From the first time we saw the boardwalk venue, we fell in love with it. That scenery is so gorgeous! The staff we spoke to (Zach, Lindsey and Claudia) was very helpful every step of the way, always answering our questions and explaining things. The food was great. Also, animals! It was such a cool thing to have some special guests stop by. We also took some time before the ceremony to step into the zoo and take some photos. We absolutely loved it there and I would definitely recommend it!
We had the Columbus Zoo come to our Wedding! They brought a lizard, an armadillo, a sloth, a tortoise, and a fox!!! The fox was my favorite, because we got to hold her and take pictures with her! The handlers were extremely knowledgeable and professional with us, the guests, and the animals as well. The only negative thing I could say would be that we couldn't hold the sloth... but that's just me being selfish. We just love animals so much, and just want to love on them-- so in all seriousness, we completely understand why we couldn't hold her. The guests at our Wedding absolutely LOVED asking questions and seeing the animals in person! They were all such a hit!!! Such a wonderful experience! Would recommend 5/5!
