Brewer is the best! She was able to find the perfect spot for my simple but elegant beach ceremony. She was responsive when the Company who was making my bouquet and boutineer for my husband messed up and forgot to make them!!!! Brewer made a beautiful arrangement. She’s the greatest!

We hired Padre Ryan for our Port Aransas wedding reception in October 2017 and it was amazing! Brewer is seriously awesome - she is so energetic and she truly cares about providing the absolute best experience for her clients. We had an amazing time at our reception - the beach was gorgeous, the layout was exactly what I wanted, and the BBQ dinner was delicious! The bonfire was awesome and I loved the s'mores. I wish I could relive the day again! Brewer is also very flexible and responsive. Earlier in the week we thought for sure it was going to rain on our wedding day, and she was patient and accommodating while I found a backup location. She met us the day before on the beach and at our backup location, to scope out both spots. We were so fortunate that the rain held off. Brewer and her team picked up the flowers and our wedding cake and delivered them to our cottage the day of the wedding, which was so helpful. She was also a huge help after Hurricane Harvey hit and we had to scramble a bit to find other accommodations for our guests. Last but not least, when our officiant had to cancel due to the hurricane, she was able to find us another officiant at the last minute (her sister, who was lovely!). Always in Bloom provided the flowers and they were gorgeous! We also added photography to our package, and Philip really seemed to know what he was doing. He was very responsive and flexible and arrived on time - I can't wait to see the pictures!

Amazing group to work with! So, so pleased how everything turned out. The ceremony decor was all from them, and matched the theme I wanted to go with perfectly for the beach. Our wedding coordinator was easy to work with and get a hold of when needed. Very happy with photography and videography - couldn't have turned out better and they were so fun to work with! Food was great, Dj was great...was able to play my prepared list of songs as well as keep people dancing all night! Definitely recommend for any and all services they offer!

From day one everything was perfect and they made me feel like my dream wedding was waiting for me. I had constant contact with them and felt like I didn't have to worry about anything all I needed to do was show up for my beach wedding. They made my dream wedding on the beach happen and I am so thankful to everyone who put in the hard work of setting up the chairs our photographer the officiant and Wayne for all his hard work as well. I am so happy that we used them to make our dream day come true its something I will never forget it was beautiful very intimate and the little personal details that were added made everything perfect.

We had our wedding ceremony at 09/18/2015, in Port Aransas, at the Sunrise, it was awesome! We are very happy we had chosen Padre Ryan Team for this work! Everything was excellent: we met first on the beach with Rae (we come from Dallas for our special research trip in advance), we discussed all items and parts of the ceremony by phone and e-mail with her later, she made a great job to not forget any detail of out ceremony! I’m extremely grateful to her and Padre Ryan Team for their excellent job! My dream, my fairy tale comes true! Photograph Laura was very cool, she helped us by telling us the scenario of the postures. I enjoyed by working with them! My husband said: "I'm so glad I've just been there and could not think about anything just participate ..." Thank you Team!

This company is fantastic! They took over my destination wedding when my last planner bailed out with only 4 months to go! They were incredible professional, I could contact my planners anytime I needed them by personal number or text! They helped calm a very stressed bride and made our day the most wonderful day ever!! I highly recommend them for your Port Aransas/Padre Island/Corpus Christi beach wedding!!

Amber and Erica were amazing. I Was in touch with amber for months. She always answered me promptly. The day before the wedding I saw my cakes and was not happy. They fixed it. They made my day absolutely perfect and stress free. The photographer mindy blew me away. She was beyond awesome to work with. Took charge and Moved quickly to get our beach photos done so
We could get to reception. She never missed a thing. I cannot rave enough about the amazing service I received. (They took care of my photography, ceremony, reception centerpieces , all flowers, and cakes)

Ryan, Kaitlin and all of the staff involved were attentive and took care of everything. Being out of town we relied on their company for everything.
They went above and beyond even providing a solution for a Friday issue they were not involved in - they made our life easier and the wedding awesome.

I highly recommend Port A Beach Weddings by Padre Ryan. They planned the most romantic, beautiful wedding, it was my dream wedding come to life. They were professional and responsive. We were able to start with their wedding package and add our own personal touches to make it unique to us. The photographer captured such amazing shots that our family members who were unable to join us, could see the love surrounding us on our special day. They are a great company to work with!!

Kaitlin Schmidt was so great! She exceeded all of my expectations as my personal wedding planner and made my day so memorable. I would tell anyone looking to this company to ask for her to be assigned as their wedding planner!
Laci · Married on 08/02/2014
The LEAST stressful thing I have EVER done. I've been married before and I'm telling you South Padre Ryan was GREAR, but Mel our coordinator made it all OFF THE CHARTS! From the big stuff to the littlest detail I just trusted her from the first time I talked to her and I was right she didn't forget a thing!!! WE ARE FOREVER GREATFUL THAT OUR PREFECT DAY WAS JUST THAT....PERFECT!

When our original planner left the company we were not notified and were not assigned to another planner. This took a number of phone calls to resolve. Once assigned to our new planner, he was not as responsive to requests as we were hoping. We took the initiative to request that he set up weekly phone calls with us (about 10 weeks before the wedding up until the week before the wedding) to discuss details and to help oversee the planning process. Once this was put into place, the planning process was simple and flawless. I would recommend to future couples that use Padre Ryan to make sure you get what you are paying for and to take the initiative to make sure communication is frequent and objective. Once you have this, you will be extremely happy with the end result. Knowing how everything turned out, I would most definitely recommend them.

Everything was as good as could be with the weather working against us. I wish the seaweed was raked away.

I really loved how flexible PadreRyan was regarding our payments.
