    Kelly is Amazing you guys!!!

    I absolutely love Kelly Escamilla and Galveston Island Palms!!! This venue has a more intimate family gathering feel. It was really great for what we wanted, which was a wedding that really focused on family and close friends. I had less than 50 people and we had kids there also. The venue has games to keep the kiddos engaged and having fun, which is helpful beyond belief. I had my wedding there at one of the craziest times of year for Galveston, Labor Day weekend which is also hot as all get out. I found Kelly roughly 6-8 months before having our wedding there. She and I clicked instantly on a personal level. We had hour phone conversations right away lol which was awesome. Kelly was so informative and hands on with the planning process. Being a first time bride I had no idea what I was doing, which direction to look, NOTHING! She gave me advice on places local to the area that she was familiar working with, keeping my extremely rocky budget in mind and made my wedding amazing. She’s definitely like family to us.

    Who needs an expensive wedding planner when you book with Kelly and team?!!!

    Was thinking about spending a lot of money for a private wedding planner for my daughter’s Aug 8th wedding, but we booked with Kelly and I have to say… Don’t spend another dime… Kelly and team were so efficient, accommodating, caring, professional and super over the top intuitive… It’s like they read minds and made any adjustments needed just by being observant! They made an extremely normally stressful (but happy) day turn into a wedding to remember! I’ve never been to a more coordinated wedding! Thank you Kelly and Team for everything! We will spread the word of your excellence!! COVID SHMOVID! YOU pulled it off without a hitch! Xoxo Angela

    Perfect Outdoor Venue

    Kelly is very quick to respond and helped with the day tremendously. She has done this for a while so she knows what is needed and she really does "fill in where you forget" She was super flexible with us and went beyond her way to make sure things were they way we wanted them.

    The place is gorgeous and the staff was great. This is such a hidden gem in Galveston.
