Although my wife and I had driven through Canmore a couple of times (1982 and 2004), we had never even stopped in the rush between its more famous neighbours of Banff National Park and Calgary. However, when our youngest daughter Carolyn and her finacee, Ryan, decided that it was time to get married, we finally got a chance to sample a bit of what life is like there, as well as our first winter experiences in the Rocky Mountains! The location of their chosen site, the Bear & Bison Canadian Country Inn, located on the valley walls overlooking Canmore was perfect and all the arrangements went very smoothly for this small family wedding. Who would have thought that an outdoor, evening wedding in the Rocky Mountains during the depths of a Canadian winter could be this good!!??

    What gorgeous pics. I used to live in Canmore and it is one of the most spectacular places in the world. The mountain views are everchanging.

    What incredible luck with the weather and quite a choice of places to tie the knot. The Inn sounds fabulous. About the only thing missing is a brewery!
