    Great venue!

    Our wedding at the National Aviary was great! The staff were very accommodating and ready to pitch in and help with anything we needed. I'm glad we chose the Aviary!

    We loved having our wedding at the Aviary - all of their wedding coordinators were easy to work with and everyone was very helpful on the day of our wedding. Our guests loved all of the birds, especially the penguin and the owl that came around to the tables at dinner! It was great having indoor and outdoor space, and we received a lot of compliments about the dinner food (Atria's) as well.
