Calgary Zoo weddings are always special but I was delighted to shoot Pam and Gord’s winter wedding in the Safari Lodge. It was lovely to see their personalities shining through in every aspect of their wedding. Congratulations to my dear friends, Pam and Gord.
Pam’s beautiful strapless gown was from Blissful Bridal boutique in Calgary.
It was important to Pam and Gord to incorporate elements of Pam’s Mexican heritage into their day. Little tidbit, Gord even proposed to Pam in Spanish. Anyhow, this is the “lazo ceremony”. The cord were placed over them by each of their mothers and this is the cord that was used in Pam’s parent’s own wedding.

The light after their ceremony was literally golden. Pam braved the cold for a hasty portrait session around the zoo grounds. Pam, it was so worth it.
The strolling Mariachi band during the cocktail hour were phenomenal and really set the tone for the evening.
There was a Salsa demonstration followed by dancing lessons and the dance floor was packed.
Here is Pam and Gord’s autumn engagement session if you’d like to see.
