With the legalization of same-sex marriage in the state of Florida on January 6, 2015, the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort welcomes all couples who seek to celebrate their wedding, renew their vows or formalize a previous commitment ceremony to a legally recognized marriage.
“We welcome legalization of same-sex marriage in the state of Florida. As a brand, Hyatt has a culture of inclusiveness and we proudly support our LGBT colleagues and guests. The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort is LGBT friendly, providing exceptional services to all couples seeking a venue to celebrate their wedding or honeymoon at our tropical paradise,” said Brian Kramer, General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort in Bonita Springs, Florida.
To celebrate legalization, any new wedding booked at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort from January 6, 2015 through March 31, 2015 will be entered into a drawing to win a free 5-day, 4-night honeymoon at the resort.
Hyatt has demonstrated a dedication to the LGBT community for both associates and guests.
The original rainbow flag, called the Freedom Flag, was devised by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The design has undergone several revisions since its debut with 8 colored stripes, and today the most common variant consists of 6 stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
