Memorable Beach side Weddings at The Palms

At The Palms at Pelican Cove, the staff shares one philosophy about weddings. No two are the same. Every wedding celebration is as unique as the Bride and Groom themselves.  The Palms is the host location for many dozens of weddings yearly and takes great pride in having been selected Best Wedding Venue on St Croix by the readers of the Virgin Islands Daily News consecutively for several years.

Although The Palms has 1400 feet of beach front, most weddings occur in the lovely Coconut Palm Grove, set in close approximation to the Common Areas and the Guest Buildings.  The natural palm arches leading from the Coconut Palm Grove to the shoreline where the ocean kisses the sand, is a memorable location for the “I Do’s”.   The crash of the ocean waves and the rustle of the palm fronds seem to evoke the perfect island ambiance for an ocean side beach wedding.  Your first dance can be barefoot on the beach, with palm trees swaying to the beat of the music. The outdoor restaurant & bar spill right onto the sandy beach.   Your options for the many aspects of a wedding and reception at The Palms are almost endless.

For a couple traveling alone or larger weddings, we are happy to announce Nicole Reed with Events by Nicole as the  wedding planner of choice, to ensure a special and memorable celebration.  Venue space for Wedding Ceremonies is usually our lovely Coconut Palm Grove, a secluded ocean side beach setting with a large expanse of soft sand set among towering Palms, with the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea just feet away.  Venue space for Cocktail Hours and Receptions  is most often in one of several beach side locations.  We offer a Restaurant with open windows looking out to the Ocean or our open-air beach side dining pavilion, which offers a more relaxed setting, depending on the size of your reception.

We are happy to offer catering for your cocktail hour and reception, working with Nicole of Events by Nicole for the actual details of the event.  The Palms staff has experience working wedding receptions and is dedicated to you and your special day.

We have a great special offer for destination weddings in which there may be a number of family and friends attending from afar:
