Botanical gardens are the natural and inspiring backdrop for the moment you say “I do,” and you leave your mark by helping our animals too. Plus, your guests will be amazed as they are treated to the creative and renowned cuisine of our professional chefs. We can also suggest and work with design teams outside the zoo to make sure your special day is uniquely you.
