  • I had the good fortune of having my wedding at the Seattle Aquarium. It's one of a kind that truly offered a unique experience. We had our ceremony at the pier overlooking the water and had the reception at the spectacular Puget Sound Hall where we had a gigantic fish tank with hundreds of fish as a focal point. Our guests enjoyed watching the otter feeding along with their hors d'oeuvres and they were free to roam around and explore the entire aquarium. We had a number of children at our wedding and we heared that the "touch tanks" were a hit. Philadelphia (the aquarium's event manager) and her staff were amazing partners/collaborators. They were professional and accommodating. They even allowed us to bring our 14 year old dog Ebby to attend the ceremony. We received tons of compliments about this venue. It was simply stunning and we highly recommend it.
