My husband and I knew when we got engaged that we wanted to get married on a beach and Florida was the perfect place because we both have family there. My Aunt, who lives in Siesta Key, Florida, saw a Sand Petals wedding taking place while she was walking on the beach one day.... Read More She went up to the wedding planner and asked for a card so she could give it to me. She said the wedding was beautiful and that we should consider getting married in Siesta Key and using Sand Petals. Well the research began. I found out that Siesta Key is ranked as the #1 beach in the US. Then I began looking at the Sand Petals website which described out all of the different options. My dad, my husband and I decided we had to go check it out for ourselves. We met with Lisa who couldn't have been nicer. She went over every detail with us and my husband and I became so excited. Before making a final decision, we decided to go check the beach out. As we walked out on the beach imaging everything Lisa had just told us, we knew it was perfect for us. So, we went back the next day to meet with Lisa one last time before we flew home to Maryland. We picked a date, made a deposit and the wedding planning began. Now I was a bit worried about how I would plan a wedding in Florida while living in Maryland. I can't thank Lisa and Catherine enough for answering every question I had. I was a rookie at this, so I had no idea what I was getting into, but Lisa and Catherine made it so easy. We had several emails back and forth over the 10 or so months. They also gave me a bridal questionnaire packet that explained exactly what I needed to pick out. They even provided all of the vendors, so I didn't have to go searching for them. My husband and I went back to see Lisa and Catherine a couple months later so we could choose the décor, colors, etc. which helped a lot because we got to see first hand what we were choosing. When the big day finally came, I could see the wedding tent going up from my room. I would peak out every now and then to see what else had been set up. Each time I looked, I would get more excited. Once I finally got out on the beach, dressed and ready to go, I was completely blown away. It was amazing. It was everything I had ever dreamed of. Every detail was perfect. The officiant was very sweet, food was amazing, staff was very helpful and friendly, the cake was out of this world, and the DJ played every song we wanted to hear and more. This combination made for a unforgettable wedding. Every guest repeated over and over how beautiful everything was. I even had several people tell me that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Lisa and Catherine did such an amazing job helping me plan my dream wedding and getting every detail perfect down to the last bow. As I look back now, 3 weeks later, I wouldn't change a single thing. I am so thankful for Lisa and Catherine. They are truly amazing and I would recommend Sand Petals to any and every new bride. You wont regret it!

Where do I start?Communication was a huge deal for us.Kathi and Lisa were there for us from day one with any questions we may have had either by email,phone or in person.The only complaint we have is not owning a time machine to go back in time to experience our wedding day all... Read More over again.It was so perfect.From the smallest details to the more intricate things,everything was perfect.I have been known to leave a wedding and bring back fast food to the table for myself because of horrible wedding food.I will normally eat a good meal before a wedding because of this.Our food was so good.Every thing from the appetizers to the cake was amazing.The food smelled so good I was distracted and couldn't wait until we were over with the photo shoot so that we could eat.Which brings us to our wedding photographer.He was very professional and down to earth.He sent us a few teaser photos via email and our jaws literally dropped.We cannot wait to get the rest of the photos from him.We had friends and family from both Pennsylvania and Florida.Most from Florida.To hear our guest from Florida who have seen their share of beach weddings say that our wedding was the best beach wedding they have ever been to made us very happy and was confirmation that we had made the right choice when we decided to go with Sand Petal Weddings to help us with our wedding.Our guest were kept on their toes and there was never a dull moment at the reception.The entertainment was amazing.Every time we though it was about to end the entertainers came out with something else.We are still receiving texts,calls and emails about how much fun everyone had.There are even talks about having a yearly thing back at the venue with everyone who was there for the wedding.This kind of buzz does not happen if everyone didn't have a good time.The theme was perfect.From the colors to how everything was decorated.Lisa did an amazing job taking care of all of that.It will be very hard to top that day.A day that we had worked so hard for and for so long was made a reality with the help of Sand Petal Weddings.We both agreed that if anyone would ask,that we would absolutely,without a shadow of a doubt recommend Sand Petal Weddings as their go-to wedding planners.We honestly cannot find one thing to complain about even if we tried.The wedding went so smooth with the help of Kathi and Lisa.We did not feel like just another customer with them.We felt the urge on their part to make our wedding the most memorable day of our lives and they definitely followed through with that.We couldn't be any happier.We truly felt like a king and queen that day as should any bride and groom should feel on their special day.We appreciate every single thing that this company has done for us.Our guest could not stop talking about how beautiful everything was,how great the food was,how much fun they had watching the entertainers do their thing.The participation from the bride and groom during the entertainment segment had everyone laughing and smiling from ear to ear.All the vendors were great and very professional.I really can't say enough about Sand Petal Weddings and I would recommend them to anybody looking to make their dream wedding a reality.A huge, HUGE THANK YOU to Lisa and Kathi from Sand Petal Weddings for making our dream beach wedding come true and having it done so perfectly.It'll be something we will remember and talk about with our friends and family for a very long time.

This was our dream beach wedding!

Cathy and Lisa from Sand Petal Weddings are seasoned professionals in the business of planning weddings and it showed in every little detail of our big day. Planning a wedding from another state was something we were initially nervous about, but they made it easy for us by going... Read More through the process step by step, laying out all of choices and reminding us of what decisions needed to be made by when. They were also incredibly accommodating about some of the elements of our event that we wanted to customize. I feel like as a bride leading up to the big day I had some of the normal stresses, but what I noticed about my day in comparison to so many other weddings I've been a part of was that I felt like I didn't have a care in the world on the big day! I woke up, went for a walk on the beach, had coffee with some of my family and had plenty of time to get ready with my bridesmaids and have our photographer take some photos of the girls before it was show time - Cathy and Lisa literally ran the show on the day of and I did not have to worry about a thing! And what made it even better was showing up later and seeing how absolutely beautiful everything was set up; exactly according to plan. The DJ was great; we had some impromptu speeches and an impromptu singer and he was really awesome about going with the flow and making everything fit right in. I have to say planning long distance, one of my biggest worries was the food and not be able to try it beforehand...IT WAS DELICIOUS and all of our guests RAVED about the food! And to top it all off, instead of wedding cake, we requested the caterer make 3 different kinds of custom Brazilian desserts; they passed the test with flying colors - half of our wedding guests were Brazilian and they gave the dessert a thumbs up! Same thing with the bartenders, one of our prerequisites was that they needed to be able to make caipirinhas which is a traditional Brazilian cocktail, and Cathy and Lisa made sure they were equipped to do so beforehand. We really can't thank this team enough - you made our day one that we could re-live a million times over and discover something new and wonderful we loved about it each time

Thank you for making our wedding a day we will never forget!

My husband and I got married in May earlier this year. We live in Chicago but knew we wanted to marry and have our reception on the beach in Florida. We looked at resorts, restaurants, museums, etc but when we found Sand Petal we thought it was almost too good to be true. These... Read More guys are a one stop shop which when you are planning from a distance, cannot be beat! I will say I was a pretty hands off bride, we filled out the check list and I truly put my trust in the professionals. Lisa even called me a month before the wedding to ask about color scheme, my novice eyes had created a hodgepodge of colors but after vaguely explaining what I was looking for, she created EXACTLY what we were hoping for but couldn't put into words. Now on to the day.... They were there setting up at 8am, seeing what they did in 6 hours was amazing! They transformed this little piece of the beach into our private sanctuary. My husband and I are still in awe of how they were able to capture exactly what we had imagined it to look and feel like. The ceremony was great, the special touches were unexpected surprises, the dj respected our requests, the photographer took amazing pics, the food was great (another wonderful surprise... As many are, when we got back to the hotel room we were so hungry and looked in the fridge and they had left 2 plates of food for us!!!) who does that?!?! Amazing! Lisa and Kathy are amazing! I really felt like they were there for us and our party and kept things running smoothly without disrupting the vibe. We recommend Sand Petal Weddings to anyone looking to have a destination wedding on the West coast of Florida! They really do take care of decor, food, photography, ceremony etc. for a set price. They were fair and at the end there were no hidden or excessive costs. Could not be happier!! And if you are daring enough to give up the reigns and be open to where their ideas take you, you may find, as I did, that the ladies of Sand Petal Weddings will give the the perfect setting to marry your sweetheart. Thank you to everyone at Sand Petal who made our wedding awesome!!! The Fultons
