A ROCKY MOUNTAIN WEDDING VENUE THAT’S CLOSER TO HEAVEN

WITH PRICING AND ATTENTIVENESS THAT’S DOWN TO EARTH

Whether you lean towards the elaborate or prefer a more intimate gathering, Castle Mountain Resort is the perfect venue for a memorable wedding in the mountains. Tucked away in the Canadian Rockies, at the literal end of the highway, there’s a sense of seclusion and exclusivity you’ll get at Castle that just isn’t possible in Banff or Canmore. 

Our team is committed to ensuring one of the biggest days of your life is an exceptional one. Castle Mountain Resort prides itself on being an affordable Rocky Mountain wedding destination with a spacious reception venue, excellent food / beverage services, and plenty of on-site accommodations. 

Ceremony Site

Nestled amongst lush greenery and an impressive, mountainous backdrop our ceremony site will take your breath away. Enjoy picturesque views of Barnaby Ridge as you say your vows, sharing the experience with your closest and dearest. You and your guests will first enjoy the short, peaceful nature walk along the mowed Yeti Trail with less abled individuals able to take a ride in our ceremony site shuttle.

Once you reach the outlook, you’ll be greeted not only by stunning scenery but also by a fully set ceremony site (chairs, marriage table, PA system upon request). Simply add your arch, small touches of décor, and we’ll look after the rest.

Seating Capacity: 200

Reception Venue

Our reception space within the Day Lodge boasts an abundance of natural light, with a wonderful rustic feel. Wonderfully suited to groups of 75 – 200, the east end of our day lodge is most often set with reception tables while the west end features the dancefloor, a stage, and open space for mixing and mingling – most often during a cocktail hour period.

Enjoy a high-quality dinner under the warmth of our string lights and grab a reasonably priced beverage from the bar. Don’t be afraid to bust a move on our dance floor!

Seating Capacity: 200

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there a capacity limit?

We consider our maximum capacity, for both ceremonies and receptions, as 200 persons.

How do I go about booking accommodation for my wedding?

A number of accommodation options are available at Castle Mountain Resort – from RV camping to stunning vacation homes. The only accommodation bookings we handle directly are for RV camping (click for more info).

For all other accommodations, we suggest visiting our lodging page (click for more info) so you can become familiar with some of the partner options, within our village.

Do you have a food and/or beverage minimum or a minimum per person spend?

Castle Mountain Resort enforces a $4000 – $5000 minimum food order for all reception events. A $4000 minimum applies to receptions on Friday or Sunday and a $5000 minimum applies to all events booked on Saturday. Our knowledgeable Events Coordinator will be able to help you understand what and how much food you should consider ordering.

Food and beverage, with the exception of water, is not permitted on our ceremony site. Therefore, there is no food and/or beverage minimum imposed upon ceremony only bookings.

What happens if it rains?

For guests electing to make a ceremony & reception booking, the west end of the reception area (dance floor / cocktail area) commonly acts as a space for ceremonies, in the event of rain.

For guests electing to pursue a ceremony only booking, if it rains on your special day there is little that we will be able to do except for pushing the time ahead or behind, should availability exist. Outdoor ceremonies are subject to the whims of mother nature and only guests who have booked their ceremony and reception with us will be guaranteed indoor space, for their ceremony, in the event of inclement weather.

What is the accessibility like?

Our ceremony site is fairly remote making it a bit difficult for people with limited mobility. However, Castle Mountain does offer a shuttle for those in need of a ride to the ceremony spot. Any further questions regarding site accessibility can be answered by our Events Coordinator.

Our reception venue is fully accessible.

What months of the year can weddings take place?

Weddings can be held annually starting May long weekend until October thanksgiving weekend.

Generally, Castle Mountain Resort does not entertain weddings outside of this period, especially in winter. Winter exceptions can be made for exceptionally small groups (40 and under).

What type of bar services do you offer?

CASH BAR –

In a cash bar scenario, each guest must pay for their drinks on an individual basis. Guests can pay through debit, credit (Visa or Mastercard), or cash.

TOONIE BAR* –

Guests will be charged $2 per drink or $4 in the case of a request for a double. The remaining balance associated with each drink will be routed to a master tab which will be invoiced to the bride / groom at the culmination of the event. Guests can pay with debit, credit (Visa or Mastercard), or cash.

DOUBLE TOONIE BAR* –

Guests will be charged $4 per drink or $8 in the case of a request for a double. The remaining balance associated with each drink will be routed to a master tab which will be invoiced at the culmination of the event. Guests can pay with debit, credit (Visa or Mastercard), or cash.

DRINK TICKETS* –

Guests will be supplied with tickets to hand the bartender, in exchange for a beverage of their choosing (no payment required by the guest). Tickets are usually limited to 2-3 per person. Only drink tickets redeemed will be charged to the master tab (IE: if you distributed 250 drink tickets and only 210 were redeemed, only 210 drinks will be billed out).

HOST BAR* –

Often confused with open bar – the host is to pay the bar tab on drinks that have been consumed. Drinks served are tracked so that accurate invoicing can / does occur. You only pay for what is actually consumed.

 

*Please note that a deposit, in the expected total amount of the tab, is required for this service prior to the start of the event.

A combination of the service styles above is possible. It is not uncommon, as an example, for a toonie bar to be in effect for a cocktail hour period with a cash bar to be in effect after that period of time. It is requested that service style changes be time based (IE: toonie bar from 5 PM to 6:30 PM and cash bar thereafter) and not based on a dollar amount. Castle Mountain Resort will not guarantee bar service cut-offs, based on dollar amounts.
