It seems that, more and more, the old fashioned norm of big church weddings and golf club receptions is going by the wayside for new brides and grooms. Outdoor wedding ceremonies on patios and green spaces, in barns and even on the ski hill are the new trend in getting hitched, and Sun Peaks is reaping the rewards.
With over 30 weddings booked this past summer alone, Sun Peaks has now become a wedding destination of sorts. During one weekend in August there were reportedly eight weddings held in the community. Tourism Sun Peaks sales representatives have focused on this market over the last few years and it seems to be paying off in brides.
With most wedding parties being from 50 to 200 people all one has to do is a little math to see the spin off effect to all Sun Peaks businesses from this blushing market.
