Bon Appétit Weddings – Say “I do” Services

You’ve already said “yes”… now let us help you find the ideal place to say, “I do.” We provide complete wedding coordination services for receptions and ceremonies. Our location on the waterfront means you can enjoy a picturesque backdrop for your ceremony in one of two locations:

  • Upstairs in our Sunset II room with 180 degree views of St. Joseph Sound (up to 85 guests).
  • On the Sunset Pier (outside) the restaurant overlooking the Intracoastal waterways, St, Joseph Sound and Caladesi Island (up to 65 guests).

Once you’ve said your vows, the reception is just a few steps away in the Crystal Ballroom, with the same beautiful ocean views. We will blend spiritual and non-spiritual secular customs, individualized rituals, and multi-family member vows. You may choose from a variety of services including traditional, non traditional, shell blessing, unity candle, rose ceremony, Irish blessings, and much more.  Contact us now for a tour of the restaurant and waterfront. We’ll work with you to create a wedding package and experience that’s perfect for you.
