Planning a wedding can be stressful, I get it. From planning your decor, searching for accommodations, finding a caterer, setting up and taking down - the list can go on and on and on...
What if I told you that there is a place right here in Saskatchewan that solves all of these problems for you! Yes, it's true!
Nestled in the boreal forest, just 45 minutes north of Prince Albert, lies the beautiful Elk Ridge Resort. The resort offers so much that will not only make you and your guests feel relaxed, entertained, and close to nature, but they will also take the stress out of planning your wedding!.
Elkridge Resort offers a vast amount of amenities for you and your guests. You just simply need to show up and relax.
Accommodations: The resort offers an ample amount of places to rest your head! There is no shortage of spaces for you and your guests to stay.
Lodge: Stay in the hotel guest rooms with a pool, spa, fitness room, and fine dining right at your fingertips. They offer full suites with king, or queen beds.
Cabins: 2, 3, or 4 bedroom cabins offer a spacious and comfortable spot to stay. It's a perfect place for families, friends, and of course bridal parties.
Townhouses: 2-3 bedroom townhouses that make you feel right at home.
Cottages: These are located right beside the golf course in a quaint little culdesac. They are cozy 2 or 3 bedroom modern cabins.
Elk Ridge on the Lake: If you want all of the amenities of Elk Ridge, but also want to be right in the townsite of Waskesiu, this is the spot for you! These beautiful condo-like spaces are located right in the heart of Waskesiu in Prince Albert National Park.
* Bonus! The resort is PET FRIENDLY! Be sure to check out which accommodations offer pet friendly rooms. So bring your fur baby and enjoy the resort and all it has to offer!
2. Dining: Let's talk about the food -my favourite! The resort offers two restaurants, as well as catering for events (ie. your wedding!)
The Wyld: Connected to the Golf Clubhouse, this is a perfect place to unwind after a round of golf or a hike. The restaurant offers a very delicious menu including an elk burger and locally caught walleye. Take the entire family as they also offer a kids menu, and daily specials. The Wyld is open from 11am-10pm daily.
The Fredrich: Immerse yourself in a fine dining experience that brings in the beauty of the Boreal Forest through dishes that tell a story of the flavours of northern Saskatchewan. Red seal chefs Kyle Novicki and Dan Neumeier combine art and food to create a tasty celebration of flavours for all guests. The Fredrich hours are extended for the summer months, but I strongly suggest booking reservations as they book up quite quickly.
Catering: The resort will take care of all your food needs on your wedding day! Whether your wedding is big or small they will happily create a memorable and delicious experience for everyone! While also accommodating any dietary needs.
3. Venue Spaces: The resort has so many places to say your "I do's", eat, dance, or whatever your celebration may entail - Six locations to be exact!
The Pond: The Pond Patio is a beautiful location for an outdoor ceremony. It can accommodate up to 250 guests and is located just behind the lodge.
The Gazebo: Located just to the right of the Pond Patio, the Gazebo is a cute and intimate space that overlooks the pond and has space for up to 25 people.
The Church: If you want to get married in a church but don't want to commute from the city to the resort, Elkridge offers an intimate church that welcomes all religious celebrations.
The Pavilion: The Pavilion or "Pav" as most call it, is a beautiful rustic, chic space that brings the feeling of the boreal forest to your wedding. It can accommodate up to 225 guests and is open from May-September.
The Wapiti Ballrooms: Located right in the Lodge, these rooms offer space for 50 to over 200 guests. They are your typical ballrooms, and all include an ample amount of natural light through an entire wall of windows that back onto the pond and green space. Each has access to the outdoor space as well.
4. Activities and Entertainment: The resort offers so many activities such as golf, hiking, zip-lining, and more. It really is a place for EVERYONE! It really is a breathtaking place to say your, "I do's"
Golf: With three different courses, a putting green, AND a driving range, this resort is a golfer's paradise. These pristine courses are great for all golfers, from beginners to pros. Be sure to take in the beverage cart service that will serve you right on the course, or keep your eye open for the fawns curled up on the fairway in July. It truly is an experience in itself!
The Pro Shop: Get all of your golfing gear at the Pro Shop while you book in your tee times. If you are a first time golfer, book in with an expert for a lesson.
