Wedding service in the tiny, little-house-on-the-prairie, chapel surrounded by the rolling foothills, with the Rocky Mountains looming in the distance.

Very lovely, well preserved historical church. Not in Banff as many others say. A little off the beaten path if you're heading from Banff to Calgary but worth a stop. It was actually on our way to the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary.

The Memorial United Church is a Gothic Revival church built in 1927. I loved the modified Tudor half-timbering and a locally-quarried stone base. The stained glass windows were interesting showing the founding denominations and biblical scenes.
