For up to 20 people
Dates we host elopements at Lake Louise: We are able to do weddings year-round from Monday to Thursday, with the exception of July and August. The summer months and weekends are too busy with tourists.
Lake Louise is well-known around the world for its blue lake and stunning Chateau Lake Louise. We use a spot near the lake with the hotel in the background for our elopements.
Your package includes the officiant, photographer, and the licenses to have an elopement at Lake Louise. Approximately 15 minutes of your package will be your ceremony with the remaining 45 minutes for photos of the two of your (and your guests if you wish).
• How many people can we bring? Are kids included in the count?
You can have up to 20 people in this location (this includes the two of you, the wedding party, children, etc). It's a National Park rule that we can only have 20 people at Banff National Park ceremonies.
• What is the option for rain?
We guarantee at least three clear umbrellas for the couple and the officiant to use. This way the photos look cohesive and amazing. Weddings go ahead rain or shine. There is not an indoor option for Moraine Lake
• What dates are available?
We will host elopements at Lake Louise year-round.... EXCEPT for July and August and only on Monday to Thursday. We stay away from the area in July-August and on weekends due to the sheer volume of tourists during those times.
• Is this location good for strollers and wheelchairs?
Yes. Although there is a little incline to push wheelchairs up, it's doable.
• Can we arrive separately and not see each other before the ceremony?
• How is parking at Lake Louise
There is paid public parking if you are not staying at the Chateau Lake Louise. This is the responsibility of you and your guests to pay.
• Do you have recommendations for accommodation?
Absolutely! We can help you with all of this after you book and we begin to plan your celebration! We suggest you stay at Lake Louise. There are many hotels in the area besides the Chateau Lake Louise.
• Can we have decor or an arch?
At Lake Louise, we use nature as our backdrop and our ceremonies are standing only. Because they are short and simple, it makes sense to focus on the vows and the incredible views the area has to offer. We do not allow decor or arches at this location.
• Banff National Park Pass
Everyone who enters a National Park in Canada must pay for a park pass. Banff National Park is the same. The entrance to the National Park is just after you pass the town of Canmore and you and your guests are responsible for this cost. You can purchase in advance online, or at the gates when you enter Banff National Park. Prices range from $10.50/adult to $21/family.
