Sarah and Nick picked the Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo for their wedding venue with a stunning outdoor ceremony held in the gardens at the Calgary Zoo and it couldn't have been more perfect.
The gardens at the Calgary Zoo was a beautiful, secluded spot for the ceremony complete with peacocks roaming the ceremony site. The bridesmaids all looked absolutely stunning in yellow dresses and the bright yellow bouquets made for a beautiful pop of colour. The guys all looked so handsome in their grey suits and yellow ties, and my favourite touch was their converse shoes! All the groomsmen had charcoal grey converse and the groom and the ring bearer had bright yellow converse. The ceremony was beautiful and it was lucky the rain held off until the ceremony was done and everyone was heading inside. Nick and Sarah wrote their own vows which had each other and the whole audience laughing out loud. I loved hearing about their love story, knowing they went to school together but it wasn’t until later working together that their romance began.
The Calgary Zoo had some great spots for bridal portraits, the penguin exhibit and the Transalta Rainforest were some of my favourites (we even had a Rock Hopper Penguin checking us out). The reception was so much fun complete with a candy bar, Poutine for midnight snack, and a Live Band. But my Favourite part of the whole night was sneaking out around sunset for some photos in the garden, and playing around with some off camera flash.
