MEET BROOKLYN

This wedding venue was a first for me and I was so happy that I was able to work with Melissa and Brian to craft their perfect zoo reception. The couple were married at the groom’s home church, followed with their reception in the Ndoki Lodge at Riverbanks Zoo & Gardens. As guests arrived they were able to view elephants, monkeys, birds and gorillas on their way to the lodge.

Melissa was excellent to work with as she knew the vision she had for her day and it was just a matter of crafting the perfect creative team to bring her vision to life. Additionally, their wedding was surrounded by love and family and I enjoyed every minute of getting to know their family and friends. At the end of the night, the wedding ended with Around the Block Photography capturing a photo of both families all together.
