It’s weddings like Nicole and James’ that I look forward to. Not only were they an awesome couple with an amazing group of family and guests at their wedding, but it took place at a petting zoo!! I seriously have the best clients! We started the day off with some getting ready shots with both the guys and gals. Needless to say, the groom and the groomsman had me laughing the whole time. The groom pranked all his groomsman the night prior and brought a whole stack of suits that were incorrect and mismatched! Also, let’s talk about the awesome T-Rex bride and groom shirts that these two were wearing! Not all my couples can be this awesome sauce.
Following getting ready, everyone headed to Green Meadows Petting Farm to get hitched! Guests got to wander around to get to the ceremony barn to the calls of peacocks, and were also able pet goats, sheep, not to mention piglets, and even a baby kangaroo! The ceremony went off beautifully, with the bride riding in on her horse! These two even did their own lovely vows. After they kissed as husband and wife for the first time, they were led off to do photos with the bride’s horse, and then we headed down to the petting zoo barn to get some photos of Nicole bottle feeding a baby kangaroo, hold a baby goat, and pet the most adorable baby cow with huge ears! Her horse was even a bit jealous of the other animals getting pets and got in on the photo action!
After family photos, we all headed to the reception for the couple and their party to make their entrance. The couple came in last and began their first dance. These two have quite the moves! They pulled off some spins and dips beautifully! Dinner was served shortly thereafter, and guests raved about the food. Nicole and James went around to greet all their guests, and get hugs and congratulations from all their family. We even pulled off a huge cousin photo with all the groom’s cousins! He wasn’t kidding when he said he had a lot of cousins! Once the sun had started to go down, I pulled these two away for some backlit shots, which they champed through despite the rain that had been going on all day! After that, these two headed back into the reception to dance the night away with their guests, who all were obviously of the dancing persuasion. As the night ended, I bid these two goodbye, and I wish them nothing else but happiness! Congrats to the happy couple and without further ado, I give you this awesome petting zoo wedding of Nicole and James!
