Wedding Venues with a Wild Side

Would you like to have a giraffe crash your wedding? It’s possible, and for animal lovers it would make a jaw-dropping story to tell for years to come. If you want to get wild at your wedding, consider these animal-friendly wedding locations in Southern California:

San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal ParkSan Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park: Exchange your vows while herds of giraffes, rhinos, gazelles, and oryx roam nearby, or maybe say “I do” at a lagoon surrounded by rare birds and plants. The staff at the San Diego Zoo can design your own customized wedding “habitat,” complete with animal print linens and whimsical leopard-dotted and zebra-striped cakes.

The Condor’s Nest Ranch: With pot-bellied pigs, goats and horses, The Condor’s Nest Ranch outside of San Diego won my heart with their gorgeous skyline views and serene poolside reception area. Their on-site wedding coordinator encourages animal encounters for visitors—which would be a great way to keep children entertained at a wedding!The Condor's Nest Ranch
