Try something new with one of these unique ideas:

  • Trader Jon's Exhibit:
    Host a welcome reception for your out-of-town guests at the Trader Jon's Exhibit at the Pensacola Museum of History. Your guests will get to explore the museum and learn about Pensacola's unique history. 
  • Fountain Park:
    Host a cocktail hour or champagne bar at Fountain Park. This idea works great for wedding ceremonies held at Old Christ Church. After the ceremony, have your guests walk across the street to Fountain Park for a cocktail hour while you take your photos.
