Photographer: David Morris and Katie Joy of COMPLETE weddings + events
Location: BREC Baton Rouge Zoo
Grace and Ryan met in 2013 while working on a film. Ryan was directing and Grace was Art Director when they quickly discovered they worked well together. In 2014 they had their first date at the Baton Rouge Zoo, little did they know that day would set the stage for their wedding, three years later.
In 2016, Ryan designed the ring he would propose with and tried to decide how he would pop the question. When a couple of friends invited them to go to the zoo, he instantly knew that was the place. After their first date, and Ryan’s proposal, the zoo had become such a special place to the couple it seemed only fitting to get married there too.
As videographers, when they would see something they liked at a wedding they were shooting, often times they would glance at one another across the room and nod, silently mouthing “We have to do this at ours!”
The Baton Rouge Zoo was happy to host their first wedding, especially for Grace and Ryan. Their special day included family and friends, along with all the furry animals at the zoo. From train rides, to music and food, their wedding was a night no one will forget.
