Choosing where to tie the knot is a difficult choice. There are so many amazing locations out there that it can be difficult to find the perfect Alberta wedding venue.

For lovers of the outdoors who are struggling with how to choose a wedding venue in Alberta, however, there's nothing quite like the beautiful woodsy spaces at Moraine Lake Lodge, which is located next to Moraine Lake.

With sparkling blue waters and majestic mountains just a stone's throw from the lodge, this is the perfect mountain wedding venue. Let's take a look at what a ceremony at this stunning lake wedding venue would look like.

What Makes Moraine Lake Lodge the Perfect Mountain Wedding Venue

The rustic yet modern hotel is made up of several chalets that overlook the stunning water, giving guests a glimpse of the gorgeous Rockies right from their window.

While indoor capacity is fairly limited, the outdoor spaces at the lodge provide you with a glorious backdrop for your wedding. It makes the perfect setting for anyone looking to elope or to have a smaller ceremony.

The Location of Moraine Lake Lodge

Moraine Lake Lodge is located right in the heart of Banff National Park. It's surrounded on all sides by the Rocky Mountains and is close to multiple hikes and boating opportunities.

The closest airport to the Lodge is Calgary International Airport. However, it'll take you about 3 and a half hours to drive from the airport to the lodge, so leave yourself plenty of time for travel.

Dining Options at Moraine Lake Lodge

Moraine Lake Lodge has one formal dining room, the Walter Wilcox Dining Room. This is a great place to bring your guests after the ceremony for a bite to eat.

The dining room has a stunning glass window that looks out onto the lake, giving you and your guests a view while you dine. On top of that, the cuisine at this restaurant has been rated some of the best in all of Banff.

Moraine Lake Lodge Wedding Dinner

It's important to keep in mind that Moraine Lake Lodge only has room for 12 seated people. That makes it an intimate space perfect for private weddings or elopements. Their dinner package is plated, too, making it a fancy table service wedding.

The Rooms at Moraine Lake Lodge

As part of your wedding planning, you'll want to make sure that you book a place to stay. Moraine Lake Lodge offers beautiful woodsy rooms that are complete with a hot tub for you to relax in before or after your big day.

You can either choose from one of the 18 private cabins, 6 Wenkchemna Wing rooms, 8 central lodge rooms, or the Honeymoon Suite. Overflow guests can stay at the Cathedral Mountain Chalet, which is the sister hotel to Moraine Lake Lodge.
