What better way to celebrate that special moment in your life than a day at the zoo? No one else offers the diversity and character of wedding, reception or special event venues quite like Brookfield Zoo.
Imagine your wedding ceremony in front of the Roosevelt Fountain, or the Formal Pond, or the Savannah Overlook, with the giraffes behind you. Then comes the cocktail hour at one of the zoo's many animal venues.
From there, your reception moves to Bocadito's Restaurant, or the Discovery Center (for up to 350 guests), or the Swan Pavilion (for up to 750 guests). And complimentary zoo trams will shuttle your guests from venue to venue, through some of the most beautiful natural settings in Chicagoland.
And enjoy first-class cuisine and service. No one can host a party quite like the zoo. Celebrate with the gifts of nature, at Brookfield!
To complete the perfect day, choose professional Chicago wedding DJ entertainment by Fourth Estate Audio. The pictures below are from a few of the many weddings we've done at the zoo. And here are some Wedding Wire reviews of our performances there:
We were lucky enough to have Fourth Estate Audio recommended to us by the location of our wedding. Working with Jay was a wonderful experience. We met with him once in person before the event, and did a quick phone call right before the wedding.
We had no idea what we were doing and Jay helped us so much with the layout of the reception events (bridal party entry, first dance, parent dances, etc) and the ceremony processional. Jay provided us with a USB so that we could provide any special music/audio ourselves. But he had every song we could need already! He also took some wonderful pictures during the wedding, and we really appreciated it.
Overall I would highly recommend Fourth Estate Audio, to anyone needing a DJ." - Amanda
We loved the work that 4th Estate Audio did at our wedding! Jay, our DJ, was responsive and made the planning process easy. We were able to guide the kind of music played at our wedding by selecting a playlist online and answering surveys about the kind of music we wanted to hear.
Jay also did an awesome job directing speeches and other events. He was communicative, professional, and made coordinating speeches and dances a breeze. My husband and I both agree that the evening couldn't have been more perfect, and our DJ had a hand in making the night so special. We provided the kinds of music we liked as a guide, and Jay did a wonderful job keeping to the spirit of that list and playing music that fit our occasion perfectly.
We feel that the value of the services we received for what we paid was well worth it. I was working on my doctoral degree while planning the wedding, so the flexibility of planning our music online was invaluable. If you're looking for an excellent wedding DJ, look no further. 4th estate is highly recommended!" - Michelle
Jay was a class act leading up to the wedding, at the ceremony, and following the wedding. He made sure to play to our tastes, didn't steal the show, and got people out on the dance floor. As an added perk he took some photos that he shared with us immediately after the wedding so we had some fun pictures to look at as we wait for our professional photos. Jay is highly recommended!” - Sara
