Are you and your fiancé animal lovers like us here at the CBA? Perfect – The Calgary Zoo is surely the venue for you!
To prove to you how magical this venue really can be, we pulled together a couple weddings held at the Zoo in the past. I mean, having some animals as your witnesses is pretty magical, right?
Before we dive into remembering some of the most incredible weddings held in the animal kingdom, we wanted to note a few benefits of saying “I do” at the Zoo.
First off, there’s loads of venue options to choose from within the Calgary Zoo itself. Get married in an outdoor spot and bring the party inside afterward in a banquet hall for your wedding reception. The Safari Lodge has caught our eyes as an excellent wedding space that can easily transform from a massive banquet hall to a smaller, more intimate space. No matter what space you choose, the Zoo offers catering services with collaborative menus from some of Calgary’s top-chefs and most innovative restaurants.
The incredible botanical gardens and natural lighting in and around the venue also make the perfect backdrop for when you’re saying your vows to one another. As a bonus, you can even have a little animal friend join you and your partner for some memorable photo ops, too!
First up, we have Jacqueline and Bob’s Zoo wedding captured beautifully by Moments in Digital. This couple took full advantage of the opportunity to shoot with some of the animals around. How amazing is the photo with the penguins below?!
This next wedding has us swooning over the Eurasian Gateway Tent, one of many incredible venue options available. Leanne and Tim’s magical wedding was shot by Calgary photographer Kristyn Harder Photography.
