People often ask us about the quirkiest wedding venues we’ve photographed, and our hands down favorite is the San Francisco Zoo. Where else can you get married on the African Savannah with zebras and giraffes? Ariel and Aron had an epic zoo wedding complete with a baby alligator and lots of other cuddly creatures making an appearance during the cocktail hour, and guests were treated to a ride on the carousel.
Having a fun and unique wedding was really important to Ariel and Aron. We started out at Stanford University for portraits since both Ariel and Aron are alumni. For their reception, they love to dance, therefore contra dancing was a big part of the celebration. Contra dancing is form of line dancing. Most of the guests had no idea how to dance this way, but the dance caller provided instruction, and everyone was dancing in minutes, and having an amazing time. Congrats to Ariel and Aron!
