Pelican Grand Beach Resort2000 North Ocean Boulevard Fort Lauderdale, FL
Pelican Grand Beach Resort brings Old Florida–style elegance to weddings and romantic getaways. Beautiful woodwork, white rocking chairs on sweeping verandas, oceanfront dining and oversize suites set on a private stretch of palm-studded sand complement gracious service and a long list of outdoor activities for couples and families alike.
Sunning on the beach or by the heated infinity pool, adventure on the “lazy river” tubing ride and spectacular snorkeling and diving only 100 yards offshore keep water lovers entertained. Other guests spend their time exploring Fort Lauderdale or shopping at the designer outlets of Sawgrass Mills, only 15 minutes away.
When it’s time to refuel, North Ocean Grille is as known for its American classics as its scrumptious seafood, like Chilean sea bass and pistachio-encrusted mahi-mahi. Outside tables enjoy expansive sea views, while stylish interiors pair charming southern accents with soft piano music. For dessert, guests of all ages will appreciate the old-fashioned ice cream parlor onsite.
Most brides and grooms take their vows on the beach as the sun sets across the Atlantic. A buffet or full-service dinner may follow atop one of the resort’s two oceanfront rooftop decks or on a large tented patio by the sea.
