September Lakeside Cafe Wedding
We seriously cannot say enough good things about our zoo wedding! We got married at the beginning of September, and it was 100% the most amazing day. Danielle and her team were wonderful and so easy to work with! They took care of all the coordinating between vendors; it was truly a stress free and magical day. The food is still one of the most talked about parts of our wedding, and their onsite lighting tech created a beautiful ambiance. Again, we truly cannot say enough wonderful things about our zoo wedding. We had both our ceremony and reception at Lakeside Cafe and the pictures are all beautiful. We had 200 guests and everyone was able to fit comfortably in Lakeside with plenty of room for our bar and dance floor. Maybe we’re biased because it was our wedding, but it was truly the most amazing setting for an amazing day. Definitely recommend the animal greeters - such a fun touch!Sent on 12/11/2018
