Perfect Brookfield Zoo wedding?! Kasia & Zach planned more than just a wedding – they planned the adventure!
On Oct 19th last year, Kasia & Zach Brookfield Zoo’s wedding was the perfect representation of how sweet, adventurous and loving couple they are! From the way they interact with each other, to the way they treat their friends, and even to their kindness toward me, there is no doubt that they are just as beautiful inside as they are outside. It was a beautiful, fun, full of laughs, and full of so much love wedding I will never forget. Scroll down the blog and view over 100 shots. Join them for the adventure!

We got so lucky with the weather as it turned out to be a perfect October day. Beautiful blue skies and white puffy clouds. Trees covered in shades of red, orange, and yellows. The fall colors started to pop. It felt magical.
We started off the day at the bride’s house. You gotta see what Kasia’s decided to do with her old bridesmaids dresses she had laying down in the closet (some of the very first shots… ;)) Fun idea, right? After all the getting ready shots, there was the time for a touching, traditional blessing. The church ceremony followed. After the vows exchange and wedding wishes from the guests at the church, we finally headed to the venue and to have the unforgettable Brookfield Zoo wedding.

Once we got there, we didn’t have a lot of time as it was getting dark (thanks to autumn’s shorter days!), so we immediately lopped around the zoo (had like 30 minutes before the sunset). Some of the animals were still playful and active (including favorite giraffes) while some already asleep. The giraffes were infatuated with Kasia’s dress! They started to get close, but we had to leave to visit another spot.
After it got really dark, the reception officially started. The room was beautifully decorated while feeling so warm and cozy.

‘Forget the butterflies. I feel the whole zoo when I am with you’!

The night ended with dancing, toasts, and tons of laughter, all surrounded by the zoo life. We indulged in delicious food and a gorgeous cake. The cake I would rather frame, not eat, as it was so pretty! Everyone laughed and danced and had a really, really good time.
Kasia & Zach, thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous day with me and for your kindness and hospitality. I’m so thankful for you! Wishing you a life full of love and happiness!
