Leah + Jake’s chic safari (think: glamping) wedding at the Milwaukee County Zoo was in one word, unforgettable. Everything about their day was perfectly ‘them’ down to the smallest details, and Melissa of MK Social made sure the day flowed as smoothly as possible! Even more of the creatives and vendors involved are linked at the bottom of this post.
Jake proposed to Leah (and she said “yes!”) just 5 days before they left for an African safari trip. They loved their travels so much that they decided to incorporate the style + feel into their wedding day! And WOW did they ever!! Jake + Leah’s guests were greeted by signs on canvas, the same materials as glamping tents are crafted from, and lanterns everywhere. The entire ceremony and reception was also covered in greenery and African violets, which were another nod to their safari and African travels.
Congratulations Leah + Jake, and thank you for allowing me to come alongside you on such a special day! It was an honor to get to document everything about your wedding day, but most importantly the love and commitment you have for each other. Cheers to more happy memories than you can count, and I know you’ll have many more adventures throughout your marriage + your years together.
