If you’re thinking about a destination wedding but still want to hold the wedding of your dreams with all the friends, relatives, and elegant style of your Pinterest board, then let us introduce you to South Beach Event Center, the newest venue on the Mississippi Coast. Part of the beautiful South Beach Hotel & Suites, the only Biloxi hotel located directly on the beach, the Event Center offers 10,000 square feet of venue space with multiple room setups that can accommodate up to 350 guests. Our team partnered with the beautiful new venue and a few coast wedding pros to create this styled wedding inspiration to showcase the versatility and uniqueness of the venue and the luxury accommodations of the partner hotel.
The Event Center is located just a few short blocks from the hotel, and while the exterior is clean and industrial, the venue space is anything but. The Center boast two large venue spaces, the main room which comes complete with a stage which is perfect for both ceremony and reception spots, and a cocktail lounge with a large, wrap around bar and seating area where newlyweds can enjoy cocktail hour with their guests.
We chose to accent the space by relying on dramatic draping and lighting. Southern Event Productions draped our ceremony, cake, and stage backdrop and added amber lighting to highlight. Playing off the industrial exterior and the blank canvas of the main room, our team added strings of hanging Edison lights and rustic, industrial elements with lots of greenery for a dramatic elegant design.
Our bride and her attendants began their day with brunch before hair and makeup in one of the hotel’s beautifully appointed bridal suites. An all suites hotel, South Beach Hotel & Suites offers guests the luxury of hotel amenities with the convenience of a condo with a full kitchen, living area, and beach view balcony in either one or two bedroom floorplans.
Our bride took a few moments to herself on the beachfront balcony before heading down to the terrace for her first look and formal portraits.
The hotel’s third floor terrace is the perfect spot for those first look and formal wedding party portraits.
Strings of Edison lights and beautiful drapery set the stage for our ceremony.
The facility offers full A/V and production on site as well as full-service catering and bar packages.
Rustic, industrial touches like these battery powered lamps made unique and simple centerpieces for our guest tables.
As an added bonus, your wedding party and guests can stay in luxury suites with exclusive hotel room block packages at South Beach Biloxi Hotel & Suites which is conveniently located on the new Biloxi boardwalk where guests can stroll to nearby restaurants and shopping without leaving the beach.
