Vendors We Love!
For most couples once their venue and photographer are booked, things slow down a little on the planning. Photographers are usually one of the first vendors to get locked in so we are often getting asked for recommendations of other best wedding vendors. We’ve been fortunate enough to work with some amazing wedding professionals in Calgary and also the surrounding areas. Here are a few that we love! This list is constantly being updated so any other recommendations or vendors that we have worked with and you’re not seeing yourself on this list please let me know!
I adore wedding planners, they make your day incredibly seamless and you can enjoy stress-free perfection. A few of the planners that we have worked with in the past.

Eating and Watering Holes
So more just for fun, I thought I would list some our favourite places to eat. We often get asked by our out of town couples if we know of any good places around the area. I am definitely a foodie!! Joe is pretty happy no matter what is put in front of him but I’m a food snob and I love things I’ve never tried and experimental flavours so if this sounds like something you’re into then here are some of our favourite places to eat and drink.
Ten Foot Henrys – the blown feta and tomatoes is mind blowing
Model Milk – best burger ever (big call I know), also Calamari is incredible
The Himalayan – if you like Nepalese food this is for you
Where The Buffalo Roam – This little nook is in Canmore and it has the best cocktail ever – The Mexican Mule is amazing!!
The Crazy Weed – Also in Canmore and is amazing
Hope this list is helpful, any other questions just let me know or you can head home by clicking THIS!
