One of my favourite places to photograph weddings in Banff is Buffalo Mountain Lodge. It's also where I suggest people stay on vacation when they ask me because I love that you truly feel like you are staying in the mountains. There are wood burning fireplaces in every room and an outdoor hot tub open year round.

Directly behind Buffalo Mountain Lodge is Tunnel Mountain Reservoir which you can book through the Town of Banff. It's my favourite outdoor ceremony spot in Banff with stunning mountain views and a very private feeling. Guests can just walk over from the lodge.

The Wapiti Longhouse pictured below accommodates up to 99 people and consists of two levels with this room above and a wine cellar below that is used for hosting your cocktail hour. Guests can enjoy the decks with mountain views.
