Our daughter's wedding party stayed at the Night Swan Bed and Breakfast owned by Matt & Betsy Baker. The B&B welcomes families celebrating their anniversary, special occasion, wedding, family reunion, birthday or just a getaway! We highly recommend the Night Swan. The B&B is located across the street from the intracoastal where they have a double-deck dock where you can sit & relax while watching out for dolphin and manatees; bring your pole for some good fishing and bring your boat as you can park it at their private dock. The main house/cottage rooms are beautifully decorated with many having the view of the intracoastal or of the nice courtyard where the B&B is located. The B&B includes homemade breakfast each day (we had pancakes, breakfast enchiladas, and quiche along with fresh fruit, yogurt and pastries) followed by fresh baked cookies for the afternoon. If you stay in the main house, you will awake to the aroma of breakfast from the kitchen! Matt & Betsy were incredible hosts and know that we will return in the very near future!
Planning a Beach Wedding? We highly recommend “Affordable Beach Weddings” – Eva and Mike were awesome to work with and helped us plan every detail to make Amber & Carlos’ wedding a truly elegant “Princess” wedding.
We participated in several activities around the area and recommend you try them if you go to New Smyrna Beach. Fun Cat Sailing out of Ponce Inlet provided us private cruises on the
intracoastal and fishing in addition to a private catamaran sunset cruise. The wedding party participated in a 1.5 hour river paddle tour by Paddle Board New Smyrna Beach that included Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Hydro Biking and Kayaking along the intracoastal areas.
The Reception in New Smyrna Beach was held at “The Garlic” – an excellent Italian food restaurant known for their roasted garlic and French bread as a complimentary appetizer that comes with the meal. The atmosphere and ambiance of the outdoor dining is quite interesting and a great experience.
Outriggers Tiki Bar and Restaurant – an upscale-casual waterfront dining experience - was very laid back, casual and a fun eatery. Menu items include Southern classics, hamburgers, salads and a number of seafood/fish menu items. Reasonably priced and very accommodating with large parties.
Mon Delice French Bakery – ordered Amber & Carlos’ wedding cake here and it was delicious!
Must stop in if you are in the area to try their breads, pastries, and sandwiches which are unbelievable! Arrive early in the AM as you may expect a line to be waited on, but worth the wait!
We also wanted to provide a special thank you to Pink Flamingo for the beautiful flower arrangements for the wedding and Kelly Layshock for spending the day to do hair and make-up for Amber and her bridesmaids.
Thanks to all, for making Amber and Carlos’ wedding a very memorable day!
