Amazing Wedding Experience!
We had our wedding at the Emerald Grande on 3/13/21. Through the entire process, Emily was always our main point of contact and our hired wedding coordinator. She coordinated with our vendors, made our day of timeline, set up the HarborView Room for the reception, on top of so many things I can’t begin to name. We got married on the Captain’s Deck overlooking the bay and the setting was so beautiful! We had our 50 person reception in the HarbourView room which boasts so much character and charm for the beach setting. The sunset at the end of the evening was the icing on the cake. All of our guests had so much fun and we received so many compliments on how amazing the food was. Emily and her team are simply amazing!Sent on 03/15/2021

Emily & Christine are amazing!
We got married this past October at the Emerald Grande (on the beach) and everything was absolutely perfect! We live in Fort Worth Texas so we actually booked the Emerald Grande before even seeing it! We had been in contact with Emily Buckley and had many phone calls with her and she answered all of our questions and got rid of any doubts we may have had about the venue. Emily & Christine were AMAZING and so much fun! Months, weeks, and days leading up to our wedding they were always available to help us when needed. Emily made sure our wedding day went by smoothly - and I must say - there truly were no issues or hiccups at all! It was my own wedding & it was easiest, most seamless day because of her! The food at our reception was also sooo tasty! We did buffet style & it turned out perfect. Definitely not the normal/gross wedding food that I've had in the past. The fried coconut shrimp was my husbands favorite appetizer! It was by far the wedding I've been too ;) Highly recommend the Emerald Grande, & highly recommend using Emily & Christine!Sent on 12/15/2019

The most amazing wedding and reception!
My husband and I were extremely happy with how our wedding and reception turned out! We are from out of town, and communicating was a breeze. You can put your trust in them to get everything how you want it for your big day! I highly recommend them, and wouldn't change a thing about our wedding!Sent on 03/04/2020
Emerald Grande at Harborwalk Village is a beautiful place to have a wedding. I have been an on-location HMUA at this hotel many times and the rooms are always beautiful, clean, and spacious with spectacular views. I endorse this vendor.
A perfect wedding venue with views of the turquoise Gulf waters that is breathtakingly beautiful. The professional staff here are a pleasure to work with, very friendly and most accommodating. Great accommodations for your wedding guests, with an assortment of restaurants and shopping on site.
