    I am beyond pleased with how my wedding turned out at Woodland Park Zoo. They did a phenomenal job at hosting the event, planning the various details including from the initial planning meeting to the final event. The signs helped direct guests during the event. Everyone was very easy to work with and yet very detailed oriented. Our wedding happened to be on prom night and a bus load of people were trying to take photos at the Rose Garden during the ceremony, in which the Zoo did not let this issue interrupt our ceremony. My guests all enjoyed themselves and I received multiple comments my wedding was one of the best weddings they have been to and I truly have to thank Woodland Park Zoo. I highly recommend having your event at Woodland Park Zoo, including for a wedding as you will not be disappointed. Their exclusive caterer also did an amazing job. I cannot say enough positive things about Woodland Park Zoo.

    I have nothing but good things to say about Woodland Park Zoo. My sales manager, Erin Schmidlii, is absolutely wonderful. I think she is leaving very shortly, which is sad, but the entire staff is great also. They do not try and make you purchase unnecessary things. They works with you to make it exactly how you want it. I had a budget to stick to, and yes it is a little pricey, but she helped me stay within my budget and actually brought the price of food DOWN so that we actually saved more money that we thought we would! The food is incredible and it is very "green," such as grass fed beef and seafood off the seafood watch card. So yes it may be a little pricey, but it is worth it. And before weddings, they have a night where their caterer (who is also fabulous), makes all of their food and you get to sample all of it. They also set up tables with different decorations and layouts so you can see what your reception setup will look like. I HIGHLY recommend having your reception here (I had mine in the Rain Forest Food Pavillion). And even your ceremony or both would be great to have here!

    We decided to have our wedding in the Taiga exhibit. The zoo's staff were very friendly and helpful - they had people other than the catering staff there on the wedding day, helping make sure everything went smoothly. Before the wedding, they stayed in contact to make sure everything was set. A rehearsal hour the week Thursday before the wedding was included without paying extra, and they had people there then, too, to answer questions and help us finalize details. It was an excellent experience. The site was only $800, and the catering was about $3000 (which overall, for comparable food and service was very, very low cost.)
