鈥檝e never had such good poutine too! If you're doing a late night snack, absolutely choose this option. Our guests just demolished it!!! Unreal venue, unreal night.
