Canada is known around the world for the beautiful natural landscape that we have from coast-to-coast. While many couples opting for a destination wedding take off for a tropical beach, they shouldn't overlook the beautiful backyard we have right here. If you’re looking for the perfect outdoor backdrop for your vows there are a variety of options and locations that you can find without leaving the great white north. 

The Nova Scotia Coast

We have beautiful beaches in the maritimes that make for a picture-perfect wedding. A stunning beach wedding in Nova Scotia like the one seen in this real wedding is just as beautiful as a tropical wedding with a greener Canadian feel. Take a trip to Peggy's Cove or the Halifax harbour and your maritime wedding will be incomparable. 

Vancouver Island

From one coast to the other Vancouver Island brings an entirely different feeling of nature to this real wedding. The towering pine trees and rustic shore line give a rugged beauty to this natural beach wedding.

A Modern City Scape

Canadian cities like Toronto definitely make beautiful backdrop for those more comfortable in a metropolis. For city slickers, a cityscape like the one seen in this real wedding may be the ideal backdrop for your wedding vows.

The Rocky Mountains 

The rocky mountains are one of the most stunning natural wonders of Canada. A mountaintop celebration, or saying your vows with the mountains behind you like the bride and groom did in this real wedding, is a gorgeous natural backdrop that will make your wedding photos one-of-a-kind.

The Plains of Saskatchewan

While the mountains have overpowering natural beauty. the prairie provinces bring their own simple ethereal beauty. An outdoor winter wedding like the one seen in this real wedding is simple and elegant.

Old Quebec City

Historical buildings and adorable avenues are abundant in Old Quebec city and make for perfect rustic wedding venues. Stone churches like the one in this real wedding bring history to your wedding day, making it a timeless addition.

Beautiful Banff

One of the most picturesque places in all of Canada is Banff. Known for its crystal lakes and breathtaking mountain ranges Banff makes the perfect natural setting for your wedding. Seen in this real wedding you can have both the majesty of the mountains and lakeside beauty of a beach wedding.

The Red Beach on Prince Edward Island 

The beaches in Prince Edward Island are picturesque because of the vibrant red sand that lines the coast. An island ceremony like the one seen in this real wedding shows off the beauty of Canada's smallest province.
