Picture this... a fun style bride and groom, a landmark location, and a unique halftime show between the ceremony and reception.  nikki+josh.'s Saint Louis Zoo had all of that wrapped in a perfectly planned evening. We started the day off with the gents getting ready while taking in a ball game. Take note of the Lego cuff links and velociraptor socks, my kind of details guys, great job!  We then headed to the Chase Park Plaza to grab some shots of nikki, the girls and the elegant wedding dress wrapped in light from the window.  I never had a bride come down the aisle to the Jurassic Park Theme, but wow, it fit the theme of the wedding, it fit the couple, and it was a beautiful play in to the ceremony. Just before heading into the reception nikki+josh. treated their guests to a private sea lion show.  Nikki the Sea Lion was able to grab some post ceremony kisses with the couple to kick off the show.  No need to imagine the great day, check out their story below.
