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!"
