Weddings at Blaylock’s Mansion – Where the Fairy Tale Begins
Since the nature of this ceremony changes the direction of the participant’s lives in such a positive and loving way, marriage is probably one of the most important traditions in people’s lives. Marriage is an unforgettable experience that will be shared with loved ones for the rest of our lives.
Probably one of the most memorable aspects of a wedding ceremony is the setting where the nuptials were held. One of the most spectacular settings for weddings in Western Canada would be historical Blaylock’s Mansion. From the breathtaking viewscape at Blaylock’s, guests can enjoy the magnificent gardens where colors are in constant change throughout the season. Blaylock’s is also an arboretum, with one of the finest collections of mature Canadian trees in the country.
With many charming and romantic settings for the wedding we leave it up to the bride and groom to pick the location that suits them the best. A night in the Bridal Suite is a wonderful experience for the beginning of a new life together. The luxuriously carpeted suite is larger that many peoples home with a picturesque view of the Kootenay Lake, a fireplace at the end of the bed, a large sitting room and bathroom and a large screen TV. With all the enjoyable aspects of Blaylock’s Mansion it would be hard to find a better location for a memorable wedding.
