Great venue to host your wedding and reception. The staff is very hospitable and caters to your preferences. Grant did an amazing job with the beach wedding planning for the ceremony and reception. She, along with Sandy and Zita put everything together perfectly! The food was prepared by the chef at the hotel and it was delicious beyond belief. There was nothing that we would have changed because the service and care overall was done flawlessly.Sent on 01/12/2018

So, I want to first start by saying that we did not get married here, however, we're planning on it since late spring, early summer for our 11-11-17 wedding. Unfortunately, waterline was unable to open in time for our wedding like expected. However, Grant Hart was more than accommodating to make "things right". We we're excited to be able to get married at waterline marina but we're amazed with how Grant helped make our wedding great! We are very fortunate and anyone would be lucky with Grant help coordinating their upcoming wedding!Sent on 11/17/2017
