Saturday May 6th 2017 Treetops, San Diego Zoo

Tonight I was at Treetops in San Diego Zoo to celebrate Shamayne & Geo’s action packed big day !!

We had a good contingent of Brits tonight, some from Rickmansworth near Watford which is about 25 miles from where I grew up !!

I got to work with some great vendors tonight .. Francine co-ordinated, it has been awesome having back to back great co-ordinators to work with (apart from Julie of course) that involve you in the wedding as a fellow vendor and don’t treat you like you work for them as has been the case pretty much every other time !!)  Bethel did her usual great job with the ceremony (and the rain held off!!) Also I got to work with Joey & April from Half Full Photography for the first time and they were awesome to work with.

At the ceremony today we had a cool Knot Ceremony, and the Geo’s sons Hunter & Harrison joined them for the sand ceremony

We then had 4 animal presentations (done in part by one of my former brides April – not the staff member in the pics – whose wedding i did in 2009 at the zoo !!)  where they brought out a Falcon, Armadillo, Porcupine and a Sloth !!

The room looked great (with my uplights of course!!)

And Twiggs Bakery provided an awesome cake !!

I also loved the idea of a different ‘Guest Book’ which I have never seen before .. They got 5 bottles of wine, and the guests signed one (which had 1,5,10,15 and 20 on them) they will open each on that anniversary and see the names that signed them

Great night for me all around as not only did we have great vendors (one last shout out to Kelli at the Zoo who was amazing, as were all the staff) but I got to play so many songs I love personally but rarely get to play, including Madness, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, New Order even Nirvana to a great dance floor.

A couple of video snippets … to ‘One Step Beyond’ by Madness


and then Geo joined so a snippet from the end

And we ended with the fantastic English sing a long Vindaloo by Fat Les !!

A great night, long may they continue !!
