This couple and their dream team of vendors have created a whole new style of wedding, one I am unofficially naming Zoo Chic. Because never, ever have I seen such an elegant wedding worthy of the grandest of ballrooms amidst the flamingos and penguins. And for that, I simply must thank Emily Clarke Events and Branching Out. Because this Fort Worth Zoo wedding captured by Andrea Polito Photography is practically perfection, and you can see why right here.
From Andrea Polito Photography… Lyndsey and Reid wanted a unique wedding that could also accommodate their large amount of well-wishers. The answer to their dilemma was the Fort Worth Zoo. With planning and coordination by Emily Clarke Events, the happy couple’s dream wedding came together beautifully with lush white floral and whimsical zoo details like elephant vases and grey animal table markers. Additionally, a gospel choir preceded the bride into the ceremony singing “Oh Happy Day,” guests were treated to a live animal show during the cocktail hour and Lyndsey’s grandmother arranged for a live-event painter to capture the evening as a special gift. After slipping into a gorgeous exit dress, Lyndsey and her father danced the Merengue and then the happy couple were off! Lyndsey and Reid are a truly adorable couple and could not have been more deserving of their perfect wedding day.
