I don't even know where to start! My husband and I had our wedding reception September 16, 2017 and it was absolutely perfect. This place is AMAZING. They exceeded all of my hopes and dreams. The staff was SO attentive and helpful all night long, not just to me and my husband but to ALL the guests! The food was absolutely delicious. My guests still talk about how amazing the food was, and just how it was basically the best wedding they've ever been to! I promise you will not be disappointed in choosing this beautiful venue. Wish I could relive that day over and over again!! Thanks again for making my wedding day the best party ever and the best day of my life !

Sand Castle created the "Circle of Love" theme for our wedding, and it was amazing. Even though it rained, Sand Castle recreated our outdoor garden theme, and brought it inside because of the rain. The Imperial wedding menu comes with seven wonderful entrees. Every food course on the menu was amazing, and the staff was warm, loving, and amazing as well. This was one of the best days of my life. Working with Lola Argyris, Mohamed Kessba, and Dina Vlamakis was an amazing and great experience. The warmest, and professional people you could ever ask for to be in charge over your wedding, at the venue. Making Sand Castle our venue choice for our wedding, turned out to be the "RIGHT" choice/decision we could have ever made!!!!!!!!! #ilovesandcastle #shesfinallycurtis
