From waterside to city-side, casual to sophisticated, Florida’s Paradise Coast is filled with exciting options for celebrating your big day. Here’s a look at just a few.
For a day as special as your wedding, why not be surrounded in an atmosphere filled with historic charm? The Naples Historic District in the Third Street South downtown area offers several memorable locations, including Palm Cottage, Naples’ oldest house, and the adjacent Norris Gardens. Several locally owned restaurants, including Ridgway Bar & Grill, offer intimate private dining areas and garden courtyards, perfect for smaller nuptials.
Florida’s Paradise Coast provides all the elements for the beach ceremony of your dreams: soft white sand, gentle waves, swaying palms and magical sunsets. Many beach resorts offer everything you need on site to make your day unforgettable. You and your guests will enjoy a truly tropical ambiance and that feeling of being away from it all—with every convenience easily accessible. For public beaches, South Beach on Marco Island and multiple sites along Naples beach are popular ceremony spots with spectacular sunset views.
Love Gone Wild

The Sweet Liberty sailing catamaran is a popular choice for a sunset cruise for smaller groups, while two luxury yachts, the Marco Island Princess and the newly renovated Naples Princess, can each accommodate more than 100 guests. What could be more romantic than sipping champagne at sunset and dancing under the stars?
Times are challenging, but your dream wedding can still be a reality on Florida’s Paradise Coast. Here, you can make up for everything you’ve been missing: The laughs and the splashes on our pristine, white sand beaches. The excitement and the adventure that comes with exploring the untouched wilderness of the Everglades. The incredible meals prepared by world-class chefs who can’t wait to cook for you. And the unforgettable moments you and your guests will have enjoying them.
