When you get married at the Santa Barbara Zoo in California, you’re combining two amazing things…weddings and animals! Noheli chose this beautiful venue because of the amazing weather. “The zoo had such a great climate. There were clear skies and 360 degree views of amazing landscapes.” Plus the Santa Barbara zoo brings flamingos to your cocktail hour!

Noheli and Kenneth were married on a beautiful July day at the Santa Barbara Zoo in front of their loved ones and other wild guests. Noheli’s favorite part of the day was “taking pictures with the bridal party, laughing, having fun, and being offered champagne during the photoshoots. It was so much fun watching everyone have a good time together.” Photographer Tayler Ashley happens to share a good friend in common with the bride, making the day easy to capture for all.

Noheli & Kenneth were beyond excited this day had come and they fully embraced every moment. The entire day was stress free and full of love. From the first look to dancing on the dance floor to eating cake. Noheli’s advice is to “Keep calm. Things have a way of working out. Have several moments to look around you, and EAT your cake! If someone tried to take a picture (literally everyone will call you over), I let them know I wanted to have a moment to eat my cake. It was very Marie Antoinette of me, but it was my day. You want to remember the taste of everything!” That is solid advice from a beautiful bride! Congratulations to the couple.
