Stefanie and her team were awesome! We had a great night and our guests loved the venue! It was the best day of our lives! Pretty much everything but the officiant was included. They did all the food even the cake(which was better then we imagined)! Thank you to the whole Aquarium team!Sent on 07/02/2018

Nancy and her team took great care of us from day one, and they did everything possible for our dream wedding to become a reality. I was so amazed that I was able to afford to have the wedding of my dreams at one of the most amazing venues ever. The food is extremely delicious. We have been married about three months and our guests still talk about how wonderful everything was. Great, courteous, and attentive staff.Sent on 11/04/2012
