Astound your guests as you exchange your wedding vows on the “Stage of Triumph” located on the Oasis Lawn. This old-Florida Style Zoysiagrass lawn is reminiscent of the lawns located on plantations throughout the south in the grander times at the turn of the century. Surrounding the lawn is a border of natural Florida vegetation, making the lawn as grand as it is very intimate. The center focal point of the lawn is the “Stage of Triumph”, this stone stage and arches create an honorable sense of importance due to the permanent mass created by its presence. Perpendicular to the stage is a reflection pond filled with beautiful Japanese Koi. Their vivid colors trimmed by the stone border of the coping of the pond create a living picture and frame. Surrounding the reflection pond and “Stage of Triumph” are a collection of rare and unusual specimen palms, as well as tropical foliage originating from all over the world.
After sharing a captivating ceremony with your guests, a most unusual and amazing reception awaits. While enjoying a pleasant stroll over a stone bridge above a pond and gleaming waterfalls showcasing tropical fish in vivid hues of blue, yellow, and red, the mesmerizing sounds of the sitar or Kora beckons. As you enter the canvas tent of free-flowing chiffon liners, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are passed. While your guest wait Mocko Jumbie stilt walkers pose to create memorable photos, and your guests wait with anticipation of your personal appearance and attention.
