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!

The venue also did catering, the cake, bartenders, and the tables and chairs, which was really convenient. The pictures turned out beautifully!!

Thanks to this absolutely gorgeous venue and it's wonderful staff, my wedding was completely perfect. We only had our reception there, as the ceremony was in a church, and I wouldn't change a thing. Everything ran so smoothly, and I honestly didn't have to worry about anything on my big day. The convenience of having the caterer and baker inhouse was extremely helpful as well, especially since I am an out-of-town bride. From our private moment with appetizers and cocktails before our entrance into the party until our grand exit, everything about our reception and Cabana Blue was magical and perfect. You will not regret booking this venue!

My wedding was at Cabana Blue and it was the most magical night of our lives!! Iris was our coordinator (through Cabana Blue) and she did an amazing job and was great to work with... everything went so smooth! And the caterer (Melinda) was amazing ... the food was unbelievable and she really went the extra step too! And the venue itself is breath-taking. It would be great if the reception could be 1/2 hour - hour longer, but other than that it was perfect!!

Absolutely LOVED having our wedding & reception at Cabana Blue. Laura was amazing and so helpful with the entire planning process! Our guests loved our venue. It did rain on our wedding day & we had to make some changes, but the event still turned out well despite the weather. The only thing I would suggest differently is maybe making the rental an hour longer. 4 1/2 hours seemed sort of rushed to do the 'normal' wedding activities - toasts, cake cutting, garter, bouquet, etc. Most of our guests totally missed the cake cutting because they had no idea it was happening. As a whole, loved Cabana Blue & Laura so much & would suggest them to anyone and everyone planning a wedding right now!

Cabana Blue gave us the perfect wedding day. The venue looked perfect, and everyone we worked leading up to the wedding, and the day of, was extremely helpful. We loved the convenience of having the caterer, baker and coordinator all in one place. We've received so many compliments on how good the food and cake was as well as how beautiful the venue itself looked. Our coordinator was extremely helpful and make the day transition seamlessly. As a local couple, we found Cabana Blue to be a refreshing antidote to the beach wedding. Very classy. Very highly recommend!

I was truly blown away at the venue and the staff at Cabana Blue. They work extremely hard to ensure a perfect day/night! I could not be happier with my choice for this unique spot on the bay and had so many compliments from our wedding guests. The catering was absolutly wonderful as well, they have great menu selections. I was hesitant due to the fact I had not seen the venue before hand due to lack of time, but was 100% impressed. Pictures do not do this venue justice!

we had our wedding at cabana blue. it was the most gorgeous/ best day of our life. Laura was willing to work with us and was always readily available. Guests commented on how great the food and atmosphere was and said best wedding ever! The scenery was gorgeous and picture perfect. We had a great time working with the staff and they gave exceptional service. we gave the value of cost a 3 because renting the venue is a flat rate and includes nothing for that day except the venue. We felt that something should have been included like tables or chairs or something. Especially since we had such a large guest list attending the wedding, it was very costly for us to rent all the tables, chairs and linens. All in all, great place and would definitely recommend it! Our wedding day was hands down best day of our life!

we had our wedding at cabana blue. it was the most gorgeous/ best day of our life. Laura was willing to work with us and was always readily available. Guests commented on how great the food and atmosphere was and said best wedding ever! The scenery was gorgeous and picture perfect.

My daughter and her husband chose Cabana Blue as the venue for their wedding as it was the perfect combination of "beach" and nature. The garden where the ceremony was held was the perfect location with the bay as the backdrop - it was breathtaking. Laura was an absolute gem - she was easy to work with, available whenever I had questions, always quick with responses and a true professional. On the day of the wedding she was there when she was needed, and always standing by to do what she could. She coordinated the ceremony so that everything flowed perfectly. The caterer that they work with was excellent - the food was fantastic and the bar-staff they hired were great too. All-in-all it was a fantastic experience - the best wedding ever - perfect weather helped too so we didnt have to go to our rain plan (but we did have one). I would highly recommend Cabana Blue and Bentley's on the Bay (and I already have). We received nothing but rave reviews from all our wedding guests! Thanks.

I was married at Cabana Blue on 4/3/11, we had our ceremony in the garden area behind the building and the reception on the large outdoor porch.

The entire evening was perfect, in large part to the knowledgeable staff at Cabana, they offered assistance and guidance when needed but were also able to step back and let me plan my wedding without too many restrictions or rules. Both Alexa and Laura were very patient and willing to work with me over the phone or email because I live in Tampa and was only able to make 2 trips up prior to the wedding. The entire staff of Cabana Blue was helpful and calm, they never made me feel pressured or rushed, they never made me feel stress over the decision making process. I know that this isn't always the case with wedding coordinators/venues, I feel especially lucky to have found them and Cabana Blue. Iris was the staff member at the wedding to make sure everything went off smoothly and she was wonderful to work with as well, very accommodating and especially helpful when I needed someone to usher the bridal party in or out of a space, or even find my groom so we could take pictures!

All in all it was an amazing experience from beginning to end, the weather was perfect, there were no "day of disasters" and the pictures I have are beautiful. The ONLY reason I did not give the venue a 5 star rating for Value is because this was my splurge - I did go somewhat over the budget I had allotted for the venue, but the space was exactly what I had in mind. For anyone planning a wedding I would recommend this property or the sister property, Bentley's on the Bay. The staff is excellent, they have a beautiful location that can be set up in many different ways and they have tables/chairs/decorations of their own, you don't have tho find a 3rd party rental company which saves hassle and stress. This is an amazing venue!
