One place on earth I'm most in love with has to be Malibu, California. This wedding shot by the talented Ian Grant of is full of color, whimsy and believe it or not, actual zoo animals.
Ian says: We joined Aaron and Irene for their Saddlerock Ranch wedding out in the wilds of Malibu. This venue is so cool--it's literally a zoo. In order to get to the location you have to drive past all sorts of cool animals like zebras and emus. not to mention there are beautiful vineyards all over, which make for great photo ops! Any venues where you feel like you're leaving the city and heading out into the wilderness is okay in our book.
Irene says: We got engaged in Napa, so we wanted to run with something that emphasized the outdoors and nature. Despite growing up in LA, we both attended collage on the East Coast and learned to appreciate any rare sunshine and warmth that came our way. The second we saw Saddlerock we knew this would be the perfect place to share with our close friends and family, and emphasize our love for the outdoors and sun!"
