When Jill & Jason first emailed me their inquiry and shared that they were going to have their wedding at the Calgary Zoo I honestly filled the f out cause that’s the coolest venue everrrr!! They are both engineers and refer to their second date as “enginerdy”, which is a term I will steal whenever the opportunity arises. Despite their success and slightly intimidating intelligence, they are both super down to earth and aren’t afraid to be silly or get a little weird (which is important to me because I myself am weird AF).
Their wedding was INCREDIBLE, I straight up cried on my way home because I was just so happy and excited about the images. The rain held off for most of the day and the overcast skies gave me the most beautiful even lighting to work with. They held the ceremony at Sacred Heart Church which is an absolutely stunning church in the heart of downtown Calgary. It was short and sweet and everything went off without a hitch. Then we headed down to the zoo to get the family formals done and start the celebrations!
I can’t say enough good things about the venue at the Calgary Zoo, there is a beautiful room in the Enmax conservatory where you and your guests can access the conservatory after hours. There’s about a million different places to take photos all over the zoo. My favourite part of the day was wandering around with the wedding party taking photos. Actually, my favourite part may have been the dessert lol! It was so damn good I asked Chelsea, the wedding coordinator, if I could eat the rest of hers cause she was too full. Thanks Chelsea!! Not just for the dessert, but for making sure Jill & Jason’s day was perfect, because it truly was!
