Thank you for your interest in having your wedding reception at Tekarra Restaurant. The Tekarra property in Jasper National Park is beautifully located overlooking the confluence of the Athabasca and Miette Rivers. The ridge above the rivers is a natural location for wedding ceremonies. Tekarra Restaurant is Jasper‘s premier dinning destination offering fabulous local cuisine with sincere service. If you choose to book with us, you are making a commitment to your guests to offer them the best dining experience possible as well as having a private venue. The intimacy of our restaurant along with the attentiveness of our staff is just a few of the reasons for making Tekarra Restaurant your reception choice.
Our dining room comfortably seats up to 80, however we have accommodated over 90 guests in the past. Our dinners are always plated to ensure the best quality of food; therefore we do not offer buffet service. We have a great patio that would be at your disposal and which we often use for a cocktail reception. Because of the size of our restaurant we cannot offer it as a backup wedding service location.
To give you an understanding of what we can offer you for your reception, let me give you a breakdown of our normal wedding reception.
Cocktail Hour: Upon arrival we like to have our beautiful patio set up with an outside bar serving wine and beer with plenty of seating as well as standing room. Should you plan on having photos after your reception, this is a great venue for your guests to wait for your arrival and mingle with drinks as well as passed canapés. We generally move inside for dinner service after about an hour to an hour and a half of outside enjoyment. Should the weather be uncooperative, we have a fair amount of covered space as well as 2 large umbrellas to offer cover and of course the cocktail hour can be inside as well.
Dinner Service: This is where we shine. For 3-5 courses we tantalize your guests with local, organic fine cuisine and attentive, charming service. Our passion for excellence allows only 2 breaks in service for speeches; before the salad course and after the main course.
Late Night Snack: Should you decide to host a dance till late, we find that a snack is a nice accompaniment. We generally offer a mini cheeseburger buffet, but have also had cheese and deli meat platters as well, with all the fixings.
Please contact us for further details, sample menus and for any other questions or concerns.
