Amazing Experience

The aquarium made for a gorgeous and fun venue- our guests couldn't stop raving about it! Philadelphia was extremely helpful and responsive through the entire process. Now I just want people I know to get married there so I can experience it as a guest!

Best Wedding Venue Experience

WOW! We can’t say enough about the Seattle Aquarium for a wedding or special event venue! We had our wedding there this past June 2022 and from start to finish the entire process and experience was flawless. Chelsea and Philadelphia our wedding coordinators with the Seattle Aquarium team were a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to make our dream a reality. It was so easy and fun to collaborate with them and The Seattle Aquarium venue offers it all. They have in-house catering, all the seating and linens, lighting, music plug ins and multimedia screens and endless possibilities to use the aquarium venue space. We had our ceremony right on the beautiful waterfront back pier, cocktail hour in the touch tank area and our dinner reception in the main hall with the enormous fish tank behind our wedding party main table. The dinner food was absolutely fantastic with amazing presentation. We truly can’t recommend the Seattle Aquarium enough for any special event or wedding!

Amazing Wedding Experience at the Seattle Aquarium

My husband and I were married at the Seattle Aquarium on 9/25/2021. We had a fantastic experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. From start to finish our experience with the venue was great. As a full service venue they took care of not only basic venue details but also all food and beverage except our dessert options. Due to COVID we worked with quite a few different people, Angie, Chelsea and Philadelphia but all were fantastic, responsive and up-to-date on what we needed. The planning process went great and all details were finalized multiple times and we were provided multiple options and advice for things like set-up, timeline and what not. The food tasting was great and the food was excellent both during the tasting and day of (lots of compliments on how good the food was especially the pass appetizers).
Day of things went perfectly. We had a coordinator who worked with Philadelphia to help things run smoothly. The catering staff was great and efficient and the venue worked out, and looked, fantastic. The otter feeding and happy hour were highlights.

All in all we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend this venue to other couples!
