    We were gifted with Joe, Nicole, and Chef Tyler for our wedding. As most weddings go, we were stressed. As soon as we sat down for our tasting Joe, Nicole, and Chef Tyler alleviated all of our stress. The dishes and the layout for our wedding had us filled with joy and excitement. Every single dish chef Tyler presented us were absolutely delicious. Just the Maryland crab cakes, Peruvian steak, and paella could have sufficed, but chef Tyler went the extra mile and was able to incorporate dishes from our culture. Dishes that our older family members could not only appreciate, but enjoy because of how delicious they really were. He was able to create pancit, lumpia Shanghai, and lechon kawali (that's pork belly) that was so good I ended up eating all of it. We were so confident and impressed with Chef Tyler's creations that we gave him full creative freedom on the dessert menu. Food is a big part of our lives and one of the significant factors that started our relationship in its early beginnings. Tasting how good the food was, we knew our guests were going to be blown away. Not only was the food amazing, but the setup and layout of our wedding was beautiful. Nicole was able to envision something truly incredible. The use of space, colors, and aesthetic that Nicole was able to conjure up was exactly the look we were hoping for. My favorite part was the bar next to the dolphin tank. It was an aquarium bar which only exists here. A place you can watch sealife while enjoying a drink rather than awkwardly at your phone like at so many weddings I've been to before. My now wife and I were able to see the beautiful layout, but Nicole made sure we had drinks in our hands the whole night which was incredible. She also got a plate of lechon for my now father in law who didn't have to wait in line for the mouth watering pork. She really took care of us that night. It was absolute beautiful and I can't thank Joe, Nicole, and Chef Tyler enough for all their work and help.

    The staff at the National Aquarium are so professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with in so many ways. Corey Frier the event coordinator was amazing. We had the time of our lives. A special shout out to the awesome security team.

    We had an incredible time at our wedding here! The staff were very accommodating the night of and kept everything flowing smoothly. We rented both interior sections of the aquarium so our guests were free to roam most exhibits during the cocktail hour. Our ceremony had a late start time, 7:30pm, but we were able to stay at the reception until midnight. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a "wow" factor. Our guests really enjoyed the atmosphere!
