The college I went to did a formal dinner/dance at the local zoo.  It was a beautiful location and the zoo overlooks the ocean… I’d say, if there was the space to do a reception – I think it would be super unique!  GO FOR IT!

Actually, I was at a wedding reception at the St. Louis zoo about 2 years ago! They had it at the Lakeside cafe. I loved it and thought it was very unique!

I went to a reception at a zoo in college, it was in MN, and it was really beautiful.  There was a dolphin pool that shed good lighting.

We considered the Houston Zoo, but didn’t really like the set-ups available. We wanted something big enough for a DJ, dance floor, but intimate enough for a sit down dinner and toasts. Scout out where exactly they will let you set-up and try to imagine your wedding there

I can recall attending one of the best weddings I’ve been to at San Diego’s Wild Animal Park. It was a gorgeous location and very very unique. I haven’t attended a wedding since that has been up to par in terms of location, food, and ambiance.

I went to a reception at the Phoenix Zoo in May. It was lovely … and did not smell like poo, like another poster said!
