Pop the Question
Proposals & Engagement Photos
If your intended is a lover of all things aquatic, why not pop the question in a place that will amaze her and inspire her to say "Yes!".
You can get a diver or a penguin to assist you and we have photographers to capture the moment.
These cute, tuxedoed groomsmen may not make it to the wedding, but they can still help you pop the question. Plan a memorable wedding proposal with the playful penguins of the Newport Aquarium. You and your bride-to-be will get an exclusive, 20-minute encounter with our African Penguins, who will crowd around her while you drop to one knee.
Your proposal includes a 4x6 penguin art created beforehand by one of our African penguins.
The Penguin House can accommodate up to 15 guests.
You and your special someone can attend a Dive Show in Shark Ray Bay Theatre. At the conclusion of the show, you'll be invited up for a photo opportunity, when one of our divers will present a “Will You Marry Me?” sign.
The rest is up to you. We suggest you seal it with a kiss!
You can pose with breathtaking views of the Cincinnati skyline and Ohio River along with a multitude of colorful Aquarium Exhibits.
"I wanted to thank you so much for getting everything set up for the most amazing day of my life. Your staff members were excellent. Liz had no idea the entire time. Hats off to you and your crew. Absolutely amazing and something that we will remember forever! Truly an amazing experience and it couldn't of happened without yourself and the staff at the aquarium, so thank you very much!!!!!"
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in planning my proposal. Everything went great and Lindsay was so excited and surprised. I just wanted to say thank you for letting us share such a special event in our lives in such an amazing way. Thank you again for all of your help!"
