    Beautiful beach wedding weekend

    We had the most beautiful wedding at Palm Island! Our friends and family enjoyed spending the weekend at the beach celebrating. We had gorgeous pictures from the beach to the reception tent.

    Perfect Gulf Coast Wedding

    My wife and I got married at the Palm Island Resort on 2/23/19. There is no real way to fully understand how beautiful this place is without seeing it for yourself. The ferry ride separating Palm Island from the mainland may only take a minute, but it feels like it takes you miles away from everything else. We were looking for a place to get away from it all and just focus on each other and our closest friends and family, and I can't imagine finding a better place. We had around 50 people for our wedding, but the resort could certainly handle 3x that. Some of the guests enjoyed a golf outing, others went on a guided kayak tour where manatees came up to the kayaks and allowed you to touch them. During our ceremony on Stump Pass Beach, dolphins could be seen jumping in the Gulf. If I made up a story about what the wedding should have been like...... it would have been what happened. I cannot recommend this place strongly enough.

    We rented out the Rum Bay Restaurant from 10:00-12:00 for an after party since we knew the group would still want a place to play after the reception was over. That option was a really great addition to the event.

    Make sure to arrange golf carts for your vendors for the day of the wedding as no cars are allowed on the resort.

    We just got married on Palm Island on 6/2/2018. We had 44 people for our destination wedding and it was amazing! Such a beauty’s resort and the staff is beyond helpful and friendly. I worked with Kacey to plan our wedding and he was extremely responsive, helpful and had great suggestions when needed too. On the day of the ceremony Kacey had everything under control and it all went exactly as planned. We chose to have the reception inside to avoid the heat and it was just perfect. The food was AMAZING and they took care of everyone! I loved having my guests all in one place on the island and enjoyed spending time with them a couple of days before and after. Everyone at this resort, from the Front Desk ladies to the staff at the Rum Bar, constantly went above and beyond which I feel like I’d just their normal. You won’t be disappointed with location and Kacey will take great care of you through out the whole process.

I had the great pleasure of officiating a wedding at Palm Island Resort this last October. The surroundings were wonderful, pristine beaches and old Florida charm. But, it was the staff that really made the day. Professional and accommodating. If you are planning a wedding don't hesitate to contact their staff. You will be well taken care of. I look forward to working with them again.
