    Memorable Wedding

    I am so happy that I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Nyami Nyami River Lodge. The setting was gorgeous and the cost was very affordable compared to other venues I had checked out. To make the day even more special and memorable we opted to rent an animal to entertain guests before the ceremony (an alpaca) and during the cocktail hour (cockatiel). Our guests had a wonderful time and were complimenting our choice of venue. The wedding director/coordinator at the zoo, Erin, was amazing and so attentive. If you’re looking for a wedding venue that is unique and gorgeous, I highly recommend you having it at the Nyami Nyami River Lodge.

    The BEST Wedding Venue

    The Nyami Nyami Lodge at the Brevard Zoo is absolutely the BEST place to have your wedding and/or reception. The scenery is amazing (giraffes as your backdrop...Hello!!) with plenty of room. The interior can be as casual or as elegant as your vision (and budget) allow. And best of all, Erin Gracie, the Event Coordinator, is absolutely a JOY to worth with. She is soooo helpful and always quick to respond to any question you might have. (Trust me, I asked everything you can think of.) She will offer recommendations, suggestions, thoughts...whatever you ask for, she will provide!
