We had our wedding ceremony and reception in the Coral Reef room over a month ago and we still receive compliments on the food (they work with Aramark) and that it was the most beautiful wedding our guests have ever been to- even compared to their own!Sent on 06/30/2019
Jaclyn was very accommodating, especially when we had to move our wedding date up by 6 months, due to a family emergency. It was definitely not ideal to plan a wedding in such a short amount of time, but she worked through the whole process with my planner, CJ, and myself. It was not a cheap wedding but if you have a limited budget, they will work with you so that you don't go over.
I am so happy that we chose this venue and I cannot imagine having a more intimate and beautiful wedding than this.

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!!!
