Look at these cuties! With an adorably in-love couple, and THIS backdrop, the result is stunning! I met with Shelby awhile back to talk to her about her wedding and how her and Luke met. Shelby is a Navy helicopter pilot, and Luke is an Air Force Contracting Officer. They met back in day, when Luke did an exchange semester to the United States Naval Academy, where Shelby just so happened to be. They soon fell in love! He proposed on New Years on the pier by their favorite restaurant in Pensacola, FL, where they were both living at the time. She obviously said YES, which led to this dream wedding at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park! They are both very laid back people, as well as outgoing, fun, and share a love of exploring and traveling! Their wedding theme carried that hobby of theirs, with a globe to sign, replacing the guest book. Each guest also had little suitcase travel tags as their seat placers for the reception. Their ceremony was held at the African Plains Overlook, which literally was over looking the waterhole of the safari’s large enclosure, filled with giraffes, water buffalo, rhinos, and many more exotic animals from Africa. As the sun went down, the lions started to roar as guests headed to the reception to dance the night away! What a fun experience!! Congratulations to these two lovebirds, who seriously giggled with excitement every time they looked over at each other. Happy day!
