A wedding at a zoo sounds like some of my best childhood dreams come true, and that’s precisely what this team of Alexandra Wallace, Eventful Wedding Planning, and Eden Floral pulled off. The Santa Barbara Zoo provided the perfect location, complete with a sweet giraffe who joined the party! What’s not to love?

From the photographer, Alexandra Wallace: This inspiration shoot took place at one of my favorite places on earth! The Santa Barbara Zoo has been named the Audrey Hepburn of zoos – petite, charming, and beautiful! When designing the shoot, I wanted to make sure we incorporated fun, bohemian elements along with modern metallics. It was important to me that we maintained elements of wildlife and animals, without the cheesiness of a kid’s birthday party. Easily the highlight of our day was getting to invite Michael the giraffe into some photos! He was happy to hang out with our cute couple while they shared a few smooches ;)

    Wow, very interesting! I really love the idea, and I bet it would be so fun to share your special day with so many great animals and such a ethereal location.

  • Oh! I love these! I recently did a shoot with the Zeppelin dress – such a great designer. These are lovely shots.

    This wedding is amazing in so many ways. Love the theme and venue. The couple is beautiful and seem so relaxed. The brides dress is gorgeous. Flowers beautiful. Would have loved to seen a bigger picture of all the tables for the guests.
