They Knocked it Out of the Park!!
Ali Martin worked our wedding this weekend, and I can't say enough about what a fantastic job she did. We had a ton of DIY decor that we brought in for her and Dan to set up, and they made the place look INCREDIBLE!! Our guests haven't stopped talking about the food and the incredible variety in the station menu. From Asian to Mexican to Southern food, Acqua does it all, and they do it SO WELL! The food was displayed in such an artistic way, it made the already delicious food look and taste even better!Sent on 07/08/2019
Molly runs such an honest business, her and her staff made this entire experience an enjoyable one. With so many other venues we looked at, it seemed like there were hidden costs everywhere, but at the Acqua, we knew all our money was going toward the food, drinks, and service fees, and it was worth every penny. She helped us select the perfect menu for our event, and we loved the fact that as the owner of the business that she was accessible to her customers and willing to offer any and all advice!
They did a fantastic job accommodating our vendors, from our DJ, to our decorator and photographer--everyone was able to come together and help create a truly unforgettable day for my husband and I. The view of the sunset over the water is a moment in time my husband and I will cherish forever. It was the perfect backdrop for those wedding photos I've dreamed of taking my whole life.
The new renovations to the harbor room were BEAUTIFUL, and completely transformed the place. With the neutral backdrop of the walls, and the stunning chandelier lighting, it's truly a space any bride can mold and transform into her vision.
So many of our guests came up to us at the end of the night, and said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and without Ali, Molly, and the rest of the wonderful staff at Acqua, none of this would have been possible. Any future brides out there looking for a venue, you need to check this place out. They made all our dreams come true, and gave us memories that our friends and family will cherish for the rest of our lives
