You’re looking for somewhere unforgettable to celebrate your wedding -- and what place could be more memorable than the Long Island Aquarium? Where else can you wander in a butterfly garden, watch penguins sliding and sharks swimming, and say your big “I do,” all in one spot? We’re pretty sure the answer is nowhere!
Managed by Atlantis Banquets and Events, weddings at the Aquarium are a truly breathtaking experience. You can choose to have your ceremony inside (though whether or not you do it next to the sharks might be cause for some debate!) or in the Riverside Pavilion, looking out over the water. The marina here is the perfect place to wander with your wedding party and capture a few priceless photos as the sun begins to set.
Inside, they have several banquet spaces to choose from, each designed to evoke different parts of life under the sea. Do you want to have dinner under the skeleton of a giant shark? Next to tanks of tropical fish? Or on the terrace, with views of the water? It’s all there. The only difficulty is selecting which amazing location you want to use!
The beautiful spaces are set off by stunning service: a personal bridal attendant, valet parking, and complimentary coat check attendants, as well as both a maitre d’ and a wedding consultant to help you pull it all together. Though you can’t stay overnight in the aquarium itself (darn!) the Hyatt Place East End is right next door, adding an extra touch of convenience to your planning.
The Long Island Aquarium gives you the sort of venue that your guests will be talking about for years to come. We’ve been in awe of every wedding we’ve had the good luck to photograph there -- we can’t wait to see how spectacular yours is too!
