- Wedding: July 2014
We signed our contract for our venues today, so that makes our date official! I’m so excited for this journey and our wedding and just everything!
This weekend we visited three venues, and put the deposit down on the one we decided on today. Our venue will be at what’s called Heritage Park in Calgary, which is a themed historical village, all about the history of Calgary. We went on one of our first dates there, and attended a wedding there last year and it remained at the top of our list for a long time.
The entire day will be hosted at the Village, in a building called Gasoline Alley, which is filled with awesome old cars and information on the oil boom in Alberta, and really cool signs and stuff. The ceremony will be there, then all the guests will have the option to walk around the park and do things like a river boat tour, a steam train ride, a horse and carriage ride, walk through a haunted building, go on some awesome old school amusement rides, or just walk around the park, before coming back for cocktail hour and the reception. Our reception will be in the same space, and we’re hoping to get some of the things the park offers (like old school black and white costume photographs, a really cool palm reader, some Canadian collectables to look at, things like that) to have during our reception. We’ll be having the on sight resturaunt cater, and we’ll probably have the candy shop on location do our desserts/candy bar/favors
