Nice Places to get married in Fernie?

I am from Red Deer, Alberta and looking to get married in Interior BC next summer. Hoping for any ideas of where to go.

We don't want to long of a drive for our guests in Alberta (8 hours MAX.)

WE are interested in having the ceremony outside on a lake, orchard, etc. Any recommendations of golf courses, winerys, lodges, reasturants or halls would be greatly appreciated!!

Have attended a "full first class wedding" at Fairmont - great food, at that time + overall good experience. New American ownership paid huge bucks for entire resort - have no idea of what you/your guests would anticipate; definitely different for all who attend.

Cranbrook - Fort Steele is 15kms out of town; absolutely incredible scenery; it's a crime that Colnel Baker bribed the CPR to bring the rail to Cranbrook vs. Fort Steele (would of been top three in B.C. for it's remarkable beauty).

http://www.fortsteele.ca/ - unsure as to ability of "Hotel" to cater a meal, there?

Good friends could offer you a small and intimate setting at their B&B; http://www.jandjemery.ca/

- unsure as to catering; "good people" have done various sized weddings. . . incredible vistas.

- get married here and rent one of the Hotel ball rooms for reception? Give your guests any option they want for place to stay in terms of hotel or ?? costs?

Lizard Creek Lodge in Fernie offers an excellent venue for a wedding. Their food is excellent. They have a beautiful great room in the main lobby with access to the patio and mountain views. The accommodations are among the best in town.

we had friends do the incredible and have a 'Mountain Top' wedding in Fernie at Fernie Alpine Resort. We drove up from Montana and found the setting absolutely amazing. From what we gather from the smiles on our friends faces they covered all of trhe other important details- food, catering and lodging. Certainly the views made it a very special wedding. good luck!

If thinking about getting married in Fernie, the Stanford Resort hosts smaller groups up to 150. The hotel is located on the edge of the Elk River and is surrounded by views of the mountains. They have a variety of room types and condo types.

Check out the Stanford Resort in Fernie. It's less than 5 hours drive from Red Deer.

You musr check out Island Lake Lodge, just a few minutes out of Fernie, beyond the Fernie provincial Park. Nice lodge, good cuisine, lake, surrounded by mountains and old growth rain forest.

If you're set on Fernie I agree with previous comments, Lizard Creek is nice (no lake but nice setting for guests!) I don't think you can beat Island Lake Lodge for sheer beauty (no idea what their cost is). If you want something really close Nakoda Lodge just West of Calgary is nice! My neice got married there last August and it was incredible. Service was by the lake, lodge overlooks lake and wonderful food, and after the dance, etc, (1:00 am) they lit a big campfire and we could go as long as we wanted! You have the option of staying in rooms or teepees (great for teens,etc)! It's not super posh or fancy but the cost might reflect that too! Good luck!
