The Orange Grove is one of the ceremony (or dining) locations at this luxury destination wedding venue and we can’t get over how lush and private it feels. Just imagine how delicious it smells when the orange blossoms are in bloom!

The Palmera Lounge is an intimate covered outdoor ceremony space that can also be set up to host cocktail hour; the large fountain has a special glow at night that we love.

Another reason we’re smitten with this luxury destination wedding venue is the many unique photo ops- trickling fountains in tucked-away courtyards, roaring outdoor fireplaces, and original tile and artwork along with nearly 300 towering Royal Palm trees make the property a delightful surprise at every turn.
