Our perfect wedding day
I'm so glad we found Waterline Resort in our search to find the perfect place for our wedding in our favorite place, Anna Maria Island. We knew the moment we walked in the door that it was exactly what we were looking for for our small group of close family and friends. We did a menu tasting and the food was outstanding. It was easy to go over the details and get everything in place. Megan was our event coordinator and she was fabulous. She got back to us with any questions always in a timely fashion, always so pleasant, and she executed our vision into a reality perfectly. We held the ceremony on the beach at their sister location down the road, Mainsail. Then the reception was at Waterline. Can't say enough good about everything and everyone here. Can we do it again?!?Sent on 11/13/2019

Waterline was amazing!
I worked with Grant and then there was a last minute switch over to Megan and I was nervous. Megan went above and beyond and did a great job with everything,Sent on 01/10/2020

Toes in the Sand!
Grant was WONDERFUL and so easy to work with! I would love to work with her on every event I ever do! She worked with my budget and EVERYTHING was PERFECT!
We had a beautiful wedding with our toes in the sand and the reception was more than I could have imagined.
Thank you Grant and Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club for making my wedding day what I had dreamed of!
