Saturday, June 27th, 2009
Bride & Groom in the OceanWaves lapping at the shore, seagulls flying overhead, a warm breeze kisses your skin….the aisle stretches out before you … and the man of your dreams is waiting for you right there under that palm tree at the water’s edge.  Whether your dream involves Flip Flops and a Low Country Boil or Manolos with Fine Dining, The King and Prince’s venues, extensive menus and outstanding service make the perfect backdrop for a most memorable event.
 
Weddings at The King and Prince are very special indeed.  I am Anne Thompson, the Wedding Catering Manager at the resort and for over 10 years now, I have had the pleasure of assisting brides in making their dreams come true in an incomparable setting.  It is most exciting – and quite an honor – to be a part of such a momentous occasion.
 
The King and Prince offers fantastic venues and catering for all events wedding related.
  • The Oceanfront Lawn is the quintessential beachside locale for welcome parties, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and even dinner and dancing under the stars.
  • The historic Delegal Dining Room is an elegant spot for receptions with stained glass windows and a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • The Solarium is an intimate oceanfront spot perfect for bridal luncheons, rehearsal dinners and receptions.
  • The Retreat Room’s view speaks for itself.  Being on the second floor, you can see miles and miles of ocean!  It is lovely for rehearsal dinners, luncheons, receptions, brunches and even ceremonies.
  • The Lanier Ballroom is the largest of our venues and is made for dancing the night away!
Full details with the exact capacities of each of the venues and all of our menus may be seen in our Wedding Catering Kit.  Take a minute to check it out and be sure to let me know what questions you have rdriggs@mmihg.com.
The King and Prince provides the venue, tables, white linens, chairs, china, flatware, napkins, barware, and all of the food & beverage for our events.  Having had the good fortune to host LOTS of weddings ensures that our service staff is among the absolute best and most experienced you will find.  The waiters, bartenders, chefs and banquet captains are top notch – and believe me, these folks are capable of making or breaking any event.  We are truly blessed to have the best in the business!
 
Brides are able to choose vendors to provide flowers, cake, music, coordination and their own officiate.  We are one of the few resorts left who allow brides to bring in outside contractors for these items, allowing her to truly personalize her event and not end up with a cookie cutter hotel wedding.
 
I’ll look forward to updating the blog with real wedding photos.  I am at your service anytime you have questions so please don’t hesitate in contacting me if I may provide assistance!

King and Prince Dining

Delegal Dining RoomHi, my name is Debora League.  I have been in the service industry for 30 years and have owned or operated numerous bars and or restaurants over the years. I am currently the Restaurant Manager at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. I have been with this company for almost 5 years and have to say it is one of the best experiences of my career. I manage many different food outlets at this resort, including the following:

The Atrium Café is what most coffee lover’s look for in the A.M. We serve “Starbucks” Coffee, Lattes, Cappuccinos, pastries and more.

The Blue Dolphin Restaurant that hosts: a breakfast buffet every morning, which includes a chef-attended omelet station and all of your traditional favorites. An incredible seafood buffet that is offered every Friday night, in addition to the regular menu that includes our local Wild Georgia Shrimp (no imported shrimp here). Some of my menu favorites are: the Shrimp and Grits, the lemon pepper Black Florida Grouper and the New Zealand lamb chops (cooked medium). We also serve a Southern Sunday Brunch that offers something for everyone.

The Paradise Beach Bar and Grill has the only outdoor beach-front dining on the Island, where you can sit and watch the dolphins play while enjoying regular or veggie burgers, hot dogs, salads and much, much more for a great price. I spend as much time as I can in this location because it never feels like work, no matter how busy we are.
