    Amazing Venue, Fabulous Staff, Magical Wedding Location!!!

    The Georgia Aquarium was simply AMAZING, the most incredible wedding reception space of all time, far surpassing all of our dreams. From our very first introductory meeting it was clear that the Georgia Aquarium was the perfect place for our reception. Brittney Manner's knowledge, level of care, and degree of thorough attention to detail continued to impress us at each of our planning sessions. The space is incredible: the beluga tank, whale the shark viewing window, the tour for photos around the rest of the Aquarium... wonderful pictures several of our guests have asked if they are photoshopped they are so incredible! All of our guests loved the venue as well, highly complimenting the tasty food, and loving the amazing sealife surrounding them!
    From the time we first arrived at the aquarium the night of the reception, we were greeted by a team of highly competent staff, exceptionally well organized and ready to make it the best night of our lives. Throughout the evening, whenever any concern (however small) arose Brittney and her team were right there to help make sure everything went smoothly. Brittney and her wonderfully dedicated team made our reception the best night of our lives and we are forever grateful! Highly recommend this venue!!!

    Howard & Santrella Irving's Wedding Day @ Georgia Aquarium

    I do not think we could have picked another location that could compare to the GA Aquarium. The entire Ocean's Ballroom area was breath taking. Our guest were wowed by the Beluga Whales and enjoyed the entire experience. Joseph Gatlin was a joy to work with thru the entire process. The only thing I would change is the length of time we were there - wish the day never ended. Thank you Joseph and the GA Aquarium team for making our day absolutely perfect.

    Joseph and his team are amazing. The aquarium staff was very accommodating and were able to include everything that we wanted to make our wedding perfect, down to putting a diver in the whale shark tank holding a "congratulations" sign. We received so many compliments from our guests stating that this was the best wedding they had ever been to by far. Having the whale shark/beluga tanks as a background at our wedding was a dream come true, and made for the absolute most beautiful pictures!! The ballrooms themselves were beautiful as well. There is really nice up-lighting in each room. The food was amazing as well. I highly highly recommend having your wedding here!!
