From the first moment we arrived when checking out possible venues in the area we knew that the Islander Guy Harvey Outpost in Islamorada would be the perfect place for our daughter's wedding in Paradise. Even without an appointment, Denyse was so welcoming and took time to show us around and offer advice and ideas. She held our hands all the way, for six months by phone and e.mail prior to the event and literally on the day. She was able to see it all through our eyes and knew exactly what we needed, even before we did. Taylor did a wonderful job coordinating rooms and guests. With a casual welcome party the night before and the actual ceremony and reception the next day Patrick, Joe and Paul made both events go so seamlessly. This team of professionals know just how to blend friendliness and professionalism. 5 out of 5 is not a high enough score. Thank you, so much.

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue than Guy Harvey. Denyse, Taylor, Patrick, and all the others who helped set up and pull off the best wedding ever were kind, thoughtful, helpful, and best of all fun. I never felt confused or with unanswered questions. They even allowed us to try a new set up for the ceremony and we're full of ideas and helpful suggestions to make it flawless. I can't say enough about our most perfect wedding day. Thank you so much!

Karly Campbell, Patrick, Taylor, Loulou and entire Islander staff were wonderful for our destination wedding in September 2016. The Islander has it all for a wedding and reception or just a great vacation in the Keys. Karly was incredible and handled all the coordination and vendors for our big day. As a bride I expected to have to take care of a lot of things but Karly handled it all. It was the most stress free experience. The wedding turned out gorgeous on the beach and the reception on the terrace was a blast. All our of guests loved the food. The rooms, pools and restaurant were great for having so many people travel in. I would recommend Islander and Karly and crew to anyone looking for a beautiful destination wedding in the Keys.

I spent a week in Islamorada looking at potential wedding venues. I checked out pretty much everywhere possible and absolutely fell in love with the Islander! The location was perfect. I was really looking for some where relaxed that our guests would love. There’s so much to do at the Islander. The beach is huge and gorgeous, the pools are amazing and the Tiki Bar area is super fun! I’m so happy I had the wedding of my dreams here! Working with Connie on our room block was SUCH a pleasure. I even stopped by wedding week to give her a big hug. She was so helpful! Karly and Denyse were fantastic to work with! They made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding and the food was sooo good! Patrick was amazing! We met a few days before the wedding and I knew I was in good hands after we all did the final walk through! I can’t wait to come back to the Islander!! It’s a perfect vacation spot and an even better place for a wedding!!!

We had the wedding of our dreams at The Islander a few weeks ago and our guests are still commenting on what a beautiful venue it was and how fantastic the food was! Connie and Corie were both great to work with and were always an email or a phone call away, which was great as we are not local in the Keys. They always made me feel special and happy to answer whatever questions I had. Connie in the Group Sales was very accomodating and understanding when helping me with our room block and I do not have enough nice things to say about Corie, the banquet/catering manager. She was amazing to work with and helped put together our special day. (And we can't forget Patrick, who was on duty the night of our wedding and tended to our every need!) Thank you all for an amazing night!

We had our destination wedding and reception here. They could not be more accommodating and helpful throughout the entire planning process. Corie always responding quickly to all of my questions and we were even upgraded at no additional charge the week before the wedding! The location is stunning and so romantic!!!

I just can't say enough about how great this venue is, we looked one year prior to our date and we knew right away this was the place for us. We were not dissapointed, the Islander Staff, especially Corie were so attentive to our needs and were ready to provide anything that was needed. Our wedding was small, only 30 people, so we were married on the beach in front of the kissing palm trees and our reception was on the tiki bar patio. Everything was so beautiful! I added bistro lights over the area, so glad I did, it looked amazing! The food was incredible, everyone loved the seviche. Our bartenders were a blast. Everyone took such great care of us and the setting is just perfect. I will cherish every memory from that day. Thank you Islander, we will be back on our anniversary.

We are so happy with how our wedding turned out at the Islander Resort. The staff were very friendly and met with me about four times in person prior to the wedding to discuss all of the details. They were very professional and gave me all the information I needed to plan my destination wedding. I was surprised by how attentive all the staff were at our rehearsal dinner and on our wedding day. They make sure everything is how you want it and they make you feel special. The resort had just been turned into a Guy Harvey Outpost and my Husband loves everything Guy Harvey, so we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. We had such a great time on our wedding day and all our family and friends did as well. We are thankful the Islander Resort could make our day so special. I would definitely recommend having your wedding at the Islander Resort.

We never knew the beauty that existed behind that landmark sign that we had seen for years. As soon as we drove in, we knew it was the venue for us. They had multiple sites to choose from on the property, but we chose to get married on the sand. It was the perfect spot for us with a beautiful view that was far enough away from the rest of the resort to add privacy to the venue as well. Our reception was in the convention hall, and it was PERFECT! The staff was amazing and provided everything we could possibly need. Diane was very attentive and kept in touch throughout the planning process and anything and everything we could need was taken care of by Corie on the day of. The staff made sure that my husband and I were served first as well as our parents and catered to us throughout the night. We could not have asked for a better night and are thrilled with our choice of venue.

We spent the week ahead of our wedding here, and loved it! That guy Vern at the bar was very personable and remembers who you are like it's easy. We had a one bedroom suite so we could entertain the day of without having to make people sit on the bed. Our wedding was very relaxed and the informal rehearsal dinner poolside was so fun! Definately try the Cuban sandwich and fried pickles! The day of was wonderful and if you are ever placed right next door to the "other" bride of the day, don't worry. We saw each other's wedding parties but that was it, no body got in anyone's way. Corie was wonderful with the details of the reception set up. We only had 30 guests, but we didn't feel overwhelmed in the ground floor ballroom. The bartender was quick and friendly and didn't skimp. The buffet was set up in the entry way, which kept the noise and "show" to a minimum. There was so much good food! Most went back for seconds, some only for the fish which was so beautifully done it was the first thing to run out. We decided to use the resort's cake, which was delicious! A great alternative if you aren't a fan of fondant. The resort also worked well with my other vendors, helped the band with the beach setup/power source and gave all day for the ceremony set up. There weren't any morning weddings that weekend.
