Santa Barbara Zoo Wedding | Noheli + Kenneth
When you get married at the Santa Barbara Zoo, you’re combining my two favorite things…weddings and animals! The moment I read the word “Flamingle” on the timeline, my excitement went through the roof. Yes, the Santa Barbara zoo brings flamingos to your cocktail hour! I mean, how freaking cool is this? Noheli chose this beautiful venue because of the amazing weather. “The zoo had such a great climate. There were clear skies and 360 degree views of amazing landscapes.”
Noheli just so happens to be best friends with one of my longest and dearest friends, which is how we met! It was such a cool experience having long time friends at the wedding. Not to mention Noheli + Kenneth’s family were the absolute SWEETEST! My favorite part of the day was Kenneth’s dance with his mom, they remixed all kinds of amazing songs together and got downnnnn on the dance floor. Noheli’s favorite part of the day was “taking pictures with the bridal party, laughing, having fun, and being offered champagne during the photoshoots. it was so much fun watching everyone have a good time together.” I guess that means I did my job right! :)
This whole day was stress free and full of love. You could tell that Noheli + Kenneth were beyond excited this day had come and they fully embraced every moment. Noheli’s advice was to “keep calm. Things have a way of working out. Have several moments to look around you, and EAT your cake! if someone tried to take a picture ( literally everyone will call you over) I let them know I wanted to have a moment to eat my cake. It was very Marie Antoinette of me, but it is your day. You want to remember the taste of everything!” I couldn’t agree more!
