This BC wedding venue offers you the rustic and intimate wedding you've always dreamed of. The itinerary for your magical day takes advantage of the resort's majestic Rocky views and romantic lodge venues. Ceremonies are held at the Eagle's Eye Terrace.

This terrace overlooks the mountains and gives guests an incredible 360-degree view of the Purcell, Selkirk, and Rocky mountain ranges. A view like this will be the perfect backdrop for the best Calgary wedding photographer to capture your wedding photos.

Guests are brought up to the terrace at 7,700 feet by the Golden Eagle Express Gondola. The terrace can hold up to 200 guests and your wedding party will have private use of the terrace for an hour.

Outdoor weddings are dependent on the weather. If the mountaintop weather is not suitable for the wedding, you can delay the service or accommodations will be made to move the ceremony indoors.
