    I highly recommend the Cincinnati Zoo for weddings. The staff at the zoo were amazing to work with and took care of everything for us...it was like having a wedding planner without the extra cost.

    If you are looking for a wedding venue that will offer your guests an unforgettable experience, then the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is the place for you! You get a beautiful venue, amazing food and beverages, and some very special animal guests. If I had to do it all over again I would do it the same way at the zoo!!
