This weekend hubby and I took a last minute trip to Georgia Aquarium! I love aquariums and I’ve heard so many good things about the one in Atlanta. I’ve wanted to go for a long time, and finally, we were able to afford a visit.

We went on both Saturday and Sunday, which enabled us to get a good view of everything we wanted to see. I was the most excited about the penguins, otters, and the dolphins. The otters were so playful and fun to watch. The penguins and dolphins didn’t disappoint either, and thanks to hubby, I got a great picture with a dolphin! One of my favourite features was the domes in the penguin exhibit. I’ve never been to an aquarium that had peek holes and I love the view they gave of the penguins. They were standing so close to where I was and the pictures were amazing!

As for Robert, he got to touch a shark! He is always excited about seeing sharks, so getting to touch one was a great experience for him. We’re hoping that next time we go we can partake in one of the animal encounters. Dolphins are my favourite animals and I would love to interact with one.

Since I’m always thinking about weddings, I couldn’t help noticing how perfect an aquarium would be for a wedding. The tanks make for an unforgettable backdrop and great entertainment for the guests. Also, can you imagine the wedding pictures? Basically, I’m confessing that an aquarium inspired wedding post is right around the corner. If you love the ocean and want to incorporate that passion into your wedding, be sure to keep an eye out for my next post!
