The OK Aquarium was incredible and seriously the BEST place to get married. It is such a unique venue and it's so charming. My husband and I fell in love with it as soon as we walked in. We worked with Kara and she was nothing but wonderful to us. She was so easy to work with and great at communicating and working with us for what we wanted. Our pictures came out so beautiful with the amazing backdrops the aquarium had. We were more than happy with this beautiful place and definitely recommend to anyone who is getting married. We love the aquarium and it now has a very sentimental meaning to us.Sent on 08/01/2013
