Having a multi-day wedding celebration, creates a memorable experience for you and your guests, which is why destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. What makes a great destination wedding location? Beautiful ceremony, cocktail, and reception locations, wonderful menu options, great guest accommodations, and a variety of activities for guests to participate in all weekend long.
Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, FL checks all of these off the list!
I had the pleasure of spending three days at the beautiful beachfront resort to see all the options that offer for weddings. One of the best parts is the variety of venue options available. There is truly something for every type of wedding style. For those beach lovers, the resort boasts 5 different beachfront options which can accommodate between 150 to 500 guests.
The Lodge Lawn, Pool Deck, and Tent area all provide stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean under a white chiffon draped tent.
If you are wanting an outdoor space, the resort has three options. Although all have different features and capacity, they all share the stunning ocean view.
Morning-after brunches are very popular for destination weddings. The resort’s Ocean Event Lawn is great for ceremony and receptions but can also be used as an ocean view location to have your guests enjoy a delicious brunch before they return home. Interactive food stations, such as nitro-smoothies, are a fun way to keep the celebration going.
If you love the idea of being by the beach but aren’t looking to have an outdoor celebration, Hammock Beach Resort has two beautiful ballrooms to keep you out of the elements. The design and décor of these spaces work well with any wedding style as they do not have bright clashing colors. Wrought iron chandeliers, high ceilings, and mahogany details create a romantic atmosphere for wedding guests to enjoy. There is also a great space for cocktail hour in the foyer next to the ballroom.
Not sure if you want to be outside or in? The Conservatory Clubhouse is a great option to bring the outdoors in. The venue’s glass atrium provides stunning views of a Natural Florida Preserve and the Tom Watson Signature Conservatory Golf Course. You and your guests can enjoy privacy as it is tuck away from the main resort. This space can accommodate up to 100 guests which makes it perfect for small weddings. However, it is a wonderful rehearsal dinner option if your wedding guest list is larger. There are also stunning bridal and groom suites on site to prepare for the day.
The resort has a bunch of options when it comes to accommodations. Their suites are beautiful and very spacious with one to four-bedroom options for small and large families. If you are looking to go for a more luxurious option, Hammock Beach Resort has their Ocean Tower Suites. This option boasts 2,800 square feet, a full kitchen, three bedrooms, and ample balcony space to soak in the amazing ocean view. These are also wonderful as a getting ready room the morning of the wedding. The resort even has a wonderful hair and makeup team to assist with your wedding day look.
All of these options are located in the main towers of the resort. However, if you are wanting to be a little closer to the ocean, the Lodge has over 20 traditional hotel style room with balconies to help you breathe in that wonderful salty air.
All of the wedding packages include complimentary wedding night accommodations as well.
Hammock Beach Resort has so many activities for guests. From golfing to surfing to hiking and biking or just strolls on the beautiful beach, the resort allows you to create a fully customized experience. You can see some of the activities here. Just a short drive north is Marineland, the world’s first oceanarium. This dolphin experience gives you the opportunity to interact with these fun, intelligent mammals, as well as learn about other local marine life. It is a great destination for adults and children alike.
