If live animals aren’t your thing, there is always a dino ready for their close-up in DinoDigs, and they are quite photogenic. Our t-rex, Stan, will even hold a custom-made sign in his mouth to commemorate your wedding or event and act as a photo op for you and your guests!

One of our all-time favorite spots to capture photos is the Sky Bridge, a glass enclosed bridge surrounded by greenery. Day or night, the glimmer of the dangling, handmade, rainbow crystal hearts will make for dazzling pictures.

Use the Sky Bridge for some intimate shots of you and your partner, or use it as a send-off location at the end of the evening to capture some fun photos of your guests wishing you well and sending you on your way as newlyweds!

  • Palm Fronds are all the rage anyway! Incorporate them in your aisle and on your reception tables.
  • Dancing Dinos! Nothing says let’s get this party started like someone dancing away in an inflatable Dino costume.
  • Consider walking down the aisle to an elegant version of the Jurassic Park theme done by violins
  • Incorporate your theme into unique centerpieces that guests are sure to love
  • Decorate your reception with tropical florals and large greenery pieces. Topping it all off with a great T-Rex sign!

Adding this meteor-defying theme always brings a fun spin and personality to your special day!
