Our wedding planner coordinator at Shephard's was Sharyn and she was awesome! Sharyn was a pleasure to work with and very professional. The venue turned out beautiful and it was nice because all our family could stay right on site. I got many compliments about how amazing the weekend was. My family even thinks we should have a reunion there every year now. My only complaint is with the valet service, the spilled an entire pot of food in my front seat and then told me it was my fault for not telling them it was there. Really, it's sitting right next to you and why are you driving my car so fast that it toppled over. Needless to say I'm still trying to get the stains and smell out of my car, with no help from the valet.
We used Shephard's Beach Resort for both our wedding ceremony and wedding reception site, and were so absolutely pleased in both areas. You get married right out there on Clearwater Beach, yes it's a small beach, but you don't have beachgoers in the background of your photos etc. Shephard's Resort 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 seashore and with the Gulf of Mexico 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!
My husband and I would highly recommend Shephard's Beach Resort for your wedding ceremony and reception. The venue is phenominal and our wedding location was so private. Our family and friends enjoyed their stay. There is a lot to do at the resort. Our wedding was completly worry free due to the wonderful staff. We hope to vacation there again someday.
