One lucky couple was crowned king or queen of the jungle during the event after meeting the animals in their habitats.

The event took place on April 16 and ran from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The party continued in the event pavilion as guests danced to throwback tunes and struck a prom pose at the photo station.
