Tyler & Amanda married in the University of Alberta Botanic Garden (also known as the Devonian Botanic Gardens) and it is a GORGEOUS venue! This was my first time visiting and I was blown away by how large it is! There are so many places to visit and take pictures and the U of A are even renovating a part of the venue to create an Islamic garden (The Aga Khan Garden) for next summer (sidenote: I MUST shoot another wedding here)!

Even though there were 3 other weddings happening that day, the garden grounds is so large you rarely cross paths with the other wedding parties. They also stagger the wedding ceremonies so you’re not getting married at the same time as another couple. And if you’re worried about having to walk everywhere, they give you a few drivers & golf carts so you and your guests don’t have to walk the entire time!

If you fall in love with the venue like I have and you’re getting married next summer, give us both a call! ­čÖé
