Wild and Chic Outdoor Zoo Wedding in Palm Springs

by:


Palm Desert zoo wedding

We’re totally loving Janice and Dawson’s wildly chic wedding at the Living Desert Zoo in Palm Springs! They combined their shared love for animals, design, and bold color to bring their wedding vision to life in turquoise and gold ( just look at her amazing dress!).

As a designer/engineer duo at Disney, they brought their own style to the table with custom invites, menus, and (our favorite!) animal cracker boxes for their guests! So cute! Get the full story below, and grab a closer look at all the details in the full gallery captured by Mary Costa Photography.

The groom's father designed their ceremony arch, and guests could feed giraffes during cocktail hour. The incredible Mary Costa captured their day perfectly, and the muted desert palette looked gorgeous with their pops of turquoise and some exotic florals.
