The amazing thing about Sarasota is that there are so many beautiful vistas. From taking your photos to the backdrop for your vows, the beauty that surrounds us here is truly magical, and it is hard to go wrong when you choose a location. Still, there are a few iconic choices here in town that you may wish to consider.
The Beach – Pick a beach, any beach! If you don’t mind a little wind and salt air, Sarasota’s white sands, blue water, and wide open skies guarantee a stunning wedding. Both Siesta and Lido Key beaches are often the site of nuptials, but if you choose to get married on the beach, be sure to get the necessary permits. A great option is to contact one of the many wedding planners in town who specialize in all aspects of the beach wedding as they have mastered all the necessary preparations.
Selby Botanical Gardens – The grand original home of Marie Selby welcomes you as you enter these enchanted gardens; and with the Bay as a backdrop and lush trees and vegetation, your photos are sure to be amazing. The Selby is well known for its world-renowned orchid collection, making orchids a lovely choice for your bouquets and venue decor.
The Ringling Museum – John Ringling was one of the five brothers who owned and operated the circus rightly called “The Greatest Show on Earth.” In 1911, John and his wife, Mable, purchased 20 acres of waterfront property in Sarasota which today showcases some of the most beloved gardens, artwork, and views in Sarasota. Choosing the historic Ca’ d’Zan or Mable’s rose gardens will give you the opportunity to stage a wedding that is 100% Sarasota.
These are only three of the beautiful settings to hold your Sarasota wedding. Under year-round beautiful sunshine, your friends and family will remember your special day as one truly memorable and special. Looking for more ideas?
