Sarasota Beach Wedding Locations

Previously ranked as the #1 beach in the United States, Siesta Key beach weddings are popular for many reasons. With sand like sugar, warm gulf waters, and renowned sunsets, Siesta Key Beach is our most loved beach wedding location. It has consistently been in the top 5 beaches in the world and was named the #2 beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor! There are a few different location options on Siesta Key beach, all near parking and the Gulf Wave Pavilion.


“The biggest little city on Florida’s gulf coast”, Venice in Florida is known for its romantic atmosphere and blue ocean water. If you’re searching for a beach that will give you an intimate setting with a sea shell shoreline, you’ve came to the right place! With shoreline stretching for miles, we’ll also be able to accommodate an intimate ceremony in the sands that everyone loves to dig their toes into.


An extension of the beautiful Venice Beach in Florida and the famous Sharky’s On The Pier Restaurant, this Annex offers a beautiful ocean view right off the natural shoreline it is most known for.

You can also have your wedding ceremony near the Maxine Barritt pavilion just South of Sharky’s Restaurant.


Another scenic escape that you and your visitors will love is the Lido Key Beach location. Generally less crowded than most beaches, it’s beautiful waterway channel that leads out into the Gulf of Mexico and its open water is a gorgeous view. It’s a beautiful waterway to behold as the white sand of the shore gently slopes and dissolves into the blue of the water. The beach ceremony location is near the Holiday Inn and a short driving distance from restaurants like Tommy Bahama and Daiquiri Deck.


Located in Sarasota County, just south of Siesta Key, Nokomis Beach is quiet, laid back, and perfect for nature lovers with its abundance of sea shells and a natural landscape.
