FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Sea Palms Resort on St. Simons Island, Georgia, is a premier wedding destination for couples who want to get married in the Golden Isles along Georgia's barrier island coast. Couples from all over the world choose Sea Palms Resort for the luxury rooms, guest amenities and event venues that have the capacity for 10 to 300 guests.
Sea Palms Resort has a unique private courtyard on its property that makes a lovely wedding spot. Or choose from a variety of banquet halls that will fit small, medium or large guests lists. The more popular venues are the following wedding celebration sites on the property.
Lakeside Gazebo. Get married with palms and oleanders framing a lovely white gazebo and a shimmering fountain. Up to 300 guests may witness you exchange your vows on an elevated platform under a sparkling chandelier.
Grand Ballroom. Very neutral styling is a feature of all of the banquet halls. Ivory walls with mirror "windows" and low-key carpeting look great no matter what color scheme you've picked. The graceful chandeliers are simple enough to go with romantic, rustic or minimalist wedding decor. This largest ballroom will fit up to 450 guests for a reception and 300 for a banquet. The space can be divided up into four smaller venues that each host 15 to 150.
Musgrove. This room has the same styling as the Grand Ballroom on a slightly smaller scale. Doors open out onto the parking lot and there is a patio just off the main room. The Musgrove will fit 50 to 225 guests and can be divided into two smaller venues.
Cypress. Another event space with neutral decor to arrange as you wish, the Cypress Room is a more intimate space for up to 100 guests reception-style or 40 for a seated banquet. This room also has an adjacent outdoor patio area and can be split into two rooms that will hold 12 to 50 attendees.
Green Room. This space has the palest green walls with lovely small bird prints, wall sconces and modern chandeliers. Fifteen to 20 guests will fit here.

Excellent Venue for a Wedding and ReceptionReviewed on 10/22/2013 Liz M
We recently had our rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception at Sea Palms and everything was WONDERFUL. We live in Jacksonville, so this was a little bit of a destination wedding. Allyson was awesome to work with and made everything very easy for me. I chose the "Everything but the Dress" Package and was very satisfied with everything. All the preferred vendors were great and easy to work with as well. We received soo many compliments on the FOOD at the reception! Our theme was Coastal, Southern Hospitality so we had a shrimp and grits station, pulled pork, fried chicken, corn bread, mac and cheese, etc. People said it was the best food at a wedding they have ever had! Usually that is the quickest thing for people to complain about. The venue has a lot of great options to choose from and the price is very reasonable. Lodging accommodations on the resort were great as well. There are multiple options for all price points. We opted for a condo/suite...which was great because we invited friends and family over for pizza one night and a little after gathering after the rehearsal...also gave the girls plenty of room to get ready :) Overall I cannot say enough great things about Allyson and Sea Palms. Myself and all of my guests loved the whole weekend. 5 STARS

Review for Sea Palms Golf and Tennis ResortReviewed on 5/10/2010 Carol Anne C
The staff were very attentive to mine and my guests needs. The staff even brought myself and my husband water while we were taking pictures outside. I felt very comfortable with all of the staff and with Wendy the Wedding Event Manager who was very informative and easy to work with during the planning process.
Mrs. Williams, Trey and Nikki Mullins appreciate Mrs. Barbara Martinez and the Sea Palms staff for their expertise and excellent service on December 3, 2016, and for making the Mullins' reception a joy that lasts forever.
Excellent Venue!Reviewed on 10/09/2015 Patti L
We were VERY pleased with Sea Palms and our main contact, Ashley Stone. Every request was taken care of promptly AND correctly and the reception went off without a hitch! I was very happy with the results and was pleased with the customer service from the very first meeting 9 months before the event. They had me at "hello!"
We had our reception at Sea Palms Resort and Conference center and it was such a great experience. From all the planning, tasting, visiting, setting up and the wedding day! Everything was great!! The food is AMAZINGGG!! All our guests continue to rave about how they have never had "wedding food" that was so good. They also did our wedding and groom's cake which turned out incredible. I simply found two pictures on Pinterest and showed the chefs the image and the end result looked identical to the picture I had shown! I was blown away!! They are very flexible and have plenty of recently updated rooms that are beautiful for a reception!!
FABULOUS LOCATIONReviewed on 9/14/2010 Hannah S
