Sharon, the event planner for Shephard's, was truly a wonderful help for our wedding reception. She is truly super professional and capable and I can easily say that without her help, our reception would not have been the success it was.

We used Shephard's for both our ceremony and reception site, and were so absolutely pleased in both areas. You get married right out there on the beach, yes it's a small beach, but you don't have beachgoers in the background of your photos etc. They have an arch you can use or a larger one that my mom was able to decorate however she wanted, which I would suggest, she just used silk flowers and vines, toulle, etc. We also got some awesome pictures out on the rocks at the shore and with the ocean in the background of our vows, etc. So pretty. They stop the band music from the bar doing your service. Granted you wouldn't want an hour long service there, but it's great for relatively short services. Sharyn is the wedding coordinator and is fabulous, very responsive and helpful, we asked her opinion on many things, she even recommended me a great and affordable place to get my nails done down the street the day before the wedding! You would go through her to plan your wedding, linens etc (yes, linens are included too! and tip is already in the price per person) The food was awesome, seriously, we got so many compliments, like we cooked it, ha! A. There was tons of food, buffet style, we had three choices for main course (can be beef, pork, fish, or chicken, great, not boring salad and bread, pasta bar with many choices, couple side items. B. It was all delicious C. You also get the champagne included (one glass) for everyone which I think is pretty standard. We also got appetizers separately which were also delicious, scallops, bruschetta, shrimp. We really liked that it wasn't a set menu, you chose everything individually unlike many other fancy, shmancy places. We had the reception in The Wave, only downfall is you have to be done with the room by 9:30 however everyone gets bands and you can come back in The wave or go to the tiki bar, which we would recommend, fun times! They just redid all the walls booths, etc in The Wave and its much prettier and wedding-friendly, neat white walls and booths, several tv's which we played a slideshow on and everyone could see at their seat plus theres a big screen tv to show it on. We used their DJ Mike, but you don't have to, however we recommend him highly as well, very fun, young, many selections, and he can use the cool lighting system since he regularily works at The Wave, otherwise your Dj would not be able to use the lighting equipment. We were so happy with our experience at Shephard's more affordable than many other places, worth the $ too! Oh yeah there's no separate "room rental fee" or anything like many other places charge you $2000 just for the room, not at shephards!

Just wanted to add after reading the other person's review, yes you would want to stay in the tower, because poolside rooms etc will be noisy, and older guests would probably not want to stay there at all, it is honestly more of a party place, so we blocked off rooms both at shephards in the tower and at the nextdoor hotel which is quieter for those who prefer that, problem solved. It being a party place makes it so fun w/ the tiki bar before and after right there for your guests, and the ceremony and reception are very elegant and again we were very pleased! we stayed in the sunset suite for honeymooners at shephards and got a super great discount on it and loved it, we didnt have any problems with staff, we had a problem with the jacuzzi and got help immediately, didnt hear anything bad about the staff or plumbing, etc, except a bartender at the tiki bar, which had nothing to do w/ the wedding and was a lil bit our fault actually. very much recommended!

oved everything about Shepards from the reception venue (wave room) to the food. Sharon, our coordinator, was excellent. She was great at keeping us updated and returning phone calls. The wave room is a really popular venue and books up really quick on Saturday. We had to settle with a Friday wedding at a slightly discounted rate. One thing I didn't like was the banana boats and jet skis in our photos. Overall great venue.

Our renewal was in the Wave Room. Beautiful room with an imazing view at sunset. Greg's was our service manager and he was outstanding. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. We felt like super stars. Our guest were very empressed with the food, it was definately 5 stars and more.

Our cordinator was Sharyn she was great!

Considering there were a lot of bad reviews for this place, I was very nervous about having my wedding here. I must say, it was very convenient for all of my out of town guest. Our Honeymoon Sweet was perfect- exactly what I wanted. We had our bachelor-bachelorette party in our room a few nights before the wedding. It was spacious enough to fit us and still keep us close without smothering. We had family in the room directly below, which was very convenient as well. I'm not going to lie, we did our share of partying, but we had layed back time as well. Their was no way we could entertain 60 people ourselves, so this place really helped having so much to do there. Don't get me wrong, we came across quit a few problems, but between Sharyn (the lady that did it all), Lindz (my maid of honor), and myself, it was a dream come true. Everyone told us it was one of the best wedding's they have ever gone to.

Sherpherd's was a very busy place and great party atmosphere. The area was rented was okay, but was too hot outside for a reception. The service was great and the employees were wonderful, but we should have booked somewhere indoors.
