Outside options

The outdoor views are one of the main reasons people gravitate toward the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. The mountains, lakes, and golf greens make it one of the most beautiful natural settings in the world. So it makes sense that you'd prefer to have the ceremony outside with the mountains silhouetted behind you. But it's important to remember that being outside means that you're at the whim of the weather. And in the mountains, weather can be unpredictable.

If you've booked an outdoor ceremony, rest easy knowing that there's a wonderful indoor option if rain threatens. However the call is made at least 3 hours before the event begins on whether to move to the inside option. And once the call is made, it can't be undone if suddenly the skies clear. If you're happy to be outside whatever the weather then great! Staff is happy to join you. But know that certain amenities (like audio-visual technology) might not be an option if it's raining.

Fairmont's on-site wedding specialist can help you make the final decision, but regardless of whatever option you choose, your wedding will be beautiful.

One of the amazing things that makes the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge unique from many hotels in that it has many accommodation options for your wedding attendees. Guests may choose to stay in the main lodge or in one of the many free-standing cabins around the large property. Some of the cabins are cozy abodes and some are luxurious log houses that have hosted British royalty; all are lovely and your guests will enjoy having their own relaxing refuge and a true getaway feeling. In fact, it's recommended that you and your guests stay for a minimum of two nights to really soak up all the wonders that the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and the rest of the national park has to offer.
