We are so beyond thrilled to present a highly anticipated little side project we've been working on.

The JYW Venue Guide to the Mountains. This will be the first of many upcoming venue guides lovingly curated by our team. If you are newly engaged and have started your venue search, you’ve probably realized that researching venues is indeed a time consuming process, especially when you’re not familiar with the area.  Getting responses from venue coordinators can sometimes take weeks. Plus, there is that nagging feeling you haven’t found the “hidden gem” you’re hoping exists…

Well, here it is – The one stop shop you were looking for.

Over 66 pages, we will walk you through 23 amazing wedding venues in the Canadian Rocky Mountains accessed from the YYC airport.

Our goal with this Venue Guide Is to share our local knowledge combined with over 10 years of expertise in planning exquisite weddings, in order to save you from countless hours of research and wasting your time at disappointing site visits, especially ones you’ve flown in for.

This guide will provide you with a curated list of our favourite character-driven spaces, including capacities for each room, pricing details to help you set your budget, and most importantly, our unbiased insight on what makes each property stand out.

That’s right – We literally give you the pros and cons, and provide a list spaces we’d actually trust with our own events. This is not a list of every ballroom that exists between Calgary and Revelstoke. This is a list of our favourites spaces we feel are worth considering for an elevated wedding experience, with a little insider knowledge of what makes it unique or a heads up on some of the fine print you’d only know through experience.

This will be your jumping off point to create a short list of venues that you want to explore further, giving you confidence in your options based on your guest size and ideal budget. Each venue is linked to the company website, further easing your search & saving you time. Plus, every guide includes helpful resources to further support you throughout this process:

FAQ Section answering the most important questions before being able to choose a venue – Such as how much to budget, when to book, and more. This FAQ section is like a miniature consult, answering all the questions you didn’t know you had.

Printable Venue Tour Checklist to bring along your venue site tours, arming you with all the questions you should be asking when you visit the space. It’s the literal checkbox to ensure you’ve covered all your bases and made the most of your tour.

Delivery of this guide is immediate to your inbox, so you can start planning your wedding right away. So if you are reading this at 1:00am and feeling discouraged that you haven’t found that perfect fit – You stumbled on this page for a reason, and this link will be a game changer.

Also – If you buy this guide, we would absolutely love to hear your feedback. Feel free to send us an email, reach out over Instagram, or message us through the contact sheet. As this is a new product launch, we cannot wait to hear how our little baby is doing in the world and how it’s helped you, or you think improvements can be made to shine even brighter.

Thanks for taking the time to get here, we love you for it. Best of luck!
