Our dream wedding came true!
Shawn and her entire staff at the Beach House were absolutely fabulous. The day & night went so smoothly from the time we set up the reception area & ceremony area, to having to pick up at the end of the night. Jeff & Jim were so helpful and so down to earth for rehearsal the night before as well as the day of. The food was incredible & our entire family loved everything. My husband and I are so happy we picked the Beach House for our dream wedding, as everything was beyond perfect. Thank you Shawn & everyone at the Beach House!Sent on 01/15/2020

Shawn is the consumate perfectionist when it comes to providing details to make the brides and grooms have a wonderful wedding experience. I love to work in this setting right on the beach, and they provide all the goodies a bride and groom expect.
Newly-remodeled restaurant right on the Gulf of Mexico!
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!
