Amazing venue and amazing people!
Where do I even begin to explain how amazing everyone at the Islander is, and what an incredibly gorgeous venue they offer? I planned a wedding in Islamorada from Georgia, with my husband living half the time in the Keys and half the time in Atlanta....everything about it was crazy. But from the first contact with Denyse, she made everything as easy and smooth as she possibly could. Denyse treats your wedding like her own. Your visions, wishes, wants, needs, and fear and uncertainty all become her visions, wishes, wants and needs, and she completely takes away the fear an uncertainty. She makes you feel like she lives and breathes your wedding from day 1 until the magical night is over. Any time I had a question (or 20), no matter how big or small, even down to the tiniest minute detail that seems silly, she was only a quick phone call away. She ALWAYS responds immediately, and ALWAYS helps. She worked with me on our budget and expectations, read my mind and completed my sentences a few times, and truly made us feel so special. I felt like we made a friend. She is amazing in every way. No wedding planning process is perfect, and life presented a few hurdles during ours (which had nothing to do with the Islander), but Denyse helped in every single way possible and did it flawlessly. She is one of those awesome people that give 1000% and go above and beyond in everything.Sent on 08/20/2019
The other staff members are fantastic to work with as well! Connie and Taylor helped with all of the logistics and coordination of guest rooms and suites, and were always happy to answer my questions. I must have called Connie 5 or 6 times to try to figure out where to put ourselves and family, and she was always so helpful and kind and always had great advice.
Patrick was incredible the day of our wedding. He truly executed on detail, and was always on top of everything. The small touches truly matter, and Patrick definitely pays attention to those. For example, I fully expected to never even see a crumb of an hors d'oeuvre from our cocktail hour, and that was okay. But we were so delighted when Patrick brought out a little plate of everything from our cocktail hour. We were just excited we got to try it and it meant a lot to us he had thought about that. The entire evening went flawlessly....but if something didn't, Patrick and the staff definitely made sure we didn't even notice!
All of our food was sooooo good! We picked a menu and had a plated dinner, which was delivered beautifully. It's difficult to serve a lot of wedding guests all at once and not either lose someone in the process, or have some guests waiting for a while to receive their food. That absolutely did not happen, and everything was hot, fresh, DELICIOUS, and cooked perfectly.
I can't even tell you how truly beautiful the property itself is post remodel. It is absolutely stunning. We spent a lot of time at the Islander before the hurricane so we had no doubt it would be just as beautiful, but we were absolutely floored during our first visit. The rooms are so gorgeous, the attention to detail is unbelievable, and the owner's wife is out there herself literally on her hands and knees in flower beds making sure everything is immaculate and perfect. I was a little nervous about a few details since the property was just finishing up the final touches right around the time of our wedding. Looking back on that, it was clear I completely wasted my time giving that even a second thought, because the entire staff (owner included) paid attention to every detail of how our wedding weekend would look to us and our guests.
It also seemed to me that all of the staff at the resort had been trained with that "Ritz Carlton" white glove style level of service in mind. At check in, the girls are so polite and gracious while offering a glass of prosecco, and any time you pass any staff member they ALWAYS looked you in the eye and greeted you. That level of detail is a big one and everyone should get a pat on the back for that!
The property amenities are amazing too! Our guests had a blast all weekend, and we even ended up having an accidental impromptu pool day with many of our guests the day before our wedding! That was one of everyone's favorite memories from the entire weekend! I can't imagine how many Miami Vice and Rum Punch drinks were made by the bar that day!
It is so nice to get to spend that much time with your guests! To me, that was one of the very best things about a destination wedding at a resort! The Islander was so perfect for that!
I'm sure I have missed a detail to write about during our experience, but suffice it to say literally everything was perfect. I truly mean that. Absolutely everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Denyse, Patrick, Connie, Taylor, and the rest of the Islander staff that had a hand in our wedding weekend. My eyes fill up with tears writing this just thinking about the truly perfect wedding we had. It couldn't have been done without all of you and how much you cared. We are so grateful!

We booked with Islander at the beginning of 2017 for our planned Feb 18 wedding. Due to Hurricane Irma, we postponed our wedding another year. The Islander had suffered a lot of damage and had to close their doors to renovate. When they did open again, we were amazed how gorgeous it was. The landscaping is breath taking. The rooms are gorgeous. There were two weddings the day of ours and the Islander did a fantastic job. The food was outstanding, the service phenomenal. Denyse worked with us for 2 years to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. And we did. The staff at the Islander could not have been any nicer. All our needs were met for our guests including my 100 year old grandfather who they made sure had a ride to every event. Our wedding was so fun and beautiful that all our guests were blown away. Many will be returning for their own vacations! We will be back for every anniversary! Thank you Islander!Sent on 04/01/2019

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue than Guy Harvey. Denyse, Taylor, Patrick, and all the others who helped set up and pull off the best wedding ever were kind, thoughtful, helpful, and best of all fun. I never felt confused or with unanswered questions. They even allowed us to try a new set up for the ceremony and we're full of ideas and helpful suggestions to make it flawless. I can't say enough about our most perfect wedding day. Thank you so much!Sent on 03/27/2017
