Pam & James – Vegas meets Zoo

 In Calgary, Calgary & Area Attractions, Event Photography, Photography, Wedding Photography, Weddings

When your engagement is in Vegas, it only follows that you have a Vegas themed wedding – especially when your best friend and maid of honour is also one of the best planners in the industry!

Ominous skies and the lush gardens of Riley Park provided spectacular backdrops for family. Mother Nature sent that storm north though, so we managed to stay dry!

One of the female gorillas at the zoo has a thing for brides, and will often come over to ‘interact’ at the window.  Incredible moment – for both the bride, and this photographer who found herself a little choked up too!!

Lots of love and laughter throughout the day…

The emotional moments are some of the best!

“Bunny!! Look, it’s a bunny!!!”

The source of the shriek and laughter in the previous photo. We lost the flower girl temporarily as she had to go see the bunny.

    I was hoping for Cuba photos, Suzan. 🙂 But the bride looks happy.

      LOL – I promise I will get some up soon. Sent some off to the BBC the other day and thought, ‘I really should get some of this blogged’. Havana, especially, is amazing.
