Descriptions of venues and beautiful photography can go a long way toward deciding whether Amelia Island Plantation is the right venue for your wedding. But they aren’t the whole story. We’ve included testimonials from just a few wedding parties who decided to spend the biggest day of their lives with us
Lacy & Michael Hastie (Bride & Groom)
Let me start by saying, throughout our engagement and wedding planning, we heard, “Remember, something usually goes wrong at the wedding/reception. Just remember it is out of your control and not to stress or worry about it. In the grand scheme, it's no big deal.” Well, I have to say, nothing went wrong. Everything was perfect. The resort made everything so easy for Michael and me and we couldn't have been more grateful for that. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but you were able to always put our minds at ease, knowing that you would take care of things. And you did – what a wonderful wedding! People are still raving about how beautiful it was. Also, I have heard more compliments on the food! You all obviously take a lot of pride in your jobs and that definitely came across in the service we received. I would also like to mention a doorman at the hotel. He was working Friday (June 24th) and Saturday (June 25th) night during our stay. I believe his name is Tom. He was the nicest person. It was so great to encounter someone that genuinely nice when you are headed to your room for the night – another example of the wonderful service and experience of the whole weekend. Amelia Island has always been special to me, but now it holds an even more special place in my heart and what great memories we continue to make. We look forward to our next trip back to the Plantation. Again, thank you for all you did to make our day special.
Jana Williams (Mother of the Bride)
As the mother of the bride there are so many things to be done and you have so many emotions to deal with that you just want someone to take care of every little detail for you. At Amelia Island Plantation that is exactly what they did. Our wedding coordinator was the ultimate professional as she planned my daughter's reception right down to the smallest detail. She was also very sweet and comforting and made us feel that we were the only client she was working with. The event was absolutely perfect from beginning to end.
Emily Williams (Bride)
As a young girl, I dreamed of what my wedding day would be like. However, I never dreamed about the planning of the wedding itself. Thankfully, with the help of the staff at Amelia Island Plantation, I didn't have to worry about the planning process. Our wedding coordinator was always available to assist me, answering emails, phone calls and figuring out every detail of the wedding reception. She was also personable, caring and truly wanted me to have the wedding of my dreams. Thanks to the resort's team I didn't have the wedding that I had always dreamed of, but one that I couldn't have even imagined. It was breathtakingly beautiful and the absolute sweetest day of my life. It was a day that we (and our families) will cherish forever.
