    The events team at Potter Park were so kind and easy to work with! They went the extra step to help me customize the food and decor options to fit within my theme. Plus, having the zoo to ourselves and our guests was amazing!! If you're looking for an intimate wedding with a wild nature flare, this is for you! No regrets. At my suggestion, my sister also had her bridal shower at Potter Park, and we had a blast with the jungle themed games we made!
