Evening Wedding

Our evening wedding at the REEF in their Ocean鈥檚 Edge private room was magical. Danielle, their event coordinator, was wonderful, attentive to our every need. We were married in front of the windows facing the ocean, and that began our perfect evening. An open bar was set up on the upper deck, our DJ by the dance floor, and lovely table settings for our guests. The food was outstanding, with our guests able to choose steak, chicken or mahi mahi. We danced the night away, with everyone having a great time! Now we are planning our one year anniversary party and will be returning to the REEF as we can鈥檛 imagine a more perfect place! Thank you, Danielle, and the entire staff of the REEF!

Amazing Venue!

I booked The Reef for one of my brides back in November and I could not say enough good things about Danielle and the team at The Reef! Danielle was communicative throughout the wedding planning process and helped answer all our questions since the bride and I were coming from out of town. On wedding day, the staff was very friendly, helpful and hard working! The food was incredible and the weather was perfect for their sweet ceremony on the beach. We had around 50 guests and the reception space accommodated everyone perfectly! If you are looking for an all inclusive beach wedding venue, I highly suggest hiring the Reef! Can't wait until my next event here!!

2024 Rehearsal Dinner

We gathered in Vilano Beach for a small on the beach wedding. As we all traveled from out of state, we wanted a large rehearsal dinner to gather all the friends and family,

From the early planning Danielle was very responsive. We visited for a tasting in October and Taylor and all the staff were just as nice as could be. We even asked her if she wanted to work the dinner and six months later she was there!!

We did not bring in any decorations as they were not needed with the crisp white linens and beautiful ocean backdrop.

I would highly recommend this location and Danielle and team to help make your event special!
