    Wedding Venue-Amazing Space and Staff

    Samantha and Corina were fabulous to work with! Our Costa Rica wedding was cancelled due to COVID and when it came time to select another wedding venue, we thank our lucky stars we found Wild Dunes Resort. They're planning, preparation, and attention to detail made our special day picture-perfect. The North Lawn is a stunning space overlooking the beach and lined with gorgeous palms and oak trees. The staff did an outstanding job from start to finish on our wedding day. I cannot possibly contain enough words to completely express our appreciation for a perfect wedding day!

    From the mom of the bride

    Our daughter always wanted a beach wedding, and we could not have picked a better location. Wild Dunes Resort exceeded every expectation we had. The beach front wedding and North lawn reception was just spectacular. The pre-approved vendor list made selecting contracted services (DJ, wedding cake, decor, photo/video) very easy, and we were surprised all but one vendor we had already wanted to work with was on the list. The one vendor that was not on the list was easily accepted (string duo). Mother Nature truly came through for a November wedding and allowed us to keep everything outdoors, but I have no doubt the back-up location would have been beautiful, as well. Samantha Ivain was remarkable. She met every challenge we put before her (with a smile), and truly went above and beyond to make sure our daughter's wedding was beautiful, fun, full of delicious food, and allowed my husband and I to just show up and enjoy the moment. We loved everything and had the best weekend.
