I can’t imagine our reception being anywhere else! The moment we stepped into Palafox Wharf Waterfront, we knew we wanted to have our reception there. The entire venue, and grounds are so gorgeous day and night. The deck was perfect for cocktail hour and for guests to enjoy the waterfront sunset views. The inside was so clean and beautiful, all the wood details and romantic lighting were stunning. It truly made for the wedding of our dreams! So much of that was possible thanks to Sandy, the owner. Her speedy communication, and genuinely sweet and helpful personality, made the entire process so easy and enjoyable. We are also super grateful for Neil, their in-house planner/coordinator. He ensured every last detail was better than we could have ever imagined. We are so grateful that this venue was such an integral part of our favorite day!Sent on 04/30/2020

Great Christmas Party
Our firm had our Christmas party at this venue last year. It was a wonderful experience. The venue is beautiful! Sandy was very responsive and very helpful with all of our needs. She made suggestions that really helped our process. The caterer that we used was recommended by Sandy and his food was fabulous! This venue and Sandy made our firm Christmas party one of the best.Sent on 10/20/2020

Palafox Wharf Waterfront is simply stunning venue itself. Very Unique and tons of opportunity to allow your day to stand out there as well. Sandy and her husband are amazing to works alongside as well. They both hold tons of knowledge of the area which helps when planning your big event. We enjoy each and every event we assist with at their Venue.
