    Beach House

    The Beach House was the perfect wedding venue. Shawn made the process so easy and stress free. They provided options for vendors for florist, officiant, photography etc and each and every vendor we had was also amazing. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and all the staff went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. The food was so good and the options were endless. I would highly recommend the Beach House for any wedding. Thanks Shawn and team for making our special day perfect!!!

The Beachhouse is one of my favorite venues to work with! As a wedding planner, they keep my clients happy, and make working with them a pleasure. The food, views and service are all above reproach, and the value for the price is something anyone can appreciate. I cannot say enough about how fun and easy they are, from both a planner and a bride's perspective, and cannot wait until I can work with them again!
