@Heatherjo: This isn’t a HUGe help, but when my parents went to the Bronx Zoo on Halloween someone was getting married there, and they saw everything being set up. They said it looked lovely… but do you get to choose where? Because my mom said they were by the monkeys and there was s bit of a scent… maybe look into that!

 

Good luck!!

I actually book the weddings at the Bronx Zoo.  The weddings and receptions are held near animals but there is no smell.  It’s actually a great space.  I am happy to pass along any information you would like as well as testimonials from other brides.

I photographed a wedding there last year and just spoke to the bride yesterday! It was such a great place for a wedding with a beautiful outdoor ceremony space. Compared to the Central Park Zoo fees this is a great alternative.

Check out the blog post from the wedding…

I went to check the bronx out and priscilla gave my fiance and I a tour. It was amazing. It’s worth checking out and I think the price is pretty reasonable. Not cheap but not overly expensive. btw its not smelly. its amazing! JUST GO CHECK IT OUT! I am not sure if i will book it for financial reasons not sure what are the possiblities will be. Good luck.

crave:  

I emailed them a few months back about prices, and was told that it is $120 a head but WITH tax and gratuity included, it came out to $157 per person (and that is the minimum). The site fee has also been raised to $4000.
