Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if there is inclement weather the day of our event?

Weather in Alberta is unpredictable, and although hosting an outdoor wedding is often the most beautiful choice, it does come with a certain amount of risk.   In the event of severe inclement weather, we can provide a tent that can be used as a protective shelter to host the outdoor ceremony portion*.

*At our discretion – and may incur an additional cost.

Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

Our venue is wheelchair accessible, but please keep in mind we are in the country and there is no concrete (grass and gravel landscaping), making it a little harder to navigate in.

Do you offer overnight camping?

We do not offer any overnight stays, however we are happy to provide contact information on several campgrounds within a 5-10 minute drive from us including the Pigeon Lake Provincial Campground which rents out urts for a different camping experience.  In addition, we are a mere 15 minute drive to the Country Inn at the Village of Pigeon Lake.

Absolutely!  We encourage everyone to book a tour by emailing

Can we supply our own decorations?

Although we supply a variety of rustic, elegant décor pieces, we want your day to have your own personal touch! If you have a specific color or décor item you would like included, just ensure we have it on hand several days prior to your event, and we will set up the décor you provide.

Do we offer the horse and carriage option as shown?

This is considered an ‘extra’ with an additional cost, however we work closely with a local vendor who offers horse drawn carriage rides.  If interested, we can confirm availability and specific costs related to your event.
