    Great vendor!

    This venue is beautiful and Meredith was super responsive to all of my emails and questions. However we wanted to have a beach ceremony more, so we hired another venue (it was a very difficult decision). We’ve also had dinner at Doc’s and the food and service is exceptional! I have NO DOUBT that if we chose them for our wedding, it would have been perfect. If you still want a waterfront wedding and have a smaller guest list, this is the place!

    Perfection

    Where do we begin?! Doc Ford’s was the perfect place for our wedding. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception/dance at Doc’s House and it was perfection. Planning a destination wedding was extremely easy with Meredith’s help. Eric and Jeff were amazing the day of the event, and we truly felt like we could relax! The food and service was excellent (as always), and our guests had a wonderful time. Every single thing went exactly as planned and we are so happy we chose Doc Ford’s!!!

    We got married at Doc Fords a few weeks ago. We did our cocktail hour & reception there and had our ceremony aboard Salty Sam’s Pirate Ship. This was a perfect combination as the ship was able to pull right up to the docs seamlessly. We fell in love with the Doc Fords event venue as soon as we saw it and have absolutely no regrets. The space is on the water and lights up beautifully at night. Meredith worked with us to get every detail taken care of before the wedding (even coordinating with he pirate ship captain!). We are low key and she made planning easy and painless. She was also super patient with us and answered every single question that came up, even after hours and on days she was off. The team that worked during the event, including Jeff, Eric W, and Reid also did an amazing job. They were attentive to everything our guests could possibly need and very professional. The food also exceeded all our expectations. We went with the Captiva package and couldn’t be happier, the prime rib was amazing. The chef also made sure to accommodate special food needs like GF and vegan options. Again, we have no regrets and highly recommend Doc Fords for any private events!
