A Beautiful Backyard Calgary Wedding
I had the chance to witness a truly special union a few weeks ago. Nestled in the heart of Calgary this exclusive, intimate venue felt far removed from the city as dappled late summer sunshine fell through the green boughs overhead while this lovely young couple made their vows of love to each other. But this wasn’t just any garden. These young lovers stood amidst the very backyard that the brides father had nurtured and tended for many years, creating this sanctuary in the city, a stunning reminder that the best things in life are the result of labours of love, putting in the effort to make something special grow.
With new rings on their fingers and a few candid smiles and kisses away from the crowd, the new Mr and Mrs were celebrated with a backyard banquet to rival any hall. I was delighted by this charming celebration in this little slice of paradise, and it was a brilliant example of how elegant a celebration can be even if you don’t stray far from home. Simple, natural, and lush, surrounded by friends and family in the warm August afternoon.
And I was surprised to learn the newlyweds had made arrangements for the festivities to help raise money for charity. Thank you to this couple for sharing your day, and finding a way to spread love and camaraderie beyond only those gathered to celebrate you, and may the memories of this warm summer day stay in your hearts for years to come.
This backyard wedding was an absolute dream to photograph. As well as it being an affordable and more personal option than a typical wedding venue it also has far less of an environmental impact.
