I am looking into the Woodland Park Zoo for a venue/reception for my wedding. We have been to the zoo several times and really enjoy it everytime we go there. We have a meeting with them and their caterer later this week.
I was wondering if anyone had ever been to a wedding there or had any reviews of their weddings/catering. I’ve searched a bit but haven’t really been able to find anything.
Let me know what you think. Thanks!

You’re in luck! I used to work at the Zoo in event planning and have done hundreds of weddings there. The catering is great, don’t need to be fooled by their food court local. What venue/s are you looking to rent and I can tell you the pros and cons of each!
I loved working there, it’s a great organization and Lancer is a great caterer. Def. a hidden gem in Seattle’s wedding world. People are always surprised when I tell them what I did there.

Love the Woodland Park Zoo. I have never been to a wedding there, but it was featured at the Seattle Wedding Expo and looked wonderful.

A good friend of mine had her ceremony at Kubota Gardens and her reception at the Rainforest Pavillion at the zoo. It was a nice space! Roomy, nice low-lights, big central dance floor. The catering was pretty decent. I know that they were on a tight budget and this was affordable for them.
Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the other wedding sites at the zoo, but I bet you can set up a meeting with a tour to see what they all look like!

We are going to have 75-100 people and would like there to have at least some sort of shelter, especially for the reception, in case it rains. Do you know how much the catering was per person? We are going to meet Thursday with them so I bet they answer a lot of our questions, but I bet we come back with more afterwards. Thanks.

I haven’t been to a wedding there but my office had a Christmas party there 2 years ago, the catering was really delicious and the staff all seemed really great.

I was on the planning committee for my HS Reunion and we held it at the zoo. They were really great to work with, so I would highly recommend them. Also, the food is great, and sustainable! Plus, their proceeds all go back to the zoo.
