Clearly, the rodent we call Phil in Central, Pa. needs to revamp his meteorologist predictions. So, if the thought of frost on your windshield or yet another snowflake is enough to toss your hot cocoa and swear off footie pajamas, perhaps it's time to flirt with the idea of a destination wedding. It's okay to hug the first palm tree you see. We sympathize. That is why we are highlighting four destination wedding venues in South Florida that offer accommodations for you AND your guests (they want to escape too, trust me)!
First on our South Florida tour is Cheeca Lodge & Spa in Islamorada within the Florida Keys. The venue has the Atlantic Ocean on one side, the Florida Bay on the other and white pristine sand in between. Imagine an oceanfront ceremony followed by starlit reception its Tahitian-inspired Spa Island and decks surrounded by towering palm trees. Cheeca Lodge & Spa offers 214 rooms and suites to serve as an oasis of relaxation while in Islamorada.
