Lake Louise Weddings
Lake Louise offers one of the most spectacular wedding backdrops in the Rockies. Located 30 minutes west of Banff, Lake Louise is a small village, home to one of Canada’s top notch ski resorts. Overlooking the Lake sits the spectacular Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. In the summer the Chateau’s lakefront terrace provides an idyllic ceremony location. In the winter the frosty lake is a perfect backdrop to a winter wonderland wedding. Lake Louise is also home to rustic Deer Lodge, and the warm cozy Post Hotel & Spa. You’re also a stone’s throw away from Moraine Lake (talk about a postcard location!), and one of our favourite elopement venues, Storm Mountain Lodge. Your guests will enjoy world class skiing and dog sledding in the winter, and unlimited hiking and canoeing in the summer.
The ‘vibe’ of it: Lake Louise is all about the amazing mountain views, both at the Lake and also down the road at Moraine Lake. It can get fairly busy for this reason. There’s limited dining and shopping, but you’re not really there for that, are you?
