Wedding Reception Recon: Lincoln Park Zoo

I took the day off work today, to go with Liz to scout out a possible wedding reception location. Today we had an appointment to meet with someone from the Lincoln Park Zoo, to talk about different spots, pricing, rules, etc.

I didn’t take too many photos, but we did a fair amount of wandering around. It was also raining a bit, which… was actually a good thing, as we could see what a “worst case scenario” looked like, if it ended up raining on our wedding day.

The images I captured were all post-meeting, where Liz and I were more or less just wandering around, checking out different places on our own.

The best part of the day was outside the Greenhouse, where I heard a boy talking to a friend as they were walking out: “Fern room? I don’t even know who Fern is!”

Liz and I have seen the seals before (they’re a favorite of hers). But today was the first time I saw their keeper come out, and throw in some toys to the water.

I think that, inside those buoys… there are fish. Today was the first time I had seen the seals push out beyond the tank’s boundaries. For a few moments there, I was positive they would jump the gate and send kids screaming in all directions.
