Nothing short of Amazing!
Anne Marie was such a pleasure to work with. She was very accommodating to our wedding party. They opened a separate traffic lane making ease of entry a breeze. The pavilion was clean and a nice spot for people to hang out at before the wedding. The staff brought my grandma to and from the beach on a big wheeled wheel chair. The staff over saw that things went smoothly for us. I highly recommend this venue!Sent on 06/17/2019

Wedding of a Lifetime
My husband and I had the wedding of a Lifetime! Everything exceeded our wildest dreams. The weather was perfect, the sands were soo white and soft, the wind was just right! I'm still smiling from our blissful moment. If anyone ever asks me about having their wedding in Destin, Henderson will be my immediate response. The beach goers were respectful and we were allotted our own private space!Sent on 06/12/2019

Absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Very friendly and helpful with questions. I would highly recommend them for a wedding venue. I had my ceremony on the beach and had the reception at the pavilion located directly behind.Sent on 05/08/2019
