Our wedding was a vision of perfection all thanks to the staff and team’s perfect execution and attention to detail, at Elmwood Part Zoo events. In the week leading up to the wedding, the sensationalized news was reporting that our day would be the coldest of the century, and it was! Our guests would never know it. EPZ came prepared: extra heat, extra tent coverage, and every detail we dreamed up, was taken care of. Even two weeks later, our guests are still remarking on the delicious appetizers and food, the decor and beauty of the venue, and the team’s incredible service. On our “big day” there wasn’t a thing missing or finger for us to lift. Thank you Gary and Nicole for taking our vision to your team and thank you EPZ Team for a perfect moment for us and our guests!

We cannot say it enough how amazing our wedding turned out last weekend!! Everything was absolutely PERFECT!! Eddie went above and beyond to make sure our day was just what we wanted and more. The venue is absolutely beautiful! We had our ceremony at Olivia's Eagles Deck and our reception in the Canopy Gardens, using their caterer. We got so many compliments on the great food and friendly staff. We truly cannot thank them enough! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a unique space to say "I Do!".
