Wedding at Lowry Park Zoo

Wedding of Colleen & David Specht in the Africa section of Lowry Park Zoo surrounded by their family, friends, and 3 giraffes.

Colleen & David met at work. David was Colleens boss (now shes his boss). She hated David at first! It took them 6 months to gel and form a good working relationship. Colleen went through a divorce and quit her job, but continue to connect with David for the reason of finding a work replacement for her. The rest was history. Last year David whisked Collen to England for a vacation and proposed over dinner at a restaurant located at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. Colleen made David repeat the question 3 times before she said yes.

Lowry Park Zoo provides such a unique tropical atmosphere for a wedding. They have several outdoor areas for the ceremony. This ceremony was just outside the Reilly’s Reserve Ballroom where the reception was which can seat up to 200 people. For the cocktail hour the staff will bring some of the smaller exotic animals for a little “meet and greet” with the guests. For more information on having a wedding at Lowry Park Zoo see
