According to the experts in the wedding industry, one of the big trends in weddings for 2019/2020 is choosing unique and alternative style venues.

Our “Alternative Wedding Venue” fits right in with the trends!

One 2019 wedding trend that is gaining momentum is the “alternative wedding venue” as couples are looking for something unique. Country Chic settings, Industrial-chic spaces, rooftops, theatres, greenhouses, galleries and brewery style venues are rising in popularity and are definitely worth considering for your big day.

No longer is the typical community centre, banquet hall or hotel the norm. Modern couples are looking for a more expressive wedding experience. Unique venues are in!

Our amazing 145 acres of the most beautiful natural setting anywhere provides a wedding experience unique and unlike any other. How could anything match the beautiful venues (3 or them) the stunning views, the Ghost River running right through the property and so much more. Having your guests join you for the weekend is another new trend and it doesn’t have to mean a faraway destination. We are just 1 hour from downtown Calgary, 15 minutes outside Cochrane, and yet when you enter our property you feel like you are in another world.

The peaceful tranquil surroundings immediately relaxes you. Can you imagine your day in such surroundings? Your guests arriving to enjoy this amazing property with you for the weekend (Our Deluxe or Dream Wedding Weekend Packages), in complete privacy.

Inside and outside activities are there for everyone’s enjoyment. A wonderful hike, a little time sitting down by the river or enjoying our decks that offer stunning views in every direction. Or how about a wonderful visit in our Remington House sitting room, including the beautiful sun room. If the weather is inclement then the social room is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy a game of pool or just relaxing by the fireplace in perfect harmony. A unique and wonderful wedding weekend experience.

Combining Elegance and Country Chic Charm


A little can go a long way in creating the country chic wedding of your dreams. Incorporating our antique furniture pieces into your decor can bring it all together.

Yes, many couples will still go for traditional floral arrangements in 2019, but a fair few are expected to shake things up and opt for alternative decor in their centre pieces and bouquets. Larger arrangements will flaunt cotton branches and pampas plumes. Adding elegance and charm to the already stunning venue.
