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.

 

 

A Honeymoon for Cultural Experiences

 

Key Largo is the longest island of Key West, and it part of what we call the Upper Keys. The tropical climate dictates our beach lifestyle and diving culture. There is something for the luxury travelers and the thrill seekers. The island even caters to those of us who enjoy a stroll under a canopy of foliage. The small beach-town lifestyle is laid back. We enjoy long sunsets, water sports and our proximity to nature. We live a life of leisure, where our work is play. Join us on the sanctuary, we are located between two popular South Florida destinations rich and vibrant in diversity and culture. Our concierge can arrange a tour with private transportation to either location. Whether or not day trips are appealing to you, the way of our private cove will surely offer you a retreat from the norm.

A Cultural Trip to Miami

Miami is rich in Latin American and Caribbean culture. Our excursions place you in the mecca of the city, whether you want to party in the art-deco architecture of South Beach or admire the arts. Miami is home to a diverse culture. You can sip on a cafecito from the local bodega before shopping Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent in the Design District. If luxury shopping is not your taste, you can support local artisans and shop among the eclectic treasures at the Miami Flea. The street art in Wynwood Arts District is a popular attraction, and its blocks away from Little Haiti. A few miles southwest, you can experience Calle Ocho in Little Havana. Our concierge will plan your dinner on Ocean Avenue so you can enjoy the nightlife of South Beach. There is a lot of culture in this wide city, and its only an hour north of Largo. 

A Cultural Trip Down to Duval St.

The Southernmost point of Key West is also a popular destination.  Duval Street is the home to countless parades, celebrations, and parties. You may wander into the Zombie Bike Fest or an Art Festival. There is always something happening down south. Key West is a mix of Islanders and North Americans that escaped a brick and mortar lifestyle. This diversity creates an inclusive society for artists, travelers, and divers alike. The people and the food are also laid back. We like to enjoy the little things in life. The Florida Keys are an inviting destination for new couples. With culture, adventure, and serenity all in one place. The best part of this all is that Largo Resort is the perfect retreat after an exciting and busy day trip to a bigger city.
