Rain wasn’t in the plans for Taylor and Michael’s wedding day at the Riverbanks Botanical Gardens, but we made it work the best we could so they could enjoy the beautiful scenery on their wedding day!  We started the day with the couple getting ready at the gardens.

Riverbanks zoo garden wedding

Taylor and Michael added some wonder personal touches like the couple’s Jurassic Park toasting glasses and Michael’s Star Trek tie.

Taylor braved the rain for photos in the garden before the ceremony, but to make it drier for the guests, the ceremony was held inside in front of the koi painting.

The wonderful part about a wedding at the zoo is they have lots of animal encounters. The lizard took a particular interest in the bouquet.
