Emerald Lake Weddings
Emerald Lake isn’t actually a town, it’s a lake with one beautiful resort, Emerald Lake Lodge. It’s located 16km up the road from Field, but that town is pretty darn small too. If your fairytale wedding includes renting your own island in the mountains, you’ve come to the right place! Emerald Lake is a true getaway with no televisions, no wifi and (gasp) no cell service. Treat your guests to luxurious accommodations (each room has a wood burning fireplace and private balcony), fantastic food, and an amazing weekend away they’ll never forget. If you’re eloping, there’s also a lesser known resort, Cathedral Mountain Lodge. They don’t host weddings per-say, but the rustic and beautiful cabins would be the perfect place to stay after a cozy elopement in the woods!
The ‘vibe’ of it: This is going to sound cheesy, but crossing over the bridge to the island almost feels a bit magical. There are lots of tourists during the day, but at night it’s wonderfully quiet. This is the perfect place to unplug, unwind, breathe the amazing pine air and really enjoy nature.
