Beautiful, unique venue!
My mother first suggested getting married at the zoo. My husband and I are both animal lovers, and Brookfield Zoo was a beloved place that shaped our interest in animals and science as children. We are so happy that we found them. Brookfield Zoo is truly a one-of-a-kind location.Sent on 06/03/2019
To start, one of the major pluses on our end was that the zoo handles catering, venue setup, and open bar. I was finishing up my doctoral degree and my husband was working overtime, which made talking to multiple vendors difficult. Having most everything provided in-house was so convenient and made our planning process manageable.
But seriously, everything was just so perfect! Our sales manager was Luis. Throughout the months we spent planning, he was a consummate professional and very responsive to emails with questions and general concerns. I couldn't have chosen somebody better to help us.
But furthermore, there's just so many people who were so professional. The staff helping at our wedding, EVERYONE, simply went above and beyond. My guests all talked about how much they loved it, and many had stories about the excellent customer service they had.
The food provided in-house was absolutely delicious. Even better, the zoo was very sensitive to dietary restrictions and we were able to talk to the head chef during our tasting so we were able to explain these restrictions.
This is an elegant, beautiful venue that's perfect for anyone who loves animals. You get to have a cocktail hour in one of the animal exhibits, and the zoo is a beautiful place to take photographs at. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

Magical Day! Couldn't ask for anything more!
Our wedding at the Zoo was wonderful!! And everything was so simple and stress free.
We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all at the zoo and at 3 locations within the zoo. Our guests loved it. The food was phenomenal and our guests raved about it!
It was so stress free. We dropped our decorations off at the zoo the day before and the zoo staff handled all setup themselves.
Thanks to all the zoo staff that made our day magical, especially Luis and Caitlyn, working with them made everything go so smoothly.Sent on 09/09/2019

Beautiful and Unique Venue
My husband and I had our wedding at the Brookfield Zoo Nov 3, 2018. I Highly suggest working with Luis Heldt-Alvarez. His kindness, honesty and genuine desire to make your wedding special was one of many reasons that Brookfield Zoo is a fantastic and undoubtably unique wedding venue. Underwater dolphin is a fantastic ceremony site! The dolphins almost seemed to dance in the background as we said “I do.” Cocktails in front of the giraffes had our guests having the time of their lives. We still get compliments on how amazing, creative and unique our wedding was (statements even made at our friends’ own weddings). Luis and the BZ crew orchestrate a fantastic performance in making sure you don’t have to worry about a single detail in order for you to truly enjoy your day. Highly Recommend.Sent on 10/10/2019
