Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With a super-convenient downtown Atlanta location, this gorgeous aquarium—the largest in the western hemisphere—boasts an incredible collection of sea life and multiple stylish celebration rooms. Bonus feel-good points: your rental fees help support ongoing conservation, education, and research efforts.
  • The sleek, contemporary event spaces are outfitted with incredible aquatic viewing windows, which offer dazzling peeks into Ocean Voyager and Cold Water Quest galleries. Specialized lighting throughout the rooms and on the ceilings enhance the tranquil, undersea vibe.
  • Your package comes with day-of wedding coordination, catering by exclusive partners Wolfgang Puck, and access to a lovely bridal suite for your preparations. But our favorite perk of all? A complimentary annual membership to the Aquarium so you can return to visit your new ocean friends all year round.
