Lions and tigers and ... weddings, Oh my! We love how unique and weddings at The Calgary Zoo can be. There is just something so fun about getting married with all of the animals. When you add in the fact that it was also the Illuminasia lantern festival, it made for a spectacular day for Reuben and Rachel's wedding.
Their gorgeous ceremony was held at Grazers restaurant at the zoo and it was the perfect place for an intimate ceremony. You don't even feel like you are part of the zoo crowds on the private little patio. Reuben and Rachel couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, the weather was wonderful, the fall colors were everywhere and the look on Reuben's face when he saw Rachel walking down the aisle was so full of emotion and love.
While their guests enjoyed the zoo, we headed around the park for some great pictures of the two of them. We might have even had time to fit in a ride or two on the wildlife carousel. After some time taking pictures, we headed back to Grazers for the reception, for some beautiful speeches and an incredibly delicious dinner.
Once the sun had set, we got to put a little bit of a different spin on our always favorite time, the night time portraits. The Illuminasia lantern festival was in full swing after dinner so we got to have some fun taking pictures with all of the beautiful scenes.
Reuben and Rachel, thank you for allowing us to be there on your day to capture these moments for you. May the love and happiness you felt on your wedding day, shine through and grow over the years.
