Palafox Wharf was the perfect choice for my wedding reception! Beautiful outdoor & indoor space, Sandy was always quick to respond, sent lots of helpful emails & was able to accommodate me when I had to postpone my wedding due to Covid. Their list of preferred vendors was also a great help to me as a bride planning her wedding from another state and they all turned out to be fantastic! I also wanted to give a shout out to the in house wedding coordinator, Neil Zanthos! I hired him for partial planning so he finalized everything with my vendors 30 days out, scheduled their set up time, clean up, etc. He also coordinated the reception and was above and beyond FANTASTIC. He came up to me several times throughout the night for my opinion on things, to see if I needed anything, always made sure my drink was full, etc. A couple drinks were spilled & he was cleaning them up within 2 seconds of it happening. Very responsive, kind and helpful. Cannot recommend him enough! A joy to work with and if you’re even thinking about adding him onto your package with Palafox Wharf you definitely should! 10/10.Sent on 05/03/2021

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.
