The J/I Wedding at Good Haven House


S and B were married on a beautiful autumn day last October.


It was a bit rainy that week so they decided to take no chances and set up a beautiful tent on the lawn between the house and the shore.


No detail was left to chance and even the cake was absolutely lovely.


As you can tell, everyone was joyous over the wedding.


Especially these two!

Thank you so much, S and B, for having your wedding at Good Haven House.
It was an honor.



The S/T Wedding at Good Haven House

Jenifer and Jerry were the very first couple to get married at Good Haven House.

Jerry is a Pensacola boy who grew up fishing and crabbing in Perdido Bay.
He even persuaded his lovely bride to cast a line with him the morning of the wedding.

Now that's TRUE LOVE :)


They had an intimate ceremony with a small circle of family and and close friends attending.

J and J looking happy!

They were kind enough to send me these great shots to share with you all.

Certified Humane

As we've so publicly stated on our web site, We Love To Eat! I will say it again, We Love To Eat! My husband and I are both in the Food Service industry. We both like to cook mostly because we love to eat. And a big part of our enjoyment of Good Haven House is getting to enjoy regional southern food when we're here. BBQ, fried chicken, gulf shrimp, gumbo, hush puppies, pecan pie.........Mmm, Mmmm, Mmmmm, I'm making myself hungry just writing about it!

*Meets the Humane Farm Animal Care program standards, which includes nutrious diet without antibiotics or hormones, animals raised with shelter, resting areas, sufficient space and the ability to engage in natural behaviours.

Until recently, I never thought much about where my food actually comes from (unless I forgot to water the tomatoes in the garden!) But it's come to my attention that the way food comes to our markets and tables is not benign.

Please, whenever possible, use locally grown and Certified Humane food products.
Factory farming is harmful to not only the animals that are made to endure it and the farm workers forced to use these methods, but to human health and our society as a whole.

These practices are hard to think about and look at. But we DO, as individuals and as a society, have the power to take action and change the way food comes to our table.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" -Gandhi

Thank You, Susan
