I live close by to Casa Marina and I had their amazing brunch many times before. When I was looking for venues for my wedding, I kept coming back to Casa Marina. I wanted a beach wedding and it is right on the beach. I already knew the food was phenomenal. All I had to do was convince my fiancé that this is what I wanted. At the time he was on deployment with the Navy. I ended up putting my deposit down in March 2013 for my May 24, 2014 wedding. My advice is to book early because the prime dates are going to fill up fast. Becky is amazing and she worked with me every step of the way and answered any of my questions. I

I had my bridal shower there the week before my wedding. Sterling and Becky made sure that everything was perfect for that day. All my guests raved about the Buffett and the drinks. The location of our table was exactly what I wanted. We had an amazing time!

My wedding day was perfect. I had my ceremony on Saturday May 24 at 10am with the reception to follow. Becky, Sterling, and all the staff worked with my wedding planner, Christina Kopecki with Christina Kreations to make my day perfect. It was exactly what I envisioned. It was my perfect intimate beach wedding with my closest friends and family in attendance. Even my groom was impressed with everything. The first time he was at the Casa Marina was at the wedding rehearsal. Thank you Casa Marina for everything!!

My now husband and I were amazed at how accommodating the Casa Marina staff was in regards to helping us make our wedding vision a true reality. The location allowed for the beach wedding scene without having to have feet in sand (although that is an option!). We were so incredibly happy and blessed to have such an amazing team help make our wedding day even better than our dreams!

I might be biased, but I had the perfect wedding day every girl dreams of. It rained all day and the day before, which was very unfortunate. They set up the tent in the courtyard and it saved the day. Becky was there for me every step of planning. The location was perfect, rain and all! Sterling was awesome during the reception and kept everything on time! I wouldn't change it for the world!!

Beautiful!! You can't go wrong with the Casa marina!! We held our wedding ceremony and reception here. Held at 9:30am, we has a brunch reception. Absolutely breathtaking!! From day one, Becky and Sterling were caring, honest, and open minded. My fiancé didn't meet either of them until the rehearsal (he had been deployed to Afghanistan). The rehearsal and ceremony were flawless, classy, and the epitome of a true wedding venue. There has been a wedding the night before and one to follow mine, but you wouldn't have known. The staff was polite, professional and made that day ours. They helped bring our wedding to life!

Rebecca (coordinator) was just a pleasure to work with. She was able to tolerate my extremely annoying questions as I was a huge "planner". I must have emailed her a million times. She always responded and answered my questions. She made the wedding flow amazingly and everything was just perfect.

The venue was beautiful and provided the perfect mix of beach but not sand (my dress was not going in the sand haha). The allow you quite a bit of flexibility to decorate and make your vision come to life. I also loved that my out of town guests could stay there!! The upstairs bar provided a fabulous after party also. My only wish was a more formal "bridal" room as I has way too many gals getting their hair and makeup done at the same time. The hotel rooms are historic (small) so that was a little crammed for my gals. Of course it was my choice to get us all ready there vs salon (part of my paranoia of not driving day of wedding). If they had a "bridal" room it would be perfect!!!
Thanks for everything!!

Oh my gosh...we had our dream wedding at Casa Marina. This place is to die for!!! Becky was so helpful with everything...I felt like we had our own personal wedding planner. She is really busy which makes it had to get in touch with her right away, but the girl knows what she is doing and the place was so beautiful and the food was yummy! Everyone told me that this was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. I felt like I was in a fairytale! Thank you Becky and Casa Marina for making my special day more than special!

If you are even thinking about getting married at Casa Marina, think no longer. We looked at many places in the Jax beaches area, and my husband and I are so happy that this is where we ended up. We live in San Francisco and Becky couldn't have made it any easier for us to plan the wedding from across the country. She was extremely responsive both via email and phone calls. When we met with her in person she helped to fill in all the missing details that we hadn't thought about yet. I really can't say enough positive things about how incredibly helpful, professional, and patient Becky was throughout the process.

The venue was absolutely perfect. We were able to add our own pizzaz to the decorations outdoors and they were very flexible in allowing us to either add or take out items. The setting is beautiful.

I highly recommend Casa Marina for the ceremony and reception. In hindsight, I can't believe that we even looked elsewhere.

Casa marina was an excellent location for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day. Rebekah, Sarah, and Sterling helped us through the whole process, and both events went down like a well orchestrated concert - they literally did not miss a beat. The food and service were excellent, the staff was very helpful and professional, and of course the venue location and historic atmosphere speak for themselves.

My husband and I could not have been happier with our wedding at Casa Marina. Everything was just perfect. Becky was exceptional and always available to answer the neverending list of questions. Sterling, our maitre d, was an absolute blessing to have to help guide us through the evening. Our wedding feast was AMAZING! We had HUGE portions of prime rib and chicken marsala with all the trimmings and fantastic service. Casa Marina was everything we could have hoped for and we would choose it all over again if we could!

My husband and I could not be any happier that we chose Casa Marina as our venue for our wedding ceremony (courtyard) and reception. Yes the prices were a bit high, but the food was incredible, the service was incredible. It was worth every penny we paid. You do not book a venue this great on the beach and not expect it to be a bit expensive. If we had to plan a wedding all over again, we would go straight back to Casa. Becky was helpful (she is a coordinator, not a wedding planner) and Sterling was equally wonderful during our reception. Our friends and family had a great time, and that was our goal. We were incredibly pleased. This location also gave us some terrific pictures and memories :)

We can't say enough great things about the Casa Marina. They are dedicated to and passionate about making your wedding reception perfect and the day you imagine it to be. Bev Davoli is flexible and acommodating and has a keen understanding of the bridal business. The banquet staff at the CM are second to none in professionalism and attention to detail. They exceeded every one of our expectations. We couldn't be happier.

Our wedding day was perfect.... thanks to the staff at Casa Marina. Our wedding consultant was very professional and helpful and I couldn't have done it without her. While we were planning our wedding we were introduced to the the consultant that is there now and even though we didn't have her as our main consultant, she was very involved and equally as professional. The venue speaks for itself. She is an historical landmark on the beach, what more could you ask for. The food and service were excelent and very reasonable. My dad (impossible to please) raved about the food. My niece had gotten married a few months prior and spent a small fortune at another foo foo beach venue. We did not, and had an amazing wedding. The staff asked our budget and offered ways for us to stay in it. The only snafu we had was a tray of chapagne was spilled on my father-in-law. The staff immediately went and found a shirt for him to put on and keep. I don't know where or whom it came from, but it saved the day and looked nice in pictures as well. My bridesmaids and I stayed at the hotel the night before the ceremony to get ready and had a late checkout after the reception. The staff was very helpful and Sterling took care of everything for us. I would definitely recommend the Casa Marina

Eric and I have the best experience at the Casa Marina. We initially met Beverly six months before the wedding, and then flew back home to California. Throughout the planning process, Beverly and her assistant, responded to my telephone calls and emails in a timely fashion.

The day of the wedding was the best experience every. We are very happy to have chosen the Casa Marina for our ceremony and reception. The food and service were amazing. Our guests had the best time! And, I do have to mention that the venue itself photographs beautifully.

As for the cost, I believe that it was reasonable, and definitely worth the cost. Especially given the fact that the food was really great.

My husband and I have always loved the Casa Marina Hotel & Restaurant. We had been searching for a place to be married and one night we were dining at the Casa Marina Restaurant and there happen to be a wedding taking place the same evening and it was just absolutely beautiful and so we decided we would be married at the same location. However, due to our wedding being a lot smaller (20 to 30 people) we were unable to reserve the patio for our ceremony. Although, we weren't able to use the patio, the management still accommodated us by allowing us to reserve the side banquet room for our mini reception. This actually worked out better for us due to budget constraints and we still managed to have the ceremony on the beach in back of Casa Marina Hotel & Restaurant and then immediately following after have a Sunday brunch as our reception in the private room they provided. It was just right and the staff was very professional and very accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a better reception. In addition we also stayed at the hotel the night before and was able to get ready for our big day. It was perfect! We will definitely recommend Casa Marina Hotel & Restaurant to others.

Oh my goodness, I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue! My husband and I were married here on a Sunday and the service we received along with our families and guests was absolutely wonderful! Beki, Sterling, Casey, Mary & everyone else treated all of us with such kindness and attentiveness. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. I just can't say enough good things. My only hang up was just that I wish we had been able to get into the bridal suite earlier -- but we knew in advance when we would get in, so it's not like it was sprung on us last minute. I just wish it had been earlier. A very minor complaint. I would absolutely recommend this venue again and again!

I have been going to Casa Marina for Sunday brunch for the last few years, so I was already familiar with the high quality of the food & service. Casa Marina did not let me down for my wedding day! Everyone raved about the food; even some of my difficult-to-please guests. The historic beauty and charm shines through in the pictures. The courtyard is romantic and perfect for the ceremony. During the planning process, my coordinator switched from Bev to Becky. The transition was smooth and Becky was on top of everything! Sterling also did not disappoint in helping us stay on-time and guide us through the key points of the reception. The tables & seating were all set up exactly as requested. Thank you, Casa Marina crew!

My wedding was on the 1st of January and it was just beautiful! Bev Davoli worked with me so that it was absolutely gorgeous, and lucky me they still had their holiday decorations up which where a teal color and had peacock feathers in them. The whole thing was just stunning! I am so happy with how it all turned out, and such a short period of time too (Started planning in late Oct/ early Nov!!). Would recommend them to anyone!

Becky was great - quick to respond and worked with me living in Ohio and planning a wedding in Florida. The food was great as well. My only complaint is that a rehearsal was allowed to go on during our pictures before the ceremony. We got married on a Friday and the couple getting married on Saturday was allowed to run through their rehearsal while we were taking pictures. I feel that we paid to have this area just as they did for the next day and didn't think it was appropriate to have them there at that time.

The Casa Marina hotel and restaurant was a great place for our reception. We got married around the corner at BUMC's (Beaches United Methodist Church) small chapel in the back. Anyway, CM was gorgeous. We got married in April and the weather was beautiful. CM was very professional. Both CM and BUMC had coordinators to help with all the logistics. CM is directly on the beach so it made for great pictures. The only real drawback to CM is the price. Get ready to drop a lot of money for this place. I still gave them 4 stars on value because although you get what your money pays for, I've seen more fancy places for the same price, they just happen to be on the beach and charge whatever they want. But I guess that's the name of the business when it comes to weddings.

I feel in love with this venue from the moment we walked in. It is elegant, beautiful, and has a vintage touch. We were looking to get married on the beach at sunset and we accomplished just that. Rebekah is great and helped us stay on schedule throughout the ceremony and helped us set up a timeline of events to be following throughout the evening. Sterling was there throughout the entire reception if we needed anything. Everyone was very friendly and professional throughout the entire process. If I had to do it all over again, I would not change one thing about my selection of the venue!!!

The coordinator at Casa Marina is fantastic all through the planning stages. It is once the wedding is actually taking place where it all falls apart. The fact that I had to point out that there was gum on the arms of the guest chairs did not sit well. The food service was sloppy and disorganized. I provided color coding as requested and the servers still had trouble getting the correct meals where they belonged. Although - once served the food was delicious.

The setting is beautiful. It is a venue better used by a small( under 100 guest) wedding . Also - it is better for a guest list made up of non dancers.

I would never recommended this venue to anyone. It was raining during my wedding and they venue told the dj not to even worry about setting up because my wedding would be over by 8 and we had the venue till 10 and at 9:50 they turned all of the lights on and kicked everyone out. Also they gave me less than an hour to decorate the whole wedding myself, I was under the impression they decorated but I found out around 4 that wasn't the case, so I was outside with my bridesmaids in the rain unloading cars and decorating. Plus my worst fear was confirmed and there were not enough places to sit, that was after people who RSVPed didn't come. But at the end of the day we were married and off to our honeymoon.
