  • We chose to have our wedding reception at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo because it holds a special place in our hearts. Not only was it where we had one of our first dates, but we also just love animals. We wanted to make sure that we were putting our money into a good cause and what better way to celebrate our marriage then to help all of the animals at the zoo!
