There are few places on the planet that hold the stunning allure and captivating beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Nestled amongst these soaring, scenic peaks, the picturesque townsites of Banff, Canmore, and Lake Louise draw couples from across the country and around the world to celebrate their big day against the rugged backdrop of the Rockies.
That said, we know that planning even a local wedding can be stressful enough – never mind trying to coordinate catering, cake deliveries, and calla lily arrangements from half a world away!
Don’t worry, though – we’ve got you covered. That’s where our team at Rocky Mountain Weddings & Events comes in.
Owned and operated by Lindsay Copeland, Rocky Mountain Weddings & Events is the longest established wedding planning business in Banff. Accompanied by lead planner and partner-in-crime Kristin Nicol, we seek to provide couples with a singularly modern wedding experience, marrying the sophistication of upscale event planning with the rugged beauty and natural wonder of the Rocky Mountains.
There’s something to be said for hiring local.
Whatever your concept, vision, or nuptial-related dream, Rocky Mountain Weddings & Events is ready to make it all a memorable, one-of-a-kind reality. With an inherent familiarity that comes only from years spent living and working in the Bow Valley, Lindsay and Kristin are prepared with the local knowledge, vendor connections, and mountain-specific experience required to ensure your big day isn’t just special, but effortless and stress-free as well.
From the Bison Restaurant to the Banff Springs Hotel and from the peak of Sulphur Mountain to the pulchritude of Storm Mountain Lodge, Rocky Mountain Weddings & Events will help you plan the perfect day – whatever your taste, style, or aptitude for hiking might be.
The Canadians Rockies are nearly synonymous with Banff in the minds of most folks, but there’s so much more out here to explore and discover beyond our world-famous mountain town. Head just 19 minutes east of Banff and you’ll encounter the rustic town of Canmore – a beautiful Bow Valley locale watched over by the soaring peaks of the Three Sisters and offering an unparalleled Rocky Mountain experience.
Keep driving past Canmore and you’ll find yourself in Kananaskis Country: a vast mountain playground spanning thousands of square kilometers of rugged vistas, rocky peaks, and rustic splendour. There are few tourist attractions and even fewer crowds to be found in K-Country – just untouched wilderness and natural beauty that goes on for literally as far as the eye can see.
Commit to your eastward journey and you’ll encounter Cochrane – Alberta’s very own home-on-the-range featuring western trappings, ranches abound, and an authentic foothills aesthetic, all situated against the majestic backdrop of the nearby Rocky Mountain range.
Leave Banff headed out in the other direction and it won’t be long before you discover Lake Louise – home to the iconic Chateau Lake Louise, the stunning turquoise-green waters of Lake Louise itself, and some of the best skiing and snowboarding this side of the Rockies.
Drive further west and you’ll make your way out of the Bow Valley and across the provincial border into British Columbia where you’ll encounter Emerald Lake, Golden, and Revelstoke to name just a few of the beautiful BC towns along the way – or, head north, and you’ll sooner or later hit Jasper, the biggest national park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Stunning vistas await around every bend here in the Bow Valley – and Rocky Mountain Weddings & Events can’t wait to help you discover each and every one of them.
Ask anyone who’s made the walk down the aisle and they’ll tell you: the big day goes by in a flash. Emotions are high, love is in the air, and as exciting as it all is, you’ll want nothing more than to slow it all down and capture every beautiful, picture-perfect moment.
You focus on that first dance. Let us handle the memory-making.
