The Most Fun Wedding Venue Ever!

I was looking for a fun and unique wedding venue that would wow my guests, and the Gulfarium met all of those expectations and more! I had my wedding there on 04/16/22, and it was stunning. I purchased the package where the Gulfarium handled everything, such as setting up the decor. They made the ceremony and reception look so beautiful, and Ashley kept everything running smoothly. Ashley was great to work with! I highly recommend the Gulfarium. My guests and my other wedding vendors have been telling me how beautiful it was and how amazing it was to be able to interact and admire the marine life. Where else can you have pictures with penguins and dolphins on your wedding day?

Magical moments

When looking for a vendor, it never crossed my mind to choose an aquarium, but it was the BEST choice I have ever made! The staff are WONDERFUL they absolutely made our wedding complete and were SO friendly. I felt welcome and I felt heard. They have a decorating team that made our reception look GORGEOUS. Not to mention for your ceremony you can have it facing the beach, which was a BIG hit! Their aquarium wall brought sooo much attention in our wedding, our guests loved it and still talk about it today! It is worth taking a tour and seeing what they are all about! It was affordable and so worth it. Not to mention getting pictures with dolphins!! So much fun!
