    Great time!

    We were a little disappointed bc of animals that wouldn’t cooperate lol but def not the zoos fault! I think a summer wedding would be a lot more fun bc with the daylight hours you could see more animals (our reception was in the tiger exhibit but by the time pictures were over it was too dark to see them). That being said, everyone had a great time and the zoo was very accommodating
    and reasonably priced:-)

    Zoo Knoxville's reply:

    Thank you so much Holly! I'm sorry the animals were not super cooperative that day, some days they are more cooperative than others. If you and Katheryn would like to come by and take some more pictures, we could definitely do that! We loved sending you both down the aisle!

    Absolutely amazing!

    So easy to work with the staff! They are kind and patient and will make your wedding go off without a hitch! They were incredible! They were there to help with anything I needed while blending in with the guests so that it felt completely relaxed and wonderful! They went out of their way to make our special day absolutely magical! I have the most amazing wedding pictures because of using the zoo. I have pictures with elephants, rhinos, and tigers. I also have incredible pictures from the bamboo forest!
    If you want a wedding that people will actually be excited about use Zoo Knoxville! The price includes set up, table linens, cake serving, and breakdown. They also have on site catering so it makes the whole planning process super simple bc all the big things you need covered are already there for you.

    Thank you so much Pam! Your group was so fun. Everyone was very excited about the Tiger pole climb! Also, your private first dance was adorable. We loved being a part of your special day, and wish you and Jason the best!
