Eva and Rajesh captured the rustic romance vibe perfectly for their wedding in Maryland. Along with Kirsten Marie Photography, they had a gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony at…wait for it…The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore! You will mostly definitely have to come back later this morning to see one of the cute and furry “guests” at their reception! I’m so impressed by Eva’s DIY skills (check out the tutus on the flower girls!) and all of the pretty little touches that they used to make their wedding so personal and unique. Oh and don’t miss the gorgeous florals from Whole Foods!
From Eva: We had our wedding a the Maryland Zoo because we wanted a unique venue and a relaxed atmosphere and we got a penguin to come to happy hour! We chose pink and burlap colors for that whole rustic romance look.
More from Eva: We made all of our decorations our selves such as the wedding arch, the burlap aisle and table runners and the girls umbrellas. But our favorite DIY was the girls tutu dresses super easy and super inexpensive. We used a Mexican Mariachi song as our bridal processional to honor my father.
