Have you been to Palafox Wharf? Well, if not, imagine yourself not having to "work" on Wedding Day. Your event layout already has been designed with you. Your Venue tables and chairs have already been placed. The physically hard work has been completely checked off your To Do List. You and your besties are in hair and makeup!
Stepping into the Venue you find a large dining area with 20' ceilings with warm wood and exposed brick. A stunning Copper Wall hand painted by one of Pensacola’s top creatives. You see an extra large built in original wood Dance Floor (from 1880) which is graced with overhead romantic Market Lights.
Palafox Wharf offers you the most sought after creative premier vendors. You will love to have the DJ set up his/her station theater style on the landing above the Dance Floor. He or she can easily get a better vibe of your guests and can better see you and your loved one for your Grand Entrance to introduce you as Married!
Also, your photographer can take amazing photos of you and your guests from the landing. You will see that that the tables have Chiavari chairs, the most favored reception chair. The Venue usually places a set-up for 120 guests inside however can go up to 150.
There can be additional guest seating on the waterfront deck with gorgeous scenic view up to 75.
The Venue can accommodate from 30 guests up to 200 guests (cocktail style called strolling for 200 guests) at the Wharf.
You see super large skylights in the ceiling bringing immense light into the Venue. You will also find a complimentary Rolling Cake table and the 40’ built-in Cocktail Bar made of reclaimed wood from historic American Liberty Ships. Stepping into the restrooms, you find they are well appointed with colors of the sea with touches of copper and bronze, a sparkly counter with gold flecks, and eye catching meticulously hand-painted sinks.
You will see a whimsical looking post in the cocktail area that is part of a ship's mast from the original owner of this historical Venue – way back in 1880. You walk outside to the extra-large waterfront Deck and see a beautiful scenic marina filled with yachts and a large Pier on clear, blue water sparkling like diamonds. The Venue is nestled in a highly desirable area of historic South Palafox Street directly on the water with close hotel accommodations, restaurants, and entertainment. The glorious sunsets and views are beyond breathtaking and magical.
As you walk out to the large Deck, you experience your Aha! moment stopping and gazing at the gorgeous, magical, scenic view. You see sparkling diamonds shining from the blue water. You also see the Green with a beautiful plush golf course grass. It is lush and feels like a thick carpet. You see that The Green is a huge outdoor space where most Wedding Ceremonies are held. Is photography important to you? Imagine a glorious sunset Wedding Ceremony facing the great view of the Pensacola historic harbor. Or, imagine al fresco fresh air dining outside on the Green to relax with your guests under the stars. Or, enjoy Cocktail Hour with lawn games.
If you choose a Saturday when the Wahoo’s are playing at their Pensacola home, you may be treated to free Fireworks that the team has at the end of each home game. The perfect place to be is on the Venue’s Deck or Dock to enjoy these Fireworks along with your guests. This is a huge hit with your guests!
