We had our wedding at Surf & Sand this past December and the day could not have been more perfect. Not only is this a breathtakingly beautiful venue, but the staff was absolutely amazing. We worked with Chiara and she was there with us every step of the way. I always felt like she had everything on track and was never worried about them dropping the ball. She was one step ahead of me the entire time. I can’t thank her enough for ensuring that our wedding day was perfect. As for the venue, the food was phenomenal. Our wedding guests continue to tell us how delicious everything was. The staff was very friendly and attentive and every last detail was taken care of. Everything that we asked for Chiara made sure was done for us. I can’t say enough great things about this venue. If you are looking for a beach wedding this is the venue for you.– Jamie-Dee, Wedding Wire
