The Island | 30a wedding venues I love | The Island, Fort Walton Beach, Florida

I love discovering new 30a wedding venues.

The Island is located in Fort Walton Beach,Florida.

I remember the first time I went to Fort Walton Beach.

I was so taken back with how utterly stunning it was.


When I toured The Island resort, I was super impressed.

The entrance is a huge wooden archway topped with white.

It’s very welcoming.


The lobby and entrance is awesome.

It had gorgeous furniture and I just wanted to sit and get all comfy on the couch.

Which I did, by the way.

They had a hallway where the ceiling was covered in white paper umbrellas.

It was so dope.

My favorite thing was seeing all the vintage black and white portraits that were framed in the lobby/main areas.

The Island has so many options for venues and reception spaces.

I’m talking 7 different options.

You can take your pick from a beach ceremony, to a intimate indoor ceremony.

Their indoor venue options are the perfect plan b for inclement weather.

I don’t know how you feel, but I’m always down with a plan b just in case!

You can also have your food served from their food truck.

A food truck guys!

The Island offers packages if you and your guests want to be entertained the entire wedding weekend.

They can help set you up for dolphin tours, jet skies, kayaks, paddle boards- you name it basically!


Every bride that comes to visit Brooke, meets her in her gorgeous office.

She helps them every step of the way plan their perfect wedding day.

I had coffee with Brooke, and let me tell you- she’s fabulous.

I wish I had her when I got married.

I have a feeling I would have been so much less stressed.


The Island in Fort Walton Beach, Florida is the perfect 30a wedding venue for your destination wedding.

Water sports, a plan b and seven venues to choose from.

Does it get much better?
