Paul and Magda,
This was our first destination wedding and we were so fortunate Gina and
Eric chose Coconut Cove Resort to fulfill their ideal wedding experience.
Many of our guests chose to enjoy a long weekend on Islamorada because of
such a wonderful location. As a result, family and friends gathered
throughout the weekend evenings to share reports on the activities of the
day. We had stories of diving, fishing, touring, bathing and 'just plain
Coconut Cove Resort became our extended home base throughout the long
weekend leading up to Sunday evening's wedding ceremony. We couldn't have
had better help from all of you at the resort to make all our guests feel
Paul, your ceremony on the beach was so personal and suited to our bride and
groom. They wanted a relaxing, tropical setting with "island time" pace and
so it was.
Magda, all your flower arrangements and bouquets were so beautifully created
and provided the perfect floral accents both on the beach and around the
reception area. We all await the photography you produced because just
seeing the pre-production setups make the end result so excitedly
By the many reports from our guests, the food choices served were a big hit.
The chicken and fish got rave reviews and all the sides were wonderfully
delicious. Kudos to the cake baker of the key lime wedding cake. It had to
be the most tasty wedding cake we have ever had and were lucky enough to
have enjoyed some leftovers!
Your DJ did a great job as well. Our suggestion would be to perhaps
move his staging to the pool side of the Tiki hut to allow for better
natural air flow off the beach onto the dance floor; or perhaps a ceiling
fan installed over the dance floor area would work. Many guests got too
warm to dance after the initial introductions, but they did enjoy the music
anyway as background to conversation.
Thank you to Rick for all his good natured assistance throughout the
weekend. He gave great advice for local eateries for our guests and kept
the coffee flowing throughout the day. The Island Grill provided a great
place for an informal gathering for many of our guests on Friday evening to
meet and get to know each other which then carried over through the weekend.
Thank you to Pam in Housekeeping for taking such good care of our bride and
groom and many of our guests.
Thank you to the ladies who set up for the reception; they were very
accommodating with a few special requests and made our reception area look
like a tropical fairyland.
Paul and Magda, you certainly do your best to make your weddings the best
they can be and we look forward to enjoying your hospitality again soon.
