    More than we could've hope for!!!

    Our wedding experience at Opal Sands was top to bottom amazing. Planning the wedding from out of state, Jenna was an all-star to work with. She helped us in every aspect and made what seemed like a difficult task, an absolute breeze. Everyone at the Opal Sands was incredible to work with. Service was impeccable, food was the best we have ever had (guests agreed). Venue is beautiful. Overall speechless and so happy we decided to go with them for our special day. We will be back!!! Cheers!

    Our Dream Wedding

    Hosting our wedding at Opal Sands was an absolute dream come true. Jenna, our catering sales manager, was there to promptly answer questions and put any doubts to rest (amidst COVID-19) starting roughly 1 year prior to our event. She is well-connected with local vendors and coordinators, extremely organized, flexible, considerate, and highly personable. The wedding day itself was absolutely seamless and beautiful. Our guests had nothing but fabulous things to say about the ceremony, happy hour, reception hall, FOOD, open bar, pool, personal rooms, etc etc. With the help of our third-party wedding coordinator services, the day was seamless. They took care of things while I soaked it all in. For a day, there was no pandemic to worry about -- just the best day of my life enjoyed with family and friends. Jenna was understanding and willing to work with our last-minute guest cancellations and other minor, unforeseen events. I will be ever grateful to be a part of the Opal Sands family.
