Karen and Wayne's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was great! Getting married in Gulf Shores was really fun and casual. April is a great time of the year in Gulf Shores as the weather was perfect, just be sure to plan around the Spring Breakers. Oh, and Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests and plan things out since we did this ourselves without a local Wedding Coordinator.

go down Hwy 58 till it deadends into Hwy 182 and turn left (east). go down about 2.1 miles to State Park Road 2 and there is a very small parking area on the left and a boardwalk on the right. beautiful beach for wedding without any of the spring break crowd

this worked PERFECTLY for us but it is not fancy and you cannot decorate much. but it is spacious and has a great kitchen and room for a dance floor. for our 60 people, and our casual cookout it was absolutely perfect.
