When looking for a venue we knew we wanted a place that would represent our unique personalities. The zoo was just that. Our ceremony took place at the Trout River Plaza with the reception at Range of ... Read more the Jaguar. Our guests took a train ride from the entrance to the ceremony site. To this day our guests are still talking about how cool that was. After the ceremony we took our photos on the carousel and they look incredible!!! Everyone got to enjoy looking at the animals on exhibit at Range of the Jaguar during cocktail hour. The animals were pretty active at night. We even got to hear the Jaguar roar. It was super exciting and very memorable. Christine and her staff were truly amazing and such a pleasure to work with. Any time we had questions she was there to help out and give answers. She made this a worry free process. The zoo was set up beautifully. It was everything we wanted and more. We can't sing her praises enough!! Many people don't know the zoo has their own catering service which is totally different than their daytime food service. Let me tell you this is such a hidden gem. Chef Steve can make anything you're looking for. ALL of the food was delicious from the appetizers to the buffet style dinner. If you're looking for a venue that is truly one of a kind and really easy to work with this is your place. I highly recommend it.

We had our ceremony in the Asian gardens and our reception in the range of the jaguar. Our guests were able to see the animals in their enclosures. So awesome, very unique. We were very happy with it!!
