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!

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.
