I’d give more stars if I could! We planned a destination wedding and the entire staff at the Sandbar couldn’t have been better! Communication from the first to the last person was terrific. They all kept everything low stress and helped with all the planning along the way. The scenery is AMAZING at the sandbar. Wedding on the beach, and the reception in their pavilion just behind the sea oats. It was the wedding I imagined. I just wish it could’ve lasted longer. The food was delicious and I received so many compliments from family and friends.
