“McKenzie and the team at the Sandpearl were amazing to work with! They executed a ceremony and reception that was better than I could have imagined. It was a dream come true!!”

Mary C.

“We had our wedding at the Sandpearl 5/6/22 and it turned out better than we could have imagined. The wedding ceremony was on the beach and the reception on the gulf lawn- both were beautiful. McKenzie was a pleasure to work with. She was always prompt and accommodating with her responses. The food was amazing, the bartenders were great, and Maria from food and beverages was over the top, phenomenal!
Overall everything was very seamless and I would definitely recommend this venue!”
