You'll regret it if you don't get married in this magical water conservatory!

My husband (ooo I like the sound of that) and I just got married on May 11, 2019 at Aquatopia and I have to say, Aquatopia surpassed our expectations. They are the whole package including, venue, ceremony, reception, bar (& alcohol), food, decorations, florals, DJ etc.) so it just made the wedding planning a breeze. Madison and Chelsea (event coordinators) were absolutely incredible… they were so easy to work with from start to finish to create what was our dream wedding. Our guests couldn’t stop raving about how well the day flowed and that it was clear they knew how to coordinate a wedding. I could go on and on and on about Aquatopia but I will leave you with this:

1. You won't regret it.
2. It's magical.
3. Worth every single penny.
4. This where you should get married.
5. If you don't, you'll regret it.

Our Special Day in a Tropical Paradise

Aquatopia Water Garden Conservatory was the setting of our dream wedding. Everyone from our coordinators, to the chef, to the wonderful owners were quite involved in making sure our day was perfect and tailored to our needs. Our guests raved about everything from the beautiful tropical setting to the delicious food and generous hors d'oeuvres and of course the fun, party atmosphere at night. We are so thankful to Aquatopia for bringing our special day to fruition.

Making our dream wedding a reality!

Aquatopia was the perfect venue for our March 8th wedding. Every guest commented on what a beautiful venue it was with all the lush greenery and tropical feel. Our wedding coordinator (Ryan) was incredibly helpful in making sure each and every detail was taken care of for our big day. The chef (Reshad) cooked up a delicious feast for our guests and made sure to accommodate every allergy. The flowers by Justyne were beautiful and she brought to life the vision we had for a lush winter romantic floral feel. The staff were very courteous and fast taking care of our guests’ needs from a new drink to serving each course at the same time. We are so happy we chose Aquatopia as our venue and would highly recommend them to anyone. - Julie & Elad

Excellent customer service and outstanding cuisine!

I would like to thank all the staff at Aquatopia who helped make my son’s wedding such a wonderful experience this past September.

In particular, Chef Reshad created the most delicious food for all the guests, and then took great care with my own personal meal with all my serious food allergies. I was able to relax completely, my meal was delicious, and Chef Reshad was very kind and attentive. Thank you again, Chef Reshad!

Best experience!

The Aquatopia team was amazing - they planned our wedding in just one month and it was the most beautiful day. I can't speak more highly of them. The flowers were so beautiful, the food was delicious, and they made the whole experience relaxing as they have onsite event coordinators which saves you a lot of time and stress in the planning process and on the day of the wedding. We had a both a hindu and christian ceremony and our reception in one day at Aquatopia and couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

I strongly recommend this wedding venue.

I strongly recommend this wedding venue. My partner and I held our wedding ceremony and reception at Aquatopia last summer, and we could not have been happier with how everything came together. The fact that the venue is beautiful practically goes without saying, so I’ll try to focus on what the photos might not capture.

Madison and Chelsea, the main coordinators that we worked with, were incredible. My partner and I live five hours away from Ottawa, so we were initially very nervous about planning a wedding from a distance. However, Madison and Chelsea made the entire process very easy. They were quick to respond over email and very helpful during the in-person meetings that we were able to have. In the weeks before the wedding, most of the questions about how we should handle certain parts of the wedding were met with the answer, “We do that for you,” which was very reassuring.

We had a good experience with accessibility at this venue – particularly in terms of sensory accessibility. A glass room off of the dance floor served as a quiet space for our guests. In addition to preparing delicious food, Chef Reshad and his staff were accommodating of all dietary restrictions. The bathrooms are gendered (or were at the time our event), but a larger bathroom typically reserved for the wedding party could serve as a gender-neutral bathroom.

We opted for the house DJ – Evan Thibault – who was fantastic. His team played all the songs we’d requested both for the ceremony and the reception, and they did an amazing job of reading the crowd to play music everyone would enjoy.

Thanks very much to everyone at Aquatopia! We wish you well.

Most Incredible Experience!!

The most breathtaking venue for your dream wedding! Aquatopia was nothing but perfect to us. From our very first intro meeting, to our décor consultation, to the food tasting, everyone was professional yet super friendly. Their in-house florist took my whole vision and made it real life, and their in-house wedding coordinators took the gold medal for being so attentive to the details and making the experience run so smoothly!

Couldn't have picked a better venue than this! A big thank you to them for being part of my special day.

Amazing experience

All together they were amazing! We had our wedding the day after the tornados in Ottawa so all power was out everywhere! They had generators running and from a guest/bride standpoint there was no way to tell! Everything ran smoothly, food was amazing, and the music kept everyone dancing. Overall I would highly recommend Aquatopia as a wedding venue or even for a large event!
