Llamas at Weddings

Seven beautiful llamas live at Castle Waterford. Together, they represent all the countries of the world where llamas hail from. For ten years, they have been delighting guests who travel from all over the U.S. to participate in trail walks and educational sessions under the company name ShangriLlama. You can include these mesmerizing llamas in your wedding festivities to create joyful memories.
