Kelly + Wes’s Summer Wedding at the Zoo| Birmingham, AL

fb1

Kelly and Wes both work at the Birmingham Zoo, so it was definitely a fun and special experience spending their wedding day there! To start the day, everyone got ready at Mountain Brook Baptist Church. Kelly’s dog, Whiskey, even came over to join in for a few fun bridal photos! After their ceremony, guests headed over to the Zoo, where they were greeted by Kelly and Wes with some of their favorite animals. Kelly actually raised Sarabi, a gorgeous serval (wild cat), since she was just a newborn kitty! They clearly have a very special bond, which was amazing to see. Wes got some photos with his favorite bird (a beautiful Sulpher-crested cockatoo) named Big Mama! They are also very close, and it was so fun seeing them interact!

Everyone danced all night under a canopy of lights in the pavilion at the Trails of Africa section of the Zoo. This was such a fun and unique wedding, and I’m so happy Jenni Pinola could be there to capture it with me! Thank you, Kelly and Wes, for asking us to be part of your day! Enjoy the photos!

It was so fun taking photos of these two together! Props to Kelly for keeping Whiskey so clean that he could walk (and roll) all over her dress without even leaving a paw print!
