We had our wedding reception in the Enmax conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Such an amazing time! It is a great venue if you are planning a smaller wedding. Food was amazing and and Robin and staff were amazing!

If you want a family-friendly reception with amazing food, great photo backdrops and an incredible staff, check this place out! We had an amazing time at our reception and received nothing but compliments for the space. It is quite pricey, so I wouldn't recommend it if you need ... View more to spend less than $6000 on food + venue. You also cannot bring in your own alcohol, so I would not recommend it if an open bar is your dream. But the major perks: great for out-of-town guests to enjoy the zoo, amazing food with a great selection (we had breakfast for dinner!), wonderful staff to help you prep for everything you could ever need, and a bunch of options for space requirements (anywhere from 80-350).

There were a few extra charges that appeared as we got closer to the day, nothing huge but our total did end up being higher than we expected. The wine and bar prices are a bit high but not outrageous compared to other vendors and we were happy to know that the money goes into a nice non-profit organization like the Zoo. Definitely recommended especially if you are looking for something fun and a little bit different.

Great location for our wedding, we had our ceremony out in the Arbour Garden and the reception in the Conservatory, it was a beautiful location and the staff were all super helpful and wonderful to work with. Added bonus, guests wandered around the zoo while we took our pictures!
