Wedding dreams become reality at Acqua
We cannot say enough about what a fantastic job Acqua did to make our wedding dreams a reality. First off, Alison Potter is amazing. She is honest, hard-working, and when she makes a promise she delivers. Alison accommodated us living in Baltimore by making sure when we were in town we were able to meet and get things done in a short amount of time.Sent on 10/25/2019
The renovations to Acqua are breathtaking and have come such a long way. The outdoor bar was closed and falling apart when we first toured Acqua May of 2018, but by the summer of 2019, the bar was up and running with fresh paint- perfect to enjoy the gorgeous views of the water. The Harbor Room has been completely transformed with neutral walls, stunning lighting, and beautiful new floors. The night before my wedding Alison emailed me a picture of the new sails that Rick (the handyman) finished specifically for our wedding. Rick was also amazing. He fixed and cleaned every little detail to make Acqua as beautiful as ever.
Christy was our day of coordinator at Acqua. We met with her the Thursday before our wedding with all our DIY wedding decor. All she needed us to do was to put post-its on things if we knew where we wanted them to go. The rest she did. When we arrived at Acqua the day of our wedding we were completely blown away. Christy got our vision and made it a reality. She did an incredible job with all our décor and everything was absolutely perfect.
The views at Acqua are what made us choose this venue for our wedding, but the food is incredible and the staff is accommodating. So many of our guests came up to us at the end of the night to tell us how amazing the food was and how beautiful the venue was.
Any future brides out there- check this place out. I promise it won’t disappoint! They made all our wedding dreams come true.
