The Wedding of Our Dreams
Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.
"Best wedding I've ever been to."
I've never heard those words so many times. Never would have guessed those words would be said at MY wedding! AH!! Literally the wedding of my dreams!! Having the ceremony in the Coral Reef room was INCREDIBLE and I still stare obsessively at the photos taken of just the room. The staff were above and beyond, especially when they found out my foot was broken. The head of security helped me out of my heels and my giant dress and into an ECV so I could get off of it when it began to hurt. The penguin team (YES YOU CAN HAVE A FREAKING PENGUIN AT YOUR WEDDING AND IT IS SOOOOO WORTH IT) were hilarious and awesome when Shelly decided to take an alternate route to the alter. They even let my flower girl, a rambunctious little 4 year old, pet Shelly (BEST WEDDING GIFT EVER) which totally made her night!! They were so nice and wonderful--major props and love. We felt pampered and taken care of in the fullest extent at all times. Kimberly and Jaclyn were our 2 contacts and so professional! Answering all my questions and understand of my horrible communication. They even helped pull a few strings for our ceremony, which technically broke the alcohol contract which was AMAZING!! The food was delicious and the catering staff as wonderful and kind as the food was incredible.
I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS VENUE ENOUGH!! Like seriously! Your guests get to enjoy the aquarium and the animals!! You will not regret it! Our Friday the 13th was magical and special and we will be visiting every Friday the 13th to celebrate!!Sent on 03/20/2020

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? :)
