Palafox Wharf Waterfront Wedding/Reception Venue was unique. The outdoor waterfront lawn area was ideal for our grandson's wedding ceremony. We placed a bamboo arch overlooking the water for the exchange of vows and seated well over 100 guests. The indoor facility and outdoor deck lends itself to a variety of decorating possibilities. We found that the Old World charm of the building doesn't need a lot of additional decorating though. Table decorations were the main indoor decor. Sandy, who assisted in the rental and who was present on the wedding day, was efficient and ready to provide guidance. I would definitely recommend this lovely venue. .........................................Grandmother of the Groom

I just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks! Our wedding reception was absolutely fabulous. The space was perfect. I was so pleased how all of the decor turned out. Adam and I had an absolutely perfect wedding day and everyone we have since spoken to has told us the reception was the party of the year! Woohoo! Right now Adam and I are off to Costa Rica for 8 days of honeymooning. I will be sure to send you professional pics of your wonderful space as soon as I get them. Thanks again for everything.......Stephanie S., Bride

Where to even begin? I was just recently married at the Palafox Wharf and I loved it! From beginning to end, the experience was amazing! I don't live in Pensacola so I was worried I would be unable to really take part in every step of the venue planning. The venue coordinator, Sandy, was amazing. She kept me up to date with everything by email and over the phone. I had to rely on my mom for all of the decisions that had to be made in person and Sandy was there to help guide her on everything. The site was beautiful, clean and had such a great charm about it. It is restored but still has that old world feel to it. The grounds are just as beautiful and the location you just can't beat. Nestled right in the heart of historic downtown Pensacola and on the water, it makes for some amazing photo ops! I'm sure the Wharf has hosted tons of events, but they still had a way of making us feel "special" and ultimately that is how every bride and groom want to feel. That night, our dreams really did come true.. Thank You Palafox Wharf! Lacey, Bride...................See More at Testimonials
