Laurel and Mark's Wedding
Chicago   |   October, 2011   |   Attraction

"This is a place that we love anyway, but it was a fantastic location to point out to our guests on the day of the wedding. We wanted everyone to experience our day and to feel valued for taking part in it, so we tried to make our wedding convenient for them in terms of proximity between ceremony and reception and entertainment options between while we took pictures. The zoo and lily pond are right across the street from the museum where we had our ceremony, and just a ten minute drive from our reception location. We also used this location for our post-ceremony photos because it is so picturesque and peaceful. We originally looked into both of these locations for our wedding itself, but we found that the zoo was affordable until it came down to their bar package, which was required (no, you cannot have a dry wedding--not that we wanted one, but we wanted to keep the cost down on alcohol) and the Lily Pond allows only a total of 18 people, including the photographer, bride and groom, officiant, etc. because it is a plant and wildlife conservation area--which, with a wedding of 350 and a wedding party of fifteen (not counting our parents, grandparents, godparents, etc.) just wouldn't be an option for us. We do recommend this for photos, though!"

Josh and Lauren's Wedding

"The Regenstein Center for African Apes quadruples the amount of outdoor space formerly available to gorillas and houses 24 apes: silverbacks JoJo and Kwan, their families and two groups of chimpanzees. Four separate habitats--including three outdoor yards for both chimpanzees and gorillas--mimic the trees, rocks and vegetation of African forests. The Lester E. Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes will conduct scientific research and visitor education programs. In July 2007, the zoo unveiled new outdoor habitats at the Kovler Lion House. The expanded exhibits are home to a red panda, two puma cubs, an Afghan leopard, three long-haired Pallas' cats and a snow leopard. More than two years in development, the $1.75 million project hopes to improve the animals' quality of life and draw the public's attention to endangered wildlife. Located in a beautiful park setting near Chicago's lakefront, the Lincoln Park Zoo boasts winding paths that lead to indoor and outdoor exhibits, including the recently opened Regenstein African Journey, where wild dogs, meerkats, aardvarks, giraffes, elephants, crocodiles, ostriches and other animals live in large, lush habitats. The mixed-species environments of the Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House feature about 200 creatures from South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Birds fly free in the McCormick Bird House, while African lions, Siberian tigers, leopards and other big cats reside in the Kovler Lion House at the center of the zoo. Penguins and koala bears are favorites with kids. A children's zoo gives visitors a chance to meet infant and adult animals up-close and to learn more about wildlife at the Conservation Station. The Farm-in-the-Zoo, a working replica of a Midwestern farm, offers daily demonstrations. The Park Place Cafe features simple fare year-round; a number of seasonal cafes serve up sandwiches, coffee, ice cream and other snacks."

"Lincoln Park Zoo is a great way to spend a few hours between the ceremony and reception if the weather is nice.

The zoo parking lot is right before you hit Lake Michigan on the right. The zoo is free, but parking is not."
