A Rocky Mountain Wedding

Spectacular Mountain Weddings at Island Lake Lodge

10 miles from town, 1000 miles from civilization

Located just outside the small mountain town of Fernie B.C, Island Lake Lodge is situated within 7,000 acres of private, pristine wilderness. Guests travel through Mount Fernie Provincial Park, up a backcountry road and through an old growth forest with 800-year-old Cedar, Spruce & Douglas Fir. They find themselves removed from civilization as they arrive at this unique backcountry lodge with 360-degree views of the Rocky Mountains and famous Lizard Range. 

The stunning log accommodation and dining lodges are built from large wooden beams featuring picture windows, wood burning fireplaces and spacious decks with views of the Lizard Range.  Being at the Lodge is reminiscent of a quiet, peaceful cabin in the woods with no TV’s or phones to distract from the scenic surroundings. Guests staying at the lodge can take advantage of the hiking and biking trails or walk to the lake to canoe or fly fish. For relaxation and rejuvenation, the Spa offers multiple treatments; followed with a cup of locally hand-crafted tea in the rustic outdoor space or in the serene relaxation room

The wedding ceremony is by the lake at the truly magical “I Dew Point”.  With a long wooden boardwalk leading to the stage and the stunning Lizard Mountain Range as a backdrop, there is no need to worry about additional decorations. Guests enjoy the fresh air and big views and should not be surprised to spot eagles, bears or moose during their stay.

The restaurant offers an unforgettable, personalized 3-course fine dining experience for the reception dinner. Meals are hosted in one of the log cabin restaurants each with windows overlooking the Rocky Mountains. During warm evenings guests can go out on the spacious deck for fresh air while on colder evenings be warmed by the large wood-burning fireplace.

There are endless photo opportunities at Island Lake Lodge - the surrounding Rocky Mountains, old growth forest, mountain lake, and log lodges. With the large range of unique terrain and buildings a photographer has endless options to capture the day. Island Lake Lodge specializes in boutique weddings - couples looking for an authentic and classic mountain wedding experience with a touch of luxury. The unique wilderness surroundings hidden in the Rocky Mountains creates a perfect backdrop for your special day.
