WOW! Our wedding at the Aquarium of the Pacific was so amazing. Honestly, our guests say that it was one of THE BEST weddings they have ever been to. One couple said that it was high school prom experience they wish they had but never did. I mean, what is better than having the entire Aquarium to yourself?

Now, I'd like to start off by saying that Tamera, the catering sales manager, is absolutely a DOLL! She was so accommodating, attentive and positive. She was prompt with her responses and diligent about details. She really helped to personalize my wedding.

Secondly (and I think most importantly), I have to admit that I am a foodie. My husband and I love to eat out and good places and we are known by our friends and family as the ones to go to when you need a good place to eat. That being said, the food made by SAVOR was A-MAZ-ING. All of my guests were truly impressed with the food at my wedding. Now, I know that we have all been to weddings and have had "wedding food." One of my guests said to me, word for word, "The food at your wedding was amazing and the quality of a four star restaurant. It did not taste like wedding food AT ALL." Guys, this was music to my ears. They also stated that their servers were amazing.

Also, Tamera made the best suggestion for the children who attended the wedding. During the dinner, we hired two educators and the children ages 3-11 had a pizza party and gave the adults a date night break from their children. The children loved it and they didn't want to leave. They said the educators were so knowledgeable and friendly!

Lastly, I am very detail-oriented and so is my husband. We had very specific visions of how our guest books and dessert table would be set up. The staff at the Aquarium were able to execute our vision to a T!

You need to book this venue NOW. Also, you need to get the potato taco and pulled pork sliders as appetizers. You will NOT be disappointed!

We had our wedding at the Aquarium of the Pacific on July 19th. It was the wedding of our dreams and was absolutely perfect!!! We were the first couple to get married on the rooftop terrace overlooking the water and it was breathtaking. The guests walked through the galleries during the cocktail hour and were amazed at all the different kinds of fish and the delicious tray passed appetizers. The reception was in the great hall and the excellent staff at the Aquarium set up the venue in no time to wow the guests!!!! When I walked into the reception I couldn't believe my eyes, it was so beautiful and nothing that I would have expected. The attention to detail, friendly staff and the atmosphere itself created the wedding of our dreams. Also, the food was mouthwatering and was catered by SAVOR. My guests could not stop talking about the appetizers and the beef filet and crab cakes! None of this would have been possible without Tamera Schulz, the senior catering sales manager. She was wonderful to work with, organized and pays great attention to detail. Not to mention she takes the time to get to know you and is very friendly and personable. Any bride would be lucky to have someone like Tamera to work with and I would highly recommend getting married at the Aquarium fo the Pacific, it is so unique and will be a venue that your guests will talk about for a long time!

Thank you again Tamera and the staff at the Aquarium of the Pacific,

Lauren and Kris

We had our wedding and reception on the Roof Top Terrace (Edited to add: the review following ours made claim to be the first wedding on the RTT - Our wedding was in fact the very first on the RTT... theirs was 3 weeks later - sorry, Lauren & Kris!) ... Tamera and everyone involved in SAVOR and the Aquarium of the Pacific worked together to make our wedding exactly what we envisioned it to be. And to top that off, the overall cost compared to similar venues / services was very competitive.... Tamera was receptive and made all efforts to successfully accommodate setup of decor, tables, entertainment... Our wedding was unique in that it was a reflection of ourselves as a couple, and our family & friends - a celebration honoring all of us. So it had authentic personality, was fun, comfortable, yet still possessed the sophistication one would expect for such an event. The dinner selection was exquisite, the service was excellent. The comment from our roughly 100 guests that my partner, Andrew, and I heard most was that it was "the best wedding ever." Everyone truly had a wonderful, unforgettable time. Tamera and the team were not only instrumental, but phenomenally effective in allowing us to achieve that atmosphere.

Tamera and her team were so helpful from beginning to end. Since our 1st meeting with Tamera, she would always make time for us on our busy schedules, meeting us after hours or on the weekends to accommodate us.She is so organized, knowledgeable,and so quick with her responses when we contacted her via email or phone. She was so amazing at our wedding as well. During our wedding she made our day flow so nice and smooth.I got so many compliments on how professional the staff were and how good the food was as well. I can't thanks her and her staff enough. I would highly suggest Savor and Tamera's professional team.

Incredible! Our wedding wouldn't be successful without the help of Tamera and her lovely catering crew!

Tamera... our awesome catering manager was exceptional and beyond!!! She truly made our wedding experience at the Aquarium unforgettable!! Only negative would be that for now on, it would be so hard to top this experience.

First off, my wedding was this past Saturday and all my guests are still feeling the excitement from the weekend since that's all they've been talking about in the past few days. My wedding turned out beautiful and the venue was everything I wanted it to be for me and my guests. Annessa, the catering manager, is a sweetheart. I corresponded with her through e-mail & in person countless times since August when she took over the position. She was always responsive and accommodating, especially when it came to changes which were many and detailed down to the day before the wedding. It's a moderately priced venue but it was worthy every bit--for $79-$89 pp your guests get an appetizer, salad, and entree plus explore the Aquarium. Many guests told me that they didn't get bored and that my wedding was unique. I had the shark lagoon too so the guests got to pet sharks and rays.
