With the chance to get married in such a beautiful place, we want to give back to the area and inspire the conservation of such a place. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is not only one of the top attractions in the Monterey Peninsula area, which we hope you visit while in town, but also one of the leading aquariums working to protect and conserve ocean life while promoting research in critical issues impacting ocean health.

We want to give back to the city where we met each other and where Jackson and Butters became OUR dogs and such a fun and important part of our lives.
