Please tell us what inspired your photoshoot.
The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is an amazing setting for a wedding – and they really wanted to showcase their unique and stunning venue. So with the help of event planner and stylist Kehrin of Jet Set Wed they set to create and amazing styled shoot that showed how to pull off a “wild wedding at the zoo.” The sweetest part about this shoot is that Kehrin found this gorgeous real-life newlywed couple at a bridal show just weeks before – and they could not have had a more perfect look. Married just a little over a month – these sweet newlyweds exuded the essence of “safari chic” love at the zoo.
Was there a specific theme or style?
The whole theme was “Safari Chic” so brides could envision a glamours wedding at the zoo. The color palette was rich deep reds with neutrals and safari animal prints layered with feathers, golds and crystals to give the feel of a luxury camp setting. The groom’s styling was inspired by a Ralph Lauren-esque Safari look. Just as if he’d come from a “high-end” safari hunt, complete with rolled up pant legs, a safari style hat and chic bowtie. The bride’s hair and makeup was reflective of a more “animalistic” wild style-to give a little fun and edge.
