If you’re not from Calgary, you might wonder why on earth anyone would want to get married at a zoo. But as soon as you visit and walk the lush, manicured gardens and gorgeous wetland and natural spaces that frame all the animal spaces, it becomes pretty clear that the Calgary Zoo is one of the best places to get married in the city. We didn’t have a ton of luck with the weather, though maybe we were the luckiest that day. The ceremony was completed and I had made a split second decision to head indoors before the most violent torrential downpour drenched the city; I don’t think I’ve ever seen that amount of rain fall so hard so fast. So yes, we were lucky. And the fact that we had a stunning indoor space for family photos was such a relief. By the time we finished, the rain had let up enough that we headed outside, and as with all my INCREDIBLE couples, they didn’t mind a little sprinkle or wet grass. Jenn and Evan are adorable. I’m not sure how else to describe them. I can literally just tell them to stand close to each other and then I just start shooting, watching them as they giggle about the myriad of comments or inside jokes that they have collected as a couple. The instant-ness of the giant smiles on their faces when they are together is evidence enough of a superb match, of something that will last forever. Laughter, I feel, is what can get anyone through anything. If we can laugh, if we can find the humor, or the lightheartedness of a situation, then anything can be conquered. These are two truly beautiful people and I cannot say enough how delightful it has been getting to know them, laughing with them and witnessing that gorgeous light of their souls. Soulmates, absolutely. Enjoy this little glimpse into a Calgary Zoo wedding!
