Couple Says "I Do" in Underwater Wedding Celebration at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas

A Savannah couple "took the plunge" and celebrated their vows underwater at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas this past Saturday with their wedding reception following in the Aquarium. Fitted in SCUBA gear, a veil, and flowers, the bride, Dr. Jamie Craine joined her new husband, Mr. Blake Baker in the Great Maya Reef tunnel to the delight of family, friends, and Aquarium visitors.

"She will remember this for a lifetime," said the bride's mother, Debra Craine. "The Aquarium made all of her dreams come true."

Audubon Nature Institute offers a variety of unique opportunities for weddings and proposals.

"We're touched that this couple loves the Aquarium and sea life so much they wanted to celebrate their marriage in one of our habitats. We have a multitude of unique offerings from marriage proposals with our penguins to social and corporate dinners in front of the breathtaking Gulf of Mexico exhibit." 
Audubon Nature Institute Manager of Special Events, Denise Sarver
