Picture Perfect Wedding: Magical moments sparkle at Melissa and Michael’s Wedding

Pineland FL, Tarpon Lodge, Weddings

At Tarpon Lodge, we can’t say enough about the wonderful people who celebrate the most special occasion of their lives with us. During the year or so of wedding planning, we feel like we really get to know each couple and their families – in most cases, we establish friendships that last way beyond the wedding day, and we treasure those relationships.

One example is Melissa (Rodriguez) and Michael Meehan. Married at Tarpon Lodge on January 25, 2014, Melissa now teaches kindergarten and is working on her Ph.D. in education. Michael, a U.S. Marine, teaches special needs students and is also a soccer coach. They also both volunteer in the community to help abandoned and neglected dogs find their forever homes. Michael and Melissa are two of the most wonderful people we know!

We love weddings at Tarpon Lodge. Our family and our staff get to know each wedding couple and their families, and over the year or so of planning, they become like family to us as well. And while each wedding has its own special and unique flavor, there is something about the fresh breezes, sparkling Gulf waters and romantic moonlight that create a most magical and memorable experience for all our couples and their guests.

One especially beautiful wedding reception took place on May 5, 2012 when Noelle and John Montgomery brought 115 of their closest friends and relatives to Tarpon Lodge. We recently talked with Noelle and John and they shared their experience with us. Here’s what they had to say:

ckruddyThanks to our quick thinking staff members, “Ruddy” is one lucky bird. Last week, Oleg, Joe, Angela and Michelle were on the staff boat from Cabbage Key to Tarpon Lodge when they noticed a Ruddy Turnstone shorebird drowning.  They quickly pulled him to safety, put him in a box and took him to the Clinic for Rehabilitation Wildlife (CROW) drop off location in Capel Coral (http://crowclinic.org).

On Friday, we checked in with CROW and learned that Ruddy is recovering quite nicely.  He has scabbing on his legs and wings from his struggle, and he is underweight, but his appetite is good and he is expected to make a full recovery.  If not for the compassionate and swift attention of our crew, this would not have been the case.
