    Alex was a rockstar

    On June 15, my husband and I had our reception at the wedding. Through everything Alex was such a huge help. Our wedding reception was amazing and it wouldn't have been without Alex. This wedding venue is so unique and you can do so much with it. We will remember this day for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Central Florida Zoo for an awesome wedding reception.

    Excellent wedding venue

    The Central Florida Zoo is a unique and special venue. Alex was an extraordinary wedding coordinator. We credit her with the total success of our wedding event. Also, Terrell, Sonny’s Catering Manager was great. Terrell and his team exceeded all expectations and provided outstanding service to the wedding party and our guests.

    Central Florida Zoo

    Alex and Terrell were a great tag team. They and staff from both the zoo and Sonny's were professional and had just as much fun as the rest of us. Had several people indicate it was the best wedding they have been to. Thanks for the memories.
