What People Say

Catherine Marion & Family


"Thank you so much for helping us create a beautiful moment for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. They were overjoyed by their surroundings, the service, the meal... everything was more than they expected!  We were thrilled with every aspect of our event, from the help we received with the planning to Chelsea trying to help me recover from my soaked candles 5 minutes before dinner!  The chef and his creations were beyond delicious, not to mention the extra goodies we were not expecting!


Truly, you offer a beautiful setting and the service to match!  We will be recommending Aquatopia to everyone and anyone!

~ A Letter From The Bride ~

Miguel and I want to say thank you to you and the team at Aquatopia for all of your hard work and dedication to make our special day perfect. Our wedding was planned in only a couple of months, and we were able to surprises our family and closet friends without a hitch! Every time I came in (usually with kids), you made me feel at ease. I know your job is, in part, to keep the bride calm… and you definetely did that! Because of the circumstances (it being a surprise wedding), I couldn’t really talk to anyone else about it. You were always so excited for us, and I needed that. Thank you.

The day of the event, you worked very hard at getting the venue ready for our early ceremony. I usually have hard time delegating because I like to be in control of everything, especially for such an important celebration. But not once did I worry or doubt you the morning of our wedding. I knew it would look beautiful.. and it was more than I could imagine!! 

The flowers were stunning!! I received so many compliments on my bouquet and other arrangements.  The food was delicious! In fact, the bison was the best cut of meat I’ve ever had and cooked to perfection! Chef Reshad was very attentive and professional. With my sister’s diet restrictions, he really went above and beyond to accommodate her. 

Thank you!!

"We held our wedding and reception at Aquatopia and the venue and staff were so wonderful. The venue is truly one of a kind and my guests were very impressed with the setting. It is gorgeous and the ambient noise from the water gardens really adds to the feeling of a destination wedding just a short drive away from Ottawa. Chef Reshad is an amazing chef, the staff is so attentive to the needs of the guests. The team of wedding coordinators were wonderful and easy to work with. They always got back to my emails within 24 hours and were always thinking of things that I might have overlooked. One thing to know is that they do make you use the in house florals because it is what they are experts at. All of the florals were perfect for the wedding. We feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful wedding at such a beautiful venue.Thank you Aquatopia!"

"I absolutely loved this venue. Given that we couldn't travel for our wedding, we were still able to get the feel of a destination wedding right here in the city. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, some of the friendliest and most amazing employees and I would strongly recommend Aquatopia to anyone. They truly made our day one to remember and I felt like I was in a dream land the entire day. It couldn't have been more perfect. If you are looking for a unique, stunning and gorgeous location for you wedding any time of the year, this is the place to go!"
