Wedding in the Country

IMG_0161IMG_0218If you have been searching for a truly unique and romantic setting for your wedding, you have just found the right place. This beautiful traditional prairie church and provincial heritage site will be a magical setting for your Christian wedding.

The intimate romantic setting will make lasting memories of your special day, personalized to meet your dreams. We know that you are a unique couple and we honour your decision to have a wedding that is truly your own creation, the wedding of your dreams.

The church was built in 1919. It contains the original hand carved pews and features an upright piano and electric organ. The sanctuary can be decorated as you wish, brides choose lace, ribbon, silk flowers, or more modern wheat, grasses or feathers (pew bows are available). You are free to add flowers and the accessories of your choice. The sanctuary seats 150 people comfortably, and is accessible to those with mobility challenges.  Up to 200 guests can be accommodated by opening up the  side rooms and the balcony.

Weddings are done on a first come, first served basis. The fee for the use of the church for your wedding ceremony is $500, this includes up to two hours of decorating/rehearsal time. A $100 deposit is required to reserve the date and time of your ceremony. The fees include a minister, although you are welcome to bring your own for the same fee. We will provide you with a wedding co-ordinator for the rehearsal and ceremony, who can answer your questions and assist to ensure the smooth running of your day. We also have a modern sound-system allowing you to play your own CD/DVD/MP3 music as background, procession/recession, and soloist accompaniment. The grounds have lots of great places for photos.

The church is very easy to find. It is located 16 km east of Airdrie on Hwy 567, about 30 minutes from the City of Calgary.
