Eco-Friendly Bronx Zoo Wedding with an Environmental Mission Statement
Alice and Jonathan weren’t just thinking of themselves when they chose to have a Bronx Zoo Wedding in the summer. With an environmental mission statement in mind, these environmentalists had a cause they wanted to advocate for. These two spend their spare time outdoors making places cleaner than when they found it. It was really important for this couple to have a no-waste wedding with plenty of plant-based food options. Additionally, they wanted to educate their guests about keystone and endangered species, and just enjoy being around some great animals while they celebrated their wedding with a cause! As animal lovers, they have nicknamed each other bunny and otter. We were so glad to be a part of their adventure!
We were all smiles when their friends came down the aisle in animal costumes!
The dress attire (or costume) theme was flora & fauna – but please no leathers, feathers or animal skins! Faux animal costumes only!
These beautiful peace lily centerpieces were re-purposed from the aisle at the ceremony.
Alice and Jonathan were so thoughtful with their details, even down to the endangered species, fair trade chocolate bar’s they gave as favors
Each table was marked with an important species!
