It's been said... “The Pearl was the most perfect wedding venue – beyond what we could have ever imagined or hoped for. Living in Atlanta, I was worried that it would be difficult to plan the wedding and choose the right vendors. The Pearl made everything so easy - they recommended fantastic vendors and put our minds at ease throughout the entire planning process. I assumed that the final weeks leading up to the wedding would be stressful, but we knew that everything was taken care of and could truly enjoy that exciting time. And, of course, then there was the wedding, which was flawless! We are still in awe of how beautiful everything was, and we have The Pearl to thank for making it all happen. The food, service, and layout (flowers, band, and every little detail) were all perfect, and everything ran so smoothly that we were able to enjoy every moment. The staff was attentive throughout the night and accommodating to all of our requests. We are so glad that we chose the Pearl for our wedding and grateful to the entire staff for such a beautiful, wonderful night! ~ Elizabeth & Chris I cannot say enough about our experience with The Pearl. From beginning to end they made the process incredibly easy. We have come to Rosemary Beach for the past 10 years but have never visited The Pearl, but have always admired it. When planning our wedding we knew we wanted the Beach feel but with a modern twist that incorporated our style! When on our family vacation this past summer we set up a meeting to preview the space. We knew it was for us immediately and booked it before returning home. Unfortunately, we were unable to revisit The Pearl before our wedding ... I was a little hesitant not having a vendor day and picking, seeing, tasting and confirming BUT the more I talked to the Weddings Team the more I knew it would all be exactly as we wanted. They were constantly available to us and went above and beyond to ensure it was everything we imagined. We got married and had the reception on the rooftop. The backdrop and decor speaks for itself and is the reason we choose it. Every single person we came in contact with at The Pearl was amazing! The food for the reception was incredible and the experience as a whole was super easy and relaxed! I would put the process and experience up against any other venue across the country. For the price and what it includes we were blown away! So happy we choose this venue and thankful for the wonderful people we met in the process, each and every one made our day truly unforgettable. ~Jessica & Nathan

When you choose The Pearl, their team provides the most blissful experience. From start to finish, the planning to the day after our wedding, we never had to worry which, made our engagement and wedding day that much more special! We essentially were able to plan ceremony, reception, catering, florals, cake and food in one meeting about six months out from the wedding. Exchanged a few emails until days before the wedding where we had our final wrap-up to polish off tiny details. The rehearsal was a breeze & they ensured that nothing went unnoticed and every detail was sheer perfection the day of our wedding. The Pearl has chosen a specific list of vendors and rightfully so. It makes narrowing down your florist, photographer and music choice much easier, and honestly, I don't think we could have made a wrong choice. ~Crystal & Lindsay We had our wedding at The Pearl at the end of October, it was perfect! The location in Rosemary Beach with the weather, amazing beaches and beautiful architecture was topped by the wonderful experience in having our wedding at The Pearl. The planning experience was pretty easy and very organized. We had a couple major special moments that were pulled off happily with lots of thoughtful, extra effort by The Pearl. We would 100% recommend this venue, the team and setting were amazing! ~Jackie & Jarod
