“Our family and friends felt our daughter’s wedding reception was the most unique, fun experience they have had at a wedding. All have been commenting on what a great time they had. My husband and I were particularly happy that all the money we spent on rental goes to and stay at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. What a plus!! A win-win situation!”
