An unforgettable destination wedding can be accessible and affordable. The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, in Southwest Florida, can offer your clients convenience with a variety of options in a romantic, natural setting—and a passport is not required!

The Perfect Beach Wedding
This island sanctuary features warm gulf breezes and year-round sunshine. From secluded islands to wide-open stretches of white sand, your clients are sure to find the location of their dreams. There are many beachfront resorts that make planning their special day a pleasure. With special packages and year-round availability, the options are endless.

Lovers Key State Park
Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the recreation area includes more than 1,900 acres of breathtaking natural habitat and 2.5 miles of beaches. This provides a dramatic backdrop for a unique, turn-of-the-century gazebo that is available for weddings. The picturesque, open-air structure and the park’s secluded Gulf-front setting have bolstered Lovers Key’s recognition as Florida’s most romantic state park.

Edison & Ford Winter Estates
The beautiful and tropical landscape of the winter residence of legendary automobile maker, Henry Ford, friend and neighbor of inventor Thomas Edison, make the memories of a special wedding day last forever. Guests will be surrounded by royal palms, historic bamboo, orchids and other tropical plants that create the perfect ambiance for a wedding. The estates offer several outdoor site locations including romantic gardens and spectacular river views.

The Historic Burroughs Home
The romantic backdrop of a historic Georgian Revival mansion on the Caloosahatchee River is the perfect setting for a garden wedding. Built in 1901 by cattleman John Murphy, the home has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984. Brides may select the front porch or a garden gazebo for a sunset ceremony.
