“It’s opener, out there, in the wide, open air.”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
So these were celebrations we had eagerly anticipated. I knew that whatever kind of spectacular was planned for this wedding, Claudia and Benj would make it personal to them and the ones they love.
Their celebrations kicked off the night before the wedding with a drinks party held at Dartmoor Zoological Park after the zoo was closed. The only requirement for their guests was to dress in their best animal costume. And, boy, they did not disappoint. There were flocks of penguins, tigers galore, anatomically correct moths, and an entire zoo stitched to a single t-shirt. There was incredibly beautiful live music played by different musicians, all part of the wedding party and much, much wild dancing to be had. They know how to party.
As for the quote above, well, Claudia’s grandmother read ‘Oh the places you’ll go’ during the ceremony the following day, so apt for two bright stars as these. I just cannot wait to share the wedding tomorrow.
