Here are some of our favorite Jasper Wedding Venues
(in no particular order)
#1. The Jasper Park Lodge
We love Jasper Park Lodge or JPL because it feels like our second home. After photographing over 300 weddings there over the years we know the property intimately. They can easily host an elopement of 2 people or a large wedding celebration of up to 500 people. JPL offers the most variety for both indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception venues. Whether you are looking for the vast openness of the Whister Plateau or the quaintness of a sundeck, you can’t go wrong with Jasper Park Lodge. Their onsite wedding coordinators are second to none and they will look after your every need.
We are a preferred supplier on the Jasper Park Lodge Wedding Page.
#2. The Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre
This Jasper wedding venue is our favorite for receptions. The set-up of their basement is perfect as it allows you to have your cocktail reception outside the dinner reception and then you can reveal your beautiful room once the doors are open. It is also a fantastic room to make your grand entrance as newlyweds. The crystal chandelier adds warmth and elegance to the room and the easily accessible slide screen makes showing a slide show viewable to your guests from the comfort of their tables. From a photographer’s point of view, this is a dream venue to photograph a reception in. It also has a fantastic dance floor for you to cut loose on. The Chief Paul Ballroom can hold up to 250 guests.
#3. The Athabasca Day Use area
Locally known as the airfield, this Jasper wedding venue booked through Parks Canada has become one of the most popular outdoor locations. It is absolutely beautiful and easy to access. It is about a 10-minute drive East of Jasper and has bench seating for up to 120 people. There are 3-time slots available to book throughout the day. It offers many locations to take photos of family and the wedding party after the ceremony. It is one of the few locations booked through Parks Canada that is private as well as very reasonable in cost to book. One thing to keep in mind is that there can be a lot of mosquitoes at times, so come prepared!
#4. Pyramid Lake Resort
Oh Pyramid Lake Resort, what beautiful mountain and lake views you offer! This is one of Jasper’s most popular wedding reception venues all year round. You have the choice of the Columbia room for smaller weddings and the Pines Dining Room which holds up to 70 guests comfortably. Not only are the views stunning, but the food is also amazing here too. If you have a huge dancing crown, this venue might not be your best choice.
#5. Jasper Inn and Suites
This reception venue is often overlooked but is really a little hidden gem. Located upstairs at the Jasper Inn, it offers a private room that can hold up to 50 guests comfortably. It offers a full-service bar and a hardwood dance floor. Head chef Toby offers some of the best short ribs in Jasper. They also have an outdoor terrace that is available in the summer for small weddings. We have not photographed many weddings here, but feel that it is certainly worthy of being considered as a beautiful Jasper wedding venue.
#6. The Overlander Mountain Lodge
While not located in Jasper, it is just a short 30-minute drive and well worth checking out if you are looking for a unique and intimate setting. We just love the atmosphere, the staff, and the FOOD! The Stone Peak Restaurant has won several awards over the years for their wine and food and they never fail to deliver on this front. We have photographed many weddings here over the years and always enjoy the staff as well as the intimacy of the main lodge. If you are looking for a truly unique mountain wedding with amazing food and wine, look no further.
How To Select Your Perfect Jasper Wedding Venue
1. Venue Size
Look at how many people you’re planning to invite to your wedding versus the number of people the venue can comfortably cater for. A crowded reception can be quite uncomfortable and if a venue is too large, it can affect the atmosphere and the overall look and feel. Put an initial guest list together before you start venue shopping so that you can make a better decision. Both The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and The Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre can host large weddings, while Pyramid Lake Lodge and the Jasper Inn are better suited for more intimate weddings.
2. Liquor Licensing
Alcohol and drinks are a big part of your wedding so it’s important to find out whether you can bring your own alcohol and what the costs are or if the wedding venue will supply the drinks. Since you will also need a licensed bartender to serve alcohol, find out whether the venue can assist with this so that you can factor those costs into your final budget.
3. Local Vendors
You’re going to be working with several different vendors in the time leading up to and on your wedding day. Many venues will recommend the best local vendors that have experience working in Jasper. Find out about this before you make a decision on who you are going to hire. If they do work with specific vendors, make sure that you’re happy with their experience, style, personality, and pricing. When a venue works with preferred vendors, it does mean they’re confident in their experience and ability to deliver but it’s more important for you to choose vendors that fit in with your budget and overall preferences.
