I went to look at this vineyard and fell in love with it. Reminded me of being in Italy. The family is amazing and made us more than comfortable. It felt like home is how I can best describe it. Talking with Suzanne and Joe and the family was what made us decide to have our wedding there. It wasn’t a meeting it was like Sunday dinner. For those of you who are Italian you will know what I mean. They are so flexible and so easy to work with. I couldn’t be happier with our decision.Sent on 07/16/2018

Acquaviva was the most amazing wedding venue we could have asked for. From the beautiful views of getting married in a vineyard, to the comfort of working with such a great coordinator (Suzanne), we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
First off, the venue is absolutely beautiful. The ceremony overlooked the vineyard and the entire property was gorgeous. The layout of the venue was perfect. We had 185 guests, it was spacious enough to where nobody felt crammed but the whole setting still felt intimate. The food was also FANTASTIC! All of our guests have continued to rave about how delicious it was for weeks after the wedding!
The best part about Acquaviva was working with Suzanne, the events coordinator. She was so incredibly helpful, responsive and comforting. During the stressful time that is wedding planning, Suzanne answered all of our questions very quickly, met with us about a million extra times and put us at ease with the whole planning process!Sent on 11/13/2019

Amazing Wedding Ceremony & Reception
Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at Acquaviva Winery. The ceremony was held in the vineyard. The wedding went perfectly as planned. The weather was great! All our venders worked well together to create the best wedding day.
Working with Suzanne and Brianna was wonderful and easy. They did an amazing job at helping us plan the day and making sure it went smoothly.
We had rented out the guest house the night of the wedding. The groom, the grooms men and grooms family were able to hang out, have lunch and great ready there. The house worked great for them! The groom and his grooms men went down to the market to have wine, they had great service in the market from Julie!
The service during the reception was fantastic. I (the bride) did not realize on of our guest had a dietary restriction. The guest had mentioned to Brianna during dinner and Brianna came back with a different meal for our guest. Our guest was very happy with the service provided.
All of our guest raved about the service and the food!! They loved that during dinner the staff would bring more bottles of wine to the table when the bottle at their table was empty! The food was great! It is made to order and delicious.
Also, like any wedding, a lot of drinks were spilled on the dance floor. The staff was very attentive and within in seconds they were there to mop it up! This allowed our guest to continue dancing all night long.
We had left a lot of the stuff at the winery to pick up the next day. When we went in to grab it Vito was their to greet us. He helped us with gather all of our stuff. We could not thank him enough. He was the best bartender the night of the wedding!! He always provides the best service.
We had spent almost 2 years planning our wedding with Acquaviva. Suzanne, Brianna, Vito, Joe, Paul, Julie, and the rest of the Acquaviva staff have become like family! We love to go back for lunch or dinner. Plus we are wine club members so it gives us an excuse to go more often. =Sent on 11/26/2019
