Laura’s dress for the ceremony was incredibly unique and beautiful pink gown which I imagine was modeled after Cinderella’s ball gown complete with little slippers. I have never seen a bouquet as memorable as Laura’s. It was made of broaches some of which were antiques and I believe one of which belonged to her grandmother. Her bridesmaids carried purple bouquets accented by a broach as well.
Beauty Bar did a fantastic job with Laura’s and the girls make up and hair which held up to the heat and humidity incredibly well. The lovely Gesu church was air conditioned which made everyone happy.
Glendale Flowers and the Toledo Zoo caterers really came through with the table decor at the The Toledo Zoo Reception. The Zoo was the perfect venue for their guests to enjoy a fun reception complete with an African Savanna cocktail hour, train rides, and a merry-go-round. Guests danced the night away to big and swing by the fabulous Swingmania.
Toledo Zoo weddings offer so many great opportunities for photos and with this one in particular I saw so many awesome details throughout the day. I loved the placeholders with little birds sitting on them, the guest book full of Audubon bird illustrations and the beautifully decorated tables complete with lamps that glowed in the dark.
Despite the 100 degree temperatures Laura, Hunter and their wedding party seemed to have a great time and we made some awesome images.They were especially excited to spend time in the cool (temperature-wise) Polar Exhibit!
What a great day with a great couple and their family and friends!
