It’s Spotlight day, where we introduce you to incredible Orlando wedding vendors and share the stories behind these companies who help Wedding Venue Map couples have their best wedding day.
Hiring the right wedding venue is so important on your wedding day. The venue is the backdrop of every moment, every picture, and every memory.
It gives us great pleasure to introduce this week’s venue spotlight, Kayli Coleman of Paradise Cove.
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is seeing the couple come back down the aisle in “awe” of each other. The look they have on their faces as newlyweds is something that brings goosebumps to my arms every time.
What fun fact would people be surprised to learn about you?
I got married at Paradise Cove last year and it was the most amazing day ever. All the vendors we selected made the day seamless and I would do it over and over again.
What is the best compliment you’ve received from your clients?
“Magical,” “heartwarming,” and “meaningful” are words that come to mind as most little girls dream about their perfect wedding day and, let’s face it, ladies are looking for the same details! Paradise Cove, Kayli Benjamin, and her team created the most enchanting day for my husband and me, as well as our family and guests. Since that amazing day, I have had several people tell me, more than once, how truly special they felt our day was; a celebration of love that was felt by everyone in attendance. The planning of our big day was a breeze; at a time that is generally chaotic and stressful, Paradise Cove made it so easy! The location is classy and refined yet comfortable and relaxing. Kayli is so accommodating, she always made me feel at ease and, honestly, “at home” at a time when nerves can take over. Every detail is taken care of, Kayli serves as an event coordinator to relieve you of the stress of finding quality vendors. She has several to choose from and based on your vision she tailors the event to meet your expectations. She asked me to share pictures of what I envisioned for the day and that was it! She created exactly what I was dreaming of for each and every detail. The price for Paradise Cove is extremely affordable in comparison to other venues, yet the quality is exceptional. Even the cake was superb, adding the proverbial icing to our cake for the day!
What is the most unique service/product you offer?
Arrive at your ceremony in a stylish speedboat or exit on the calm waters underneath the moonlight. Roast marshmallows by the fire pit as you relax in a rainbow-hued Adirondack chair.
What types of events do you specialize in?
We specialize in weddings that range from 10-300 guests. We also can host birthday parties, engagement parties, anniversary parties, and graduation parties. During the day we love hosting corporate style brunches and luncheons. Oh, and clients can rent water sports as well.
What makes your business stand out from others in your category?
We are tucked away in a secluded corner of Orlando, Florida. We are an exclusive oasis on the private shores of Lake Bryan. This makes your event really truly about you because of privacy.
What is your best piece of advice for brides or grooms?
To truly be present in the moment and enjoy your day. Don’t let the small things affect your day. Hire amazing vendors so that you don’t have to worry about anything other than showing up and having an amazing time.
What current trends have you seen at weddings that personally like the most?
We love bridal parties with fun colored or personalized robes. They look amazing in photos right out by the lake! A lot of tropical style robes are in style right now!
What some of their previous couples had to say…
“If you are looking for your own Paradise on your very special day, then Paradise Cove is the place to be. The lights, the palm trees, and the cool breeze off the lake are only a few reasons why you should get married here. My husband and his groomsmen had a BLAST entering in on the speed boat, and we had a great time exiting on it. It was so GREAT to have our own little Island.” – Tamara
“The beauty of this venue really speaks for itself the second you lay eyes on the gorgeous landscape and lakeside view! We were a little bit nervous about having an outdoor wedding in early summer, and low and behold we found ourselves practicing the dreaded “rain plan” in the pouring rain the day before our wedding. The staff did everything they could to make sure we got the wedding of our dreams (the rain did not fully clear until the guests were seated and it was our time to walk), but they somehow pulled it off seamlessly outdoors as planned! The entire evening was absolutely perfect in every way. We had countless compliments on how beautiful our venue was. Kayli was so helpful from the first time we took a tour of the place, through answering any questions I had through email, and even on the day of the event. There is not one single negative thing I could say about this venue!!” – Kristin
“Paradise Cove is an absolute gem! The perfect setting for our wedding. The staff is very helpful and made sure our day was perfect! This venue is the best-kept secret in Orlando. The lighting, the décor, it feels so “Florida” but not the typical “beach wedding” that we all think of. It is perfect in every way.” – Jennifer
