    So far great service

    Recently me and my fiancé learned the importance of single event spaces. And I have to say that the staff at sand castle really do make you feel like the focus is solely on your special day. We are currently in the process of customizing every detail from the cake down to placement. Every question I have is answered quickly and graciously
