Everyone thought the cake was DELICIOUS! We had three tiers with three different flavors and a white butter cream frosting. Everyone's favorite flavor was the chocolate with chocolate mousse filling! YUM! Plus, it was WAY less expensive than cakes in Corpus Christi.
We had a seafood buffett for 135 people, and it was PERFECT! The price was reasonable, and the food was super yummy! Especially the crab cakes!
We ABSOLUTELY loved our wedding photos! Our photographer is from Austin, but he drove down to Port Aransas for the weekend with us, and photographed the whole weekend, plus he did a special photo shoot for us on the beach. It's worth the price to have him drive down from Austin. He's AMAZING!
My flowers were PERFECT and exactly what I wanted. It was way less expensive than any other florist I found in Corpus Christi and Rockport (there were none in Port Aransas). We ordered all the flowers I wanted including a floating pool arrangement, they were beautiful, and it was all UNDER budget. You can't get better than that! :)
Frank met with us several times before the wedding, to make sure he had all the music we wanted played. He MC'd the entire event, which was awesome, and set up all the sound equipment for the ceremony and the reception. He's from Austin, so we had to pay him a bit more to cover the cost of his travel and accommodations in Port Aransas, but it was worth it!
They're from Austin, but it was SO worth it to pay them a little extra to cover the cost of accommodations to have them drive down to Port Aransas for our wedding. They played guitar and violin during the ceremony, and the band played for the cocktail hour and part of dinner before the DJ started up. They were AWESOME!
Josh did a great job. He came to our hotel room and did hair and makeup for me, four bridesmaids, and my mom! It was so much fun to hangout together in the condo where we could relax, and he definitely knows how to make your hair hold up in the wind, heat, and humidity! My hair still looked great for photos on the beach the next morning!
The BBQ was amazing! The briskett was tender and juicy, and they delivered it to the Beachgate Condos conference room for our rehearsal dinner Friday night. It was perfect! Call and ask for Rusty, he's great!
LOVED it! It was perfect! I have so many great memories of the ceremony and reception at Island Moorings. It was so convenient to have it all in one place, and there was PLENTY of parking unlike any of the hotels or having it on the beach.
Some of our guests had complaints about their rooms (stains on sheets, no pillow cases, etc.). But the room we stayed in was perfect, and it was a great price for being right on the beach! Also, what was nice about Beachgate, was that if we booked 8 rooms (which we did), we got to use the Conference Room free Friday night for our Rehearsal dinner! So, that was awesome and for that, I still recommend Beachgate. Also, it's right next to the Beach Lodge bar and restaurant which is a really cool joint.
We stayed here one night along with many of our guests and family. Everybody enjoyed their stay. The adults only hot tub is AWESOME!
Our guests who stayed here said the accomodations were perfect and it was right across the street from Island Moorings, where are ceremony and reception were held.
This was not an official wedding location, but we recommended that our guests check it out because it was next door to the hotel (Beachgate) where many of them were staying.
