Romantic Elegance at the Zoo

Inspired by the European zoological gardens, wedding planner Shadow Anderson of The Chaos Coordinator wanted to show couples another side of the unique wedding venue, the Central Florida Zoo. The design was really enhanced by embracing the simplicity that the venue offers. Lush florals and greenery gave that stunning European flair. Dusty Blue tied in all of the elements on this sophisticated and romantic design.

“Our goal was to show couples another side of the unique venue by embracing and enhancing the simplicity that it offers. We were inspired by European zoological gardens. They began with educational exhibits and various gardens and walking paths. We dreamed up a fete filled with lush floral and greenery with a European flair using Dusty Blues to tie in all of the elements. The floral had an emphasis on sophistication with a cascading and organic feel. The watercolor and script stationery design added the perfect hint of softness and romance. And of course, we couldn’t about our favorite resident at the venue so we added golden giraffes to the three tiered hand-painted cake. The bridal styling offers two different looks that focus on intricate lace details. We kept hair and makeup soft and simplistic.” – Shadow Anderson of The Chaos Coordinator
