    The Pelican Inn is an absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding! Our first daughter was married at the Inn last May and our second daughter will be married there next weekend! One of the best parts about the Inn is that the entire bridal party and our family all stayed at the Inn for the entire wedding weekend. We had 110 people for the first wedding and it was a perfect fit plenty of room to spread out. From the beauty of the sprawling porches and beautiful creek dock it makes for an outstanding venue for a wedding. It has a wonderful kitchen for a catering staff and a great courtyard for dancing!
