  • My fiancé and I dreamed about getting married at the Maryland Zoo. Our initial tour of the Mansion House was wonderful, as Jane (the wedding manager for the property) helped us envision our big day. The wedding package was also a steal, financially: $5,000 for the ceremony and reception, tables and chairs, plus a day-of coordinator. We were sold! The venue is beautiful, and it was everything we wanted. We booked right at the start of the pandemic, thinking things would be better by our wedding date. But as time progressed, we started to think about how to make our wedding day safe for everyone during a pandemic. We discussed several measures that would be available, such as having the ceremony at the pavilion (which Jane kindly held for us that day as well), opening the Windows on the mansion porch to increase air circulation, seating people based on risk category, requiring masks, sanitizer at EVERY table, etc. The Zoo imposed several restrictions on us beyond what is require...

  • Just do it! The penguin is a hit. Jane and her crew are amazing and very on top of things. Highly recommend her.

  • Jane at the Maryland Zoo was one of the only reasons our wedding even managed to happen. Even after multiple delays, changes, and other circumstances from lockdowns to guest limits due to COVID she never stopped pushing for our wedding to finally happen. And when it did, it was everything we could have asked for. The location itself (we chose the Mansion House) was gorgeous with lots of color on a fall afternoon, we were able to take pictures in the Zoo proper, and the penguin ambassador was not only a delight but a hit with our guests. Overall, could not recommend enough, absolutely perfect.

  • We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding! Everything was absolutely beautiful and the zoo staff was incredible! Plus there was a penguin at our wedding, which made such a magical experience for our guests!! Everything was absolutely perfect and I am so incredibly glad that we picked the zoo for our big day!

  • Originally we came across the zoo when looking at places to elope in Maryland. After meeting with Jane and seeing the venue, we decided to move forward with a full (100 guest) wedding. I was absolutely enamored with the idea of having the animal ambassadors at the wedding - this is just the coolest idea ever. We are pretty low key (I hope) and Jackie helped us work out all the details - we literally didn't have to worry about anything. From the parking lot attendants to everyone we encountered during our blustery wedding day going around the zoo, everyone was so amazing and kind. The venue looked beautiful and YES the visit from Tetra the penguin and Athena the owl was amazing - people were gushing about them all night. Everything went just beautifully - thank you so much for a perfect wedding!

  • Having our wedding at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore was one of our best decisions. The setting is stunning both inside and out. Our coordinator quickly put us at ease and made the day go smoothly. Being able to have animal ambassadors was a fantastic addition and helped make the experience unique and memorable. Who wouldn't want to meet a penguin and one of our own raven mascots!! It has been five months since our wedding and we are still being told by family and friends how great a time was had, how beautiful it is there, and how it's the best wedding they've been to.

  • We both loved how our wedding came together at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore! Great venue and help throughout the process! We extended the time at the zoo and also paid for 2 penguin ambassadors which are included in the price given.

  • The Mansion House at the Maryland Zoo is a perfect wedding venue. The building itself is beautiful, and lends a wonderful backdrop to wedding photos. We had both our ceremony and reception in the Mansion House, and it flowed very well. Jackie was our on-site coordinator, and I am so grateful to her for keeping everything running from our planning through rehearsal and reception (especially because we were planning our wedding from another state!). The zoo security guard on staff for the event was a huge help with parking and he was so helpful and friendly to guests - I’ve had so many compliments from guests specifically about him! :) We also had a penguin and a screech owl for our cocktail hour - that was a HUGE hit and so memorable. My favorite photo of my husband & me is on the carousel - a fun bonus to an already great venue. I really can’t say enough good things about the Maryland Zoo - thank you to Jackie & the staff.

  • Beautiful venue and great staff support from Jackie! We did our ceremony at the Lakeside Pavilion and our reception in the Mansion House and opted for a Penguin and Skunk as Animal Ambassadors. Jackie was also really helpful in taking us around for photos in the zoo itself prior to the wedding and we were really lucky to capture some magical photos in front of an elephant! Although we did have to contend with a cycle event on the park grounds on our wedding day, everything within the Zoo's control was really perfect and Jackie went above and beyond in terms of responsiveness and support. All of our guests said it was one of the most fun and unique weddings they'd ever been to!

  • They say your wedding day is the most amazing and stressful day of your life, right? Between finding the right venue, food, guest satisfaction, photographer, decorations...it's all a handful. Planning a small wedding? No problem. Planning bigger? No problem either. The Maryland Zoo staff guide you step by step, work with your budget, and answer all your questions. What more can you ask for?

  • All of the events staff at the Zoo was incredibly responsive when we inquired about availability, and also when working with us and our other vendors to accommodate our requests for our wedding. The venue is beautiful and we received many compliments from our guests. Our day-of coordinator Jackie was wonderful and took us around the property for photos and made the animal ambassador a smooth and fun part of our day! We really loved having our wedding at the Zoo!

  • When my daughter started looking for wedding venues in Baltimore I was taken back by prices and what was offered. We decided to check out the Baltimore Zoo and we loved it. We were able to hold our ceremony outside at the Lakeside Pavilion with the reception in the Mansion. Everything was gorgeous. We spoke with Jane to book the venue and she was very helpful, answering all our questions. Brittney worked with us as our coordinator that day and made sure that we had every detail that we wanted to make this a special occasion. They even allow for night time photos in the zoo which was fabulous. Thank you Brittney for helping us to give our daughter that special day!

  • We had our wedding at the Maryland Zoo in September 2019, and couldn’t be happier with our choice! We had our ceremony at the Lakeside Pavillion, and the reception in the Mansion House. The zoo grounds are absolutely beautiful, and we got gorgeous photos! The zoo has it all and more--the option for an outdoor ceremony, photos around the zoo, and the beautiful historic mansion house for the reception. Our guests were truly impressed and had the best time! The highlight of the evening was a visit from the animal ambassadors during cocktail hour. Dawn the Penguin and Louie the Macaw were a huge hit with us and our guests! Our day could not have been possible without the phenomenal team of Jane and Brittney. Jane was so helpful when touring and booking. She gave us so much useful information and recommendations for other vendors to book with to make the planning process easy. Brittney was our coordinator, and I cannot say enough good things about her! She answered my many emails promp... Read more

  • The Maryland Zoo was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception. Jane and Jackie were amazing to work with from start to finish. After touring the space with Jane, we knew we didn't need to keep looking any longer. Jane was so helpful answering all of our questions and gave us a huge list of recommended vendors for all aspects of the wedding and went through it with us providing more detail for each. That list and all her experience and knowledge made the vendor search so easy. All of our vendors were thrilled to be working at the zoo and had a great history and working relaitionship with the zoo. Jackie was our day of coordinator and was instrumental in making the day run more smoothly than we could ever have imagined it would. She was there to answer any questions, direct traffic, coordinate with vendors, and drive the golf cart around. In terms of the physical venue itself, the zoo made for an amazing day. We had our ceremony at the Lakeside Pavillion which was a beaut... Read more
