Something Blue

Something Blue is representative of love, fidelity, and purity for the future of the couple. There have been many creative and fun ways to incorporate the somethings into the bridal outfit, and something blue is by far our favorite tradition.

Our sanctuary on the Tarpon Basin of Key Largo, Florida is a waterfront property gratefully set with the scenic ocean view and baby blue skies. We love the serenity these colors bring, and furthermore, love to see a wedding on the water’s edge.

There are several ways to incorporate these blue tradition into your wedding, and our wedding concierge can help with acquiring the services you desire. Consider some of our ideas on incorporating blue into your wedding ceremony.

Blue decor

Our wedding concierge and our wedding planning partners can help you uncover the perfect colors for your wedding. Our guests come to Largo to get married on the water. Naturally, we are surrounded by the blues of the sky and the sea. That doesn’t prevent our guests from accenting the space with their treasured color! Even if blue is not on your wedding palette, this color can easily be blended into your outfit, flowers, or wedding decor. 

  • Blue chiffon to run-off our custom driftwood arbor and creating a gently veiled altar.
  • Or dress the arbor with deep blue orchids.
  • A blue table runner and blue tinted mason jars to hold your centerpieces.

Blue Flowers

The sanctuary is already dressed in an array of perched orchids and bougainvillea! Even though our flowers won’t have a moveable role in your wedding, our references can arrange the beautiful bridal bouquet for your ceremony. You can blend a few blues to soften your bridal bouquet. We love these blue flowers: 

  • Delphinium
  • Blue Iris
  • Hydrangeas
  • Blue Orchids

Blue Accessories

Blue jewelry is wonderful near the sea. We suggest aquamarine whose name stems from the Latin root meaning “seawater.” We also love sapphire, whose deep navy blue resembles the ocean’s depths. There is an option of adding blue velvet shoes, or sparkling baby blue sandals. Consider blue undergarments for a more intimate and secret approach to the innocence, love, and fidelity of your matrimony. Dress your groom in a suit with a blue tie and pocket square. You two can share the same flower, one in your bouquet and one on their lapel. Consider dressing your wedding party is a gradient shade of blues! 

There are so many ways to creatively incorporate this tradition into your wedding, and we would be happy to help. However you decide to incorporate blue into your special day, there is an abundance of this color flourishing and bathing our sanctuary in serenity.  

A Winter Wedding in the Florida Keys

Winter is a time for unity and cultivating internal warmth. We naturally take a break from work and relax with our families and friends. Recently, there has been an interest in winter weddings. If you find yourself in colder weather, or you’re run-down by the heat of busy cities, Key Largo is the perfect destination for yours. This island is one of the first in the chain of the Florida Keys. Here you will be stunned by the diverse wildlife and tropical foliage. We invite you down to share a piece of our serenity and positive vibes. If you’re not entirely convinced, we have a few things to say about winter weddings in Florida…

Winter Weddings are Romantic

Family, gratitude, and an abundance of love come with the winter. This season is the host of Christmas, the New Year, and Valentine’s Day. Sentimentality is cultivated, and memories are made with our loved ones. Your wedding is an event to remember, and the weather doesn’t have to get in the way. 

Don’t Worry about the Weather

Winter weddings outside of the warmer climates are usually accompanied by ice-cold weather. Snowfalls are romantic and leave the landscape covered with a smooth layer of downy white. However, snow also comes with an inevitable dampness and brown ice that can accumulate on the roadsides. South Florida, during the winter, has a mild warmth and low humidity. The threats of rain from hurricane season are long gone, and we are left in a state of sweet hibernation and amenity. We maintain and protect our subtropical and thriving ecosystem. At Key Largo, we honor out tropical biosphere. We even receive special visits from dolphins and sea turtles ocean-wide.

Honeymoon Destination

In the southern hemisphere, winter is the season for honeymooners. Largo Sanctuary is a wonderful venue for both your nuptials and a honeymoon. Your special day doesn’t have to end after the reception. The resort is prepared to offer you a unique, and adventurous experience. We host tours through Miami. Or you can party on the famous Duval Street of Key West. If you are more drawn to the great outdoors, we have complete access to the ocean, where you can sail, swim, or scuba with the local animals. After, Key Largo is the diving capital of the world.

Florida has become a prime destination for winter weddings. It offers couples and their families the freedom to spend a few days in the comfort and warmth of a natural tropical climate. Whether you’re from out-of-state, or a local, hosting your wedding ceremony during a Florida Winter will bring luck, fortune, and a cultivated warmth that will last a lifetime. Your family and friends will be most obliged to join you in this alluring sanctuary.

Whatever your honeymoon goals are, you will be sure to find a fit at Largo. We take pride in our inclusive opportunities to partake in the miracles of the earth.

Diving

Key Largo is the diving capital of the world! We cater to the experienced scuba divers and novice snorkelers. The Gulf of Mexico lends a vast territory that you can explore. Our guests meet a diverse wildlife, from dolphins to sea turtles. We invite you to take to the depths where shipwrecks have settled along the ocean floor. Key Largo is home to a fleet of sunken ships that date as far back as 1733. Among them are the Spanish Galleon wrecks, and the US Coast Guard Cutter The Duane. The various wreck sites invite different levels of experience. The Duane is for the more experienced and licensed scuba divers. Yet, The Benwood and the City of Washington sunk in shallow water. These are accessible to snorkelers! The sunken ships have become home to coral reefs and abundant wildlife that animate the area. There is no better way to become one with the sea than diving head first into it.

Boating

The most simple vehicles we offer are kayaks and paddle boards. Our visitors love to use these boats for sunrise cruises along the coast. We maintain 2 boats of a greater caliber. “The Dream” is a 42-foot sailboat that carries up to 6 passengers. We often take her out for sunset sails. The Dream is also available for an all-day cruise with our Largo Captain. The 21-ft 200 horsepower boat goes on ecosystem tours of the Everglades National Park. You can go fishing in the backcountry, or travel to a popular snorkeling location. This boat can accommodate up to 4 passengers. If you seek deep-sea fishing adventures we can set you up with a local private charter.

Wildlife

Experience South Florida’s wildlife outside of our private sanctuary! Our Everglades tour takes you to the middle of Florida’s most important ecosystem. You can discover the natural disposition of local alligators, tropical birds, and plant-life. Or we can set you up to swim with the dolphins on the Gulf of Mexico. Key Largo is diverse, but Florida specific… a trip south without this exposure wouldn’t be the same.

Newlywed couples get immersed the water culture and wildlife we endow. We encourage all explorers to join us! There is a lot to see and do. The start of your lives together should be an amazing adventure.
