Shannon & Jeff’s fun Heritage Park wedding was originally planned to be a tent wedding at The Zoo. But the Calgary flooding changed those plans. Thankfully Heritage Park opened their gates and the reception was hosted at The Wainwright Hotel. The couple wanted to incorporate gorgeous, bright colors and Lyn Chapman from Flower Artistry did an amazing job of the flower design! They had custom designed animal crackers, delich candy buffet and a great band to keep their guests entertained.
The sweet heart headtable was framed by gorgeous 8 foot tall cherry blossom LED trees. They were a beast to setup and 7 minutes before guests arrived, as my team was adjusting the limbs, this monstrous tree started to topple over!!! Dario, Tanya and I all have war wounds from the tree limbs jabbing into us! Quickly we got it setup again minutes before the groom came in to check that everything was on track. Ahhh the joys of decorating!
A huge thanks for Janelle and her family from Flowers by Janie for helping out with setup! With the very limited time to setup, it is definitely a challenge to pull off a wedding a Heritage Park, but with the right wedding planning company and the help of some great industry friends, Shannon & Jeff’s wedding was gorgeous!
