My wedding was truly magical. The aquarium was the perfect venue. The staff was all fantastic and helped me so much with planning everything and making sure it was all perfect. All my guests were so impressed with how beautiful everything was. You will not be disappointed if you get married at the aquarium. Most of my guests told me that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and even surpassed their own. I wish I could give 10 stars because it was the PERFECT place.

Excellent venue with equally excellent scenery. Offering customized service to each of their couples. A pleasure to work with such committed professionals.

This is the place that took "taking a photo with a penguin" of our bucket list! You want a location for your wedding that you will NEVER forget? This is it! Never have we been so awestruck at a wedding reception... the staff is always great and the scenery is ALWAYS changing! Did I mention there's penguins? :)

Beautiful and fun venue for your wedding or special event. The weddings we have done have awesome wedding photos!!!! Love it for a super great spot to say I DO!!!

A spectacular place for any function. You will remember this location for the rest of your life.
