With your toes in the sand, the ocean’s light breeze in your hair, and freshly catered seafood on your plate, Ibis Bay Beach Resort just became Key West’s most idyllic wedding venue. The resort’s new wedding packages, introduced today, offer couples an entirely customized wedding event with delicious food fromThe Stoned Crab, an on-site planning team, and the most genuine Key West experience for any couple who wants to embody the island’s culture, vibe, and beauty on their special day.
“As Key West’s original 1956 resort, our new wedding experience is not cookie-cutter,” Ibis Bay Beach Resort co-owner and general manager Tony Osborn said today. “It’s eclectic. Our vibe is funky and our décor is unconventional. Our resort is the perfect wedding venue for a couple looking to go above and beyond what’s expected, and to truly embody what Key West is about.”
At the gateway to the Caribbean, the resort’s private water front offers enchanting views, a sand beach and a channel with direct water access for those who wish to bring boats or jet skis. With a picturesque pool area and an on-site restaurant that has just been rated #2 in the Florida Keys by Zagat, couples have the option to host the ceremony and reception at the marina, beach, pool, dock or restaurant. “Each location on the property has a distinct personality and vibe,” Osborn said, “but no matter where the wedding is held on property, you will be receiving high quality professional service from a team that genuinely cares about making your day extraordinary.”
Located adjacent to Ibis Bay Beach Resort, The Stoned Crab restaurant offers Key West’s freshest seafood. Each day, Key West fishermen deliver a variety of local fish to the restaurant. “With a full bar, experienced staff and a friendly open-air atmosphere, The Stoned Crab is the perfect venue for seafood lovers,” Osborn added. “Couples who want to rent out the restaurant for their reception also have the option to do so.”
Ibis Bay Beach Resort also offers a unique level of customization for weddings: their on-site event team can assist in any planning needed, no matter the task, depending on the couple’s needs. To better get to know the couple before the planning process begins, the team will send a personal questionnaire that explores their tastes, interests and passions.
“Our ‘creative brief’ helps us to give the bride and groom the most customized wedding planning experience possible,” said Ibis Bay Beach Resort Special Events Director Kate Sullivan. “We want to make their special day as perfect as it can be! Our work is not black-and-white. A wedding day is a wonderful life changing event and our feeling is that no two weddings should be alike. The special day should be as unique as the marvelous couple.”
What’s more, Ibis Bay Beach Resort offers exclusive activity packages for the bride, groom and guests before and after the wedding. With an exceptional full service concierge team on-site 12 plus hours per day, guests staying at the resort can plan water sports excursions, fishing charters, history tours, daytime and sunset cruises, and more. Ibis Bay is also the only provider of night-boarding tours in Key West. “Night-boarding with friends and family before or after the wedding is the perfect way to experience Key West’s diverse marine life,” Osborn said. “It’s a great activity to enjoy with those closest to you.”
Ibis Bay Beach Resort also offers exclusive packages for the bride, groom and guests to stay at the hotel. Special Shuttle services can also be arranged in addition to pre and post wedding adventures. For more information on rates, packages, and more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
