Ruby and Mike's Wedding at the Jacksonville Zoo
Ruby and Mike's wedding was set at the Jacksonville Zoo. This venue was both unique and memorable. Where else can you set up centerpieces and hear jaguars growling and birds chirping? Kudos to you both for choosing such a special place for your most special day! Ruby's bouquet was just as unique. Kelley designed a gorgeous bouquet of hydrangeas and exotic blue orchids. The centerpieces at the Jaguar Exhibit echoed Ruby's bouquet and were striking hydrangea bunches with bright blue orchids climbing antique lanterns. Katrina McCullum and the team of Made of Honor Weddings did a great job setting up the unique table markers that Ruby designed. The turquoise and black linens were the perfect backdrop for the colorful and sentimental evening.
It was a special treat for those of us present, as we looked out at the Trout River and had the fortune to see this beautiful bride as she waited for the ceremony to begin. These are the moments that make us truly happy to be doing the job that we do!
Ruby and Mike, we wish you happiness, good fortune and a very happy and long life together! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the first day of the rest of your lives as a married couple!
