Wedding Elegance at Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach


The beach resort's stunning location provides a dramatic backdrop for both the wedding ceremony and reception. No matter which venue couples choose, Acqualina is an intimate resort with grand amenities, offering a variety of options to create a wedding experience that is distinctly their own.

At 3,230 square feet, the Great Lawn is Acqualina’s largest outdoor event space, facilitating up to 120 guests for seated dinner or 200 person for a reception. The area can be tented and air conditioned to keep guests cool on balmy South Florida nights.

Another stunning oceanfront location is Front Lawn Center, facilitating up to 80 guests for seated dinner or 200 person reception, while Front Lawn North is the perfect outdoor option facilitating up to 60 guests for seated dinner or 200 person reception.

If the couple prefers an indoor space that still allows guests to experience a beach atmosphere, the Mediterranean Room & Terrace features the best of both worlds with an adjoining oceanfront, wrap-around terrace. This indoor/outdoor space facilitates up to 120 guests for seated dinner or 150 person reception, and can be split into three separate rooms with hidden walls.

Ideal for up to 80 guests for seated dinner or 150 person reception, the Recreation Pool offers poolside cabanas along its perimeter that can be used as serving stations.


Before the nuptials occur, there’s no better place for bridal party groups and wedding guests to socialize in breathtaking dining venues - the newly opened, Tuscan-inspired Piazzetta Marketplace and Restaurant and the renowned Italian restaurant Il Mulino New York.

Piazzetta, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, is the idyllic restaurant perfect for Bridal Showers and Bachelorette/Bachelor parties. The young at heart will be happy hosting a gelato social with European charm, and sophisticated palates will enjoy use of the market’s Wine Corner that offers a large selection of the best wines from around the world with an emphasis on private vintages.

Renowned for its bustling and energetic atmosphere, tempting cuisine, and impeccably polished wait staff, New York-import Il Mulino will satisfy taste buds with market fresh daily specials and an extensive selection of fine Italian wines.


Commemorate the bride and groom's soon-to-be union with a unique take on a Bridal Shower or Bachelorette spa in one of the opulent treatment rooms at Acqualina Spa by ESPA, ranked number one by Spas of America. The 20,000-square-foot space holds private spa suites outfitted with balconies overlooking the glistening Atlantic, and a pool deck perfect for late-night lounging, allowing wedding parties to continue their celebrations with poolside cocktails under the stars and plenty of space for games and socializing. Acqualina Spa by ESPA adds to the stress-free,  unparalleled South Florida wedding experience with a selection of treatments  designed to prepare brides and grooms, and their wedding parties, to look and feel their very best on wedding day while helping establish a sense of calm and peace.

Wedding guests will fall in love with ESPA’s new Orange Blossom Treatment, which channels the wedding destination using ingredients from the orange family, for which Florida is renowned. This truly therapeutic experience provides nourishment and regeneration for tired, dull and lifeless skin.
