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.Sent on 09/09/2019
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.

We were married here about a week ago, it was more than we expected, we still have guest coming up to us saying how cool it was. The staff was amazing, we even had a medical emergency and the zoo had medical staff on site and responded so quickly I barley knew what was going on. I would highly recommend them.Sent on 10/22/2018
