Charlene Grabowski & Alex Valletta Wedding

On September 16, 2017 Charlene Grabowski and Alex Valletta tied the knot right here at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. This sweet couple was an absolute joy to work with, and their special fall day was truly gorgeous.

Alex and his wedding party arrived at the zoo early to take some photos at the exhibits before closing time.

Hmmm… Alex seems to have a “Go To” pose, doesn’t he? 

When Charlene arrived, they did a “no look first look” in our open air aviary.

The ceremony was held in our Courtyard with Charlene’s brother as the officiant.

The banquet room was decorated with simple, elegant floral arrangements and a fall palette of burgundy and gold.

The patio was definitely the place to be once the sun went down.

We’re so happy for Charlene and Alex, and we wish them lifetime of joy, love and prosperity.
