Banff wedding is fantastic! We are so love in this magic gem hidden in Canadian Rockies, we had our own wedding here.

We had a simple, small and casual ceremony in May at Central Park Gazebo by the Banff Bow River.

Our original plan was at Hoodoo Viewpoint where you have spectacular views of the Tunnel Mountain, The Bow River, Mt. Rundle, and Banff Springs Hotel.

But it was rain at the last minute, so that we change the location with recommendation from our marriage commissioner Mr. Rick Kunelius.

My husband found Mr. Rick Kunelius online. He is very friendly and cheerful, helpful person, and have a sense of humor.

After ceremony, the rain stopped, then we were heading to Bow River, Banff Springs Golf Course etc. for our wedding photos. Our photographer is one of our best friends.

We had our wedding cake and dinner at a very good Italian restaurant on Banff Avenue which was unfortunately closed down years ago.

We enjoyed staying in first-class cozy and woodsy Banff Buffalo Mountain Lodge.

My in-laws family members (4 of them) stayed in one of the fully equipped kitchen two-bed room loft suites of Tunnel Mountain Resort Banff, which is crossing street of Buffalo Mountain Lodge. They wished they could stay longer.

My brother was satisfied to stay in a room with mountain view balcony in Park Lodge Banff , which is 4 star-full service and has good value for the money.
