Zoo Wedding was Perfect - An Eventective User from Bakersfield, California

My sister loves the Zoo so it was the perfect choice for her wedding. What surprised us was the low price, the beauty of the setting, and the above and beyond excellence of the zoo staff and the service providers they recommended to us. We held the wedding on the Rain Forest Lawn. It was just right for our group of 60. Although we were in the zoo, we decorated with the normal elegant wedding style in mind. The end result was breath-taking and the guests were quite impressed. I'm sorry I don't have pictures to share; they aren't back from the photographer yet. But I would recommend this setting for a wedding to anyone.
