Words cannot express how perfect the wedding was for Keri & Eric. . . That was in large part due to all of your organization and planning. The resort was beautiful, food excellent and overall a very nice visit in addition to a beautiful wedding.

Thanks so much.

My husband and I got married at the King and Prince Resort on March 28, 2015. It was the greatest day of our entire lives. The King and Prince Resort was phenomenal. The staff was so amazing. We worked primarily with Scarlett, who is unbelievably wonderful! She is one of the sweetest people I've ever met and truly helped us with every detail along the way. The other staff at the K&P were so amazing on the wedding day. We truly got to relax and enjoy our day because the King and Prince took care of all the wonderful details. We are so grateful to Scarlett and everyone at the K&P for making our day so fantastic. I would recommend the K&P to anyone! We had our ceremony on the lawn and our reception in the Delegal room. We loved that our ceremony and reception were right next to each other, and the locations were just beautiful. Also, the food was DELICIOUS. I highly recommend skipping a wedding cake and going with the K&P's brownie and ice cream station (best brownie a la mode I've ever had). The King & Prince blew our expectations out of the water. They are a great option for your special day! Also, our engagement was only 5 months long. The King & Prince can help you create the wedding of your dreams in a short amount of time if needed! We are so grateful for them!!

The King and Prince Beach Resort is the perfect location for a fairytale wedding! The staff is amazing and will make your wildest dreams come true! I am from Portland, OR, so obviously, this was a destination wedding. The staff made it so simple to plan, and set up tastings and tours the one weekend I had available without any hesitation. The wedding weekend was perfect! I came in on a Thursday and only had to have one small 15 minute meeting to square away the final details! I am so blessed to have had the perfect wedding! If you want the perfect beach wedding, I fully recommend The King and Prince Beach Resort!

The King and Prince did a wonderful job handling our daughters wedding. The staff was professional and through and the food was excellent. Beautiful setting and weather made it perfect. Highly recommend.

Kim W, via TripAdvisor, says:

We were married here on the back lawn and it could not have been more perfect. Ruth Driggs, the wedding catering manager, assured everything was perfect and we had not a worry in the world knowing she had everything taken care of. The seafood buffet afterward in the Solarium was just over the top. Everyone raved about how wonderful it was. I could not imagine a better spot to be married. All of our family stayed here and everyone loved how friendly and attentive the staff was.

Lisa E., from guest letter, says:

Letter from Jennifer S.:

Dear Mr. Johnson (Director and General Manager):
My fiance and I would like to say a very big "thank you" for all of the assistance we received the weekend of May 25-27, 2013. Jason and I had talked about coming down to the island at some point over the summer. Well, Jason told me to pack my bags and we were headed down to The King and Prince the Monday of the same week. He spoke with Michael in reservations, and he was extremely nice and helpful. What I didn't know at the time was that Jason told him he was planning on proposing to me while we were down there. St. Simons Island has always been a huge part of my family. I remember walking to The King and Prince from my grandmother's house and always wanted to stay there as a little girl. I wanted to be a princess. Well, Jason made me his princess that night on the beach when he proposed.
The next morning, we were in the lobby, and speaking with Sabrina and Clarence. We told them we'd just gotten engaged, and they both congratulated us. When we came back to the room later that afternoon, they had sent up a bottle of champagne for us. As we were leaving to go out for dinner, Jon told us about the full moon rising up over the water and how beautiful it is to watch. He was right. It was such a beautiful and romantic experience. We were in a Historic Oceanfront room and had an amazing view. We sipped on the champagne and talked about our future by moonlight.
We were so impressed by the hotel staff, property and service we were given while there. Sabrina & Clarence at the Front Desk were wonderful. Jon helped us with the great tip of the moonrise over the ocean. Thank you for employing such great employees who go the extra mile to assist their guests. I've also spoken with Ruth Driggs in your Wedding Catering department. She has been a great help as well. Once we determine a date, we will be back in touch with her.
Jason and I hope to be back to see you soon and enjoy another stay. Again, thank you for being such a great resort and employing such a wonderful staff.

Julie J., from Facebook, says:

THE staff at the K&P knows how to do weddings!! I'd heard it for years, but now I can recommend from personal experience. Thank you for a perfect day - you all are the BEST <3

Ryan F., from TripAdvisor says:

We had our wedding here and I have to say it was even more perfect than we would have ever imagined. The staff were beyond top notch, the food was amazing, the venue was perfect, and EVERYTHING was taken care of by the wedding staff on site. Our guests who stayed here also raved about the rooms and service. This place was incredible. Thank you K&P!

Holly J., from Guest Comment says:

Superb! Such an amazing finish to a fairytale evening. My husband and I had our wedding reception at the resort and were in awe of the tower room we were given to stay in for our wedding night. It was so magical. King size bed, champagne at bedside, gorgeous balcony view of the beach... we couldn't ask for more. The morning was even more spectacular with sunrise view and downstairs buffet breakfast then short dip in the hot tub! Ahh it's been over two weeks now and we still talk about how we had such an amazing experience! We will definitely be back for anniversaries.

Theo & Melinda B., from Guest Letter say:

We can't say "thank you" enough. Our reception was wonderful. The effort and commitment delivered by you and your team was beyond what we had hoped for. Thank you all very very much.

Christine F., from TripAdvisor says:

One of the jewels in the Golden Isles of Georgia....Spanish moss hangs from the trees as you drive up to the resort. There are cottages for rent, condos and an updated section to stay in, but I highly recommended in staying in the old, original resort room - it will make you feel like a Vanderbilt! The wedding was in October, on the beach; the reception on the lawn just in front of the King's Tavern Restaurant, and we all spent the night barefoot drinking, dining and dancing! The most attentive staff and beautiful accommodations you can find along a beautiful stretch of the Southeast Atlantic seacoast! Oh, and if you're a golfer, then this place is heaven on earth for you!

Devan T, from Guest Letter says:

Anne! I cannot ever thank you enough for your hospitality. You, Scarlett and your iron clad team have been life savers for me. I will never be able to thank you enough for my dream wedding and reception! I'm such a sentimental person and love making memories...therefore I cannot wait to have anniversaries here for years to come! You are my kind of people and you have made this my dream come true! You have an amazing personality and professionalism that are the perfect mix! I can't wait to spend a couple more days here before we have to go back home! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your hard work!

Ruth B, from Guest Evaluation says:

I appreciate the staff, the hotel, the cleanliness, the great food, and the welcoming atmosphere of The King and Prince. You guys made my wedding reception beautiful. I made a wonderful choice! Thank you.

Brooke Y, from Guest Letter says:

My husband and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary yesterday. Going through the pictures made me think about how perfect our big day was and we owe it all to the King and Prince staff. Our wedding was beyond our expectations, from the food to the honeymoon! The staff at the King and Prince will make you feel like royalty. Anne and Scarlett are so experienced and really love what they do- believe me, it shows! I will never forget how the Delegal room looked when we entered our reception. It was like a dream! People still tell us how much fun they had at our wedding- and that is exactly what we wanted! I am so very pleased that we chose this romantic and beautiful hotel as the setting for our special day. Thank you to everyone at the King and Prince from the bottom of our hearts.

Jennifer L, from Post Stay Survey says:

I am in the group travel/incentives industry. So I consider myself a tough customer when it comes to hotel experiences. I have only great things to say about the property and the employees. Our wedding weekend was perfect!

Diane M., from Event Evaluation says:

The service was excellent & we had so many compliments about the food from our guests.  Anne & Scarlett were awesome. Thanks for making our wedding wonderful & quite memorable!

We keep talking about the wedding (we held at The King and Prince) and we wouldn't have changed a thing. Everyone was so accommodating and nice. It was a perfect wedding and we are telling everyone about it!

Cheryl H, from Event Evaluation Form says:

It was a pleasure planning our reception with Anne and Scarlett (Wedding Catering Managers). They were always available to answer questions and willing to give their support and advice when needed. The Delegal Room was stunning, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend the King and Prince to anyone who is interested in booking a venue for a special event.

Rhonda R, from Guest Letter says:

I, along with my entire family, wish to thank Scarlett (Wedding Catering Asst.) for doing such an excellent job as our wedding consultant at the King & Prince. Working with you was such a positive experience and we felt such confidence that Amy's wedding was going to be great. From Amy, Zach, Riley, and me, thank you for all your help, advice, and reassurance.
Please extend our thanks and appreciate to the entire staff who worked on our event. The wedding venue was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the service outstanding. We have heard so many compliments about everything and we owe a large part of the success to your hard work and attention to our requested details.

Matt P, from Event Evaluation Form says:

Working with Anne & Scarlett (Wedding Catering Managers) prior to and during the wedding was a wonderful experience! We would recommend planning a wedding with them at The King and Prince to anyone The King and Prince Resort exceeded our expectations as far as how beautiful and relaxing it was. We heard only happiness from all out guests over their accommodations and the beauty of our wedding/reception. Thank you again to Anne, Scarlett and The King and Prince for our wonderful wedding and reception experience!

Angel P, from Event Evaluation Form says:

Thank you for helping give my daughter her dream wedding. Anne (Wedding Catering Manager) & Scarlett (Wedding Catering Assistant) we love you! Anything we needed and wanted you made happen!

There are no words to adequately thank you for all you did to make Jenna and Caldwell's wedding so wonderful. We were all so pleased with everything at the King and Prince. Working with you and your staff was amazing. You are true professionals, and made planning so easy for us. We do appreciate all of your assistance and advice through this very long process. We had so many compliments on the food and the service. I was amazed at how quickly they served all the guests. They were so efficient and we could not have been more pleased. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to them for a job well done. Our experience at the King and Prince far exceeded our expectations. Anne, thanks so much for making certain everything went so well Saturday night. It was truly a dream come true for Jenna. Our experience there at the King and Prince was so very positive! You guys are amazing and we can not thank you enough for all that you did to make this such a beautiful memory for Jenna and Caldwell!

Olivia N, from Event Evaluation Form says:

Scarlett Starr and Anne Thompson are excellent wedding coordinators and made my wedding day as special as it possibly could be. I never had to worry about the details of the ceremony or the reception because both of these ladies made sure that every request I had was fulfilled. I appreciate all of the kindness and cooperation that both of these ladies had with our bridal party and my family. They were very accommodating and helped us in any way they could. They are wonderful members of the staff and do an excellent job. On the day of my wedding, I saw Scarlett rushing around the resort making sure all the details were in place and any problem that arose during pictures or preparation were immediately solved. I felt comfort knowing she was there to handle all the details and this was priceless to me!!! Thank you so much for making my wedding day the most incredible day of my life!!

Mitzi A, from Event Evaluation Form says:

Thank you for going above & beyond to meet my requests for my wedding day. I felt extremely secure that my events would be a success and that my guests would be happy. Scarlett (Wedding Catering Asst.) was able get us access to the Delegal room earlier than anticipated which was a huge relief (and made a great impression) to the mother of the groom. Anne (Wedding Catering Manager) was excellent at leading me in the right direction with regards to décor, set-up and menu selections. Her attention to detail from start to finish was key in making it a “worry free” evening for me and my groom. Together, Anne & Scarlett make a great team and compliment one another. Working with them was such a pleasure. Laurie (Group Rooms Coordinator) was so helpful with providing rooming lists in a timely manner and even made a special effort to let me know we were able to check in early on our arrival day. Gurkan and the banquet staff were wonderful as well. Everything was coordinated smoothly. All my guests raved about the delicious food! Thanks again for helping us create such wonderful memories.

Melissa H, from Guest Letter says:

I am sitting down to write this letter of thanks for all you did to make our daughter’s wedding weekend so incredibly wonderful. From our very fist phone call when I had a thousand questions and just as many concerns, you made me feel at ease. You were kind and calm and confident in what you could provide. You were courteous and fun and kept your sense of humor when I couldn’t find mine. You took my worried “first time mother of the bride crazies” in stride and just let me ask questions until I was satisfied. You were awesome. You gave me the confidence I needed to plan the “dream reception” we wanted so much for Katy. And DREAM RECEPTION it was!! Everything about it was so fantastic. You made sure that all our love we felt for our daughter and new son-in-law came shining through in even the smallest of details. All we had to do was look into Katy’s eyes to see how thrilled she was. We’re still hearing from guests about how much they loved the reception. I don’t think some of our friends will ever stop talking about the shrimp and grits! Everything was over the top awesome. I just want to make sure you know how much we appreciate all you did to make Katy and David’s wedding so outstanding. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!

David S, from Guest Letter says:

Everything was absolutely PERFECT!!! Thank you and your staff for making it a perfect evening. We received comments from almost everyone in attendance about how nice everything was. The weather was perfect; the view was perfect; the food was outstanding; the service and treatment from you and your staff was above outstanding if that is possible. We will NEVER forget that evening. Thank you very much.

Olivia M, from Guest Letter says:

I just wanted to thank you all you have done for me to make my wedding day and night perfect. From the ceremony, to the food, to the decorations, our wedding day was exactly what we both wanted. There wasn't one detail missing. This meant so much to me and Barrett! Planning this wedding while working full time and in school full time has been a challenge and I could not have done it without Anne and Scarlett handling the majority of the wedding plans for me. I just wanted to thank you both for all your help in making our day perfect! We loved every minute of it!

Jamie D, from Guest Letter says:

A million thanks to Anne and Scarlett for helping make Danielle's day a whopping success, and a true "dream" wedding! We got so many comments from the guests - how wonderful the food was, and what a beautiful reception it was - nothing but positives from everyone. Danielle and I are so thankful to have been blessed by you two - so easy to work with, and so attentive to all our needs. Even down to a safety pin for my spaghetti strap mishap! I would recommend your facility to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue. Thanks again for everything!

Beth B, from Guest Letter says:

I want to thank you for the way everything went the week of my wedding. When people ask how my wedding went I tell them perfect and I can honestly say that it was. Not only were Anne and Scarlett good to us but so was the rest of the staff that we came in contact with. The King and Prince made our wedding everything it should be and more. I have already started recommending The King and Prince to other people for their vacation. We are already planning to come back for our anniversary next year and we can’t wait to see you then! Thank you so much for everything. It is a wonderful memory I will have always.

Lajoy & Michael S, from Post Stay Questionnaire say:

Our daughter's wedding ceremony was in the Retreat Room and the reception was in the Delegal Room on Saturday, June 18. WOW is all we have to say! This hotel is gorgeous and the perfect backdrop for a magical wedding day! We chose the low country boil for the wedding reception and people are still talking about it! Crab legs, shrimp, chicken, catfish...what else could you ask for! Such friendly staff! We were always treated with kindness and respect. Friendly bartenders as well! We are simply thrilled with our wedding week! It was a wedding to remember! Thank you King and Prince!

Kim G, from Guest Letter says:

We had such a great time and everything was perfect for our daughter’s wedding! You guys were SO much help to make it such a special day for Ana and Matthew. I could not have asked for a better place to have a wedding. I will be sure to promote you, Scarlett and The King and Prince to everyone I know who is wanting a destination wedding. We had so many compliments about how wonderful and beautiful everything was.

Karen K, from Guest Evaluation says:

We absolutely loved working with you guys. You were wonderful in every way! Everything for our daughter’s wedding reception was perfect. Thank you especially Anne and Scarlett for checking on us at the reception.

Deb J, from Guest Letter says:

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You both did so much to make Tony & Donae’s wedding a special event all will remember. The room, food and service was perfect. Comments from the guests included, “best wedding food ever” and “what a beautiful room and view.”The setting could not have been more breathtaking and intimate. It was exactly what Tony & Donae were thinking of when they began planning the wedding.

Dana J, from Guest Letter says:

Thank you for all you did to make Devon and Brendan’s wedding reception just perfect. Anne and Scarlett worked so hard and we appreciate all of your hard work. Devon had a vision of what she wanted and you helped her to achieve that vision. The Delegal room looked perfect. The food was delicious and the staff were wonderful..

Regina J, from Guest Evaluation says:

We could not be happier with our experience at The King and Prince for our special wedding weekend for our daughter. Thank you so much to Anne and Scarlett and a very competent staff for making our day worry free. We will highly recommend The King and Prince as a venue for any special event. Thanks so much!

Mary D, from Guest Evaluation says:

Everything was excellent for the wedding reception. We love the Delegal Room; what a magnificent view! The stained glass murals are beautiful and rich. The food was delicious. My guests are still complimenting us on every detail. Thank you for helping make our daughter and new son’s wedding so perfect.

Janice S, from Guest Evaluation says:

After visiting several locations in the area, we visited The King and Prince and upon arrival on the grounds I knew this was it. Scarlett was magnificent; she put the icing on the cake. For 18 months, she treated us as if we were the only clients she had. She is charming and very pleasant to work with. She is very accommodating and made sure that Stephanie had everything she needed to make her wedding day a perfect day. There is one word that sums up my friends at The King and Prince and that is “exceptional.” My thanks to each of you who touched our lives in one way or another during our stay and visits at the King and Prince. Your hospitality was fabulous and I highly recommend the resort. Again, my sincere thanks to Scarlett and Anne for making my little girl’s dreams come true.

Cheryl T, from Guest Letter says:

Thank you so very much for hosting such a perfect event. The staff was marvelous, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. We could not have had any better from you all. We appreciated your ability to offer us wonderful accommodations and service. After my first face to face interaction with Scarlett I relaxed so much, feeling totally confident that everything was under control. That is so priceless.

Susan W, from Wedding Evaluation says:

I can’t say enough good things about the staff at The King and Prince and our experience having our daughter’s wedding there. Anne Thompson and Scarlett Starr were so wonderful to work with! From day one, Anne was able to put me at ease, and that was not an easy task! She guided me honestly and fairly through the whole process, culminating in a spectacular wedding there on the lawn. I could not have been happier with everything. The cocktail hour and reception had just the right touch with wonderful food, presentation and service. Our guests were so complimentary; I’m still hearing their accolades. The King and Prince impressed everyone as being the classiest place for a beautiful wedding. Though many guests had never visited The King and Prince and St. Simons before, I know they will be returning. Many thanks to you all!

Lori M, from Wedding Evaluation says:

Anne and Scarlett made this event for our family and friends an exceptional experience. Thank you for your gracious nature towards us through the whole process of planning this event. You both are genuinely interested in your customers, and you bent over backwards to help make our reception happen at The King and Prince. We greatly appreciate your flexibility and courtesy through the process. You both get stellar recommendations from my parents, Randy, and me. Randy appreciated Laurie’s kindness in working with him to reserve a cottage for him and his groomsmen; she was professional and gracious as well. The property itself was beautifully decorated, and all the guests said the service and food was excellent. Our wedding day was a day of joy and beauty. Thank you!

Kathryn C, from Guest Letter says:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We are so appreciative of all the time and energy you put into making our wedding so special. From the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony to the reception, the entire event went off without a hitch! Anne and Scarlett were so wonderful to work with. No matter how crazy things got, I knew they were in control, and that made me feel much better. Thank you for all your hard work and making sure the wedding went off without a hitch. It was just beautiful!

Kathy D, from Wedding Evaluation

My husband and I would like to commend Anne on her superb professional skills as Wedding Catering Manager. As the bride’s mother and wedding coordinator of this destination wedding, I particularly appreciated Anne’s knowledge, attention to details, timely responses to numerous phone calls and emails, as well as her general positive, friendly personality. She went “above and beyond the call of duty” to meet our family needs. It is indeed rare to find a professional of Anne’s skill level and dependability these days. She made our daughter’s entire wedding event a “dream come true.” We’ll be back!

Our daughter, Merrill Martin, had her wedding reception at the resort. Everyone there was wonderful. Ann Thompson the wedding planner was just the best. I will always recommend your resort.
