Juno Beach, Fla. (April 17, 2023) – Say “I do” at Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC)! In a special contest, Loggerhead Marinelife Center and partnered vendors will provide a free, sustainable luxury wedding to one lucky couple. To be eligible, participants must live in Martin County and Palm Beach County and create a video explaining what a sustainable wedding means to them and why they want one. Couples can submit their video entries from April 18 through June 1 on LMC’s website.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center will host the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for up to 75 guests. The Center’s exquisite, new event space provides the perfect backdrop for weddings, with indoor and outdoor options that have a direct view of the Center’s outdoor sea turtle hospital.
