Shell Island Resort is the perfect place to have your beach wedding. The staff there is great.
We love Shell Island and have done countless weddings here over the years. It's oceanfront and all rooms are as well! You can house your guests and wedding party in one spot and get married on the beach right outside the hotel. They have nice ballrooms to host your reception right on site. Alex and her team are amazing! You'll be pleased for sure!
