We wanted an outdoor venue in Calgary, but not a golf course. We were left with liking Spruce Meadows and the Al Azhar (believe it or not). At the end of the day, we just couldn't justify spending all that extra money on Spruce and we choose the Al Azhar. I was a little bit leery at first wondering how we were going to decorate this place but a bit saved on food and venue goes a long was with decorating. We were married on the lawn by the lagoon there on site and our reception was in the lower ballroom. It was an absolute perfect day from start to end and the Al Azhar was a big part of that. Ritch (event coordinator) was so accommodating throughout the planning process and even brought a few things in to their standard bar (as per our request). This venue has excellent value and for anyone who is having a fairly large wedding I would highly recommend it!

The Al Azhar Shrine Centre was so beautiful! We got married outside in front of the gazebo by the water, the area is so gorgeous, there was no need for decorating outdoors. We just used rose petals and bubbles.

Ritch, the guy in charge, was so friendly and easy to work with. When Ritch realized that we were in a tight budget, he threw in the projector and screen free of cost. They are upfront with all costs involved. Their are no hidden costs. Ritch was available to answer questions at any time and always repsonded right away.

The food was amazing. They served cheesecake for dessert and their were no packaged desserts , they were all made from scratch. We had the Steak Madagascar. I don't know why, but I was not expecting the food to be as good as it was. I just figured since it was buffet, it would be so-so, but it was delicious!

Everything was very professional.

The only thing they weren't very flexible on was special food requests for allergies since we were going with the buffet. They did make an effort though.

I highly reccomend it!

Our guests loved the venue. The banquet room had a balconey for getting fresh air. It's such a beautiful place. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. I was hesitant when I first saw the pictures of the main floor banquet room, but it turned out so nice.
