Weddings, wedding weddings. It is that time of year when weddings are in the air. And the weather in and around Calgary this summer has been wonderful for outdoor weddings. Many couples ask us if it is possible to have their ceremony and wedding reception outside Calgary and in a rural or 'rustic' location. The short answer to this question is - you bet it is!! When we work with wedding couples who have their hearts set on a special and meaningful location for their wedding that isn't 'serviced' or close to amenities we get pretty excited. We know they will be a huge amount of work but they are always very special and definitely unforgettable.
We have catered many weddings in and around Calgary in absolutely stunning outdoor locations. Many of these places are beautiful precisely because they are somewhat 'wild'. And, what makes for a beautiful and romantic place to get married doesn't necessarily mean its set up as a place to have 200 of your friends and family come for a wedding! Many of the outdoor weddings we cater are in locations that have no access to fresh water, no power, and no bathrooms.
Nothing is impossible. With know-how and creativity along with support from the amazing rental companies we work with, we create amazing outdoor ceremony sites and rustically elegant dining tents with breathtaking views of the foothills and mountains.
Tents, restroom trailers (aka portapotties - do you know how fancy these have become lately? They are GREAT!), buses to transport your guests, generators, crystal chandeliers, fabric ceilings, crystal glasses, clear span tents that keep you protected from the elements but let you see the great outdoors. Its all possible. This all creates a beautiful and truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for everyone.
While the logistics of holding a wedding in an out-of-town location can take much of the focus, we are just as concerned about the preparation and service of your food. We carefully engineer all of our tent wedding menus so that all items can be finished on site to ensure they are delicious and beautiful. We never prepare our items and hold them in hot boxes for hours waiting to be served.
Contact us to find out how that beautiful spot at the top of the hill or beside the river can be transformed into the spot where you say 'I do' while surrounded by your friends and family.
