Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Our Love Story
On a cold New Years Eve 2012, two people decided to go out and hang out with friends to ring in the new year. Both individuals decided that they would do something different than prior years. Both of them just wanted to get back to being themselves and being happy for what the future may hold for them. The place to ring in new beginnings was at Hollywood Casino with lots of friends and live music.
When the two people were introduced to each other through mutual friends there seem to be a spark between them. They got away from the loud music and talked and laughed. They seemed to enjoy each others company. Tony left shortly before midnight making Roxanne wonder where he went. Tony left early to get home because he had to work 3rd shift the next day. Roxanne wondered if they would ever run into each other again.
Roxanne did not have to wait very long because they connected on facebook and became good friends. After many long phone calls and getting to know each other they decided to hang out one Sunday to watch basketball games and NFL playoffs. They hit it off and had a lot in common. Each time they hung out it ended with a hug and nice hanging out with you.
Things changed with the 3rd time of just hanging out as friends. A magical kiss changed everything. From that moment on Roxanne and Tony started dating. After about 6 months Roxanne and Tony knew their relationship was a special one and children were introduced into the fold and the rest is history.
Tony and Roxanne have been together for about 5 years, have blended their beautiful families and bought a home together. This June, 2018 they will speak vows for their love and seal the deal for their happy ever after!
Hotel & Resort
Fort Lauderdale Beach!
Ocean Sky Hotel & Resort is an ‘on-the-sand’ hotel nestled on Fort Lauderdale Beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and overflowing with fun! A short distance from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airport (FLL) and the nearest Amtrak station, commuting to this destination wedding will be a cinch. Once you arrive, the salty fresh air and sparkling sunlight over this ocean view from the deck will take your breath away.
Take some time to relax on your trip: an east facing balcony will start your mornings rising
with the sun! Feel the spacious expanse the Florida coast brings from your balcony; play a round of morning putt putt and celebrate ‘international 5 o’ clock’, ocean-side at the tiki bar. Rentals are available along the coastline for jet skis and some places offer boats or shared bicycles. Fort Lauderdale beach can be very busy and hard to find parking for; instead of wasting time looking for a space, Ocean Sky provides a private valet lot for your convenience and a private beach to soak up fun.
After your car is stowed away, feel free to walk the shore line, taking in the sun and tides; hail a cab, uber or lyft ride for stress-less adventuring or look to any of the rental bikes at city kiosks located along the beach to enjoy the view and travel freely. BCT (Broward County Transportation) has easy bus routes along the beach and connect to the Tri-County area. Or take an iconic ride on the Sun Trolley throughout downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Once you land, catch up with fellow guests over a variety of entertainment options and international flavors! Only 20 minutes away from Downtown Fort Lauderdale, this hotel is well located to view a show at the Broward Performing Arts Center, catching a concert at the amphitheatre overlooking Riverside, exploring the unknown with Museum of Science and Discovery or interacting with physics and sound in the park across from the museum.
Experience a mouthful of gourmet cuisine in local bars and restaurants downtown or along the beach. Taste some of the locals’ Sea Cuisine, Italian, Greek, Asian and Latin favorites. Catch a unique show and palate at the historic Mai Kai; go for a Fort Lauderdale original for Cuban cuisine, Las Vegas. Although there is no need to leave your hotel for a delicious meal! Just walk down to our on-site restaurant, Cedar’s Palace and enjoy an affordable Inter-Continental meal with ocean views from 7 am to 10 pm.
Shop for a souvenir to hold this special trip’s memories - - at the on-site gift shop at Ocean Sky. There are also a multitude of local stores along the beach or Galleria Mall, minutes from Fort Lauderdale beach.
After a long day of catching up with friends and family, offering congratulations and support to Roxanne & Tony and exploring the city, unwind in Ocean Sky’s hot tub or don’t miss gym day in the expanded fitness center. Put any leftovers away in your in-room fridge and have sweet dreams in our comfortable rooms. Enjoy your stay as we wish all the best to Roxanne & Tony!
