It's a unique venue with gorgeous backdrops and the chance to have adorable animals at your cocktail hour to interact with and bring joy to your guests. Jane and Jackie are well organized, professional and friendly, and they will see your event through to ensure the perfect evening!
Wild and wacky, soft and romantic, no matter the occasion or style of the celebration The Zoo is sure to delight! And Jane, she is the icing on the cake!
This venue is so unique! Where can you have animal ambassadors visit you and your guests during cocktails? The Lakeside Pavilion is a great location for a ceremony and the Mansion House is such a cool place for a reception! Jane and her staff take great pride in their venue and in making sure each celebration is perfect. We highly recommend!
