    This is where you get married

    Sandcastle was beyond a 10/10. They were incredible on all fronts. The flexbility, attention to detail, friendliness, extra touches, staff patience and professionalism and the coordination was all top notch. The food and venue were to die for and the decorations came out beautifully. I cannot say how amazing this place was and how highly we would recommend them. Joanna in particular is one of the bridal attendants and she was fantastic. This is the place to get married!
