I had a great visit with Sody Hernandez from the Wyndam Garden Calgary Airport Hotel last week where I got to experience their fabulous food and see their brand new venue space which is perfect for 160 guests, with dance. The venue room is spacious and modern and the banquet menu is very accommodating as they will cater to gluten-free or food allergies/sensitivities for your guests as everything (bread and jams too) are made in-house. There is also a semi private room for rehearsal dinners or smaller gatherings.
In the funky bar, there are local beers on tap and they have a pretty rad drink list, one even called “Diamond in the Rough” which would be a perfect signature cocktail! They also have a great wine list featuring many of our BC wines.
Other wonderful features of the Wyndam Garden Calgary Airport Hotel, is it is a U-Shape so parking is available everywhere, there s a fully equipped fitness centre that is open 24 hours along with a salt water pool and hot tub. In the modern and sleek rooms they feature ‘Nest’ products, robes and slippers, 50″ TV’s, and the junior suites even feature a steam shower.
But the best feature I found was that Sody was so excited about her venue and all of the features and benefits and she could not stress enough that she is available 24 hours a day to work FOR her clients and not with them to plan the wedding of their dreams. Made me want to get married again..

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.
