The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium offers not one, but three venues that will amaze and entertain your friends and family. With vibrant aquatic life, a lush rainforest, and cascading waterfalls, the PPG Aquarium makes an unparalleled event setting. Lose yourself amongst hundreds of animal species ranging from the tiny cuttlefish to the six-foot-long South American arapaima. At the exquisite Water’s Edge, begin the night on Pier Town, a coastal village complete with sea lions, polar bears, sea otters, and rescued northern elephant seals, and end with an underwater experience like no other. Surrounded by lavish foliage and botanical gardens, the Garden Tent is a grand venue for any elegant occasion.
NEW! We are excited to introduce “I Do” at the Zoo, a new add-on that allows you to include a ceremony with your wedding reception package. With a built in, day-of event coordinator, you will have everything you need to start your forever. We take care of everything within the Zoo, from setup to execution and even clean up, so you can enjoy every moment of your special day. An additional $500 fee. Ceremonies must be held in the same space as the reception.
