  • My new husband and I were engaged in Sept 2018 and pretty much right away started shopping for venues. We knew we wanted a beach wedding, and although TBW is not ON the beach, we pretty much fell in love with the space right after our visit. Our original date was 10/15/20...most venues didn't book that far in advance but Jon worked with us...and then of course we fell victim to postponement, so Jon easily booked our new date of 2/11/21. He answered all my millions of questions and is a great tour guide when you visit. He's super friendly and keeps everything safe covid wise. Thank you Jon for helping make our wedding special at your beautiful venue.
