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!

This was our choice for our rehearsal dinner!
Complimented our “destination island” themed wedding weekend. The private venue offered a spectacular view of the bay! Event coordinator Meredith and her staff went above and beyond to make this a truly memorable experience for all. They exceeded our expectation in regards to quantity and quality of food - their attention to detail in the room presentation and decorations - and their friendliness and professionalism - making this night memorable for all! We continue to receive compliments from the wedding party, friends and family !! It was a wonderful kick off for our wedding weekend!!
