Besides being a Realtor, I am also a Marriage Commissioner. I have had the privilege of officiating the weddings of many wonderful couples. The venue is one of the most important parts of the ceremony, and I am always on the lookout for new and interesting settings. Recently, I discovered a place that immediately became one of my favorite wedding spots: Spring Valley Chapel.
Located between Calgary and Okotoks and three miles south of Sirocco Golf Club, Spring Valley Chapel has labeled itself “Calgary’s Hidden Wedding Chapel”. It might be hidden for now, but I predict it will soon become one of the most popular wedding sites in our area. Spring Valley Chapel sits on private property and the main feature is the chapel itself. To say it is adorable is an understatement! It was built with stone walls, arched windows, and a quaint steeple. The interior seats 135 and is furnished with church pews, antiques, and artwork. Outdoors, there are too many picture-perfect settings to count. I have watched photographers become giddy over all the magical scenes that hold the possibility of memorable wedding pictures! I know when a wedding photographer is impressed with a locale, it’s a gem.
Recently, I had the honor of officiating the wedding of a truly sweet couple at Spring Valley Chapel. The groom is involved with the Porsche Club of Calgary and proposed to his bride with four Porsches, each featuring a license plate with the words Will You Marry Me. At the wedding, the cars were incorporated into the festivities. It was a fabulous time in a gorgeous location! I’m so happy to have discovered Spring Valley Chapel!
