A Coptic Orthodox Calgary Wedding

Calgary bride and groom

Meet Lisa and Roni, one of our wonderful Calgary wedding couples from 2019. They are fortunate to be able to split their time between Calgary and the Caribbean, while attending post graduate school. Communicating primarily by email, we were able to organize all the details and timelines. As the date approached, we were excited for this wedding. In addition to being featured here, a part of this wedding will be featured in another blog pos. t We plan to show off some behind the scenes photo magic and reveal a secret or two. Keep an eye out for how we shift the color of the backlit mirror and produce a more flattering image.


An Incredible Calgary Wedding


It was our first experience photographing a Coptic Orthodox ceremony. The amazing ceremony at St. Mina Coptic Orthodox Church, Calgary left us in awe. Located in a spectacular church, combined with ornate clothing and capes, and all topped by an incredible ceremony.

After the ceremony, we headed off to do formals at some nearby parks and locations towards downtown. First stop of the photo tour, offering fantastic views of downtown, was Tom Campbell Hill. Afterward, providing an opportunity to be more creative, East Village and the National Music Center, were our next must stop locations. Finally, a quick stop at SAIT allowed us to round out our photo locations. These multiple stops ensure our couples have a wide selection of images and styles.

Completing the photos, we headed to the Carriage House Inn for an amazing reception. Located in South Calgary, the Carriage House always does an incredible job hosting wedding receptions. As always, we were excited to have the opportunity to work there once again.

In addition to a fantastic main banquet room, a great space for cocktail hour sits just outside the doors. While final touches are put on the main room, your guests can mingle just feet away from the reception preparations.

Congratulations to you both on your Calgary wedding, and we wish you all the best. Finally, many thanks to Erin for all her amazing work with this wedding!!
