"Our wedding at the Zoo was PERFECT! Such a unique and beautiful environment and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Our guests are still talking about it!"
"I think the day was a huge success - great weather, great support from you and your team getting everything set up, great accommodations for the wedding party and great fun for all our guests. While everything came together very nicely, I was particularly impressed by the food! I don't believe that I have ever had a buffet-style meal that was even close to what we served. Everything was appropriately hot (or cold), the quantity was just right and the flavors - wow!"
"The wedding and reception were absolute stress-free occasions. There was not a single negative moment, from our arrival up until the last dance. It was the most amazing day, and we are so very thankful and appreciate for that."
“The wedding was absolutely perfect. Everything went exactly to plan and we are still waiting to hear of a single hitch or glitch that happened and now we realize there can't have been one. The weather might have been our one 'dramatic moment' and we were just so fortunate with that too… We have heard from so many people how good they thought the meal was. A great variety and plenty of it well displayed. All your staff worked so hard and were so pleasant. My mind is a blank about so much of it. I just know that thanks to you all, we were able to be true guests at our own party and able to enjoy it all without any of the responsibilities.”
