Shuttle to Harusi

The wedding guests arrived at the Harusi Lawn ceremony site via shuttles, and curious cheetahs were looking on to greet them.

For the ceremony at Harusi Lawn, soft rose petals lined the aisle leading to the bower-shaped altar, where the groom awaited his bride under the dappled sunlight of the trees. Flowers in shades of coral and purple adorned the chairs as the guests welcomed the bride and her father, and the ceremony began.

Rachel and Abe exchanged their "I do's" under a magnificent acacia tree with views of the African Plains as the picturesque background. An uninvited but most welcome guest stopped by and curiously craned his neck to check on the beaming newlyweds.

The reception at Hunte Nairobi Pavilion brought wild flair to the happy day. The dinner tables were named after Safari Park animals, which were featured on whimsical place cards. Details like adorable golden animal figurines carrying notes to thank the guests for coming added special touches to the decor.
