About Lehigh Valley Zoo

Weddings are a wonderful occasion to celebrate, and Lehigh Valley Zoo offers a beautiful, unique setting for you and your guests. Nestled in the heart of the Trexler Nature Preserve, the Lehigh Valley Zoo is home to more than 300 animals representing over 125 species.Lehigh Valley Zoo offers your guests an unforgettable backdrop amongst wildlife and nature to celebrate your special day! By utilizing our picuresque location options, you can transport your guests to the beaches of South Africa, to the outback of Australia, along the great North American plains or to a farm in our own backyard.

When you rent the Zoo, not only are you giving your guests a day to remember, but you are providing wildlife species from around the world an opportunity to thrive. Lehigh Valley Zoo’s core purpose – to save species from extinction and engage people – inspires our work, our conservation education programs, and our leadership in wildlife conservation. The Lehigh Valley Zoological Society, a nonprofit organization, is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the international organization that sets the highest standards for zoos and aquariums. The revenue generated through rentals, catering and event enhancements helps support the daily cost to feed and care for the Zoo’s animal ambassadors, a cost of $1,900 each day. At Lehigh Valley Zoo, you will hear the wildlife success story of America’s National Bird, learn about the most endangered wolves in the world and learn how your local Zoo is helping conserve an animal species already extinct in the wild. Renting the Zoo helps enhance the lives of these animals and helps us do our part to engage and educate Zoo guests year-round.

    Penguins for the win!

    LV zoo attended our wedding with penguins in tow! They were so adorable and the perfect touch to our special day. Guests got to take photos with them and their handlers got to share some fun information about them and how to help their habitats.

    I had a wedding at the Lehigh Valley Zoo in July and had a FANTASTIC experience. Alan Raisman was very helpful and incredibly accommodating the entire time. Whenever we had any question or issue, he answered or resolved it quickly. This was especially helpful as I planned the wedding in just a few months! During the wedding he and his staff were always there to help make the wedding run smoothly (and he helped make it better than I could have done alone).

    We decided to actually get married on the little island in the otter arena and not only was it really, really, really neat to look back at all of our loved ones in the amphitheater, but it made for some amazing photos. This was actually my favorite part of the we

    My husband and I chose to have our reception at the Lehigh Valley Zoo after we realized our guest list was going way over what my parents yard could handle. Alan, the event coordinator, was my favorite vendor to work with. Anything (and I mean ANYTHING) you needed, Alan and his staff were happy to assist with. The zoo also doesn’t charge you an arm and a leg to rent like most venues would, the cost is equal to what it takes to feed the animals for one day! We were fortunate to have a beautiful day but indoor accommodations are available. We were even able to choose two interactive exhibits that we could open up to our guests during cocktail hour (feeding the rainbow Lorikeets nectar out of our hands was a crowd favorite). Also, while you may need to book other venues a year or more in advance, the zoo has most weekends open. We booked our date a few months before our big day. So, if you’re looking for something a little bit different for your wedding day, I highly recommend the Lehigh Valley Zoo. Our day was perfect.

    We were fortunate enough to work with Alan and the gang at the Lehigh Valley Zoo when we performed at a wedding last August. The venue is great! Ample dance floor room, ample seating and staging area, and a myriad of creative locations for your ceremony. Where else can you have peacocks strolling around your reception? An added bonus was being able to stroll around the reception and check out the animals. A really fun yet lovely location. Alan was a true professional! We hope to work with the Lehigh Valley Zoo again.
