zoo wedding

I had the honor of being invited to my good derby friend’s [intimate] wedding ceremony at the Houston Zoo.
While Smack recited the vows, her voice cracked. It was the sweetest thing.
And I hate myself for almost crying at the sound of it. 🙂
 My “date,” Kiki, is right next to me. Followed by Punch [recognizable from my Atlanta derby post] and her “date,” Spite, another sweet derby friend of mine. 🙂
Some of the Zoo keepers brought out a few animals for a kind of show and tell. The Leopard tortoise, with her little overbite, was adorable and started crawling towards my camera. And, of course, I thought the [great horned?] owl was gorgeous. The poor thing was blind in one eye. Luckily she is being cared for. 🙂

The tunnel that ran through the piranha tank was a highlight of the evening. Many an instagram came from that sucker.

p.s. for more wedding photos, check out Kiki’s latest blog post.



  1. Sweet! My post is coming later today. Yeah for matching posts and blogger dates. 🙂

  2. That tunnel is awesome. For a second I thought the meerkat cutout was a dude dressed up in a meerkat suit 😀

  3. This is AMAZING! What a fantastic idea for a wedding! It seems like it was a blast. I love that tunnel thing, hahaha.

  4. I love this! I work weddings + events at a museum so I totally appreciate when couples use zoos, museums, and other unique venues!
