I am so beyond excited to get Lauren and Braden’s modern Calgary Venue 308 wedding up on my blog as this wedding was certainly a personal favourite of mine.
Lauren and Braden were one of my unfortunate couples who’s wedding plans were affected by the pandemic.
Plus they were doing all of their planning long distance from the States to Calgary. But with an insane amount of patience, a whole lot of creativity and an amazing team of vendors on their side, this couple persevered and had the most perfect day imaginable. Actually, two days! The couple got super creative and had two separate receptions so all original guests could attend. It was a brilliant idea! Read more about this on Bronte Bride’s “Double Header Wedding at Venue 308” feature where Lauren and Braden talk about the original plans for their wedding, the changes, advice for couples and things they learned from the wedding planning process. You’ll also read my insight from a photographer’s perspective on my favourite parts of the day and what made the wedding special.
Now let’s chat this insanely gorgeous venue, shall we!
Located in the historic Louise Block building in the old warehouse district of Victoria Park in Calgary, Venue 308 exudes modern elegance. Literally perfect for Lauren and Braden and the elegant modern vibe they were hoping for. This was a couple- venue match made in heaven. The venue boasts gorgeous open spaces with high ceilings, wood floors and brick walls. There are also stunning “Getting Ready” rooms with The Grace Lounge and The Walter Lounge as you’ll see below. This venue is a photographers dream and has been designed with such beautiful attention to detail. Plus the owners and staff are top notch! Not only do they go above and beyond for the couples themselves, but they are incredible with us vendors! They really have created the best environment to thrive for everyone involved in the wedding day. I cannot wait to get back to Venue 308 this season for more incredible weddings!
Big thank you to my gorgeous and wonderful couple Lauren and Braden for trusting me with your day! I’m so grateful for the beautiful friendship we’ve continued with long past your perfect wedding day.
