Bands/Live Entertainment

Fantastic stage presence and repertoire. We wanted the best live entertainment for our wedding reception and this group of professionals did not disappoint. Our guests danced all night long and couldn't say enough about the performance and energy of the band.

Well worth the booking!

Caterers

This company catered our rehearsal dinner cruise aboard a chartered boat from Breakaway Cruises. The food was incredible and they prepared it under difficult conditions aboard the boat. It was very windy and the water was rough, but the staff was very professional and still managed to turn out delicious dishes for our guests. They have many menu options to choose from when planning your event. I don't think they have a website, but their phone number is (956) 546-5788. They are based in Brownsville, TX.

Reception Sites

We reserved the back event space and outdoor area for our wedding reception. Management was very flexible in allowing us to transform the space and make changes to suit our needs. This is one of the few nice spaces along the bay that we could find in the Padre area.

The standard restaurant menu is pretty good, but the chef worked with us to develop a custom menu. They made slight unauthorized last minute changes without notifying us, but it wasn't anything terrible. Just unprofessional for a wedding. Overall, the food was delicious.

The open bar plan we went with was reasonable as well, but ask to not have "tip jars" if you don't want them out. This was not discussed with us and we would have preferred to settle gratuity ourselves.

Basically, just make sure to nail down the little details before the event with management to make sure you get what you'd like.

Ceremony Sites

A lovely non-denominational Christian chapel on South Padre. Chaplain Denham went out of his way to make sure our ceremony was what we wanted. He adjusted as needed to include the elements important to us and our families.

The grounds are quite nice and welcoming. The sanctuary is simple, but attractive, with large windows overlooking lush greenery. Unfortunately, there is not a water view from the grounds or sanctuary (bay or ocean), but otherwise it is a charming and holy place for an island ceremony.
