We love planning weddings at the fabulous Palm Island Resort. The ferry to Palm Island (also known as Don Pedro Island) is just a few short miles down the road from our office, so we feel right at home there. It would be hard to imagine a more beautiful location for a private beach wedding. Here are some photos from the recent weddings we coordinated (and DJed) at the resort.
Manasota Key Weddings & The Waverly Receptions
Manasota Key, a barrier island connected to the Englewood, FL mainland via two bridges, boasts of several beautiful wedding locations. The island is rimmed in a variety of public and private beaches, many of which are ideal for beach ceremonies. One of our favorite venues on the key is The Waverly, whose dining room offers panoramic views of Englewood Beach.
Boca Grande Wedding
What a privilege it is to plan weddings in Boca Grande, an exclusive community on Gasparilla Island. The beautiful homes, secluded beaches, Banyan tree lined streets, and charming “old Florida” architecture combine to make Boca Grande a romantic, upscale wedding destination.
Wedding at the Plantation Golf & Country Club (Venice, FL)
The Plantation is a wonderful wedding venue in the Venice area. The gorgeous wall of windows in their banquet hall provides a stunning view of the surrounding greenery by day, and by night they reflect the shimmering lights, adding to the mood. We hope you enjoy the following selection of images from the wedding of Carla and Brad, one of our very sweet couples and beautiful families.
Wedding at Maxine Barritt Park (Venice, FL)
Maxine Barritt Park is a casual beachfront venue adjacent to Sharkey’s on the Pier in Venice, Florida. The large pavilion is ideal for an outdoor reception, and the beach is just steps away for the ceremony. The Venice Fishing Pier’s close proximity also presents an opportunity for creative photos!
Venice Yacht Club Reception (Venice, FL)
Venice Yacht Club is another of the wonderful local venues we recommend. Please browse the photos below to catch some glimpses of a recent wedding reception we coordinated and DJed at the club. We hope you enjoy them!
Wedding at Historic Spanish Point (Osprey, FL)
Historic Spanish Point, located on Little Sarasota Bay in Osprey, Florida, is lush waterfront preserve showcasing native Florida plants. There are several picturesque venue locations throughout the property, including the quaint, pioneer-era Mary’s Chapel and the romantic Sunken Garden and Pergola. Spanish Point is the perfect choice any couple seeking a venue teeming with historical significance and old Florida charm.
Wedding at Boca Royale Golf & Country Club (Englewood, FL)
Boca Royale is a lovely country club venue with various sites to accommodate ceremonies and receptions — both indoors and outdoors. The lush golf course provides numerous scenic photo spots, and we love the way the large windows in the dining rooms usher in the light and ambiance of the outdoors.
Wedding in Downtown Englewood, FL
Besides the beautiful beaches, downtown Englewood, Florida is full of locations offering a scenic waterfront backdrop for a wedding. The following photos from Sylvia and Garrett’s wedding took place at one of these hidden gems.
Wedding at Heron Creek Golf & Country Club (North Port, FL)
For couples seeking an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception, Heron Creek Golf & Country Club is an excellent choice of venue. The club is a hidden gem in the middle of North Port, away from the coast but not too far for visiting guests to enjoy the beaches. Heron Creek offers lovely dining rooms and ceremony site options for events of all sizes, while the grounds, replete with natural beauty, provide numerous photo opportunities. Here is a selection of photos from Diane and Chris’ recent wedding at Heron Creek.
Wedding at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center (Punta Gorda, FL)
Offering sweeping views of the harbor between the bridges, the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center is a spectacular local wedding venue. Outdoor ceremonies on their expansive lawn present a picturesque alternative to the beach that still feels like Florida. Receptions are held indoors in a spacious ballroom with floor to ceiling windows allowing for plenty of natural light. We had a wonderful time coordinating and decorating Amanda and Darren’s wedding at this upscale Punta Gorda location.
Barn Weddings in Arcadia, FL
If you’re looking for a wedding venue with a gorgeous rural setting and loads of country charm, Arcadia offers several perfect locations options. We love planning and decorating these rustic-but-elegant celebrations.
Wedding at Pier 22 (Bradenton, FL)
Not only is Pier 22 “Bradenton’s landmark waterfront dining destination”, it serves as an upscale wedding venue with historic charm. Built in 1928, the building’s second floor dining room features chandeliers and architectural accents that hearken back to a bygone era, while offering picturesque views of the Manatee River. The yachts docked at the adjacent Twin Dolphins Marina also provide a nautical backdrop for photos.
Fort Myers Wedding
Wes & Nohely’s wedding was held at The Verandah Club in Fort Myers. DJ Steve was the DJ for the outdoor ceremony and the indoor reception, and we also provided Wedding Day Coordination services. Nohely was a very special bride, as we had worked with her family previously for her sister’s Quinceñera. What an honor to be called on again for this event. Thank you to Bohemian Road Photography for the photos that so beautifully captured this special day.
Orlando Resort Weddings
When we’re not planning beach weddings, we also enjoy the opportunity to work with couples tying the knot at Florida’s many beautiful hotels and resorts. As one of the state’s most popular destinations, Orlando is full of elegant wedding venues. The resorts feature gorgeous ballrooms and manicured grounds, making for stunning photo ops. Resort weddings offer the best of both indoor and outdoor worlds, many hotels providing options for indoor ceremonies and receptions in climate-controlled environments while presenting spectacular views of tropical scenery through floor-to-ceiling windows. Working as a wedding planner and DJ for the Orlando resort weddings featured below was truly a delight.
Yes, on occasion, we DO travel…
