Testimonials

We love weddings and work hard to ensure our clients are happy! Here's what a few clients have had to say:

Craig...
We highly recommend Sonesta Resort as the ideal wedding venue. The resort has the perfect location by the beach, an absolutely professional, personable, detailed and flexible wedding specialist, and a fabulous chef. Additionally, the wedding specialist/resort has relationships with key vendors who all work seamlessly together. At the end of wedding, EVERY guest commented how it was one of the best weddings they had attended and loved the venue. Our daughter thought it was the fairy tale wedding she had dreamed of for years. Disappointed with other venues, on a whim we arrived at Sonesta unannounced and unexpected on October 30, 2015. From the second our daughter walked into the expansive lobby of the Sonesta Resort, she had her WOW moment. Without an appointment, the resort Wedding Specialist, Theresa Anthony, welcomed us like we were old friends. Theresa worked closely with us over 18 months. She constantly took the weight of the event off our shoulders and eased our anxiety. She was an extremely good listener and seasoned expert providing excellent advice when needed. For the taste testing, we were served by the Chef and his staff. The food was five star quality and raved upon by all guests on the wedding day. On the wedding day, Theresa ensured the pavilion was set-up beautifully and on time coordinating with the vendors and resort staff. Unfortunately, it rained all morning preventing set-up on the beach. Theresa calmly presented us various options. We decided to move the ceremony to the pavilion. The Sonesta staff accommodated the change with a beautiful layout. The point being that unexpected things will happen and Theresa along with the Sonesta staff proved they have the experience, demeanor, talent and flexibility to adjust to unexpected issues to still provide the dream wedding. We highly recommend you call and visit the Sonesta Resort if you are considering a beach venue in the Southeast.

The sonesta was the perfect venue for our wedding and wedding rehearsal dinner. Theresa Anthony is lovely and responsive and made the wedding planning process easy! We did not have a planner, nor did we need one thanks to Theresa. The pavilion was a beautiful location for our reception, and it was a blast! The sonesta was flexible and we were able to turn our wedding vision into reality.

Words cannot describe how absolutely wonderful our wedding was at Sonesta Resort. The friendly staff, scrumptious food, flawless service and stunning venue were out of this world. You cannot pick a more stunning setting and location on the water. My husband and I were blown away by how smoothly the weekend went between our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception. Like many other reviewers mention, Theresa Anthony is an absolute gem. She is incredibly responsive, professional, organized, and kind. She was so supportive and knowledgeable throughout the planning process. While the venue hosts multiple events in one weekend, the staff at Sonesta made my husband and I feel like we were the most important people of the weekend as well as all of our family and friends. They went out of their way to ensure that things went just right for everyone. I cannot say enough about Sonesta Resort. We were out of town guests and we have family and friends planning future visits back at Sonesta already! Everything about our wedding weekend at Sonesta was absolutely PERFECT!! Thank you!

 

The wedding consultant was Samantha, and she was efficient, friendly and a complete delight to be around. She had everything in order for our wedding.
