Here's what past guests had to say about their Long Island Aquarium function...


Shelter Island, New York

It has been one month since my daughter Nancy's wedding. However, everything you said about how great this wedding will be came true. I remember you kept saying, "I'm going to blow your mind" and I didn't realize at the time that you were right. Our friends and family are still saying that is was the best wedding they ever attended.

My wife and Nancy called you their personal wedding planner because you made everything so effortless for them. Your recommendations on the people to engage for the multi things that had to be coordinated were invaluable to them.

Your staff could not have been better as far as attitude and caring. A superstar is doing something right over there and I have to assume that it is your leadership.

From the champagne cocktails upon arrival to the great cocktail party, to a fabulous dinner with a wonderful DJ, to the photos and the video's, to the limos and drivers, to the beautiful surroundings, and, finally the ultimate walk over the bridge upon exiting, everything was just what the doctor ordered.

Thank you for giving my daughter and her family and friends such a magnificent day.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect! The aquarium looked beautiful and the food was excellent. All of your staff did a wonderful job. They were very helpful and attentive to all of our needs as well as our guests! They still rave about how much fun they had! Barbara also did a beautiful job tooling on the bridge! We really appreciated everything you did before and during the wedding! It was the best!

All we can say is "WOW – what a terrific evening!!" Evan's Bar Mitzvah was an event truly remembered by all our family and friends.

Not only is the aquarium a beautiful place to be, but the service and food were also spectacular!

You were a pleasure to work with and we wanted to thank you and your staff for all you did.

Evan's Bar Mitvah is a memory we will treasure forever!!

We wanted to thank you for making every part of our wedding so perfect. From planning, to the actual day, you were always there to be helpful, friendly and supportive. Your staff showed us the same wonderful qualities and made our wedding at Atlantis very memorable. The effort you and your staff put into our wedding will forever be appreciated.

Thank you so much for everything!

Every last detail was taken care of and we cherish every moment of our evening. We had so many guests tell us how impressed they were with the transformation of the aquarium into a setting for a unique and beautiful wedding!

Again, I thank you, your staff, and all the marine life that provided such a beautiful background!

Best wishes,
Julie and John

You and your team made our day PERFECT!! It was completely stress free and my guests still talk about how great the wedding was. I really can't thank you enough for everything you did. We will never forget our wedding day! Even my brother (the DJ) said it was one of his favorite venues to work.

Thank you again for everything!

I really don’t know where to begin. Well, that first day we met, I wasn’t sure if it was safe to take you seriously! Your matter of fact, eager to please and easygoing demeanor was hard to accept, let alone believe. We had visited a few other wedding reception establishments, including the aquarium in Norwalk, CT., but we were not impressed with the places or the people. The places we visited seemed to be just a space with four walls, and the people we saw seemed to just be doing their job.

You my friend are the real deal. Our first visit to the Aquarium was in stark contrast to all the facilities we had seen prior. The Aquarium had so many venues it was difficult for us to choose which one they liked the most. Jacob was so excited. This was a real big leap from his goldfish tank at home. Certainly the aquarium was far more than just four walls. The prospect of having our guests enjoy Atlantis’ many sea creatures as well as enjoy Leila and Joe’s wedding was very exciting indeed. Danny you were genuine, interested and sincere in trying to make us as comfortable and content as possible. You answered all our questions and offered many suggestions to enhance Leila and Joe’s wedding day. From ideas on arrangements for guests to the dinner menu you guided and directed more like a concerned family member. You met every visit Kathy and I made with open arms. Like we had known each other all our lives, like family. Yes Danny, I consider you like family!

All of this concern for us made for a fantastic wedding day! Because of all the attention to detail the day was not a surprise but more an expected conclusion to a very well planned event. Thanks to you we were prepared for almost anything, weather, meltdowns and even unruly children. We are pleased beyond words could accurately express with you and Atlantis. Leila looked so amazing! Just like a fairytale princess and certainly just like “the daughter I always wanted”.

Everyone who attended is still talking about some memorable aspect of the wedding that was especially meaningful for him or her. Family and friends alike were taken back with everything Atlantis had to offer. That ranges from the ambience, the dinner, the hors d’oeuvres, the desserts, the DJ, the shark tank, the octopus, the Reverend, the waiters, you, and so on and so on and so on it goes.

So thank you for being such wonderful new member of our family. We also want to thank your great staff, who did a super job for all our guests and us. Danny it was an extreme pleasure to greet you into our family. We hope to become members so Jacob and the rest of the gang can come and visit you and Atlantis many, many times. God bless you and we hope to see you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Nick and Jeanette

Thank you all for the best memory that will last forever!

A heartfelt thank you for making our special day a memory "never to be forgotten". Family and friends are still calling us saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Nick and I are so overwhelmed with gratitude that cannot be expressed in this letter but maybe with a few words; excellent attentiveness, provided with professional, courteous, knowledge and care. You all surpassed our expectations.

Here is feedback we had gotten from some of our guests; "I felt like a V.I.P. from beginning to end. The service was outstanding. I have never been to a wedding that fun. The staff was friendly and enjoyable. We didn't know an aquarium catered such fine food. The cocktail hour with the seafood boat, and passing hors d' oeuvres blew me away."

Ron, our Maitre d', had us so organized for the whole timeline of events, including when our limo was late and Ron asked if he could drive us anywhere. Thank you, Ron.

Tracy, our bridal attendant, was awesome. I had a guest asking me to do something and I said to my guest "Tracy is supposed to be taking care of this." I felt a little overwhelmed, turned around, and Tracy was right there every time! Thank you, Tracy.

Ken, our captain, the behind the scenes man, had everyone running like clockwork. He coordinated all food and timing...excellent job! Thank you, Ken.

Chef Sean, a special kudos to you for the offerings you gave. From the appetizers to the desserts and everything in between, you satisfied every palate at every table, and did it with a beautiful culinary presentation. Thank you, Sean.

At the end of the night Ron and Tracy had a care package for us to take home. I felt like it was just a dream come true. We were truly catered to in every aspect of our event. We will certainly be back again for another special event.

Thank you sincerely,
Nick and Jeanette
