Everyone wants a fun party and great location for their wedding venue, but some want more than just a fun space and party. They want a zoo

Wedding Wire named The Beardsley Zoo2018 Connecticut Wedding Venue,

Every year, Wedding Wire has awards for the best wedding-related things. The couples voted on different categories like makeup artists, officiants, and venues.

According to CT Post, the venue was named one of the winners as a result of couples placing their votes based on categories like quality, consistency, and other reviews.

Beardsley Zoo’s Rentals and Events Manager said the zoo hosts “nearly two dozen weddings” per year.  The couples love the animals, carousel, and scenery. And with all the new and adorable animals, who wouldn’t want to say, “I do”, there?

When couples choose The Beardsley Zoo, they choose from 4 different event spaces. The zoo offers the Carousel building, the Picnic Grove, Hanson Exploration Station, and the Victorian Greenhouse. There really is something for every type of bride!

The Beardsley Zoo is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. And the zoo participates in its Species Survival Plan Programs. Because of this, all the proceeds from events directly support their conservation efforts.

So, while it is known that most brides want a “Pinteresty wedding”, who knew brides would also want a wedding worthy of The Lion King!
