The Caribbean Resort is a perfect venue for your extended wedding weekend! Conveniently located in Islamorada, this hidden gem is tucked away off the beaten path from US 1.  It offers proximity to shopping and dining but feels like a private island all your own. You and up to 94 of your closest friends and family can stay on the grounds for the entire weekend making the wedding festivities last for a few days instead of a few short hours. Many clients also choose to host other events on the property, making use of the entirety of the grounds during the wedding weekend. For example, the Rehearsal Dinner around the pool, the wedding near the water, and a farewell brunch on the deck of the main house...the possibilities are endless! With houses that make you feel like you have your own private estate, The Caribbean Resort offers amazing space for wedding morning, where wedding party and family can mingle around while getting ready, and not be right on top of one another. This setup also allows the men and women to be in separate homes or even on seperate sides of the property all together.

9. We make sure the day runs on schedule. The successful execution of your wedding day timeline relies upon the mutual coordination and efforts of many different wedding vendors and professionals working together seamlessly. A wedding planner understands how each vendor’s responsibilities overlap and rely upon other vendors expected performance and they act as General, coordinating the complexities of a time line full of moving parts while you focus on getting ready for your special day.

8. We've done this before. In most instances, this will be your first time planning a wedding. A rooted and established wedding planner has likely been in the wedding industry for years, having planned possibly hundreds of weddings, and are industry experts when it comes to wedding day protocol, etiquette, and what it takes to put on a successful event of this magnitude. It’s not just an interest of ours or something we think would be fun to do;  this is our full time job, not a hobby or part time job and because of that, we take our job very seriously.

7. We are More than a Venue Coordinator.  Once you book your wedding site, you will normally be in touch with the wedding venues on-site wedding coordinator to help with logistics for your wedding day. This is NOT the same as having a wedding planner. The on-site coordinator is usually the catering and sales manager for the venue, whose job it is to ensure that everything with regards to the facilities runs smoothly. They are very helpful, but are not responsible for helping your creative ideas flow and do not even begin to provide the scope of services an independent wedding planner will provide.  Hiring your own wedding planner will help with big picture planning and that person will coordinate with all of your vendors, including the Venue Coordinator, to make sure everything runs smoothly.
