    My husband and I were married 5 years ago and had our reception at the Reef. We were so happy with the way the Reef took care of everything and treated our guests that.., our daughter had her wedding their 2 weeks ago. She planned a beach wedding. Unfortunately the weather had a different plan. Needless to say The Reef helped save the day with bringing it in. The Reef was so professional and helpful that many guests mentioned how wonderful they were. Thank you so much for helping make our daughters wedding great! :)

    Thank you for this lovely review! It was a wonderful experience being a part of your daughters special day. We were happy to host your family and guests and we hope to see you all back soon!
    Thank you and best wishes to all - Danielle Morse & The Reef Staff
