I had a great time working with Jackie at the Indianapolis Zoo! Jackie is extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help answer any questions I had. She gave so many great recommendations on vendors, decor, and timeline - I don't think my wedding would have been anywhere near as amazing as it was without her. The day of the wedding, Jackie was not working, but Kayli did an excellent job coordinating our day of the wedding. If you get married at the zoo, you pretty much have a built in day-of planner! I have received so many compliments on the location of my wedding. Visit the zoo and you won't be disappointed in your choice!

We had our wedding reception in the Dolphin Pavilion and it was beautiful! The team did a wonderful job making sure everything was perfect.
I absolutely love working with the whole staff at the Indianapolis Zoo. Everyone works hard to make sure the day is perfect and the whole venue is stunning. I can't say enough nice things about the zoo and the people who work there.
Working with the Indianapolis Zoo, and especially Jackie & Miranda, always makes the event less stressful for our couples, and even the vendors who provide services. You can always count on them to give excellent services, and always with a smile.
The Indianapolis Zoo And White River Gardens is one of my favorite venues to suggest to a bride & groom. They offer so many different spaces and the staff works wonderfully with all the vendors to make a perfect team on Wedding Day.
