At Pier Suite Events, we’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing brides! Here’s what they say about our Gulf Coast wedding venue:

“Easily the best venue in the Pensacola area!” – Ariel M.

“Since the moment we first saw the space at Pier Suite, I knew I wanted our friends and family to enjoy and remember Pensacola Beach from this venue. Not only the view is absolutely the best in the area, but Michelle and Laura took great care of every single detail to make our wedding day magical! We look back, and we wish we could do it all over again, and would not change a thing. Do not hesitate to host your special event at Pier Suite!” – Ingrid M.

“We absolutely loved having our wedding here!! It’s a beautiful, new, clean event space that you can decorate to make it perfect for your day. We loved working with Laura and Michelle, and appreciated all of the recommendations and help they provide. Would totally recommend Pier Suite for any event – but especially beach weddings!! Thank you Michelle and Laura!!” – Maddy P.

“My husband and I had our wedding here! I would definitely 10/10 recommend this absolutely stunning venue to literally anyone for any event! Laura and Michelle were so easy to communicate with! I honestly wouldn’t have wanted to get married in any other space. Best day of my life! Thank you Pier Suite!” – Savannah B.

“An amazing and incredible experience at Pier Suite. I highly recommend them for any special event. Owned by two amazing and inspiring women, they work with all the TOP local experts to accommodate your needs – and their team was so amazing and sweet – every one of them. Whatever we needed, they rushed to help however they could. Everyone was knowledgable and helpful. The night went off with a bang and ended in success!

We have a list of caterers we love who work in our space often and we’re happy to share those upon request. 

However, none of them are a requirement. You can bring in any caterer you wish as long as they are full service, licensed, and insured. At this time, we do not allow clients to bring in their own food. Click to secure your wedding date.

No. You must use a company from our vendor list to serve any alcohol out of our space. They have the licensing and insurance we need in order to serve alcohol safely out of our space. Click to contact us.

Yes. However, once reception begins, all “party” DJ or live music must be played inside the space only. You may have a single instrumentalist, small quartet, dj song playlist, etc. play during your ceremony if getting married on the balcony. However, due to sharing the building with other restaurants below, all reception music must be played inside the space only.

Decorations not allowed in the Pier Suite Event space are glitter, confetti, and anything open flamed. You must use all battery operated candles. Balloons are allowed inside the space but not on the balcony or outside due to being near the ocean. Cold sparklers are allowed on the balcony or ramp of the pier entry, but not inside the space.

We do have a bridal suite, but it is not large. It’s a more appropriate place for hiding the bride before the ceremony, to hang dresses or store items during the event, to do make up/hair touchups, etc. Click to take the virtual tour of our beachside wedding venue.

Most bridal parties choose to get ready at a condo, hotel room, or salon before arriving for the event.

Unfortunately, no. Per our lease, there are no animals allowed on the grounds of the property and the beach in front.

Your contract time is access in to access out. For example, if your contract is from 3-11pm. Your access to the space begins at 3pm. You, your service vendors, guests, whomever, can enter at 3pm. Most parties choose to end the actual party 1 hour before contracts end to clean everything out (decor, food, and/or people). We should be able to lock the door behind you at the time your contract ends. So 11pm is not the event end time, but the end venue access time.

You are responsible to take out whatever you brought in. Decor, pictures, anything you may have used to set up your event.

Catering will take care of your kitchen clean up and trash. However, if you bring in your own food, you will be responsible for kitchen cleanup, as well as, taking out the trash to the dumpsters. The cleaning of the space is included in your venue rental price, and will be done by Pier Suite staff.
