An Elephant Entrance (And More!) At This Wedding In Zimbabwe

Move aside, wedding dogs. This couple had elephants and giraffes at their wedding! After falling in love as student athletes at Seton Hall University (she played field hockey, he was a football player) and marrying in the US, the couple traveled to the bride’s home country of Zimbabwe to have their amazing African wedding celebration. The wedding took place at a safari lodge in Harare, Zimbabwe complete with elephant wedding transportation, traditional dancers, a gorgeous backdrop and a few American traditions too. A pair of giraffes even showed up to the ceremony to eat from the tree that served as the couple’s altar. Christopher Scott took the amazing photos below!
