My wedding went off with relatively little issues (which were all on my end not the zoo's). Daphne and crew were amazing, friendly, and flexible. When I would drop in unannounced to ask questions Daphne answered them with a smile. The zoo was beautiful with fabulous photo locations (my hubby and I got pictures with the wolves squee!). Not only did my photos come out great but my guests had a blast too feeding camels, riding the carousel, and wandering about while the wedding party was busy. There were a few times (two) where an email was lost but a quick text or phone call solved it quickly. If you love animals and want easy entertainment for guests of all ages the Red River Zoo is a smashing location.

Visiting the zoo was a big part of growing up for each of us. We'd spend our weekends making trips to our respective hometown zoos to watch the animals with our families. When we started dating, it was a natural part of our initial connection. In fact, one of our earliest dates was to the Red River Zoo. After our engagement, the choice to have our ceremony and reception at the zoo was a no-brainer. And, we're glad we did! Daphne and her team did a fantastic job making sure our experience was excellent in every way you'd expect. They answered all of our detailed questions, helped us make the right decisions, and were especially helpful on the day-of. There wasn't a single moment that we wondered if something was being taken care-of. To couples considering a unique location, I wouldn't think twice about the zoo. We loved the outdoor ceremony area, unique photo locations (with animals!), and outdoor dancing area. While there are a few more details to arrange in comparison to a church, hotel or event center (e.g. audio reinforcement, tent rental, lights, and traveling catering), the kind of day you'll experience with your guests will be worth it!

Everything was good, wish the process to get permission to serve alcohol was much faster. Very friendly staff. We did have so technical problem though, the TV on which we were showing our presentation was not working and we had to make the guest wait. Should have tested it beforehand. Overall it was cheap and good, the wolfs were very photogenetic.
