After a year plus planning and with much of your patience we have one last change...Just kidding!

You put together a perfect evening including ordering a full moon!! In addition, the La Crema bottle of wine and sweet card was so thoughtful!The resort is spectacular, but it was you who designed the evening for us!

Thank you so very much Kerry! We had such an amazing and forever memorable night!!

"Susan Wesselhoft and her staff are the consummate wedding professionals... 

When rain required us to bring our entire outdoor reception inside, I thought that the wedding I had spent a year planning would result in disaster. But the transition was seamless. The staff created an indoor environment that was unique and which set the backdrop for a party that people are still talking about! I can't thank Susan and her staff enough for their hard work and for helping to save my wedding."

"Everything went great! As planned. Perfect and near perfect...

It met all our needs and expectations almost exact. A huge thank you to all at the Acqualina, to Matt, Nicholas Demitry and to you especially. The food and the service was really the very best it can possibly be. Not a flaw or disappointment. Just very surprised that with every dish and every service how consistently fine and excellent it was each time."

"When I am looking for a 5-star hotel property that offers the highest level of service along with a tranquil charm that you may not find in the deeply-congested South Beach, I turn to Acqualina...

It is located just a few miles north of South Beach yet also offers ocean views.  It is a hotel like no other and the perfect spot for a wedding weekend celebration!"

"We had the wedding of our dreams at Acqualina...

The level of service was professional, seamless and had an extra level of un-asked for pampering that made us feel so valued and cared for, on this most special of occasions.  When a rainy weather forecast made us change our original wedding plan, the Acqualina staff made sure the Plan B was even better than the original plan.  We would highly recommend Acqualina to anyone considering a picture perfect wedding in Florida."
