    Cancelled COVID wedding but AMAZING customer service experience

    Maryland COVID bride here, planned the initial destination wedding for November 2020. Found Shephard's Beach Resort online and met with Leah Herring the day that we decided to book this as our wedding venue. Little did I know, there were not many options where you have a "private" area of the beach to get married on. This was very very important to me at the time. The fact that this resort also was a one stop shop for everything else like after party (venue turns to a night club after hours), this sealed the deal for us. Leah was amazing to work with and she was super responsive throughout our whole planning process. We had to reschedule due to COVID for today, April 3rd, 2021. Leah was SOOO understanding and allowed us to reschedule without even batting an eye.

    We went for a menu tasting the next time we were in Florida and the food was out of this world yummy! We got to bring my husband's mom and step dad along for the ride. We also brought my niece and Leah and the cooks prepared her her own little special chicken nugget meal as we tried wedding food. Leah was so accommodating to us.

    Just over a couple months ago, my husband and I found out that we were expecting our first child. The anxiety of COVID along with our doctors recommendations unfortunately meant we had to cancel our rescheduled wedding all together. Leah again was SOOO understanding and let us out of the contract. She wished us well wishes for our future baby! She was super helpful and communicative throughout the whole planning process and really made me feel comfortable about having our wedding here from the start! I wish we got to use this venue and her services in the end, but know we will be using her in a few years for our vow renewal ceremony in Clearwater.

    Shephard's Beach Resort - PERFECTION

    There is truly not a better venue out there! From the views of the gulf, floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous sunsets, private beach, BEST FOOD IMAGINABLE, to the wonderful staff. I would get married over and over again and Shephard's was the reason why! Thank you so much for giving me my dream wedding. All my guests could not stop talking about the wedding itself and every other aspect at Shephard's! GO BOOK YOUR DREAM DAY HERE!
