From consultation to executing the details on their big day – we're in LOVE with bringing our couples' wedding dreams to life!

"My wedding day has not even come yet and the Zoo event coordinator is already surpassing all of my expectations in customer service and compromise!! I've changed my mind a few times about different things and she is immediately willing to solve the issue and figure something out. The coordinator took my fiancé and I on a tour throughout the event spaces and explained to us what all could be done in the space. That was the most helpful thing we could have asked for! They are very thorough and provided us with a lot of information to help with our decisions. We are extremely excited to say I DO at the Zoo!!"

Put planning your event in our hands...the Zoo Atlanta Special Events Team has got you!

"I knew we were in good hands with Hannah Baber, the Proof of the Pudding team and Savanna Hall as a venue. Since the time we walked in, to our various changes due to Covid, they have been professional and helpful with all details. Their food has been great and the team has been spot on. They are so easy to deal with and it has truly been a pleasure." #TestimonialTuesday #OnlyZooATL

We love making wedding dreams come true...!
"Zoo Atlanta and Proof of the Pudding catering provided our family with a stimulating and memorable wedding venue with a delicious meal. As we enjoyed the company of an elephant, giraffes, zebra, and ostriches my granddaughter was married to a wonderful guy. We then enjoyed a wonderful custom meal and the company of family and friends. Hannah Baber and staff catered to our every wish. The day was thoroughly enjoyed!" #TestimonialTuesday #OnlyZooATL

Teamwork is at the heart of our event successes!

We started 2021 strong by also adding MARLENA JOHNSON, Catering Sales Manager to the Zoo Atlanta Special Events Team. With a strong background in administration and planning, Marlena brings a passion to her work that continually inspires.

Born in Warsaw, Poland, Marlena graduated from the Warsaw School of Information Technology, She began her career in the United States at Planet Hollywood, then later worked for a major sports arena and Proof of the Pudding as an Event Coordinator and Bartender.

Marlena has a passion for new challenges which led her to a different career path as a Project Manager in restoration and construction businesses. But after a few years, she decided to return to Proof of the Pudding full-time as a Staffing Coordinator for POP's Offsite Catering Division.

Always looking for exciting opportunities, Marlena accepted a transfer to the Zoo Atlanta Special Events Team – taking on an administrative and birthday celebrations planner role. Marlena is a mother of two young children and gets great joy in planning family events! #POPstar #OnlyZooATL

Teamwork makes the events dream work!

We're thrilled to have added CAREY DREHER, Catering Sales Manager, to our Zoo Atlanta team this year. Carey has been in the hospitality industry for 25 years and when asked she shared, " I can’t imagine doing anything else!"

While in college studying journalism she took a part-time job as a server for a catering company. She then worked in different areas of the company, learning about what it takes to create the perfect event. What started out as a temporary job, has ended up becoming Carey's passion – and has turned into a career that has led her to work with amazing clients at some of Atlanta’s top venues.

When not planning events, Carey loves to travel, go hiking, and spend time with her family – which includes three very busy teenage boys! #POPstar #OnlyZooATL

Spring 2021 has brought with it some exciting NEW HIRES at Proof of the Pudding! Over the next few weeks we'll be shining the spotlight on these talented new #POPStars. Enjoy learning more about them on this #FunFactFriday interview below! ******************************************** Meet KATY BARAHONA, Catering Sales Manager at Zoo Atlanta Special Events / Zoo Atlanta: • Food 🍕 is my love language! • I have lightening ⚡️ fast reflexes. • Purple 💜 is my favorite color, Prince is my favorite performance artist. • I am going to win the next HGTV dream home 🏡. • I'm a totally 80's girl 🎀! • I was captain of my HS cheerleading squad, and captain of my college dance 💃 team. • I love nature and gardening 🌷, but sadly do not have a green thumb. • I could survive on (local) honey 🐝 alone. Seriously, I buy it by the gallon! • My superpower is being 100% healthy 💪🏼, 100% of the time. • I am 50% Swedish 🇸🇪 (most think Irish, due to my red hair, but the only Irish I have in me is stew and soda bread). • I've been married 👰 for 20 years, and was married on Martha's Vineyard, my happy place. • We have a Goldendoodle named Dogbert 🐶. • I'm an avid recycler ♻️ and composter. • My favorite mini series is Little House in the Prairie. And Gilmore Girls. And New Girl! ... but I do more reading 📚 than watching.
We proudly served as Production Chair for this year’s Allie Awards 🏆 It was a honor to play such an intricate role for this celebration. Congratulations to all the amazing industry professionals who were honored! Thank you Zoo Atlanta Special Events for hosting! #goodfootproductions #productionlife #eventproduction #eventmanagement #productionchair #stagemanagement #savannahall #zooatlanta #allieawards
