Calgary Wedding Venues

There are so many factors to consider when choosing a wedding venue, like budges, capacity, parking, food, location, lighting….

Many of my clients ask me what my favourite Calgary wedding venues to shoot at are, well here are just a few of my favs.

It has the capacity for 250 guests. Guests can also enjoy the breathtaking views from the lovely outdoor patio. For more details check out this venue on
