Doree and Tony’s Little Palm Island wedding was brought to me by Julie Shrek of Simply You Weddings. Julie and I had worked together many times over the years that I lived in Florida, and even though I had since moved to New York we continued to work together (albeit not as frequently as I’d like!). When Doree and Tony were planning their Little Palm Island destination wedding Julie thought we’d be a good fit – and she was wrong. We were a GREAT fit from the start, and it was with great anticipation that I flew to Florida for their three days of wedding coverage. From the welcome party at the pool to the rehearsal dinner, the entire wedding day to the day after brunch, every moment of every day was infused with love, laughter, light, and indescribable joy.
No pets. No children under the age of 18. No telephones. No televisions. Sound relaxing? It is. Little Palm Island, located just off of Little Torch Key in the Florida Keys, is a quiet, understated, luxurious getaway unlike any I’d ever experienced. There is a reason it was named a “Gold List” Number One Resort in Florida by Conde Nast in 2013, “Extraordinary Perfection” by Zagat, one of the best honeymoon locations in the US by Brides Magazine, and many, many more. Doree and Tony rented out this private island for a long weekend getaway, providing their guests with tours, trips, sunning, dancing, and exquisite dining.
