New Waterfront Wedding Venue in Galveston, TX: Inside the Sea Scout Base (Galveston Wedding Photographer)
I met Sara about a month ago and immediately after I heard about the new venue she's working at, I knew I had to go check it out. My brother was in Boy Scouts all throughout his childhood. He even went through the tremendous process of becoming an Eagle Scout - which most boys don't make it that far because it takes a TON of work! But even through that, I didn't know this place existed. While they do lots of summer camps and educational training, the Sea Scout Base Galveston is now available for events!
Sara said, "Sea Scout Base Galveston is a 501c3 non profit organization that offers aquatic education programs that instill lifetime leadership, teamwork skills, and independence in body, mind and spirit. Our facility is LEED Platinum certified, the highest standard for environmental design out there and our event rentals help with the organizations overhead - so any bride can feel good about her special day helping others and the environment . We are in our 2nd year of operation and hope to have many more brides choose us as their venue for their special day!"
While I was there, I also had Sara answer a few questions for me about the location.
How big is it? "The outdoor chapel can seat 200. The banquet hall can seat up to 300, or 250 with a dance floor."
What is your ideal bride and groom like? What qualities do they have? What are their interests?"They are looking for something unique. They love the water, whether it be just the view or being active on the water. They are interested in making a difference and the environment is an important issue for them. Any bride or groom looking for a destination wedding in Galveston are also great candidates."
What does your venue provide couples that they can't get anywhere else?A beautiful facility with excellent views, customer service, and space that not only makes their day great, but also gives back to a great cause!
Oh, and did I mention that they have 36 different boats available for use as well?
