Fun and Unique Wedding Venue

We had such a fun and great wedding here! We booked the Lotus Pavilion Sanctuary Asia for both our rehearsal dinner and the wedding venue. We were looking for a space where we could have a more casual vibe that was not a barn (the venue is all purpose you could easily make it as fancy as desired). They do require that you use their catering and bartending services (Salt & Surrey Catering) which was great for us as we liked the idea of having less vendor(s) to decide on. The food and drinks were awesome, we did a plated dinner for the rehearsal and we ran like 30 minutes past when we asked the food to be served and they still somehow had managed to keep it warm without overcooking anything. For the wedding itself we ended up having them create a custom menu for us and the catering manager, Taylor, was always very prompt at answering our questions and giving us suggestions. Portions were great for the price and we got so many compliments from our guests on how great the food was!

We also opted to have animal ambassadors at our wedding with their keepers during cocktail hour and this was such a great hit. They offer a ton of other cool animal and behind the scenes experiences you can do with your guests but we didn't want to eat up too much of our time so the animal ambassadors were perfect.

Probably the biggest downside we had with having the venue here you do have some limitations with setup times (the zoo does need to operate to the public for its normal business hours) but we found that the venue itself is very beautiful on its own and did not need a ton of decorations to make it look great.

Thanks Allison and Taylor for making it such an awesome event for us!

Our wedding at the Zoo was great. Everyone seemed to have a fun time and everything went well. The decorations were in place and exactly as intended prior to guest arrival and the on-site Events Coordinator, Jamey, was on top of makeing sure that we had everything we needed and were very accommodating. Our ceremony was in the East Canopy, reception in the Main Canopy and we had the Stingrays available for guests to see and touch later in the night. It was fantastic.
