The brides gorgeous mother helping her with the dress.
The wedding arch was made with mostly real flowers with some artificial ones stuck in. Up close, there were small bejeweled frames holding baby pics of the bride and groom. There were peonies (the brides favorite) which were refrigerated in the bud stage for 6 months and forced to bloom for the wedding. Click for a closer look.
Bride, groom and family (flower girl and ring bearer).
Needless to say the ring bearer had a blast all day. Here he is jumping for joy leaving the photo shoot.
Her dress was gorgeous.
This is a hint of what is yet to come. We had the Columbus Zoo transport animals for the reception. They will take them anywhere in the country. This is a baby kangaroo named Joe which The Blog Tech is holding. The flower girl is holding the kangaroos paw.
The Bride had this cake topper custom made in Russia by an artist who used photos of the bride and groom to make it look as much like them as possible.
This is the wedding cake. That huge illuminated ball is just one of many that hung from the ceiling. It's out of proportion in this pic but they are probably 25 feet or more in circumference.
Two very happy people.
Oh, we had flamingos too. This one sort of just walked around and hung out. More to come!
