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

Amazing venue and staff
Sandy and Neil are just AMAZING. This venue is so beautiful being right on the water and very quiet/intimate being in the heart of downtown. I also had my ceremony on the lawn and it was picture perfect. Friends and family traveled out of town for my wedding and could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue and location was. Sandy has been so helpful since day 1 with recommendations, emailing vendors, keeping in contact with me and helping me get everything set up for my wedding. Neil was on-site during my wedding and was the sweetest, most patient person. He helped everything run smoothly during my wedding day and I could not thank him enough! If the Palafox Wharf is on your list of potential venues, PICK IT!!! I promise you, you will not regret it.Sent on 09/04/2019

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.
We have been working with this venue since they opened their doors. We cannot say enough good things about Sandy, her team, the beautiful venue and stunning view! My staff love working at this venue so I know you and your guests will love it too! I highly recommend the Palafox Wharf.
Exceptional reception venue. Sandy was a pleasure to work with each time.
