    Perfectly Perfect

    This was a stunning venue. While COVID prevented us from getting married on the sand, the sun deck ceremony we had was beyond beautiful. Our reception was in the conference room and turned out incredible. The landscaping and grounds of the hotel provided for a perfect day! Thank you to Loren for all the help and communication. Our day was absolutely wonderful and so enjoyable!

    Rehearsal Dinner Venue

    We held our rehearsal dinner at the Lighthouse Suites and had a wonderful experience planning and executing our event with their team. Everyone we worked with was responsive and professional. The event space itself was also perfect for our event. We definitely recommend as a rehearsal space and also as a hotel for your wedding guests.
