House of Refuge Museum
Wow....I can't begin to write what an amazing wedding I had at The House of Refuge. Firstly, I will brag about Ericah. What an amazing, caring, positive, professional, responsive and just awesome person she is. Secondly, many people that attended the wedding asked, "Why did you select The House of Refuge?" Now that was the easy question of the night. 1~Natural setting 2~no high rises 3~not a busy beach that means that bystanders were not going to be in your pics 4~(One very important reason) for what The House of Refuge represented; a safe haven, shelter, protection, simplicity, light in the night, and sunny days after the storm. 5~ Where else can you have the bay on one side and the ocean on the other with little to no traffic? 6~The most important reason, when we were selecting a venue, we wanted our venue fee to go to a cause. The Hiltons, Hyatts, and Marriotts are already rich. So we are proud to say that our fee went to the Historical Society of Martin County to help preserve History. When selecting a venue think about who you are supporting and how the venue represents you.
We had our wedding ceremony here in October 2010. The location is absolutely beautiful. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and accommodating. The location is on the beach, but there is a brick paver area so your guests and your dress don't get filled with sand. There are gorgeous rocky outcroppings that make for the most beautiful pictures! They also opened the location for us to rehearse the night before the wedding. Thanks to Lisa and Jim for making this an amazing experience!
