    Beautiful venue, great staff

    Peter, our coordinator, was awesome. They were very flexible and easy to work with. They constantly checked in with us on every detail and made sure we felt comfortable and excited about our big day! The venue itself was gorgeous. We highly recommend spending the extra money for the Tropics Trail. We used it for the social hour, and it was the talk of the night. Special shout-out to Becky and Lori, who were our day-of coordinators and made the day go off without a hitch!

    We had our wedding reception at the Minnesota Zoo following our destination wedding. We started with a cocktail hour in the tropics where our guests got to have drinks and appetizers as well as walk the tropics trail and enjoy the animals. We moved to Discovery bay (the aquarium) for our dinner and dance to end the night. Our experience was great from the very beginning, the communication was excellent and our Coordinator, Peter was very patient and accomodating. On the day of the event we worked with Ami and Becky who were awesome. Becky went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. Our guests loved the reception, everyone commented that it was one of the most unique and fun weddings they had ever been to! I would highly recommend hosting your wedding at the MN Zoo if you're looking for a venue both you and your guests will love.
