Testimonials:

Heather,

Matt, my family and I can not thank you and your amazing staff enough for your hard work and loving and caring personalities that helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator and staff to create the most beautiful atmosphere and food (that people are still bragging about). It would not have come together with out all of you and it was perfect! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

-The Murphree and Rodriguez families

My daughter's wedding reception at The Florida Yacht Club was BEAUTIFUL! The food was delicious and the staff was very professional. Heather Jarman was AMAZING to work with. She is very organized. I can't say THANK YOU enough to Heather for making my daughter's wedding the best day of her life.

-Mindy Rodriguez

 Heather and her team at The Florida Yacht Club did an amazing job. Our wedding was BEAUTIFUL. Several guests made it a point to tell me that is was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Heather was very attentive, responded to every email and question quickly, made sure we had thought through every little detail, and helped to make sure that every vision that I had for the day came true. This venue is gorgeous and everyone had an absolute blast!

The rooms were so lovely and set up elegantly. All the guests were complimentary about the menu and they thought it was just perfect for a refreshingly light lunch. It was a pleasure working with Heather and I applaud the FYC servers and staff.

Pamela Mills (Catering & Event Director) made everything so easy and fewer worries for me. Chef Jojo Hernandez's (Executive Sous Chef) food was delectable from appetizer to main course! Heather Jarman (Catering & Events Manager) and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best that it could be. All of our guests had an awesome evening and the FYC staff made it all possible! I will highly recommend The Florida Yacht Club to all my friends who need a venue in the future.

Heather was such an amazing wedding coordinator! She was always so responsive, organized and on the ball. We all appreciated that, but my Mom especially did. The set up of FYC was absolutely stunning. The food was delicious and all of the staff were so friendly to us. Heather was great. We had the best time of our lives! Thank you for making it happen!

- Mr. and Mrs. John McKinney

 

Pamela and Heather helped me so much this past year making my wedding dreams come true. When I say the whole night was perfect and the venue was stunning, I truly mean it. Drew and I were blown away by everything and the staff was wonderful to our guests. Thank you for the basket of food and champagne as well, we definitely enjoyed it all that night and the next day! FYC made this whole experience so easy and fun!

 - Mr. and Mrs. Drew Hannon

 

John and I had the most amazing day at the Yacht Club for our wedding! Pamela is, by far, the most kind, thoughtful, and hard working Event Director! I could not have had such a relaxing and special day without her! Thank you to all the staff at The Florida Yacht Club!

- Mrs. Ashlee Shinwar

 

FYC provided Courtney with the wedding of her dreams. I'm not sure which was more amazing ... Pamela or FYC's beautiful venue! I am in awe of how everything turned out. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the staff was just a delight to work with. People are raving to me about the food. The florist raved about the kindness of the staff members who assisted in bringing up the flowers. From start to finish, everything was just perfect. It warmed my heart to see our guests having so much fun!

- Mrs. Sheri Criswell
