I always love weddings at the Botanical Gardens at Riverbanks Zoo!  The beauty of this venue is amazing and it lends so much to every event. 

When we first met with Miranda…she was so honest about what she wanted to include and how she wanted it all to happen.  We were with her every step of the way, bringing it all together. Miranda wanted to have a bright color palette for her wedding to go along with all the bright colors in the garden.

Miranda did have a neat addition to her wedding reception….she really wanted to get the party going so she decided to bring in a Zumba instructor to get guest up and dancing through the evening!  It was wonderful entertainment….then it was topped off with an appearance of Cocky!

Miranda had the most fantastic vendors to help make her wedding everything she could possibly want!

This was so much fun!  For thier send off, they wanted to toss rose petals….but instead of a basket, we placed them in petal cones, but these were not paper cones, these were ‘plantable’ cones that guests could take them home and place them in thier gardens to remember the couple by when the wild flowers came up!!!  We created a unique set up for them to be presented on by making the ‘curly willow’ tree.

The strawberry trees- I LOVE the craved fruit shaped like zoo animals!

Clark Berry was so kind to give me this amazing shot of the couple in the garden!

Well…..Miranda named us her ‘dream team’ (she is so cute) but this was her wedding ‘crew’:

Clark and Becki Berry along with James and Marianna Player…..talk about talent!!!
