I had my wedding at Mystic Dunes and I can't say enough good things. The venue is beautiful, the food was amazing and everyone was so accommodating. But the person who made it truly exceptional is their event coordinator, Rick Martin. My mom, who helped me plan my wedding, was a catering manager for 10 years and I knew whoever was in charge of our venue and catering had to meet a high standard. From the first meeting Rick exceeded every expectation. He took care of everything and - most amazing of all - my mother was able to relax and actually enjoy herself, because she knew Rick would have it under control. Even when we had issues with getting the keys to our honeymoon suite, as soon as Rick saw us on the phone trying to sort it out, he told us to hang up and enjoy the party and that he would fix it. I had so many compliments from my guests about the wedding and I can't thank him enough. Thank you Rick and everyone at Mystic Dunes

Rick Martin is absolutely incredible. He made our entire wedding and did an amazing job coordinating before and during the day. He is not only great at what he does, but he is an even better person. He really made our vision come to life and made sure that everyone was enjoying the evening! Rick, we have gotten so many compliments on the wedding and were even told that it was the best Italian wedding they've been to in ages! We cannot thank you enough for all that you did and we hope you continue doing what you love and bringing the same joy you brought to us, to other couples in love.

I rated the above as 5 stars based upon working with Rick Martin (best man ever) and how the reception was! However, the room/villa booking was horrendous. We were given a comp night because it was our wedding night, but when checking in they didn't have that reservation, they had no idea about anything with my reservation, it took an hour to get anything accomplished on the night before my wedding and they charged us for the supposed comp night. The next day for check out my inlaws and several guests were locked out of their rooms while in the process of unloading their luggage. We had no prior notice that the rooms would be locked and everyone kept giving us the run around about how to get back into them. My father in law was furious and everyone who spoke to him wouldn't speak in English or acted like they didn't understand him. So, Rick and the clubhouse were amazing absolutely incredible, but the staff at the conceirge desk, staff in charge of stays, and villa management were horrendous.

The venue is gorgeous and Rick the Event planner is an absolute pleasure to work with and be around. He walked me through the entire process and worked with our every request. Planning a wedding is a very stressful time and he really listened to my vision and made it a reality allowing me to just arrive on my special day! The plated meals were also an absolute delight. All of our guest said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Thank you Rick and Mystic Dunes family for making this a beautiful and memorable experience!

2.6/5.0
Although my wedding day was my perfect happily ever after & I try not to focus on the bad, but I am going to be completely honest.
First of all, our wedding planner, Rick, had 3 OTHER weddings around the same time of my wedding(which I didn't know about until about a month prior) with the same last names. That being said, information between all of the weddings were all over the place with him. He mixed up certain dates such as payment due dates, final count for food, etc. So about a month before my wedding I had this realization that this guy was overwhelmed & had no idea what he was doing. Looking back, it really upsets me because when my husband met with Rick & toured the venue, I was totally convinced that he was a professional & would for sure make all of my dreams come true. As I said at the beginning, my wedding day was amazing, but I was expecting so much more. Certain small details that should've been perfect weren't, from pictures of family members on the memorial table that didn't make it out, to the reception tables being completely backwards from my plan and they ran out of the salmon entree, so they just served my guest chicken because "that's all they had left" when I had put in the final count for food the month prior, to avoid that issue. I had a beautiful wedding, but for the amount of money that my parents paid for my day to be "perfect" it wasn't...So just be cautious about who you let take control & plan your wedding.

Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club responded with the following comments:

My name is Rick and I am the Catering Sales Manager for all weddings and events at Mystic Dunes. I am a 12-year wedding industry veteran and love what I do, and work to exceed expectations of all wedding couples.

Katie is correct in that I was very busy with three other weddings, one of which shared her last name, and I did in fact reach out to her and her mother for final counts and final payment 1 week too early. I don't recall mixing up any other information in those final weeks of planning. Please note that no incorrect information was on the final BEO and therefore incorrectly executed.

The comment about my being overwhelmed might have been the case as it was a very busy time and I was without an assistant at the time. You will see in other reviews, however, that the experience of many other couples is the complete opposite of Katie's. I am truly sorry that Katie felt she didn't receive a positive experience and was left with such a negative impression.

Katie's memorial table was set up in the cocktail hour area on a 6' table next to the cheese display set with framed photos and other family items that were provided to me. In retrospect, I should have moved it all into the ballroom following cocktail hour as it seems that while her guests saw it, she didn't.

Regarding the floor plan, we set up the tables and chairs exactly as was given to me by Katie. It was in fact upside down from the version I created for her but otherwise correct, according to the plan. Had this been brought to my attention during the set up, I absolutely would have corrected it.

With plated dinner service, we prepare entrées based on the final count, plus 5% overage. Inevitably, some guests want to change entrees in the moment, which isn't always possible. I hadn't heard of any issues from guests or servers on this night, however.

I thank Katie (and Matt) for the feedback and what I am absolutely taking as constructive criticism, and learning from it.

Rick is very professional, he truly was my right hand man all night. Every wedding has hick ups and he was there fixing them before my guest even noticed. For example my bustle broke, Rick had a sewing my bustle mid reception. I had hand made my decorations and had a very specific way I wanted the reception and ceremony to look. He took my vision above and beyond and truly made the day beautiful. Rick is very gifted and it shows he takes great pride in what he does. 0-5 I gave my experience at 10!
