We had an intimate wedding, with a total of 20 guests, which included us. We didn't want to sacrifice our dream wedding on the beach and then having our reception indoors, but we also didn't want to settle on someplace "ordinary" because of our small guest list. The Emerald Shores was great for us because their sandy beaches were perfect, and their meeting room holds a max of like 40, so it was perfect for us because we didn't want to feel tiny in a huge room. Our ceremony on the beach was lovely. I did have complaints that it rained in the morning before our ceremony started, and the sand was less than desirable, but you can't do anything about the weather. That's where my first issue came in with the hotel because they didn't have a backup room for inclement weather conditions. Our ceremony was still beautiful though! Our reception was great, just the way we wanted it, casual yet elegant. We definitely liked the fact that we could bring an outside caterer because we didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on food. Our parents (or should I say our moms) were our caterers, and it was great! We had plenty of space for our dinner tables, our buffet line, and the floor for dancing! We also stayed there that night, and were happy with our room. Read less
