Magical Beach Wedding
Andrea Hammet, vendors and hotel team bent over backwards to make this a truly magical event. Myself, husband, family and friends were blown away with the attention to every detail before during and after our events. There were no surprises except happy ones. We also held our rehearsal dinner at Post Card Inn. Every employee involved worked hard to ensure the events went off without a hitch. They were constantly asking is there anything else we can do for you? My wedding was small (30) and the North Beach at Pelican Cove was a perfect intimate setting! Thank you Andrea and team! We will be back to celebrate our 1 yr anniversary!Sent on 07/07/2019

Amazing Wedding Experience
Pelican Cove was perfect for our small (30 guests) beach wedding. All of the employees were wonderful especially Gail at the hotel bar who is just delightful, Tony who fixed our AC and ensured the beach was perfect for our wedding, and all the staff who always greeted us with smiles and congratulations. We love PCR and cannot wait to celebrate our anniversary there next year! Our guests were super happy and we were thrilled with the services and Amenities.Sent on 05/06/2019

We had our wedding booked at Postcard Inn, and after the hurricane, we found out that the venue would not be ready. While we were disappointed, Andrea and her team came up with alternate places for us and we were able to switch venues and still keep our original date. We chose Pelican Cove which was right next door and just as beautiful! We were their first wedding post hurricane, and we had the best time and our guests loved everything as well. From the sand in our toes, to the gorgeous water and sky, to the delicious food and cake... we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! We enjoyed having the tiki bar opened later for our family and friends for our rehearsal dinner/welcome party and for our wedding (the bartenders were great!). We were also very happy to be able to rent fire pits to have on the beach. Andrea was always available through email or phone to answer our questions. She met with us and the wedding planner a couple weeks prior to our wedding and was present and involved with making everything run smoothly our entire wedding weekend! We had an amazing wedding and all our guests are still raving about it!Sent on 04/14/2018
