We were so excited when we found out we could get married at the Sac Zoo. We had a blast every time we met up with any of their staff. They're all pretty amazing. Edie works wonders the day of the wedding acting as a coordinator. She contacted all of our vendors personally and got everything set up to be delivered/picked up/set up. I didn't have to worry about any of it on the day of the wedding. They are extremely accomodating. If they have it, they'll let you use it! You do have to use their on-site catering, but this was a blessing. Doug was awesome. Him and his head chef went above and beyond to making us some delicious food. So much food for only $25/person! Since they're a non-profit, you can't beat their prices either. Seriously not one bad thing to say about working with them.

What an AMAZING experience to have our wedding at the zoo. We really loved the venue and how close it was to downtown Sacramento. For all you animal lovers and make you feel like you are getting married in the jungle, go to Sacramento Zoo.
