31 Oct


I can’t believe the 2016 wedding season is coming to an end.  It’s been a great year, but I still have a lot of fun moments from 2015 to share.  I look forward to showcasing some great new venues and creative ceremony ideas in the months to come.

Making its debut on the island in November 2014, 801 Ocean Drive is the perfect venue for a beach wedding.  With high ceiling, enormous windows and an open floor plan this place was built with large gatherings in mind.  In addition to having a spectacular reception space 801 Ocean Drive also has plenty of space for the wedding party to get ready.  Best of all it’s ocean front.
