Cabana Blue is the ideal setting for hosting the most unique and spectacular events along the Emerald Coast. With a prime location, conveniently situated between Sandestin and Seaside, the sparkling blue waters and glimmering white sand beaches of its bayfront location serves as an unforgettable backdrop for a perfect wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or other special occasion.

Accomodating up to 250 guests, you have several distinct areas within Cabana Blue to utilize for your event. Inspired by an "Old Florida meets Deco Cuba" feel, the spacious Havana Room has an elegant yet tropical design. With its chic bamboo covered walls and capiz lighting, this area is easily transformed from formal to the most casual. Just outside of the Cabana Room is our expansive Bay Deck with grand views of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Complete with its own bar and canopied with twinkling lights, the Bay Deck is a magical place for dinner and dancing. Steps away from the deck, our white sand beach with tropical palm trees offers a pretty setting for a wedding cermony or for dining with your toes in the sand. And last, but not least, is our secluded and romantic deck positioned under a canopy of majestic oaks.

Cabana Blue specializes in coordinating and hosting events from the grandest to the most intimate and everything in between. As a full service event venue, we provide all of the services necessary for carrying out the many details that make your special event unique to you. By offering on site an event coordinator, a floral/event designer, and a caterer, the planning of your event becomes streamlined and stressfree. With a particular expertise in assisting destination brides, we pride ourselves on our ability to work long distance to help plan a truly memorable occasion. Read less

I cannot say enough great things about Cabana Blue. I had my wedding and reception there and it was absolutely amazing. Their staff (especially Laura) is excellent and always willing to help in ANY way they can. I was so happy and impressed with how well my wedding and reception turned out. Laura made sure that we had everything we needed and was so helpful throughout the night. The food was great and all of my guests had a wonderful time. The atmosphere and view is breathtaking... I don't have a single regret about my wedding!

I had my wedding at cabana blue and it was amazing! Just the venue we had in mind. We got married in the garden area and it was breathtaking. We're still hearing from our guests who say it was one of the best weddings they've been to and a huge reason they're saying that is because of the venue! It's gorgeous and break taking yet its laid back and comfortable.

Alexa and Laura fielded ALL of my questions and helped me out with everything. There were a few things we wanted to do that we couldn't do at the venue (sparklers, Chinese lanterns - for the exit) but its understandable why we couldn't do it. And the live band has to stop at 10pm because they are outside but you're going to find that at most outdoor venues in the area (noise ordinance). But I think you can go later at Bentleys (sister property across the street) because the band will be inside.
Big positives:
You can bring your own alcohol in
Band can be outside under patio
The dock on the bay is gorgeous and everyone loved it.
The couches on the beach/patio were a big hit
Food/appetizers are through the venue and everyone loved those!

After looking at 10 venues in the area, we narrowed it down between Bentley's and cabana blue. Both amazing venues!!! I highly recommend either!

Beautiful venue site. The trees, moss, decks, lights and pier are all amazing. LOVED our wedding here....The area is just stunning. Laura did a great job pulling our day together and gave enough direction to be a help instead of overbearing. Thank you for making our special day so wonderful Cabana blue.

Cabana Blue was the perfect venue for our wedding! It is beautiful in itself and our guests absolutely loved it! The food, venue, and our coordinator Laura were nothing but great. All the staff there were very professional and prompt with all my communications (since this was a long distance wedding for us). Best wedding venue in the area hands down!

My daughter decided early on that she wanted a beach wedding, so she did an Internet search and came up with Cabana Blue. Since we live about 300 miles from Santa Rosa Beach I was reluctant to sign on until we were able to see it in person. After she and her fiance made a visit she was hooked, didn't even want to check out any other venues, even though CB is bayside rather than on the beach as she had originally planned. I was uneasy about planning a wedding using mainly emails and phone calls but Laura and the rest of the staff made it so easy. We only made one trip down to choose the food, cake, etc., as well as meet with outside vendors. Since we weren't familiar with the area we used vendors they recommended and were pleased with the choices, especially the florist, photographer and hairstylist. In between visits we exchanged plenty of emails and phone calls but they were always prompt (and patient!) in returning them.The wedding itself was beautiful, it was a gorgeous setting and despite an unusually cold weekend for March everyone had a great time. The food was awesome, we had lots of compliments on it, plus I got to actually enjoy it because Laura reminded me to eat! The baker did a great job with the cake also. All in all it was an unique experience that fit my daughter's personality so perfectly. Anyone looking for a destination wedding venue should check it out!

Cabana Blue was absolutely amazing!! The setting is placed right on the bay, and it was perfect for a sunset ceremony. Laura Ekstrom was our wedding coordinator and she made sure everything went perfectly. She made sure we didn't stress, specifically me, and just let us enjoy all of the festivities of our big day! She coordinated with our florist who set up our decor and ceremony settings. It was beautiful. Sugar lilly sweetshop, who is the in house bakery, made the most delicious and beautiful cupcakes! She was open to some new ideas, and it turned out so yummy! The catering is also in house, and we had the most amazing southern bbq chicken, bourban baked beans, and 3 potatoe salad. My guests are still raving about how beautiful Cabana Blue was, and how much they loved the food. Laura, and the staff always responded to me in a timely manner, and let us know when they weren't going to be available. I would highly recommend this place or bentley's on the bay, their other venue, right across the street. Thanks again Laura!!

Cabana Blue is AMAZING! Our wedding was perfect in every way. The venue is the best in Florida; you get the beach aspect as well as the casual and elegant garden. The staff is beyond fabulous and I worried about every detail because I’m type A and a control freak but I didn’t need to. They thought of everything. I was an out of town bride and the wedding couldn’t have gone any better, truly the best in the area. If you want a beach, laid back, beautiful location – this is your place.
My flower girl even tee tee’d on Laura and she was a trooper!

We had our June wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful!! Alexa and Laura were very helpful and informative. The venue was everything we could have imagined. It was an indoor/outdoor, which was perfect for a summer wedding and we got to choose how we wanted everything arranged. The venue also did catering, the cake, bartenders, and the tables and chairs, which was really convenient. The pictures turned out beautifully!!
