Our Special Day in a Tropical Paradise
Making our dream wedding a reality!
Excellent customer service and outstanding cuisine!
In particular, Chef Reshad created the most delicious food for all the guests, and then took great care with my own personal meal with all my serious food allergies. I was able to relax completely, my meal was delicious, and Chef Reshad was very kind and attentive. Thank you again, Chef Reshad!
I strongly recommend this wedding venue.
Madison and Chelsea, the main coordinators that we worked with, were incredible. My partner and I live five hours away from Ottawa, so we were initially very nervous about planning a wedding from a distance. However, Madison and Chelsea made the entire process very easy. They were quick to respond over email and very helpful during the in-person meetings that we were able to have. In the weeks before the wedding, most of the questions about how we should handle certain parts of the wedding were met with the answer, “We do that for you,” which was very reassuring.
We had a good experience with accessibility at this venue – particularly in terms of sensory accessibility. A glass room off of the dance floor served as a quiet space for our guests. In addition to preparing delicious food, Chef Reshad and his staff were accommodating of all dietary restrictions. The bathrooms are gendered (or were at the time our event), but a larger bathroom typically reserved for the wedding party could serve as a gender-neutral bathroom.
We opted for the house DJ – Evan Thibault – who was fantastic. His team played all the songs we’d requested both for the ceremony and the reception, and they did an amazing job of reading the crowd to play music everyone would enjoy.
Thanks very much to everyone at Aquatopia! We wish you well.
Most Incredible Experience!!
Couldn't have picked a better venue than this! A big thank you to them for being part of my special day.
