Como Park Zoo and Conservatory
The Como Park Zoo and Marjorie McNeely Conservatory are located in St Paul Minnesota, which makes it really close and centric in the cities. You can have your wedding, reception and even do just your photos!
When choosing a wedding space, I like to ask my couples what make them choose this venue, and most of my couples like the variety of spaces and the affordability. As a photographer, I am happy to work in places that offer variety too! I also like to work in places that have natural light, lots of green and nature and interesting architecture!
Spaces available: My favorite is the Sunken Garden , which is inside the Conservatory and it is where the seasonal shows are setup, so it has beautiful flowers and plants all year round! This is a space that is great for small ceremonies, up to 100 people!
Other spaces inside: North Garden, Covered Porch, Rainforest Auditorium
Outdoor spaces: Charlotte Japanese Garden, Exceedra, Enchanted Garden , Lilly Pond, Ordway Gardens
The Como Park and Zoo have many different spaces and it is as charming as it gets! The tropical vibe inside the gardens will be a great touch for your wedding plans – Specially if you are looking to have something during the colder months!
Como Zoo Wedding Ceremony
The ceremonies inside Como Zoo Conservatory can be truly beautiful and bright! The Sunken Garden location is colorful, full of flowers and intricate plants all year around.
Even in the coldest Minnesota winter, it’s warm and beautiful inside these glass walls!
One of my favorite parts of the Park is the outdoor gardens! Here are the photos outside in the Exceedra, overlooking the Frog pond . You can also have a ceremony in this gorgeous spot!
Inside the Conservatory there is plenty of light !
