  • I cannot imagine a more perfect place to have gotten married - either in NYC or elsewhere. From the day we first looked at the venue to the night of the ceremony, it consistently exceeded our expectations. The location and setting give it the perfect balance: close to the city, yet you feel far away from the chaos. Multiple guests commented on how picturesque it was even though they never would have guessed that it would be such an ideal venue. The food was delicious, and we easily fit 150 guests. Multiple guests said "I wish that I had thought of doing my wedding here!" The success of the even was entirely due to Robyn Hymowitz. She is extremely thoughtful and expressed genuine care about making sure the event was as perfect as possible. She was extremely patient despite our ever-changing ideas, and gave us great advice about every part of the ceremony/reception and a much-needed pep talk when we were nervous before the ceremony. It is impossible to express the amount of gratitude we ... Read more

  • great place to have a wedding. Not too fussy, lots of fun. It was a perfect "destination" wedding without anyone having to travel too far from home.

  • The Bronx Zoo is by far the best wedding venue in NYC. First the place is beautiful. My guests were stunned by the architecture and beauty of the zoo. But above all the staff at the zoo is amazing. From the first phone call with Priscilla to the post-wedding follow up with Crystal we were in good hands. The staff was so friendly and attentive to my guests the evening of the wedding. The food is amazing. We chose a buffet and everything was hot and the lines moved quickly. The bar service was exceptional and we even had a cigar bar outside. Thank you to the staff at the Bronx Zoo for such a wonderful day!

  • I had the pleasure of getting married at the Bronx Zoo. What an amazing experience. We feel in love with the zoo from the start. It was our dream venue. Unique, beautiful, romantic and just perfect. Thank you to all the staff at the zoo for everything you did to create the perfect day for us. Our guests continue to compliment the great food and staff. Special thanks to Ceri and Pricilla. They are amazing! I can't say enough about what a great venue this is. Wow your guests and get married at the zoo. We're so happy we did!

  • The Bronx Zoo is an AMAZING Venue for a Wedding! I’m working with quite a few Brides for” Day Of” and Flowers. The site fee is very affordable compared to a NYC Venue. Where else can “Talk to the animals!” at ones wedding? It’s the perfect venue for a Vegan, Veterinarian or any Animal Lover! It is truly a unique Guest experience. Any on can feel good about helping a Non-for Profit. Its truly a Wedding Mitzvah /Tithe It sure beats going to another banquette hall! Nancy Swiezy Events

  • A truly special venue for a special day. My wife and I had an amazing wedding and all of our guests were raving about how much fun it was too. From peacocks strolling around the ceremony to a walk through Madagascar and cocktail hour by the sea lions, it was a wonderful evening at the Zoo. The wedding team at the Zoo is incredibly dedicated and bent over backwards throughout the process to make sure that everything went smoothly. The Zoo made everything easy for us and our vendors. Priscilla in particular even called us from her family vacation to go over last minute details and did a fantastic job helping us plan things. We can't wait to visit again as wedding guests (and to take advantage of our 1-year free membership that comes with every wedding package!).

  • We had our wedding at the Bronx Zoo in the end of July 2014. It was AMAZING! Such a great spot for a wedding. The food was great, the service was great and it is such a unique and beautiful place. I know our guests will be talking about it for years to come. And it was so easy since they do everything in house! They really worked with me to create the wedding of my dreams and I could not be more grateful to them!

  • I was the wedding planner for a Memorial Day Wedding at the Bronx Zoo, their event staff is so helpful and kitchen staff was amazing as the wedding was 100% gluten free. I was in their early and their team worked hand in hand with me to make my clients day an amazing one full of joyful memories.

  • Had my wedding here in July 2013. Awesome experience. Working with Jennifer Fitzmaurice was great - she was responsive and gave good suggestions. The event space is unique clearly since it's a zoo, so while the Hall is not the most traditionally elegant, it is very modern and has a cool vibe. The catering and bartending were above expectations, and our guests had a great time.

  • The Bronx Zoo staff made our wedding dream come true. My dad used to take my sister and I there when we were little and my husband is from South Africa so it made perfect sense for us to have our reception there. The team was incredibly helpful and accomodating. Their preferred vendor list introduced us to a wonderful florist and coordinator (Nancy Swiezy) and decor/lighting expert - Morris Grey of Shades Of Grey Productions Inc. The Madacascar House was a huge hit with our guests as was the Lion House/Schiff Family Hall. The venue has a wondedful layout and beautiful bar area. The team made our picture taking process painless and they were very responsive to all of our questions. The best part is that the site fee paid goes towards the wonderful programming the Zoo has for education and the care of animals.

  • An unexpected gem in NYC! I grew up in Jersey and have found memories for visiting the Bronx Zoo during school field trips. After reading other reviews and visiting during the winter, I was excited to host my own wedding here. None of the reviews quite captured the amazing experience we had at the zoo. We threw a full-on Indian/Hindu wedding at the Bronx zoo on August 19th and for the past 6 months, Priscilla and the zoo team worked with us to make it happen and accommodate the unique challenges of a Hindu ceremony (Baraat, Mandap, Havan (fire), Indian menu). Our guests can't stop talking about what a unique experience it was to have a zoo wedding and the Zoo Center (Modeled after a European palace), Rockafeller fountain, and sea lion pool provided stunning backdrops for our ceremony, baraat and cocktail reception. We were able to take photos around the zoo and there are so many interesting nooks to capture some really unique moments. The wedding team (Priscilla, Michael and Fatima)... Read more
