    Sandy is the best. She is good at her job as day of coordinator. Shephard's Beach Resort is a great venue for a wedding. My family thoroughly enjoyed the venue.

    Sharyn (the coordinator) was amazing to work with. She was professional from the beginning and gave us a full tour and budget breakdown the day of our tour based on our expected needs so we knew exactly what we were getting at the price. She was always responsive to emails and allowed us to customize our wedding while still maintaining their standards of excellence. She was willing to meet with us whenever we were in town, just to touch base and keep an open line of communication.

    Day of, she was attentive, in communication (without being stressful or overbearing), and attentive to details (I forgot a table number on a place card and she not only found the error, but corrected it). She let us go and rest for ~20 min. after our first look and personally came to tell us it was time to be married! The ceremony was stunning and set up beautifully. She had suggestions for picture locations and communicated with all our vendors so well.

    At the reception, the food was AMAZING and the service was phenomenal. They were dressed in appropriate tuxes that were professional, but not out of place and they were fantastic at keeping everyone full of food and drinks! The MC was a blast, he communicated with us what would be happening in chunks of time and made sure we had everything we needed. After that, he ran the show! The DJ staff was great, we gave them our breakdown of songs and events we wanted to have happen and let them run the soundtrack for the open dances and they did a fantastic job.

    The resort itself was great, friendly staff, and the honeymoon suite was comped for 2 nights! It was so fun to allow everyone the opportunity to do what they wanted without any pressure. Estelle, one of the front staff in the lobby, was AMAZING. She upgraded our room and helped us with everything we needed and proceeded to check in with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction whenever she saw us around.

    Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
