The salmon was caught by the couple on the West Coast, the kegs of beer were local, and the ice cream was from Village Ice Cream. The wines were carefully selected from Ontario and BC. Local and personal touches always make such a difference – especially to out of town guests.
Your event venue is about more than a place to eat and drink, it’s the centerpiece for your occasion. Flashy or refined, there’s nothing more exciting than finding a venue that works for you functionally, and makes you feel something special. Calgary is home to many great venues that all bring something special to the table. We have listed some of our favourite Calgary venues below. If the name of the venue links to the venue's website, it means Devour can provide the catering - a feature we think is critically important to your event!
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.
A stunning Saturday in July and an absolutely perfect day for a wedding at Pioneer Lodge. The rustic log cabin overlooks the Elbow River and, on clear days, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the mountains to the west. We have been so lucky to have been part of several weddings at Pioneer and it is one of our favourite wedding venues in Calgary.
We really enjoyed planning the menu with this couple. They wanted something fun and they wanted to treat their guests to a variety of hors d'oeuvres and food stations that blended tropical flavours with a Hawaiian bent (one of their favourite places to vacation) along with delicious summer BBQ fare.
Nothing is impossible. With know-how and creativity along with support from the amazing rental companies we work with, Devour can help you create beautiful outdoor ceremony sites and rustically elegant dining tents with breathtaking views of the foothills and mountains.
