Naturally Wild Styled Shoot at the Zoo

bride_and_groom_feeding_giraffe_mn_zoo_wedding.jpg

Inspired by fresh greenery, the cutest animals, and the outdoors––our Naturally Wild Styled Shoot connects traditional with natural in the most captivating yet beautiful way.

From the bride and groom posing with zoo animals to a custom wedding dress, this unique styled shoot throws your imagination and wedding possibilities into something....well, WILD! 

We called in only the best wedding professionals to truly bring these ideas to life. And we couldn't be more thrilled with how everything turned out!! Our main photographer, Athena of Empiria Studios captured this day beautifully (just wait till you see all the photos!!!) Make sure to mention Forever Bride to Empiria Studios to receive $150 towards a wedding album. Details here!

Let's take a gander at what our dream team created, shall we? 

P.S. Feel free to sneak BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK of this styled shoot shot by Decora Topp Photography.

The natural scenery complemented the bride's custom wedding gown in the most serene way possible. The designer, Mara of Mara Marie Bridal opted for a timeless gown that doesn't compete with the backdrop. Instead, it tells a story of its own.
