Fashionable Modern Downtown Calgary Wedding

Here in elegant wedding, we can swoon our hearts out over sweet little things with no judgment while pinning our way towards our dream wedding. Are you ready for another round of sweet snaps to swoon over? Get ready, because today’s inspirational shoot has got us gushing nonstop as our pals from Christy D Swanberg Photography not only captured Scott and Sanja’s special day but our hearts as well. For the love of fashion, romantic moments, and a couple who are meant together, other weddings don’t have anything on this one. Weddings in downtown Calgary in the historic Fairmont Palliser are always a big to-do and stunning, but watching Scott and Sanja’s wedding unfold chapter by chapter was breathtaking and so moving. My favorite thing about this set? Sanja had two or three dresses prepared for her wedding and a few pairs of designer shoes for the love of all things beautiful. Cool, right? Now go check it out, honey!

We’re All About the Details!

Sanja and Scott have exquisite taste and making sure every single guest that could make it to their day, was THE top priority for them both.

When you have a bride who loves fashion and all things beautiful as much as Sanja does, two or three dresses were necessary. Okay maybe even a few pairs of designer shoes as well but you get the point.

Next to set the tone of their wedding day, was the stationary by the Social Page. Their designs were exceptional, their save the dates, their invitation suite, the door tags for the guests rooms, etc. They thought of everything and their designs were beautiful.

It was perfect and a bit emotional. After the tears and elation of enjoying their moment just the two of them. They joined their bridal party for their bridal formals and their were editorial yet natural and playfully sexy.

Hearing some of the first guests the “ooohhhs and ahhhhhs” during the wedding ceremony is exactly the feeling of what the room looked like.

But, the moment Sanja walked in the room and she saw her Scott, tears flowed from every eye in the room. It was something you just felt. These two have such a chemistry that it demands your full attention. As if anything could top their ceremony or first look, their reception, cocktail hour, and all the dancing, sure did run a close second.

About the Photographer
Capturing weddings is so much more than photographing an event about two people. To me it is being invited into two peoples’ lives in a way that tells their story in an authentic way. Although, most of the day is beautiful, it is the real moments that make each wedding breathtaking. Although I am a Calgary, AB based wedding photographer, I travel from the Europe, US and all over Canada to capture wonderful people who are in love. Its my love of telling your story that is my adventure. Most weddings range from $4,000 – $7,000 CAD and please show your love via my instagram and blog posts.
