Monique and Andre's Tropical Reception

379490

Our "Surprise" Tropical wedding weekend was great! Fort Myers is a beautiful city and the beaches are the absolute best. The weather was perfect the entire weekend. Our families thought we eloped in Mexico and they were just coming to our reception to help us celebrate our new marriage. Not so, we surprised them all having our actual wedding in beautiful Fort Myers. Oh, and Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. We'd highly recommend using it!

Dexter and his steel pan drum gave us the Caribbean feeling we were going for. He is AMAZING on his drums. He made our cocktail hour exceptional.

Rev. Salter was such a treat. He did an awesome job over our ceremony and the unlimited consultations were awesome. Its hard to plan a destination without doing everything face to face but they really put us at ease and did the ceremony exactly the way we wanted.

We rented the Natural Chiavari Chairs with cushions from Brelex and my goodness, they were sooooo comfortable. The quality of the chairs were superb and the cost was unbelievable. They set them up & picked them up as planned

Karen the Banquet Manager at Royal Palm is the absolute BEST. She took care of everything and was extremely accomodating. We chose the Royal Palm becuase of other rave reviews karen had received and every word said about her paled in comparison. The Yacht CLub was transformed into a tropical oasis for our event and we are still in awe of our entire wedding. THe sunset pictures our photographer captured there are MARVELOUS. The food was DELICIOUS, the service was by far the absolute best!! My best friend has advised us she will be having her wedding at the Royal Palm Yacht club too!!

Hotels/Accommodations

Tara, Liz and the entire staff made our stay awesome. Our guests took over 40 rooms for the weekend and all complimented how clean and nice the hotel was. We made welcome bags to be passed out to our guest as they checked in and the hotel staff took then right over without a problem. They helped me plan & choose a restaurant for our welcome dinner Friday night and even set our gusts up in a conference room for our farewell brunch on Sunday morning. The daily breakfast that was included in our room rates was an awesome hit. It wasn't our ordinary continental breakfast but they prepared omelettes to your liking, waffles, fresh squeezed FL orange juice. We will definitely stay here again.
