You and your guests will feel you have traveled to the ends of the earth, surrounded by 45 acres, home to over 100 exotic cats.  But you haven’t.  You’ve just had the wedding ceremony of your dreams at Big Cat Rescue.

“One of the most popular locations for Tampa weddings.”

Weddings are nothing short of amazing at Big Cat Rescue,

a sanctuary home to over 100 rescued exotic wild cats.

Big Cat Rescue provides the ideal backdrop for weddings, but the experience doesn’t stop there.  The wedding couple and guests can follow the ceremony with a private up-close tour of our sanctuary; visiting the special Cat-a-tat homes to our rescued exotic cats.  Around every corner awaits a unique experience.  Follow your tour with an indoor reception at our ‘Lions Lair Party Pavilion’.  No part of your special day will be ordinary at Big Cat Rescue.

“We didn’t want a big, fancy or traditional wedding ceremony but we did want it to be memorable for ourselves, our family and our friends.  Our *wedding consultant* Barbara was always available to answer any questions that I had along the path.  We had friends from as far away as Finland come for our wedding.  Everyone had a great time and we so enjoyed the walking tour afterward. What a wonderful experience!  From the Guinea Hens to the Tigers, they all assisted in making our day so special.  THANK YOU Carole, Barbara and all the volunteers of BigCats for providing this service for us.  We so appreciate your sharing BigCat Rescue and your wonderful animals with us so that our special day became not only special but unforgettable.
