Seven Reasons to Host Your Wedding at Keefer Lake Lodge
Congratulations! You just got engaged and now it is time to find a place to say your "I do's". With all of the wedding venue options available in the Okangan, we thought we would share the Top 7 reasons to choose Keefer Lake Lodge as the place to celebrate your wedding.
1. A Private Lodge Located in a Pristine Lakeside Location
When you arrive at our lodge the first thing you will notice is the quite setting. Surrounded by mountains and beside a beautiful mountain lake, the only neighbours we have are furry! You will be immersed in nature but have all the luxuries of our timber-framed lodges and attentive staff. With no one else around you will not be bothered by neighbouring parties or distracting noises. You and your guests will be able to relax, unwind, stretch out and enjoy the privacy of Keefer Lake Lodge.
2. Say Your Vows on the Shores of Keefer Lake
Couples can choose to have their wedding take place on the shores of the lake. We have built a spacious elevated platform to set up your decorations and say your vows. Guest chairs are lined up on the lawn in front of the platform looking out across the lake. The setting is quite something to behold. Your wedding photographer will be in their glory capturing your special moments as you say 'I do" next to the lake.
An addition option is to set up your dining area outside near the lake. The setting couldn't be more stunning! We also have large wedding event tents that can be set up in the case of weather.
3. Wedding Photos in the Alpine Meadows
Imagine yourself at the top of a mountain staring into the eyes of the love of your life. The scenery will overload your senses as your wedding photographer gets to work capturing your dream wedding. Views of the Monashee and Pinnacle Mountain ranges are right out of National Geographic (or a Fairy Tale!). The images you create in the mountains will bring you back to this moment for years and years. Every time you look at them.
4. Remote Location, Easy to Get to
Our lodge is remote and off-the-grid but has easy access from Highway 6. Located about an hour and a half from Vernon and two and a half hours from Kelowna, you can easily drive right to the front door of our lodge. Kelowna is home to the nearest International Airport making it easy for distant travellers to attend your ceremonies. We partner with local tour companies that can accommodate shuttling larger groups.
5. Our Timber Framed Lodges
At Keefer Lake Lodge we have two bespoke lodges nestled on our private lakeside property. Each lodge was specifically designed to maximize the space on the grounds as well as for views and comfort. The Black Bear is our main lodge and is set back on the property featuring tall glass windows and an expansive deck. Our second guest lodge, The Pinnacles, is a short walk down the path and houses more rooms as well as spacious sitting areas. When you are a guest at Keefer Lake Lodge, you have free run of the place. The Black Bear lodge is where our kitchen and dining areas are, our main bar and lounge and when you head downstairs you will find a fully appointed games room. Need some relaxation time? Enjoy our Scandinavian inspired sauna or take a soak in our hot tub.

6. Fresh, Local, Creative Cuisine
Our culinary team knows no boundaries! They are inspired every time there is an event or wedding at the lodge. They are able to accommodate most food requirements getting creative with whatever ingredients they are working with. All of our dining here at Keefer Lake Lodge is influenced by as much local fare as we can find. It is an underlying mission here to support local in everything we do. What does this mean for you? Fresher meal options and the knowledge that you are contributing to the success of the local proprietors of the area.
7. Pair Your Wedding with the Perfect Wine
Toast to your new life together with the perfect wine pairing. We work closely with a handful of the most desirable vineyards in the Okanagan. We can assist you in finding the right wine or connect you with our preferred wineries. We also have an extensive Wine Library that is growing every year. Wine is something core to the culture here at Keefer Lake Lodge and anything we can do to elevate your experience, we will do!
