I have 35+ years in the Hospitality business. Starting as a Guest Services Manager, dipping my feet as Director of Food and Beverage, continue on as Event Services Manager and on to Director of Sales & Marketing makes me well rounded in all aspects of the business. I love working in paradise and helping everyone make wonderful memories on island time. It's our goal to deliver beyond your expectations! We have continued to grow and enhance our wedding offerings and enjoy working with many of the vendors in the area. Memories at the Speed of Old Florida, are you ready to make some?!

It's always a pleasure to be back at the beautiful Palm Island Resort! With its gentle sea breezes, breathtaking Gulf views, and laid back Old Florida vibe, Palm Island Resort is the perfect destination for your unforgettable wedding day.
Palm Island is a majestic private island resort located just south of Sarasota. The staff are always excellent to work with and we always look forward to playing at Palm Island. Thank you Amy and Lisa for the hospitality and we look forward to many events in the future.
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.
