On top of amazing location, stellar service!
My husband found the Rusty Pelican while looking for wedding sites and boy are we grateful! Don made the entire planning process so seamless and he provided an outline of every step along the way. ... Read more They take on a majority of the tasks and we literally did not have to lift a finger on our wedding day. From the time I stepped out of the limo to walk down the aisle to the gazebo, to when my husband and I made our exit, Don and Carlos and their crew catered to any and everything we as well as our guests needed. All of the guests raved about the service as well as the food and were extremely impressed with the layout of the ceremony and the reception. They made our day truly unforgettable!

Worth every penny
The Rusty Pelican was one of the first locations my now wife and I toured and we instantly fell in love. The location sets it right on the water and our wedding was right around sunset. The view was ... Read more absolutely magnificent. From the start, the Rusty Pelican event staff makes you feel comfortable and assured that your wedding will go off without a hitch. Our event coordinator was Don Valente and we cannot thank him enough for all that he did. Don took care of everything. He made sure we had our vendors lined up, he organized the room to ensure the best flow of traffic, and made sure everything was set up perfectly the day of the wedding. If you choose this location, know that you will not need a day of coordinator. They do an excellent job of making sure everything is in place to make your day perfect. This location is not cheap...but my wife and I can honestly say that every single dollar spent was 100% worth it. The food was AMAZING, but the staff was even better. Our dinner coordinator was Norma and she was absolutely outstanding. One nice thing about using this location was their understanding of the craziness of the day. They make sure that the bride and groom have a small separate moment to enjoy a small meal before everyone else eats dinner. Norma made sure we had champagne and some food and her staff was incredible when it came to tending to tables or helping our guests. Thank you so much to all of the staff at the rusty pelican for making our day so incredibly special.
