REAL WEDDING: Intimate Calgary Wedding at Bow Valley Ranche
The Couple: Razel & Will
The Season: Late October as fall turned to winter
The Location: Bow Valley Ranche & Fish Creek Park in Calgary
A Snippet About the Day: Razel & Will chose late October for their intimate Calgary wedding at Bow Valley Ranche (one of my favourite venues in the city!) in Fish Creek Park. It started out as a bright, warm autumn day when the two had their first look on the grounds at Bow Valley Ranche. We wandered around the gardens in the area before we headed off into Fish Creek Park for their couples portraits. You could feel the change in the air as the storm blew in, it felt like that was the moment that autumn ended & winter was starting. We got crazy dramatic skies (my favourite!) before the rain came. We headed back to BVR for their outdoor ceremony as the rain began to fall on their intimate Calgary wedding. The ceremony was set-up on the lawn with BVR as the backdrop but the decision was made to move the ceremony on to the covered porch area for their guests. It is a pretty spot but tight with chairs set up & a wedding party, but we made it work for the brief ceremony that included a handfasting & lots of tears from the bride. After the ceremony, the rain cleared out so did family photos outside & did a few quick wedding party photos nearby before heading into the reception space for dinner. The food was fabulous, of course! The evening included a few short speeches & a quick cake cutting to end the night for Razel & Will’s intimate Calgary wedding at Bow Valley Ranche. As I was leaving, I stopped to look back at the beautiful Calgary wedding venue that hosted their intimate event & just had to take a photo of Bow Valley Ranche under stormy night skies… and if you look closely you can still see the end of the wedding reception inside! The building really does look pretty lit up at night!
