Amazing night at the Zoo!
Our wedding at ZooTampa was amazing and everything we could have asked for! Karlin was the best and communicated with me all throughout our engagement. She was super helpful and made sure all of our requests were met. I highly recommend the Zoo as such a great venue to have a wedding. All of our guests were super excited to be at the Zoo and loved being able to see the Giraffes during our ceremony and then being able to feed them. We had the best time and I would go back a thousand times to relive that night.Sent on 02/28/2020

It was easy to set up! Every one at the zoo was prompt, professional, and available for every question I had. The experience was amazing and my fiancé loved it.Sent on 09/24/2020

My now husband and I decided to reach out to the Tampa Zoo to see if we could take some wedding photos there. They were extremely welcoming and more than glad to have us and our small wedding group (4 people), and the photographers there.
They gave me many options for what I wanted to do when I emailed them. They were very quick in emailing and calling me to plan my special day. I paid for a private encounter with the giraffes, where one of the sales associates was there waiting for me. They lead us up the ramp where I was able to have unique wedding photos with giraffes behind us. They were fine with us bringing our photographers in, taking photos around the zoo, and using them for the giraffe encounter (instead of their own).
About 30 minutes later Courtney went looking for us and found us wondering around the zoo taking photos. She wanted to make sure everything was going well and that we were enjoying our day. I appreciate that they took the time out of their day to be waiting for us and check in with us personally.
I would highly recommend the Tampa Zoo for future events.Sent on 09/10/2020
After playing for a wedding at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, I realized what a beautiful venue it is, and a truly unique setting. Staff are extremely friendly and willing to help in any way that they can to provide excellent service to everyone involved in the event. Great job!
