What do clients have to say about you?

"The Reeds- where do I begin? This venue is spectacular. Liz; Vanessa; Leah; Krista; and everyone else on the Reeds team was absolutely fantastic —professional in every way. My husband and I are big foodies and chose the Reeds for exactly that reason. We instantly fell in love with the incredible food and the breathtaking bay views. From day 1; the team starts to lay out all of your details; pricing; timelines and continues to guide you up to the big day. Liz was excellent with her communication; even answering emails in between events at the Reeds on weekends to help us get questions answered and details sorted out. The day of was unreal- we snuck into our reception early before cocktail hour; and that's the moment you just take a deep breath & realize the whole night is going to be perfect. And it was! I never felt stressed from 5 pm through our after-party in the Crew Room. We stayed in our complimentary room that night and were greeted with champagne; a blanket inscribed with our last initial; and a beautiful balcony. The rooms are spotless and gorgeous. Whatever you need; they will do their absolute best to accommodate you. We are so thankful we found the Reeds at Shelter Haven and will never forget our wedding weekend!!" - Meghan W.

"I challenge anyone to find a better venue. From the moment I stepped out onto the back deck at The Reeds; it was simply magical elegance. As I was led around to the deck area and the reception room I soon realized that the people were so extremely caring and nice even down to the waitresses and waiters who were welcoming. Unlike many other venues I had visited The Reeds was very flexible with our needs wants and budget ideas. On the day of our wedding; my now-husband and I kept looking at each other asking ourselves if this was real! We were treated like celebrities but also like family. They kept everything organized and on track and made the day go so smoothly and allowed us to have a blast on the dance floor! They gave us a leach a plate of food and cake to go so we could eat it late night! Liz; who coordinated the whole thing; is incredible and the sweetest person! I hope to go back and visit soon and meet up with the team as they have been such a huge positive impact on our lives for that one special day! #bestdayever #thereeds" - Morgan D.

"Our wedding weekend at The Reeds was an absolute dream! Stone Harbor is our favorite place and The Reeds was the perfect place to make that come to life. We got engaged late summer and ended up waiting almost two years to get married so we could have a summer wedding at The Reeds and it was absolutely worth it! The whole team at The Reeds was so accommodating and helpful and was always available to answer questions and provide guidance. The details meeting was so helpful in making our vision come to life so that our day ended up perfect. Vanessa was our coordinator throughout and helped handle all the small details the day of so I could relax knowing everything was under control. Everyone couldn't get over how beautiful the venue is and raved about the food. We had brunch at the Reeds the next morning which was also the perfect venue and a great end to a wonderful weekend. The getting ready room at the new spa was beautiful and the perfect space to get ready for the day - it has everything you need and was super comfy!" - Kathryn D.
