First off let me say that this venue was everything we ever wanted and more. When we first looked at the venue they were setting up for a wedding. They took us around the courtyard and dining room and gave us options for the DJ setup, decorations, tables, etc. They then invited us to come and look at it once they finished setting up. It was perfect! Casey was great she responded to all my emails quickly and answered all my questions. The tasting was at their rooftop lounge that over looks the beach and we were the only ones there. The only complaints I have were that my tables were not correct, they ran out of chicken, and the small things like my glow sticks and memory table, were not set up like I wanted. However that was my fault since I was never clear on that. By the help of my sister and a couple of the employees they were able to pull it off before cocktail hour started. The night was incredible. Everyone from the bartenders and servers made sure everyone had want they needed/wanted. They made sure our glasses were full and we got enough food. Everyone was so incredibly nice and helpful. Our wedding took place in the middle of the COVID outbreak. Casey was flexible on everything. She knew that people would drop out last minute and made sure they followed all CDC guidelines. They set up the courtyard like they were having a ceremony and played our ceremony on a big screen, because we were limited to the amount of guest at the church. I cannot say enough good things about this place. My guests loved the venue and location. It was truly magical.Sent on 10/21/2020

Exceeded All Expectations!
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Casa Marina during and leading up to our recent wedding. We held our reception at CM and the space looked stunning, the food was phenomenal and the service was outstanding. We have received an overwhelming number of compliments on the venue, food and service at CM from the guests at our wedding. Their wedding coordinator is amazing! She took the time to understand what was important to us and our details and exceeded expectations in executing our vision. She was very professional and extremely responsive. We got married on June 6th, in the middle of the pandemic, and her flexibility and responsiveness were very much appreciated as we were dealing with various possible scenarios. She even proactively offered suggestions to make the most of the various scenarios we were working through. The entire staff were very easy and enjoyable to work with throughout the wedding day. They exceeded our expectations and we look forward to other opportunities to work with them!Sent on 08/14/2020
Note to brides: If you choose CM, please gain an understanding of all of the services their wedding coordinator and her team provides. I would not have hired a day or wedding coordinator (and saved money) had I understood the extent of their services.
