I can’t even begin to say how much we love Shining Tides. It’s a perfect venue and Elizabeth is amazing to work with. My husband and I got married at the end of August and had both our ceremony and reception at Shining Tides. It was a typical hot and humid August day and then about an hour before the ceremony was to start, it started down-pouring. It lasted right up until the ceremony start, but Elizabeth held off on moving the ceremony indoors (onto the deck, which is covered) and right at 6pm the skies opened up and the rain stopped and a rainbow appeared. It was breathtaking, and we got to have the ceremony outside after all. Because of Elizabeth’s direction and help, everything went smoothly and my husband and I weren’t as stressed.
