After their ceremony, Leah and Blake got to feed the giraffes! Then we took a few photos of just the two of them, sans any photobombing animals, and they were able to grab a cocktail before they were introduced at their tented reception as husband and wife!
If you thought the Fort Worth Zoo was fun during the day, you should see it at night. Twinkle lights, candles and a custom marquee sign all helped shine light on the dance floor where they shared their first dance, followed by some touching toasts, and later, a sweet serenade by one of the couple’s dear friends, and one of Blake’s groomsmen, Trey. Instead of a standing ovation he gave out high fives at the end of his performance of My Wish, which was super fun.
Leah closed out the night with a special performance of her own, an intense sing along with one of her bridesmaids to the classic Destiny’s Child song, Survivor; a signature of theirs, from what I hear. 🙂
As guests lined up for the send off, Leah and Blake shared one last romantic dance before heading out through streamers to one really fun getaway car, a bright teal vintage Bronco, complete with a Just Married decal in the back (a surprise by Blake’s dad).
It really was such an incredible day, filled with so many personal touches! Thanks again for allowing us to be there to capture the fun!
