Having our wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo made everything absolutely perfect for us. They have spaces for both ceremony and reception, both overlooking the Santa Barbara Harbor. We and our guests got to feed Giraffes and play with flamingos (really, we got to pet them and pose for pictures with them). The zoo has it's own catering service with Rincon Events and the food they provide is amazing. Every one of our guests loved everything this venue had to offer, and so did we!

The Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens is the most beautiful outdoor setting for a wedding. The ocean in the background, the sunset...it will take your breath away! They let your guests in 1 hour before they close for free, and you can opt to have some or all of the animals out after hours. The whole evening is magical!

We are so happy we chose the zoo for our wedding! It was both unique and really beautiful. We have pictures of us with giraffes, meerkats and flamingos (which, "flamingled" with our guests!). Our guests loved it too. The palm tree garden is lovely for the ceremony, and the hilltop is a great big area for a reception. Rincon Catering/Events, which is the only catering team the Zoo will work with, did an Amazing job. Angie Chaves was awesome and made sure everything looked and ran the way we wanted it to. Its a little pricey, but so is basically everything in Santa Barbara, and it was really just perfect.

Now that was a wedding! Wow. We were excited back here in Virginia when our daughter told us she had selected the Zoo for the wedding and reception, but it wasn’t until we did the rehearsal there that we fully appreciated what a terrific venue it is.

I mean, seeing the giraffes peek in at the wedding, and having flamingoes mingle during cocktails, with ocean view to the front and mountains behind, it sure beat any four-walls-and-a-floor wedding box.

And the professionalism of the zoo staff matched the setting. You guys did a great job working with my daughter in the planning, and in getting everything set up and organized. Golf carts to get up the hill were much appreciated. In every regard the Zoo personnel were terrific and helped make the event truly distinctive and memorable for all of our families and guests. Thank you!
