Summer is here! After a serious prairie winter, many of us have vowed to appreciate every waking moment of sunlight we get. From gorgeous outdoor weddings to family picnics and casual bbqs, we want to help you soak up the sun, and enjoy great food and company while you’re at it.
On September 7th we were part of a lovely wedding reception that took place just outside of Bragg Creek at a beautiful acreage.
It can often be tricky when planning an outdoor reception at any time of the year and we always suggest that all plans be made while envisioning the worst weather you can imagine. Well - this plan held true for this celebration because boy oh boy did it rain! And boy oh boy were the guests glad that propane heaters had been rented and that there was a fire pit close by.
It was a beautiful September 1st and a perfect day for a Calgary outdoor wedding at The Southern Alberta Pioneers Association. We had met the lovely and beautiful bride several months earlier and enjoyed planning the menu and the special details of the day along with her mom.
Their outdoor wedding ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception on the ridge that included passed hors d'oeuvres with gin and tonic and old fashioneds as the specialty cocktails. Once the couple returned from having their photos taken, an oyster bar opened and guests continued to enjoy the afternoon sun while the bride and groom were congratulated by all their guests.
