Carlouel Yacht Club was the perfect wedding venue and I cannot say enough wonderful things! Kelley Williams is organized, easy to reach, and has an amazing vision of how to set up the reception space, cocktail hour, and ceremony space. My husband and I grew up in the Bay Area but traveled from Colorado for our wedding and Kelley and her staff at Carlouel made long distance planning an absolute dream! Our guests are still raving about the gorgeous views, beautiful reception space, and delicious food! I wish we could get married again so that we could have our wedding at Carlouel Yacht Club all over!

The Carlouel was an AMAZING wedding venue. Specifically, Kelly is FANTASTIC. You basically get a wedding planner free with the venue! We were coming from out of town and she made our wedding planning a breeze. The venue is beautiful and our wedding was better than we could have imagined!

OH MY GOSH I can't say enough about how absolutely perfect the Carlouel was for our wedding! Kelly Williams was amazing to work with (and I KNOW my wedding planner Kimberly Hensley agrees with me on this one)! I had a REALLY hard time picking a venue when I first started looking, but when I walked down the boardwalk and looked out over the private beach for the first time I choked up and just KNEW this was where we were supposed to get married. The beachside ceremony was absolutely breathtaking, the cocktail hour outside in the "birdcage" was a huge hit (from what I'm told) but the reception...WOW WOW WOW!!! We got a TON of compliments on our day after the fact but what we heard most was how amazing the venue and food both were!! And I couldn't agree more! The reception area has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the intercostal and just outside the area are fire pits that were a great gathering spot during band breaks! Truly every detail was like a fairytale!! If you're looking for a beautiful space that let's guests enjoy every detail of Florida without being stuck in a stuffy ballroom with no windows this is most definitely your place!

AMAZING!! I don't think you could find a better view, a private beach, a classy but beachy feel than Carlouel Yacht Club. It wasn't just the venue itself though it was the staff, especially Kelley Williams. Even though we didn't technically have a wedding coordinator, she definitely played the role! She was ALWAYS on top of everything. I was trying to plan the wedding remotely while in medical school, so I would start to get stressed out about the details. Kelley always calmed down because she always was 10 steps ahead of me. The day of when so smoothly! They even specifically catered to my vegan needs for dinner!

Carlouel was the perfect setting for our beach wedding. Everything was beautiful. Kelley, the manager, took the reigns and ensured everything was perfect. She worked with us for a year during our engagement making sure the food and set up was how we wanted it. She gave us lots of options to make sure our day was truly unique- something you won't get at the larger hotels. Carlouel will always be a special place in our hearts.

This venue is STUNNING. Kelley, the main coordinator, works events like nobody's business and really knows her stuff. I emailed her a million questions as well, and she would number them and answer back. Props to her! She was there my whole wedding day as the "day of" coordinator (included in the price), and made every little detail I wanted happen. She knows the vendors I used (Chocolate Pi for Cake, DeLeon Entertainment for music, 2Birds Events for floral/candelabras, and was able to communicate with them without going through me.
What a beautiful day...there were yachts parked out by the main hall and lit up the backdrop where the band played. The pools were lit as well as the birdcage (open area outside for cocktail hour), and the whole place was magical. I couldn't recommend this place more. We had our rehearsal dinner here with a calypso band, spend the wedding day in the girls room for hair and makeup (the best view to get ready!), and of course the main event which was down on the beach for the ceremony then moved up to the club for the reception. The one criticism I would give is there is no place for the guys to get ready, but after talking to my husband they didn't care to much for this anyway and ended up getting most of their photos outside.

Carlouel Yacht Club was the absolute perfect venue for our beach wedding. The beach is private, the space is beautiful, the food was great, and the Coordinator, Kelley, is excellent. We originally picked this venue because it was the only place on Clearwater with a private beach and the option for Indian food. The chef actually let us send him YouTube videos of dishes, and invited us to two tastings to make sure he got it right! In the end, my guests couldn't stop raving about the venue, the food, and how well things were organized. It's not cheap; there are service fees and a venue rental on top of food and drinks. And any decorations/lighting/equipment needs are up to you - there are no all-inclusive packages like the hotels. But for what you get, it's all worth it.

It was everything we imagined it would be. Perfect location. You have to be a member, or a member of the club has to sponsor you, so if you know someone there, take advantage of it. It's more private than a resort, and getting married at the North end of the beach, you do not have a lot of people in the background. The staff was wonderful to work with, the food was amazing, everything was great. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Carlouel every time.

Absolutely amazing! I have been a member of the club all of my life and they really stepped it up for our wedding. We had a blast working with the club to pick out the menu. They did everything we asked and more.
