Calgary Lakehouse Wedding – Jen and Selorm

We first met Jen and Selorm over a beer at Craft Beer Market to discuss their wedding plans. It was pretty clear from the beginning that Jen and Selorm wouldn’t just plan any boring old wedding. They had some amazing ideas about how to make their wedding experience memorable for guests. Here are a few reasons why their Calgary Lakehouse Wedding reception was off the hook.

First of all, they decided on one of Calgary’s most sought after restaurant wedding venues; The Lakehouse on Lake Bonavista. Three words. Drop dead gorgeous. This restaurant is run by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts. They are known for world class cuisine in world class settings. Not only that, but their outdoor patio overlooks Lake Bonavista. It has gorgeous views of the lake, which is not a common sight in Southern Alberta. It’s one of only a few wedding reception venues with where you can enjoy a lakeside sunset over a glass of wine.

Secondly, they hired Olivia from Love Crush Weddings for decor consultation and day-of co-ordination. Her style is sleek, modern and whimsically romantic. Those traits are at the forefront of her designs. She is a perfect match for Jen and Selorm, who have impeccable style themselves. She pulled the whole day off without a hitch. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish.

As their wedding plans progressed, they threw around the idea of live music at their wedding reception. That’s something you don’t see often these days. Many couples opt for a DJ at their wedding reception. Not these two. They wanted something different. By the time our final meeting rolled around, we found out they booked duelling pianos for post-dinner entertainment. We couldn’t believe our ears. After having experienced it first hand, it as the entertainment highlight of our summer. Not kidding. The artists from Marquee Pianos were phenomenal. Oh, and they played everything you can think of. AC/DC, check. Michael Jackson, check. No diggity? No doubt. Their guests loved it and it kicked their party off in style.
