Tunnel Mountain Wedding Package
TUNNEL MOUNTAIN RESERVOIR
$3000 - $3500
For up to 100 people
Do you still want to have a larger guest list, but with little hassle and less cost? We get it. Your people are important and you don’t want to exclude anyone. You may also not want to spend a small fortune on a Banff wedding. This is the perfect package for you! You can have your big, boujie wedding on the cheap….and still, keep all your money in your pocket.
Tunnel Mountain Reservoir is the perfect choice for a private ceremony with street parking. Situated inside the Town of Banff, it has street parking for your guests, and with Buffalo Mountain Lodge right across the street, it’s perfect to just walk over for your ceremony if you choose to rent hotel rooms there. Tunnel Mountain Campground is also close by for those of you wishing to bring RVs.
The beauty of Tunnel Mountain is that you are also able to have a full ceremony set up if you wish. You can rent chairs and decor (as pictured) and have a seated ceremony, unlike the other mountain locations. The cost of renting chairs, an arch, or any decor is extra. You can also have a standing and simple ceremony as well, without any rentals.
The cost includes everything in our normal elopement package, plus the insurance, rental of Tunnel Mountain for two hours, and a coordinator on-site for your two-hour package.
There are two separate prices for Tunnel Mountain. It’s $3000 year-round, EXCEPT for all Fridays and Saturdays in June, July, August, and September. Friday and Saturday during those months are $3500.
Approximately 15 minutes of your package will be spent photographing your ceremony with the remaining 45 minutes for photos with your guests and the two of you.
• How many people can we bring?
You can bring up to 100 people to your Tunnel Mountain wedding.
• 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 no indoor option.
• Can we serve alcohol and food?
No. Although we do allow for fun champagne pops for photos with the couple and a cake cutting if you like.
• What dates are available?
Year-round. Keep in mind that Tunnel Mountain Reservoir books up very quickly for Saturdays from June to October, so book quickly if you are thinking of a weekend date.
• Why is insurance needed at Tunnel Mountain Reservoir?
The Town of Banff requires proof of wedding liability insurance in order to have your wedding at Tunnel Mountain. We pay for and provide this to the Town on your behalf.
• Do you have recommendations for accommodation?
Absolutely! There are several great options in the Tunnel Mountain area for accommodation. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is right across the street and Tunnel Mountain Campground is around the corner.
• Can we bring dogs?
Yes. As long as they are on a leash the entire time.
• Can we go to multiple locations for photos?
Because our photography packages are an hour-long, we have to stay at the spot your ceremony is being held. We want to make sure you get as many incredible photos as we can take, and driving to another location will eat up photography time. Trust us, both locations are amazing and you will love the images you receive.
• Is decor included?
You are more than welcome to rent chairs, an arch, decor, etc. We have a few companies that we love to recommend and they all offer delivery and pickup options, making it easy for you. Shotgun Wedding can provide arch and silk floral rentals and handle all the delivery, setup, take-down, etc when you rent them through us.
• 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.
• How does the deposit work?
We require a 50% deposit in order to secure your spot. We give 24 hours to pay and sign the contract.
