  • Highly recommend! The staff was incredible and the on-site catering was amazing. Everyone commented that it was the most unique wedding they have been to and that it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The chef was very accommodating to our gluten and dairy free and vegan guests. Suzi worked with me for months and answered my questions quickly and did everything so that we had the best wedding I could ever imagine. She even surprised us by letting us feed the giraffes! Truly the best day of my life (:

    Thank you Rebecca! Your wedding was so beautiful- the light pink and green were gorgeous choices for the Grasslands Patio and even the Giraffe loved watching your first dance! Thank you guys for letting us celebrate with you!

  • Unfortunately I ended up being a corona bride, and had to find a plan B at the last minute. I contacted the Knoxville Zoo and they became my saving grace! Not only did they go above and beyond the call of duty, they ensured my day would still be absolutely magical by incorporating animal interactions. I had a videographer capture every moment and the video will be showed at our marriage celebration at a later date. This experience made my entire wedding dreams even more grand than I ever had anticipated for myself. In the end, I am glad that my original wedding plan was tampered on because I received soooooooo much more from this experience! Not only did I get to have animal interactions, I also received artwork keepsakes created by the animals that will also be displayed at the marriage celebration. They even mailed me a wedding gift created by one of the animals! They were all so sweet, and I can never thank them or repay them enough for everything they did for me! Thank you so much ...

  • We had an amazing experience planning and celebrating our wedding at Zoo Knoxville. The staff, particularly Suzi and Miranda, made planning very easy and stress-free. They took care of arranging everything, from decor, to food, to entertainment. The zoo now has its own on-site catering, which was delicious and very reasonable in cost. The chefs are professional and accommodating; they will customize any menu item and are very sensitive to food allergy needs. There are also options to have animals involved; we had a macaw in our ceremony and Einstein the African Grey parrot performed at our reception-our guests absolutely loved it! The day of the wedding was very stress-free; there were large spaces for us to get ready on site and the zoo set up and helped take down our ceremony and reception decor. Finally, we were allowed to go anywhere in the zoo for our wedding pictures! We drove around on golf carts to the places where we wanted photos. It was also a fun opportunity to interact wit...

    Thank you so much Stephanie! We loved being a part of your and Jimmie's special day. Tango flying the rings down the aisle was such a memorable part of the wedding, and a great surprise for your guests! Best wishes!! -Miranda & Suzi

  • We were a little disappointed bc of animals that wouldn’t cooperate lol but def not the zoos fault! I think a summer wedding would be a lot more fun bc with the daylight hours you could see more animals (our reception was in the tiger exhibit but by the time pictures were over it was too dark to see them). That being said, everyone had a great time and the zoo was very accommodating and reasonably priced:-)

    Thank you so much Holly! I'm sorry the animals were not super cooperative that day, some days they are more cooperative than others. If you and Katheryn would like to come by and take some more pictures, we could definitely do that! We loved sending you both down the aisle! -Miranda & Suzi

  • So easy to work with the staff! They are kind and patient and will make your wedding go off without a hitch! They were incredible! They were there to help with anything I needed while blending in with the guests so that it felt completely relaxed and wonderful! They went out of their way to make our special day absolutely magical! I have the most amazing wedding pictures because of using the zoo. I have pictures with elephants, rhinos, and tigers. I also have incredible pictures from the bamboo forest! If you want a wedding that people will actually be excited about use Zoo Knoxville! The price includes set up, table linens, cake serving, and breakdown. They also have on site catering so it makes the whole planning process super simple bc all the big things you need covered are already there for you.

    Thank you so much Pam! Your group was so fun. Everyone was very excited about the Tiger pole climb! Also, your private first dance was adorable. We loved being a part of your special day, and wish you and Jason the best! -Miranda & Suzi

  • This was the most unique experience! The staff was AMAZING and set everything up how we dreamed. Our D.O.C, Suzi was perfect! She made this day happen. All the staff costs are wrapped into the total cost so we had over 15 people working on our wedding! The in house catering food was PERFECT! Everyone could not stop taking about it! Our cocktail hour was with the Tigers and we even had 4 extra animals being walked around! Our guests had a blast. I highly recommend the Knoxville Zoo for an amazing wedding, even more amazing photos and a smooth wedding day!

  • Many guests will talk about seeing the animals when asked about our wedding-amazing, of course! But for my husband and I, we were equally impressed by elements the guests may not have seen or considered. The staff's attention to detail, organization and accessibility regarding our needs/preferences consistently exceeded our expectations. Ashley and Suzi guided us through the whole process efficiently. They were able to utilize their experience as event coordinators to make our day go smoothly without the event feeling the least bit impersonal or "cookie cutter". It has been one of the best customer service experiences I have had. Thank you, Zoo Knoxville staff!

  • I absolutely loved working with Zoo Knoxville. They made my wedding day stress free and fantastic. Ashley and Suzie were both responsive, helpful, and a little bit psychic! When we dropped off things for the reception, they placed everything exactly the way I had hoped. They checked in with us throughout the entire process, and just made the whole day better. You could not pick a better venue or a better team than Zoo Knoxville.

    Thanks so much Elizabeth! It was so great working with you all and hope to see you at future Zoo events!
