    We had our reception at the Ramada on 04.23.16 and we really enjoyed our experience. Veronica Clark was a pleasure to work with! We were planning our wedding from Georgia so I was a little nervous, but everything turned out perfect! The food was delicious, the only complaint was the food wasn't left out longer so we could eat more! The staff was very attentive and we used their chair covers and centerpieces and we loved those as well!

    Thanks Ramada!

    Amazing wedding team at the Island

    Brooke Wheeler really made our wedding a dream come true. We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid, and Brooke was there for us no matter what, to make whatever changes needed to happen to change our date and was incredibly accommodating in every way. From the moment that we first met Brooke in the lobby of the resort for our tour of the venues to the day we checked out after our week-long wedding, she was always there with a genuine smile, willing to do whatever she could to make us happy. Throughout the wedding planning process, Brooke was the one person we had full faith in; she gave my husband and me a sense of calm, and we knew that she had everything under control for our wedding. Brooke's advice was most appreciated, and I wish I even took more of it when it came to vendors; she truly knows what is best and always has her bride and groom's best interest at heart. Brooke, as a person, quickly became someone we loved and cared about. The wedding team at the Island was on top of everything going on at all times. Megan was also exceptional and there for us when we needed her; you can tell she loves her job and will do whatever it takes to make her brides and grooms happy, and we very much appreciated her. I would highly recommend getting married on the Island, not just for the fantastic venues but also because of the incredible wedding team that works hard to make all of your dreams come true.
