Katrina and Colin wanted something different for their wedding celebration. They wanted to have a daytime wedding at a location where their guests would have something to do after the ceremony and lunch reception. The Denver Zoo was the perfect place!
Katrina wore a beautiful dress from Anna Be Bridal Boutique and had spectacular hand painted peacock inspired shoes by Nora Karen.
The carousel was the ideal location for Colin to see Katrina for the first time in her wedding dress. They then toured the zoo for pre-ceremony photos. Kent Meireis and Meghan Russell had fun taking them to the various locations. The zoo visitors had a great time watching the couple (or princess as one little girl said) have their wedding pictures taken.
Katrina and Colin are tea lovers and wanted to have a tea bar instead of alcohol.
In place of toasting glasses they had special animal tea cups.
During the tea reception the zoo provided animal demonstrations.
The zoo’s caterer, Taste of the Wild, made delicious hors d’oeuvres and lunch with a Mediterranean flare. Kelley Farrell created a beautiful and yummy wedding cake as well as a small vegan/gluten-free one for the bride’s father and several of the guests.
Newberry Brothers did a fabulous job with the flowers and decor. The centerpieces, table names and escort cards all had a tea theme.
Favors were little jars filled with loose teas.
It was such a fun wedding!
