The Virginia Zoo Project

March 20, 2014  •  1 Comment

I was recently lucky enough to be asked to be a part of a big project at the Virginia Zoo. The team consisted of some amazing professionals in the Hampton Roads area. Janel Keen of Vivid Expressions took the reins on the project creating the concept, floral arrangements and putting the team together. Liz Alfier from Behind the Veil Studio did an amazing job with hair and makeup for the models. Maya Couture provided the beautiful dress worn by one of the models. You'll see in the photos that two of the models are actually my wife and I. She wore her original wedding dress from our wedding and I wore a suit straight out of my closet. Stage Right Lighting provided all the lighting for the Reception and Ceremony scenes. Josh and Kelsey from the VA Zoo were very accommodating. They hung out with us until WAY later than expected. I think we were at the Zoo until about 10pm that night for a total of about 6-7 hours. The only thing I will say is I still have not received my free Baby Red Panda that I was promised. I'm kind of upset about that...

The uplighting and pin spots from Stage Right really help to create ambiance and show off the center pieces.
