From lush tropical settings to the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, the Phoenix Zoo offers distinct indoor and outdoor venues that welcome large formal ceremonies and receptions, smaller, more intimate affairs and everything in between. Become united in the shadows of the Savanna, under twinkling lights at Ruby’s House or at our stunning lakeside. As newlyweds, celebrate in the C.W. & Modene Neely Education and Event Center, Stone House Pavilion or perhaps Desert Grove. With more than 15 onsite venues, your dream wedding will become reality.
