August, 2018 Wedding Ceremony & Reception:
"I have stayed at the resort several times and because of the service and beauty of your location, I wanted to have my special day at Pelican Beach Resort.
However, Will and I wanted to let management know that "JOSH PRYOR" and "RICH SCHULTZ" are THE BEST. They represented Pelican Beach Resort with a Spirit of Excellence and Exceptional Customer Service. You all were so patient and helpful to me and my husband during the entire process and preparation. Josh, you are definitely an asset to the resort and your customer service was not what you expect in today's climate. Rich, we love you and will always remember your Pizzazz. My husband talks about you and those awesome shoes. You made our guest comfortable and the reception and the food and your staff 'KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK".

June, 2015 Wedding Reception:
"Conference Center was reserved for wedding reception and this was our first event at Pelican Beach Resort. We were extremely satisfied with the overall professional performance and guidance of Coordinator Josh Pryor. Josh was easily accessible and always answered any questions promptly by phone, text or e-mail. He also did an excellent job setting up and organizing the conference center for the wedding reception. Josh went above and beyond the evening of the wedding by helping us move the wedding inside due to rain. Due to his presence and quick response to our concerns, the wedding was a beautiful success in the reception room. Josh is a tremendous asset to Pelican Beach Resort.
The catering staff performed in a professional manner. The tables looked beautiful with all the tableware and the food was delicious. The entire staff performed admirably and we were very pleased. We would highly recommend Josh and the staff of Pelican Beach Resort to host any special event.
Thank you Josh for all your help. We enjoyed meeting you and look to forward to seeing you again next year!"
