when kristin first contacted us, one of the first things she shared with us was that she was best friends with one of our brides megan¬†which we love. and thennnn… well then she told us where her venue was and we were beyond excited. see one of her and then fianc√© tim’s favorite things to do was visiting zoos together. whenever they visited a new city, one of the first stops would be the local zoo… so when choosing a perfect place to say ‘i do’, the virginia zoological park in norfolk just seemed right and it was perfect. in fact, they were so excited about a weekend at the zoo that they booked a day after session which was amazing! the day of the wedding, we got to the park early and walked around to familiarize ourselves with the layout and which animals were where. then we met up with kristin and tim as they got ready for their first look – they were both anxious and excited and when they saw each other for the first time, it was as though no one else in the world existed. soon after their bridal party and families met up with us and even though it was a steamy day, the zoo provided us all plenty of shady relief. they were married by tim’s father on a super cool deck area by the red pandas and then an intimate ceremony followed. the next day, mother nature provided us with a much cooler day and we had so much fun wandering the park, taking photographs and reflecting on how wonderful their wedding day was.

kristin + tim, thank you so much for such a wonderful and truly memorable weekend! we wish you much love and happiness as you begin your life together in colorado :)
