Former bride, Barbara, shares her personal wedding review via WeddingWire, “Fabulous wedding rehearsal dinner venue! We could not have had a better wedding rehearsal event from start to finish! Catty was such a pleasure to work with in the planning. All details were completed prior to our arrival in Aruba. Our event played out smoothly from start to finish. The deck is right on the beach making for a perfect backdrop. The decorations were simple and elegant. The food was outstanding and quite a hit. Jonnique and her staff were excellent. They met our every need with a smile and pleasant attitude. All in all, we were able to enjoy the evening with confidence that all our guests were having a special time. Five gold stars for Matthew’s Beachside Restaurant!”.
