      This year’s Breakfast with Santa was so well done. While adhering to Covid-19 CDC guidance for public events, you were able to not only comply with the rules, but also, elevate the experience from years past. The addition of hosted seating, linens, glass tableware and table service were just a few of the improvements. Not to mention the delicious and creative food choices; deep fried French toast, sausage and bacon, egg soufflé cups, fruit kabobs and yogurt parfaits. Our members were blown away by all of the small details and thought that was put into this event.

      Thank you for everything you did in the days and months (and years!) leading up to yesterday, and of course everything that you did and led your staff in doing yesterday. It was all that we dreamed of and more. We have been receiving texts all morning telling us how amazing it was – because it was.

      The Maritime Aquarium Event staff turned our wedding dreams into a reality! They made sure all our decorations were beautifully placed, made sure we had everything we needed to feel confident and assuage our fears. The staff were so attentive to our needs, making sure we had drinks and food! You could also really tell that the staff genuinely cares about the well being of the animals for whom the aquarium is home.

      Just as we thought, the Maritime Aquarium gave us the best wedding experience we could have possibly had! The venue was incredible for photography and our guests absolutely loved the experience; many of our guests have reached out after the event to tell us that it was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding, and we believe them!

      We plan to wholeheartedly recommend a wedding at the Norwalk Aquarium to anyone who loves the sea and the creatures who live in it!

      Thank you again for helping us celebrate the start of our life together. We couldn’t have picked a better host!

      We wanted to express our gratitude to you and your team at Philip Stone Caterers, for helping us throw one of the most memorable, fun and endearing nights in our lives. Sammy’s Bar-Mitzvah was a huge success and all of our guests commented on how great the venue and your team were. You guys were so unbelievable from start to finish. We know there are at times many cooks in the kitchen between our invited guests and other vendors and Catherine was so gracious and patient all the way through, how you maintain your calm, we can all learn from.
      We have been to many catered events, but nothing beat what your chefs have cooked up for us at our event. Wow!! Please express our thanks to your crew from all of us at the Lax family. My favorite though was when Catherine came up to me and we had a chance to dance and be merry.

      Thank you!

      I can’t thank you enough for producing such any amazing evening for us!  The dinner was a big hit – can’t even count how many texts I received the next morning from guests telling me how much they enjoyed themselves. I loved the ambiance of mingling among the fish tanks  during cocktail hour. The food stations were excellent, and everyone raved about the dessert “parade.” It was a magical evening that we will remember forever.  It was a pleasure working with you.  Only wish I had another event to plan at the Aquarium.

      You handled everything like a seasoned pro and with a smile on your face. Thank you for EVERYTHING!! It was the most hands-off I’ve ever been for an event I cared so much about, and that was because of the confidence you instilled – starting on day one.

      The kids and faculty alike had a fantastic time at the prom.  Many said it was the best one yet!  I can’t thank you enough for making the planning process so easy and – dare I say – FUN! : ) The energy you and your staff bring to this occasion plays a significant role in the success of the evening. We can’t wait for next year!
