Mystic Aquarium Testimonials

** Erik, Nikki, and I (also Niki – the intern!) had an incredible time in Mystic, Connecticut. Joe and Taelese were such a great couple to work with and their wedding party had us laughing the entire time. The ceremony was in a cute church on a hill overlooking the town, the dress was absolutely breathtaking (especially when it was spread over rocks on the beach with the fog rolling in and a ship in the background!), and the images are like something out of a movie! Cocktail hour kicked off my favorite part of the day at Mystic Aquarium.

I thought it was such a unique idea and the Beluga Whales were very cooperative for pictures! The reception was held inside where delicious food and good music lasted all night! Narrowing down these pictures was not easy and I hope everyone enjoys them as much as I do. It truly was a fairytale wedding and we wish Joe and Taelese all the best! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this amazing day! Congratulations!

** We would love to thank all of the amazing vendors who helped to make our wedding day one that we will cherish for all of time!

The Mystic Aquarium was an absolute pleasure to work with and we could not have been more pleased with the outcome of our wedding reception! The staff, led by the Director of Catering & Sales, Kathy Lloyd, were friendly, responsive and professional. We loved the unique environment of the aquarium and we hope that our guests enjoyed the time they spent there as well. We would be remiss in failing to mention the quality of the food that we enjoyed during our reception - delicious, timely and hot! This was the resounding comment that guests continue to mention to us.

We would enthusiastically recommend the Mystic Aquarium for any event! The Food was absolutely delicious. It is not a wonder that they are award winning. Feel free to visit our website for additional information & pictures.(

Julia and Tyler's Wedding
Mystic Aquarium was a wonderful place to have our reception. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff was so helpful throughout the planning process, and all of our guests are still talking about what a unique place it was to have a wedding. It was surreal to have the fish swimming all around us during the party. If you're looking for a place that's absolutely beautiful and different from all the typical wedding halls and hotel ballrooms, definitely check this site out!

We can not thank you enough for all you have done for us. Your emotional support & the worry
free day was amazing. We appreciate you setting everything up so beautifully. And most of all thank you for being there. The little glance from across
the room reassured me that our day was

** Thank You so much for an absolutely magical evening! Our guests couldn't say enough about the beautiful setting and amazing food. Please let Chef Trad know that my guests bsolutely raved about their meals. Everything was delicious, especially the appetizers, but the prime rib was praised time after time. Ashley, a special thank you for filling in the gap. The tables were perfect, right down to the bows and butter. Your wait staff did a wonderful job.
Serving the rolls was a very nice touch. Lisa was delighted with it all. We have enjoyed working with you and will treasure the memories of our once in a lifetime event.

With my deepest thanks,

** Just a little note to say a very big thank you for an absolutely beautiful day! Diane, Ashley and I, are still amazed at how perfect you and your staff made this very special day. Ashley has commented over and over again about how professional and kind your staff was. She and Chris could not believe how accommodating they were throughout the day, they seemed to be one step ahead of them. The food was excellent, many of the guests commented on how good it was, which we all agreed - everything was delicious. Your patience and reassuring words, through this very stressful process, kept us from losing our minds. I can't tell you how many times when things got a little crazy someone said, "Let's just call Kathy". You were always available for even the silliest questions. Thanks again for a day we will all remember as absolutely perfect.

You're the best;
Nancy Bidwell
