Mountain Weddings

When most people think of having their wedding out of the area they live in they picture a beach or tropical island setting. Today, more and more couples are choosing Mountain Weddings. Mountain weddings offer a change of pace, stunning settings, fresh air and the opportunities for gorgeous photographs. A beautiful mountain setting makes for a spectacular outdoor wedding.

Mountain Wedding Tips

When traveling out of the area to have your wedding, you should seriously consider hiring a coordinator! Planning a wedding is a big enough task in itself. Planning one for a destination location is an even bigger challenge. Using a professional local wedding planner will save you much time and stress.

Look for a planner that specializes in the area you are getting married in. They will already know which wedding vendors are of the highest quality and offer the best pricing. If you can find one, opt for a wedding package/planning company that will put together an entire mountain wedding package for you.

Canadian Rockies

A Canadian Rockies wedding has many attractions, although the appeal for most couples is the romance of being together, far away from home, relaxing in a majestic beautiful environment with the promise of much adventure. There are lots of reasons to chose a Canadian Rockies Wedding--and Banff National Park being one of them. Banff National Park, in Alberta, is a year round playground in the Canadian Rockies wilderness, explorable in many modes, by ski, bus, car, canoe, raft, sleigh to name a few.

The weather in the Canadian Rockies is variable due to the high elevation and rugged topography. Cool, crisp air and warm days are typical of autumn in the Canadian Rockies. The summer climate is pleasant with low humidity, warm temperatures and daylight hours stretching until 11pm. Winters are spectacular, clear blue skies and glistening powder snow result in picture postcard views all over the area. Any time of year is perfect for a Canadian Rockies Wedding!

Smoky Mountain Weddings, by Lakefront Cabins

Couple the beautiful natural chapel of the Smokey Mountains with the relatively minor requirements for getting married and you understand why a Smokies wedding and honeymoon is second in popularity only to Las Vegas. Couples can be joined in holy matrimony in a chapel, the National Park, or the privacy of their cottage or cabin.

Experience the most important moment in your lifetime, with your family and friends right by your side. Why rent an impersonal chapel or banquet hall, when you can accommodate everyone at your own private 40 acre Smoky Mountain Retreat?

One cabin can handle it all: the ceremony, the reception, the caterers and dozens of guests. Wedding planners are available to make all of your arrangements. Save yourself time & money and rent one place that can host the entire event!

Imagine your wedding party moving out to the 2000 square foot deck to witness a colorful wrap-around Smoky Mountain Sunset while dancing the night away under the stars.

There are numerous chapels, cabins and outdoor wedding locations to accommodate your Smoky Mountain wedding.

Teton Weddings, by Teton Mountain Weddings

Imagine standing beside a pristine lake, marrying your one true love, surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Tetons. Or plan a romantic trek back to the days of the Old West with a weathered, historic barn as your wedding backdrop.

Did you ever think a bison or a moose might come to your wedding?

Maybe your style is to enjoy wonderful Jackson Hole by Jeep... or backpacking together in the wilderness. Say "I do" from a bridge with a mountain stream tumbling over rocks below. From windswept peaks to aspen meadows, our scenic vistas will make your wedding photographs unlike any others. No matter what your preference, the Tetons offer a myriad of locations to have your wedding.

Some local activities include:

  • Horseback riding
